Would it be such a bad thing if the bar was set higher?
Make it a worthwhile accomplishment.

Not to say that Pete's choices were up to much..... Wink

Not another bloody Red Squirrel or Osprey that mere mortals cant get near without a suitably long 7k lens and 3k body...let alone the cost of the Osprey or Squirrel location!Tongue

After quite a few years here I would still like the site to appreciate what a tog has achieved with a basic set up....and that includes a basic PP package....Not CS 6 or the likeWink

Can you honestly say that since the 2nd of february that not one shot, no matter what genre, is worthy of being highlighted as pretty damn good.

Yes I like wildlife and it would be nice to see that area recognised….. but that was not the point I was making.

I am hoping that the new panel will raise the bar and recognise excellence across all genres …. so it's up them to show us they canSmile

There has never been a 'rule' that ECs and HCs have to be awarded daily.
Awards are only one small part of the team's responsibilities, and I know for a fact they are committed to looking at every image uploaded to the galleries.
I am sure they are on top of things.

It was mentioned in a recent thread from the team. They are looking at either a new version of the GE or an alternative. At the moment it has been put on ice until the new format is decided.

Well done for holding the Fort Malc whilst all are at home watching the boxWink Epz is 24/7 and surely managing it so would be a benefit to the business...and quite probably its paying membersWink

I do hope the new format includes more adverts for crap that nobody wantsTongue

As for the awards Trev has raised a very pertinent point....Roll on the Bored Room MeetingSmile
