Quote: I may be new here, but I have noticed that this weekly competition is getting very few entries. As a point to debate, would it not be ab idea to make it a monthly competition in an attempt to attract more entries and thus interest?

It might be an idea to put your thoughts into the forum section rather than the comments as it seems not too many people look here Smile

If I come up with any words of wisdom I'll return (but had better do some work since that's what they pay me to do here!)

Some time ago members agreed to two changes in rules (comments anytime, sepia toned o.k.). I've set out the amended rules in a new topic, so when setting a challenge one can copy paste the amended rules.

Photos uploaded for challenges must be the member's own work and not copies, however made, of another author's work. I would have thought this was obvious.

To answer a question, in the past many judges have "bothered" to comment on individual photos after the judging. 03/11/2012 - 2:12 PM

I think we should stick to the rules until they are changed. We can't pick and choose which rules we observe, and which rules we don't. Until now everyone has observed the rules.Until the rules are changed by mutual consent, stick to them.

Jestertheclown
3 Nov 2012 - 12:03 PM

Rule 6?

Does it make a difference if someone posts a comment prior to judging?

Would any of you,as the judge, be swayed by what another person had written? It's only their opinion,after all.

Or would you judge the shots purely on their strengths and weaknesses, disregarding what others think?

I have an opinion which I'll share with you later. In the meantime, what does everyone else think?

Bren.

OK, sorry about commenting before judging is complete, but what's up with that? Who really wants to go back and bother commenting afterwards? I mean, really, what if we get 20 uploads. Does anyone think they will take the time to sit down and comment on all those after the judging is over??

Easier to make the comments as the images are uploaded. It shouldn't affect judging at all. Maybe someone could explain the reasoning behind this for me? I'm just new here.........mmmkay?

Also, might it not also be interesting to get some critiques, and maybe some modifications and make this a bit more interesting. Maybe more people would upload. IMO getting comments might also generate more interest in the group.

OK, off my soapbox for now.

Hi Everyone,

The weekend starts here, and I'm hoping you'll have some time to upload something for this week's challenge.

Anything unusual/unconventional/humorous that goes/gets someone/something from A to B is what I'll be looking for, and of course it should look good in Black & White.

Hoping to get loads of entries this week.

Bit quiet at the moment.

Cheers

Dear all,
Firstly, I'd like to say thanks for picking my image, I am really grateful.
Secondly, I am really sorry that I did not set the follow on challenge.
I literally just found out I was ill & have been in hospital. If not for an annual check-up, I would have been in hospital still, and probably very ill indeed.
Of course, I could not get on the 'net, so this is a mega surprise to me.
I've been allowed out for the evening, but have to go back tomorrow for a quick check up before being (hopefully) allowed home for Xmas dinner before having to be re-admitted for another 2 weeks or so.
Treatment will be ongoing, but I expect to be taking photos (and uploading) again soon.


Sorry again, and Merry Xmas to all
Live life to the full,and enjoy every minute
George
