It would appear, from the comments on my ad, that many members thought you had to be invited to be GEs.

I'm also happy to do a stint if you think my opinion is worth it
Yes, I would like to be GEs. Period, when you need.
I would be love to be a guest editor. I tend to look through every photo every couple of days anyway so would be fun to put that to some use.
Anytime is good or me if I can be of help,
Thanks for the Ad John

Please follow these rules
Look through all the photos uploaded to the gallery in your week of appointment. With your special button click ones you think deserve an award - be selective only choose the very best and do not award friends / favourite genres unless they also genuinely deserve an award. The idea is your Awarded photos should be the very best pictures uploaded to ePHOTOzine - no bias please.
Would regard this as very special, awaiting an appointment. Available on 12-18 August at the moment.
consider yourself appointed Ron
Pete, if no-one claims the week starting 29 July, then I bags that one.
Could I choose July 8 - 14?
I can take 1-7 July, or 15-21 July, whatever's best for whoever wants the other one
5th August is fine for me but hapy with any of the above.

That's exactly the point I had previously made!
In addition, several people did not realised that they had to come on to this forum and select a date. Many thought that, by leaving a message saying that they were interested, that someone would contact them. In that respect I did and told them to come back and select a date, which some now have.
22nd-28th July?? Is that week still open? Happy to do that week - or will choose another later if you prefer.
I too thought you had to be 'invited' to be GE!
Well into the last few hours of my stint now and a very enjoyable week it has been, I have given out many GEAs on photos I have felt worthy and many votes on those I felt were very good. I have learnt a great deal too from this experience:
It takes more than a long lens to take a good wildlife photo.
It takes more than a good macro lens to take a good macro.
It takes more than a naked female to take a good nude/glamour shot.
It takes more than a 17-40 to take a good landscape
and so on ... !!
And there are a huge amount of talented photographers on this site, much more so than you realise till you do this ! I would suggest anyone to give it a go ...
I have been very unselfish and unbiased in my voting and voted purely on the artistic, perceptual and technical merits of the images combined as well as those shots i thought were unusual and unique and deserved recognition.
Now i need to go off and be inspired by this week to move my personal photography into new realms too
Many thanks for the opportunity
