I have a project and have several retired and current volunteers. I ask all volunteers to send me their images so I can put them in the acknowledgement page. However some don't reply me (who are also retired ones). How should I handle them?

  • Use a generic image as the placeholder for those who I don't have image, because they should have a spot in the gallery?
  • Just use the images I have, because simply naming all volunteers in the text is sufficient?

  • You don't mention the nature of the project or the context. To be on the safe side you should assume that the volunteers that don't reply don't want their picture to be posted, so you should use a generic image. – Dave White Jun 12 at 14:31
  • I understand that we should assume that they don't want to have their picture posted. But my question is: should I use a generic image, or should I not include that image at all? My project is about community development, but how does that different to other kinds of project? – Ooker Jun 12 at 14:51
  • how does that different to other kinds of project? I suppose it depends on the type of project and the volunteers preferences in general. E.g. for a small to mid-size company with an intranet project the assumption could be that it does not matter if they have an image up or not because everyone knows each other. should I use a generic image, or should I not include that image at all? It may come down to personal preference and to site design. I'd go for no image at all but, again, it's personal preference. – Dave White Jun 12 at 17:24
