Re: Competition 31

The amount of entries we have been getting in the competitions has been dropping lately same with the voting
so i was just wondering if it was worth carrying on with them are you getting board with them should i end them ?
with the amount of members on the site i would expect a lot more to enter and vote
it only takes minutes to upload and seconds to vote.

11K active users? Don't think so

How many distinct users over a week, thats a more realistic number.

Take from that all the Stanley boys and I reckon your talking more like maybe 100 users tops?

I really enjoy the photo competition and would be sad to see it go. Although I agree that it would be nice to have more entries and voters, the ones who do use it seem happy enough.

After all, not everyone is interested in photograpy.

Len I have just had a look at your 'not very good' pictures in the gallery....what are you talking about???? They look pretty damn good to me.

This is the essence i think...people feel that their photo's are not good enough, when in actual fact what we, the members, are looking at is pleasant, aesthetic pictures rather than technical excellence.

I like looking at other peoples pictures....and I also like it when other people look at mine.
