The concept behind the group is very simple - photos of the contents of your bag. That's it really.
Most people here get that and then some other people ... well, we have no idea what they think this group is about - they've obviously never bothered to so much read the group's title, much less the rules, or ever seen the other photos in the group - so we get submissions of portraits, landscapes, and all sorts of totally random off-topic stuff. We tag them WWTT (What Were They Thinking) and immediately remove these people from the group. Life's too short to be fussing about with people like that.
Here's a reminder of the few other things we don't allow either:
JABA Just a bag or bags alone.
SOSO Single object show offs. We're nosy - we want to see everything. Not just the one single thing or small selection of things.
SORO Selection Of Random Objects. It has to be things you carry around in your bag, not things that are are all one colour, or things on your desk, or things you like....
POP or PIB A Pet or Person in a Bag. (That old, old, old joke isn't funny any more.)
PESO Photographic Equipment show off.
WIMP What's In My Pocket. We're not about EDC (Everyday Carry stuff) If it isn't something you carry around in a bag but something you wear or keep in your pockets - it doesn't belong in this group.
Wallets Pictures of the contents of your wallet. A wallet isn't a bag.
NA No Advertising. We're not Esty.
No Shopping We're about seeing your personal day-to-day possessions - not what you've just bought - and we're definitely not about seeing people's groceries.
REP Repetitive Content Shot - that's when someone puts in more than one photo of the same bag and of same contents. Just the one pic is enough. Give other members a chance.
MUBs No Make Up Bags
No Pencil cases - think about it - how is a pencil case a bag?
(Of course pics of cameras, wallets, make up bags, pencil cases etc. as part of the contents of a bigger bag are fine.)
No Diptych or Triptych pictures.
Also if you spot something you think doesn't belong in the pool this is the place you can put a link and/or a thumbnail link to it.

Oh yes I do know Zombie's don't exist. Use of Zombie was for entertainment. This bag is with me all the time, especially when I travel between home and school. It's a four hour trip through the mountains and some times the weather is pretty bad. I just wanted enough to get me through a night on the road if the roads closed and I was stuck in my car. Question, guess the photo didn't make the cut to be posted!

Removed three submissions and members today: one was a selfie of a girl, another a photo of a solitary camera, the last a desktop full of all the Apple products some one owned. I'd lost the will to post thumbnails here. Whatever happened to people just simply taking photos of their bag's contents? It's not as if there aren't hundreds of other groups where people can post pictures of anything they like.
WWTT SOSO That brings back memories - there was a period in WIYB history where everyone was taking pictures of their iPods. Right around the time we thought bringing in a 'no single objects' was good idea for a rule.
