That's my week over with, hope I did ok. I really enjoyed the experience and found out that we have some excellent talent here on epz as well as some very good Junior members. The quality of uploads daily are very high and I have a new found admiration for all GE and Pete when it comes to selecting for awards.

So overall I very good experience which I will definitely like to do again, although if I see one more camargue horse I will run to the hills Smile

Pete, I think a new thread may need to be started, so it shows up in the forums headings on the homepage, so people can instantly see it and don't have to search for it. I am sure lots of newbies on here are unaware that they can be a GE, and perhaps think that GEs are selected and not volunteers. I don't think it's something people don't want to do, just something they didn't know they could do Smile Try it, I am sure you will get lots of volunteers Grin

Thanks for your week Quoise this week it's Philip and then that's it...unless we can get some new blood to have a go.

Quote: Pete, I think a new thread may need to be started, so it shows up in the forums headings on the homepage,

Only thing with that is it won't be a new thread in a few posts so would soon disappear off the home page. At least this thread continues to be bumped up to the top of recent activity.
We tried a newsletter request but we got several people volunteer who just read the newsletter and aren't active on site ...and several let us down. So I'm not keen on promoting by that method either. Many of you are friends with other members, perhaps you could encourage one of your epz mates to have a go? Or invite someone you respect on site and send them a PM? They don't have to be highly active just committed to carry on through the week as judge, look at all the photos and only pick the best.

Lol sorry about that Wink


Quote: could we have one of those annoying Wink yellow banners at the top of the page when one logs in - announcing the GEA and asking for volunteers?

We don't tend to use them for regular messages, we could do with highlighting many aspects of the site, but as you say they can be annoying so we keep them to a minimum.

I'll do it again..............any time...............we've all just received an EPZ mail about the Big Dog, why not do the same for the Guest editor slot..............I'm sure there are members out there who do not know that they can become a GE for a week..........GrinGrinGrinGrinGrin

Just wondering...... Is there any reason why the HC's and EC's have all but stopped being awarded since I've been Guest Editor?

You're so good at picking photos that need an award that Pete can use his time to do something else? Wink

I think The Man has otherwise occupied this past week, but he is back again and will no doubt be very busy playing catch up.

Ok we have several previous volunteers (thank you) but no new names. So I'll let those who've done it before take the hot seat again and then we'll see what to do after that.
Are the following dates ok with everyone?
22 - 28 Apr - AnneWorner
29 Apr - 5 May - KBan
6 - 12 May -NaturesHaven

I haven't awarded many over the last few weeks (maybe all my favourites are on holiday*)


*Light sarcasm just for those who think I just give EC's out to certain members Wink
