Think running a POTY comp is a really good idea.

Can you think of a better title than 'POTY'?
Because I think that most us on here could be desctibed as 'POTY' already

How about "Tog of the year"...who doesn't like TOTY?

Quote:So in the 10-6-4-2-1 scenario someone who comes first three times but only enters three gets 33 points (10+10+10+3) and someone who enters all 12 and is shortlisted gets 36 points (12+24) And that's the bit I'm struggling with. Do you feel it's better to get shortlisted on all 12 challenges than enter just three but win?


Nah.... you speedreaders Smile 30 points and 12 points, wouldn't give anything for entering. 10 for a win reducing to 1 for shortlisting

That's like an E for Effort, isn't it. I suppose I would appreciate that 1 point, too...

Could give a bonus point or so, for entering all 12 stages.
Better than getting a point per entry.
Killing any chance I had of getting any points Sad

Sounds like a cracking idea Pete. Yet another good reason to try and improve my technique.

Sounds like a bit of a lottery! all the togs with all the gear and know how will be winning consistently as they do! Sad the rest have two chances of winning, a dogs chance and no **** ***chance LOL!

placements......... how many? if more than a thousand entries are received should there not be a % of users who get placed rather than 10 or 20 or however many is the standard? just an idea that might motivate people a little more, knowing even if entry's are high they can still have a good chance of having the images placed.
