I voted for email.

 

A bit more information would be useful too. Sometimes I see the picture needs posts where there are 10's of thousands already on Alamy that match, so I wonder what the customer wants that is more specific that we could strive to shoot. Maybe if you used email (or any other method) instead of Twitter, it would allow for more details to be given (due to the character limit of twitter).

 

Thanks,

Geoff.

Will the picture needs come with a proposed budget?

You won't get me out of my chair if the price doesn't even cover the parking ticket.

Forum would be my first choice, e-mail second. What the heck is twitter?

 

It's where twits go to send messages......not that I'd know (only sometimes!).  :)

Email for me - also allows Akamy to be more selective if required, like it or not we all specialise 

 

Please not Twitter (even if I do use it regularly) we do not want to over publicise the needs, that is outside the Alamy regulars

Forum is fine, at least people that keep alive the community suggest improvements help other and newbie can have a little reward for their effort. E-mail maybe can be used for more specific needs, when you know that someone has the access to the specific needs, just as an example the geographical advantage to live near where events, news, place of your interest are.

Definitely email. Plenty of contributors travel and it's much easier to check your email than browse the forums when traveling.

I'm on Twitter but I don't check it every day. And, even though I'm following Alamy I'm not sure I always see your tweets.

E-mail with the "Pictured Needs" name in the title, is the best for ensuring it gets seen, followed by a special thread here, twitter is pointless unless the photographer sets up notifcations, but even then if like me you are on twitter, it's easy to miss things
