I agree. We should have called this one at about four votes. ;)

I tend to do this, take the shot hastily and the later notice all the things i could have refined on the idea and the execution. Any other retaking shots on challenges already in voting?

I always think of how I could have made it better, but I don't usually go back and do it. I just try to remember for next time. :)

IMAG5414_1_1

I'm really glad I didn't enter this in adult toys. But whacky enough to want to play.
Basically a self portrait though....my statement of not entering lately as I'm always scraping bottom. Lololol

I don't even know how to copy a link to a pic from my cellie. Obviously don't belong here.

Ummm ... probably just as well because you're not supposed to post "outtakes" while a challenge is currently in the voting stage.

Is it still an outtake if it wasn't entered?

If there's no entry isn't it just a random image?

It's still considered an outtake. Best to wait until the challenge ends and post it then. :)

I'd kind of like a ruling on that......seems kind of strange if there's no entry, what difference does it make? It's not like it could possibly affect anyone else's entry.

But you could. Imagine if gyaban said "oops. Missed the extended free study, here's what I would have entered". All of the sudden, maybe the entries don't look as good as they would have otherwise.

I never thought it really would make a difference, but I remember it happening once, where the outtake posted during voting was so much better than the entries, that it really showed them up. :)

Yes, I remember several discussions about this and agree that it's just not good form to post something challenge-related or possibly challenge related during submission or voting periods. I thought we had a DPC Etiquette post somewhere that touched on this.

Meanwhile, back at the dump...

I think it's an official thing... not only an etiquette thing.

I once had a post/image removed from a thread by SC during voting even though I'd not entered the challenge.

Seems fair to me.

Do not influence voting in any manner.

08/31/2017 11:14:26 PM · #20
OFFICIAL RULING: As far as DPC is concerned, you don't have to have entered the challenge to have "outtakes". If you think about it, that's logical. "I missed the deadline to submit, but here's what I would have put in!": how's that NOT an outtake? Posting any image challenge-topic-related-and-tagged is a breach of etiquette while voting is going on. We don't consider it a deadly sin, so to speak, but we WILL hide the errant image until voting is over.

You could post it in a thread at a second before rollover and I think it would be legal, right SC?

But not the second after.

"Legal" is a touchy word. It wouldn't be right, though. We generally extend the id3ea of "outtakes" to include NOT posting options for the challenge about to roll in, before it does. It's best if everyone just plays it cool and doesn't talk about possible approaches to fulfilling challenges etc while the challenge is on the boards. It rubs a LOT of people the wrong way, and I don't blame them.
