Well, Im sure I'll beat you in the Free Study. 2 4rs in a row. I think I lost my touch.

So few appreciate that "the race to the bottom" is a legitimate sport.

You guys are such champs.

I'm lost in Meh-land

I'm definitely racing to the bottom in the free study. My excuse is nearly-terminal hypoxia, and I'm sticking with it :-)

Sorry it took me so long to join in... I was off googling "Hypoxia".

My best is 120/125 and 113/118.

But, I'm not giving up yet!

ETA: One of my contenders...

At least I was honest with myself. Ha!

Well it was not who I thought... I'm stumped (or at least to lazy to do the required research, LOL).

I'm interested. What is the motivation for wanting to come in last?

Secret prizes, including cash, cars, exotic vacations, farm animals. You've clearly been a fool for shooting for the top all the time. Throttle it down and enjoy the spoils waiting at the bottom.

Oh no. All my life I have strived to be number one. How misdirected I was. I will never be the same.

ETA: Yup, Whiterook has (I think) 126...

I'm working on it ... I have 108, including one which was (erroneously IMO) DQd ...

However my last entry must have done pretty good because my overall average just went up by 0.0001 !

I have received a good share of Browns, 38 I think. I have never consciously, when having to decide between image A or B, submitted B because I thought it had a better chance of securing the Brown.

I do imagine it is the same for most of the regular bottom-dwellers.
Our images land there as a result of the mean [average, pun intended] voting preference.
Our taste in good images to submit is just on the opposite scale of the average member's.
Irregular visitors may have planned the happening, perhaps to complete their set, or [hopefully] when dabbling in a genre they normally never visit, or by pressing the wrong button when submitting. It's a fluke, never to be repeated.

The benefits are:
- A much higher after-visit number than most images in the lower half of the challenge.
- Claim on the Brown, a non-existing ribbon
- Ummm....
- Nothing else.

It will not be that the image has the most "meh" value, because those land up in the middle somewhere. The images here got a positive response [although it was to mark it negatively] out of the viewer. So viewer engagement was better than average. That's my dissertation.

Or shall I say hope.
Or really my scream to be noticed.

Well said. How can I join in if I don't catch up with all of you? See you at the bottom

FWIW, I noticed and generally concur with your excellent analysis.
