Thanks for creating a fun and unique challenge. Now let's keep making quality comments in future challenges!

+1 on all counts :-). Thanks everyone and let's keep up the commenting.

Nice to see the results (and my 1st and 14th place) and I like the ribbons. Thanks again, looks like it have been a lot of work.

That was loads of fun, but I think the best thing was that it made me slow down and spend more time contemplating the image in front of me, which in turn made me appreciate images I wouldn't normally.

And just a question, but might there be some bling in the offing for the 100% 'ers?

I can knock it out of the park guessing what DPC likes yet I can't consistently compose an image that can win and was .5+ off on my own image. ' . substr('//img.photobucket.com/albums/v153/91mini/smileys/nono2.gif', strrpos('//img.photobucket.com/albums/v153/91mini/smileys/nono2.gif', '/') + 1) . '

It was fun. AS I looked through my guesses I knew I was pretty darn close on most but never thought I'd grab the top spot.

The first is how close she came in guessing what score her own image would get. The second is the cumulative total in how far off she was guessing what the OTHER 74 images would get :-) [/quote]

Thanks.

If anyone is curious, here is the table of guesses and corrections (~360 needed attention). Here is a JSON dump if anyone is inclined to do anything else with it (like determine if the 34 commenters above are optimistic/pessimistic and to what degree).

And without further ado, the lovely awards for profile pages:

' ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/guess2.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/guess2.gif', '/') + 1) . ' ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/guess3.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/guess3.gif', '/') + 1) . '

Hopefully it's clear what they are. If anyone with some actual design skills would like to polish them up, I think there are at least 7 people that would appreciate it. ;)

This was a fun challenge and almost the most comments I have ever had on an image
02/12/2015 09:53:02 AM · #20
😉 is so much fun
02/12/2015 09:51:29 AM · #21
Only for rewards they say 😉
02/12/2015 09:13:29 AM · #22
Congrats to those who guessed correctly! And 'twas great fun making guesses myself... I'm still checking some to see how close I was:)

Please remember this challenge and what fun it was to make and receive so many comments!

What if.... just think... what if everyone left a few for every challenge, well...ok... don't think about it... do it!

Way to go guys! Good calls.

I wish I had had time to enter and/or comment. It looked like a lot of fun.
