Re: Monthly Photo Challenge - Forthcoming Themes

Yep - and 'waiting for 'the Levey to run dry'. Which at this rate the Comp will too. I ask again, I would have thought running a Comp would need Admin type 'powers' ?

Why Admin powers ? Admins are not the only ones able to count "likes".

Go for it ISO. You will make Graham a happy bunny

Lightbulb Re: Monthly Photo Challenge - Forthcoming Themes

I would be most grateful for someone to take on counting "Likes" as I made a complete hash of my first attempt (with the help of my Grandson)

I would have thought an Autumnal theme would suit October, but as my main subject is People, how about "Dressed for the cold"

Re: Monthly Photo Challenge - Forthcoming Themes

I hope Zuiko has his beady eyes on this, and apologies to him in advance. But OK OK OK!
[SIZE=3]There are ofcourse some conditionsSIZE]
I un-democratically will choose the subjects (from suggestions of course [which could include mine]).
I can haveup to three ‘Likes’, should I feel there is stuff of equal merit.
The voting hasto be completed by the 6th of the month following the end of thecompetition. No point in dragging out the agony.
Hope that’s allok..
So Octoberis as Graham’s good suggestion ‘Dressedfor the Cold’.
Of coursethere has to be at least a quorum of six ‘Likes’ to approve this Post.
If approved I guess I will have to learn how to create a Thread…

Ohh dear !!

All that was suggested and indeed needed was a volunteer to do the following:

(1) Announce the monthly Theme.

(2) Count the number of valid "likes" at the end of the month.

(3) Announce the winner of the current contest and the next Theme.

I see no need for any volunteer, helping out by doing the above, to re-invent the wheel, set conditions or any other parameters before they agree to accept the task.

The Monthly Photo Challenge was set up by John ( Zuiko ) some time ago and to the best of my knowledge has worked well and been supported by the membership for several months now with little or no problems.

If it's not broken, don't try and fix it before you've even started !!

John

Re: Monthly Photo Challenge - Forthcoming Themes

Quite so. We will await a volunteer. It was only your goading John that pushed me into sending that Post

It never entered my head that you wouldn't be willing to do it without setting your own rules and parameters.

There is no reason why you can't do it if you wish. I suggest you discuss it via a PM with one of the Admins.

Regards,

John

Re: Monthly Photo Challenge - Forthcoming Themes

Graham ( Admin ) has now added his "Thanks" and "Like" to your post so it appears your suggestions and conditions have "Official Approval".

I may as well join the club and add mine too, so you now only need one more "Like" to begin running the Monthly Photo Challenge.

John

Re: Monthly Photo Challenge - Forthcoming Themes

Bit confused by your posts here John, you seemed to be encouraging ISO, then not...........

We do need to have a "judge" or "administrator" for this monthly competition, and as far as I can assess, ISO is good for that. I don't know him personally, so can only make a judgement from his postings here.

I do NOT want top rock the boat here, and do NOT want to cause any friction, you are also a valued member of the forum, and I enjoy your posts and photos..........

I would have thought admin should have the last word here.............

No worries Mark, Admin have had the last word by giving approval to his post. As stated, iso only had to follow Zuiko's example and retain the status quo but he seems unwilling to do that.

After several recent PM's to Admin, I have now decided to no longer take any active part in the forum but will still be retaining my membership.

Best regards to you Mark,

John

WTF John, something has gone wrong somewhere........

As said your contributions are valued, we need all the sensible (and otherwise) contributions that we can get here.

Just hope we can all go forward together whatever has occurred,,,,,,,,,,

Re: Monthly Photo Challenge - Forthcoming Themes

John (Zuiko) has, for very good reasons, had to step back from overseeing the challenges. I am sorry that this means there is currently nobody to direct things. I fear we have become too reliant on John!

If anybody would like to volunteer to sort things out, please contact me via PM.

Once again, I'm sorry for the discontinuity - hopefully we'll get this back up and running as soon as possible.

Ian

Re: Monthly Photo Challenge - Forthcoming Themes

Gordon Bennett, suddenly gone very quiet here..............

Not sure what qualifications the volunteer will need, I would have thought they should have been on the Oly Forum for some time, which rules me out!!

If no-one else volunteers, I am only too happy to do the biz,..

Retired, good internet, sense of humour, and/but won't be offended if Iso, or other longer serving members stand up for the job..............

Come on guys............
