Seems like this theme has run its course. Should we start the voting now?

May as well. Shame these threads aren't as popular anymore. I enjoyed seeing all the photos. Have people run out or is it because we're in the never-neverland forum now?

I agree and I think that has to do with some of it.

Yeah, I suspect that is the kiss of death for any thread that requires active attention. These threads were really starting to pick up in the other forum too.

I loved these threads but missed 2 before I realized they moved, and i only noticed because i accidentally clicked on the caption forum when trying to get to the tech forum...

IMO theres a bunch of themes yet
action/sports
macro
cgi?
lifestyle...
Ok maybe not a lot of themes left...

Maybe part of it, though it could be too many too fast too. I know I saw this thread and thought about pictures I'd like to put, then I remembered about it and now it's voting already.

Maybe we should make it a once weekly competition from now on. Thoughts?

Moving it has for sure dumped the participation. I rarely had gone to this sub forum before. With all the drafts and such on the go now it can get lost.

I also agree we need a bit more time for people to get shots in. A standard: New subject Monday, initial vote Friday-Sat, Final vote Sat-Sun, winner picks new topic would work. Or even extend it out a couple of weeks....

Not taken by me, as I'm in the photo... so not for votes, but I wanted to post something.



That's me on the left... for those who are wondering.

Yeah that's always the risk when creating a subforum.. but the drafts and such were all really starting to clutter up the OT forum.

Agreed. Perhaps a sticky for a week or two pointing people here for all the contests and such? It would be nice to get more people involved.

Can we get permission to have the round in the main forum for voting and such, this is not like the drafts were only a certain amount of people are involved. Any one could post so we should have it in the main forum and move it after the round is done. it is only a week long, it shouldn't hurt anybody's political discussions.

The fact that it has been on this thread has inhibited me from looking at it because I forget to check it. and it stops random people from looking and voting.

Also I would appreciate longer periods for posting and voting, I think longer then suggested already (I get sent out of town, or busy with work so I don't like rushing to try to post pictures and I like to go through everyone's photos. If we made it start monday and picture posting and voting ends the following wednesday (so a week and a half) and final voting is finished on the sat/sun and start again the monday with a new theme. This way it will be once ever two weeks, everyone has a chance to post and there won't be too many photo threads, I worry that if they occur too fast people will get sick of them and they'll disappear.

I think maybe we should have themes ready for the next few rounds, I think a lot of the first rounds produced good pictures when it was landscapes, water, etc. but when it got to thing that you love it made it harder to post/vote.

I would prefer themes like

Night photography (i've been waiting for this one)
action (even though I don't have anything good)
Macro
abstract (because pictures of inanimate objects at funny angles, always nice pictures)
Flowers (people have a lot of flower pics posted already, I think it would get good involvement)
