Endorse Phyllis
Endorse a member of 1x to show that you appreciate his/her work.
Endorsing for skills in Abstract photography
Phyllis is a talented abstract photographer. Abstract photography about finding art in the most unexpected places that other people would never see or think of photographing. Some of her photos are among the most popular abstracts in the entire 1x gallery.

Phyllis has done an amazing job organizing the forums, making new groups, appointing group admins and keeping the forums smooth, dynamic and interesting. Without Phyllis the 1x forums would be a much duller place. Phyllis has also put a tremendous amount of work into critique sharing her vast experience and helping new photographers discover their inner talent. Her strong dedication is an example to everyone. She is also a very warm and friendly person, always with a smile on her face, even when sorting out difficult situations.

What can i write about Phyllis? A lot! So much that the space is not sufficient here. Since she joint we all moderators know that this was an excellent choice. She is like a mom to us and when we are to rush with our decision she called us back. She is always there to give us a great deal of help. Hearing her voice on the phone makes ma calm and peaceful. She works hard every day to keep up the site and the site issues. An honest and heart full woman which i wish one day i can give her a huge hug. Her pictures are like dreams and her endless love to her husband she showed us makes her to a friend for which i never want to miss her around. May god bless you!

my hat of Phyllis. I really admire your input in the community with your energy, kindness, diplomacy, generosity, and thoughtful prevention and looking forward.
besides this great personality and warm heart, i also discovered a real artist with a very personal approach and vision, going her own way without caring to follow the trends or mainstream; always interesting in learning from others, and sharing her experience

How can i leave Phyl without an endorsement :-) The most wonderful patient well thought rational but warm hearted woman and fellow mod I can imagine. I appreciate your personality and your artistic skills. Always aside mainstream on own individual and so interesting ways. I am glad to have you met here

Even before I got moderator at 1x, Phyl has enlisted me as an administrator of the 1x Architecture Group. I noticed her cordial and objectiv nature very well. So it was not a difficult decision to me as I was asked to take over the job of a 1x moderator: I knew that Phyl is always understanding and ready to help.

This warmth and objectivity is also found in her photographic work. A mixture hard to succeed. She is successful and I admirably her work a lot.

Ralf found the exact words about Phyllis. I cannot do better especially in my poor english. But still, I want to endorse her with my own words.
When I became a member of 1X fourteen months ago, Phyllis was popping out of the rest of the crew and made me feel home in the community. I discovered that warm-hearted lady in the Forum "weekly theme" before the big change. Since than, I always felt the strong presence of her great personality, often behind the scene. The mutual comments on our images and the messages we send each other, were of a great value to bound us with a true friendship. There was a period that she was pretty absent and I missed her so much. But not so long ago, we were forging our contacts again. I'm so glad to see her coming back stronger than ever before and reaching as first L7 in the curation system. I truly wish that her way to L8 will be short. She would be a most valuable official curator and she is such a beautiful person. I truly hope to meet her for real on my next trip to the States. Phyllis, I really like you as a photographer, as a moderator/curator and most of all as a friend and soulmate.

Endorsing you sounds painful like you need endorsing and I see that I am restricted to only endorse 5 people a week which to me is a rather too regulated even too proscriptive restriction on my good nature. And I am uncertain about the need to endorse anyone since their abilities are apparent by their output (though the fact that we all crave appreciation is not lost on me). So your talents speak for themselves and having a chinning bar for this seems a little bit perverse in my opinion. I am certain that nothing I can add will alter this or add value. In fact in the list of "'''endorse for" I find it incredible that there is not a "because she is a nice person" category!

Having made all that clear I have to add that I don't know you other than through our exchanges on a private level and since we have never met I will never really know you. So I am unable to make anything other than a superficial assessment of you as a person. However I see that you appear tirelessly to offer your time in this enterprise which is 1X. You approach this effort with a very open mind and a caring thoughtful hand which is to your credit and can only be a benefit in an arena that is full of opinionated egoists who feel that because they have a camera that they are truly "photographers" yet they still have limited understanding of an art that takes years to perfect especially if they refuse to turn the camera to manual mode.

It has been a pleasure becoming acquainted with you I only wish that there wasn't such a huge geographical distance between us preventing me from actually getting to know you for real.

The first thing I would say is the 'Endorse for" category is far too narrow to encompass Phyllis!!! How can you choose between topics. Phyllis encompasses so much of this site, and has always been at its very heart.

For me, it's as much about her wise words throughout the site, her honest and insightful critiques where she goes beyond just a quick view but really lets you know how your picture makes her feel; also her steadying hand in the forums and interesting and insightful comments and feedback. And that's not to dismiss her own photographic talents, where she is always pushing boundaries in her love for what she's doing and seeing. On a personal level, she is one of the reasons that I am so happy to have found this site and she is one of the amazing people I call a friend beyond the ether!

I would like to endorse you dear Phyllis for your skills in photography. I admire your artistic approach very much, especially the creative way of capturing a subject matter and the ability to find the different point of view in your photography.
Your pictures reflect your beautiful personality and it is clear to everyone that you put the soul to your work.

You are doing a great job also as a crew member here on 1x.

I am so grateful for the possibility of getting to know you and work with you on the Black and White group. I remember what a big effort stood behind launching it.
I got to know you as a beautiful, kind, very patient, friendly and supportive person who always willingly help people.

I wish I could meet you some day and tell you much, much more... :)

Hi Phyllis,

This endorsement is a tribute to someone who is very important here by

I got to know Phyllis when she asked me to administrate the 'abstract' group .

She works incredibly hard. When she does something ...she takes care of it and in a generous way....
She is always friendly and willing to give a helping hand.
She ensures the smooth course of events at 1 x. com.

I want to thank her by writing this endorsement because she truly deserve it.

In France they will say: ' C'est une grande Dame... '

I wish you a lot of success in all what you do.

Phyllis might have been one of the most active moderator in 1x, she is abundant with energy and are never stingy in giving out her opinion. I came across a lot of her comments in curation, she is always encouraging and giving input which is very valuable for anyone who is really interested in improving his/her photography. Bravo Phyllis!

I want to express my support and congratulations to Phyllis for his work of photographic criticism, proving to be the first member of the universe to reach 1x L7. Without forgetting his creative vision as impregnating his artistic images large doses. Undoubtedly this person is a role model for me. Reiterating Congratulations I wish you well.

I would like to endorse Phyllis as a photographer but had trouble picking a category since she fits well in so many. She has an impressive portfolio.

Find particularly impressive your work in the forums, always being there answering questions, having a calming influence which I know from experience working online, how important and difficult it is. When the question asked is not within your ability to answer, you simply and plainly say so, refreshing. In little time you are back with a full explanation after getting the necessary facts. I'm sure everyone knows how important an asset you are to this site. Your efforts are very much appreciated.

Best Wishes

Phyllis is a member of great value for 1x, her critiques in the critique section are based on a deep knowledge of photography, great experience and at the same time she is an excellent abstract photographer herself.
She is always warm and supportive to new members, a person which motivates people, not to forget her amazing ability as a moderator to maintain a balance in the forum. Diplomatic and discreet but at the same time sharp and straightforward. Her extended knowledge of Psychology give her the advantage of been able to find an equilibrium between keeping a discussion alive and preserving a high standard, not by making statements but by asking thoughtful questions.
Phyllis is one of the members I consider the heart and soul of 1x.

Phyllis does a great job moderating the forums and answering questions. She has to deal with people asking the same question over and over and sometimes hostility from other members. Regardless, she always answers every post or makes sure someone else done so everyone is as clear as possible. Phyllis has a tough job, but she does it very well and the 1x forums would not be the same without her. I endorse and thank Phyllis for her excellent work.

Phyllis photos are impressive and beautiful. Each photo is designed with great sense of professionalism. Well Done. His photos deserve publications here or elsewhere. We can say that Phyllis learned the art of photography.
