Re: March Monthly Challenge: Bridges (time restricted)

I'll be out later knocking on doors asking for your vote. Baby kissing will be on the menu, along with cheesy smiles and undeliverable promises.

Vote pdk42 - no bridge too wide to cross! You know it makes sense.

I can't let the honourable gentleman's statement rest. Walti is clearly peddling disinformation here. In fact, I have it on good authority that he's been paying Cambridge Analytica for dubious use of forum data, and possibly for inserting subliminal messages into the Buy & Sell section.

Is it co-incidence that both he and DrMarkF (aka Mark Facebook) both live in Cambridge? The recent forum outages are really just a smokescreen for data mining by the forum's Cambridge militia! Questions need to be asked!

The members need to vote for a candidate they can trust.

Re: March Monthly Challenge: Bridges (time restricted)

Gordon Bennett, a good vote count so far, and I think 3 equal winners at the mo.

Only need a couple of more votes to secure a clear winner, difficult choice I know, but you don't need to have to have entered to vote.

Might ask for peoples reasons or thinking about their votes....................

One more day to do the bizzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Re: March Monthly Challenge: Bridges (time restricted)

Last few hours to vote...........

Would like to add a final section to the thread, Why Did You Vote for What You Did.............

Not a thorough investigation, personally I am not qualified, but am able to give reasons why I voted the way I did, and tell of near missus (close runners)

I hope it will give credit to the photos that did not win if that's the right word. May help to give us all a better understanding of the pro's and con's of photos submitted.

Zuiko did this in his original competition, but would like to widen the discussion. No obligation, but ..................................
