Shorter caps?

Hey all,

I'm interested to know how many of you would appreciate it if I wrote some shorter captions now and then. Many of my captions are substantial in length, and I think it might make a nice change of pace if I were to throw in some shorter ones once in a while.

On a somewhat-related note, I'm also considering adding tabs to the top to filter the captions here by certain categories. This idea was originally just going to separate my captions into short, medium and long, but I wondered if there were any other categories you'd like to see? A section for the more sincere or sentimental captions, perhaps? Let me know what you guys think!

Also, apologies if the layout goes through some changes as I try to implement this - it may take me some time!

  1. Shorter captions could be a nice change of pace. Also with the tabs would be a nice addition, maybe a tab for multiple image / series captions would be nice.

  2. Excellent idea about a 'series' tab, I'll make that one of the changes. Thanks for the feedback!

  3. I am not a fan of very long captions. It depends on the picture as to wheather or not I begin reading. Just my personal preference. So far, even your long captions are very good.
    Thanks for the interest.

  4. I prefer shorter caps -- more of a challenge for the one doing the captions, I imagine.

  5. I prefer captions that are no more than a paragraph or two. Also, categories through tags are very helpful to find what I like. For example, I'm never interested in bondage, always interested in "hormones". I also prefer single caps to multiple-caption stories, so filtering by that would be nice as well.

    1. I started out capping a lot of longer caps as well. While I prefer these, I went to shorter ones just because I got a little burnt out spending a lot of time on one cap.

      While I don't like caps that are like 3 sentences, a lot can be done in a paragraph or so if it's done right which I know you will!

    2. Heh, thanks for the vote of confidence! Y'know, mine started out short and just got longer so I guess I went the other way to you!
