Almost POTW time and very few new PAs

Quote:I thought that POTW was picked from the PAs not HCs? Someone will pick up on that pretty quick i'd think.


I seem to remember that there was some discussion about that quite some time ago, and then someone mentioned that being able to pick an HC as POTW was necessary sometimes because there weren't EC awards every week (same might apply now to PA), and that seemed like a good idea to everyone.

There were three PA's to choose from, Conrad.

However, I seem to remember that the rules were changed some time ago, whereby Pete could choose POTW from wherever he chose although it was only implemented once when the image with most votes from that week got POTW...might have been a landscape from Theresa_H.

I could be wrong.

Ah, okay. That should have been enough to choose a POTW from.

Ouch, so that doesn't say much good about the PA awards when Pete chooses an HC image as POTW...

From now on I'll be paying closer attention to what kind of image gets picked as POTW! Wink

Personal choice which is what it's all about. I don't agree with everyone's HC/PA choices likewise not everyone will agree with mine but on balance, a team of people selecting from the pool will hopefully produce a selection that will keep most people happy.

I like this week's POTW which is why I gave it an award (an HC nomination). I just happened to think it wasn't PA material bearing in mind what had been chosen for PAs/Pending PAs Smile

Whilst here - welcome to the 3 new team members Smile

i also gave the other hc nom to that image it really stood out, and will make a great canvas print for the winner

Personally I have looked at the shortlist picked by the new bunch and there are some nice images in there but not that many that I'd give a PA to, yet there have been some this week that I really liked but could not nominate for an award because for some reason I no longer have the ability to, I have to wait for the new guys to shortlist it for me.

I find the shortlist helpful for browsing quickly when I am really busy but it is only what others deem to be the best of the bunch.
I would like this shortlist kept but I would also like the ability to browse the galleries back so I can add my own selections to the shortlist as well.

Do you not have the nominate for PA/HC buttons at the bottom of the page when browsing the gallery normally?

Don't understand Sam - why can't you nominate photos?

I don't know why.
Maybe that's one for the technical team.

Hi Sam,

Just had a quick jump into your account and everything appears to be fine. I was able to see the buttons to nominate on the latest photo uploaded.

You don't have to wait for a photo to be shortlisted by the shortliest team if you don't want to. As long as you are logged in, all you have to do is scroll down to the photo and press the appropriate button (in the red box). This will place the nomination for the specific award.

its probably the wrong thread , but i was just thinking after looking at the amount of hc/pa noms for the given award, not sure how many had control previous, but if theres more members given the vote, would that make it easier to achive the awards, what i mean is if thers say.... 5 people who can give te awards and require 2 votes for a hc, it would be easier to achive a hc if there were,,,, 15 members who had the vote, or doesn`t it work like that ?

Or just reduce the votes needed and maybe go back to how it wsa where individuals have the ability to award HC's on their own. We are , after all supposed to be a bunch of reasonably decent pros invited to take part in this on the quality of our work.
