I've noticed some of my photo descriptions have been changed recently. Not a big deal but I'd prefer my name didn't appear beside something I didn't write. Does anyone have an explanation. Thank you. — Jan 5, 2017

Hello Russell, 

Thank you for reaching out with a great question. First off, I want to apologize for the changes to your photo captions. I understand not wanting your name to be attributed to something that you didn't write, and if you let me know which captions might be incorrect, I can correct them. In the same way that we pride ourselves on publishing guide-book quality descriptions, we also feel that this applies to photo captions. When we feel that a caption might need a bit of polishing, we take some creative license. I will make a note to the rest of the team, and instead of making corrections ourselves, we'll reach out to contributors first. 

Let me know your thoughts, and we can work toward a better solution from there.
