monthly competition
#1
Does anyone know why the monthly contests have stopped. I thought these were a good idea, as it gave you a theme to work on if you were going through a mental block. Please can we have them back Barbara.

Presumably due to lack of entries. How often did you enter? I have posted little since the Admins messed up the web site, reportedly for the benefit of those using phones. Previous to their meddling, images would display properly, with scroll bars if they were too big to fit the web page; also when clicked on, they would open in a new window to fill the screen.

Hello,

Yes, they are temporarily on hold due to lack of participation. 

Would others like to see them again? Please comment and let us know!

Thanks  Shy

Lack of participation is a valid argument. Also the site appears to have lost many contributors who would have been looked on as 'regulars' in the forums. Since the site now seems to be Mobile/Smartphone orientated would it increase participation if there were a Mobile forum. I know some would object but all said and done the site is for ' digital photography enthusiasts '.
As for the monthly comps, bring them back. Any prospect of an increase in monthly income is most welcome.
Good to hear from you Barbara,
Regards to all,
Mike.

I am sure the changes have had some impact on things here. Also, with warmer months more people may also be enjoying the great outdoors.

At least it is a thought anyway Cool I help with several other forums and this time of year things do seem to slow down some.

Thanks for letting me know Jane, Mike, Philip, and Ed. Big Grin

It's always been that way in my experience, summertime slows down online activity, even though people may be out shooting more. In times past these forums didn't suffer the summer slowdown, as around half the users were Australia or Hong Kong Based, so the seasons were flipped for them.

Thank you - I have sent a message to the admin about starting the monthly competitions again at the beginning of July. As soon as I get a go ahead - we will give it a go.

Thanks for your patience! Smile

I too miss the competition.  Maybe this will give more of us an incentive to participate more often.

I would like to see the monthly competition back but maybe without the set subject as it makes it harder to enter
