To me, there was one entry that just totally stood out as being incredibly awesome. I can't wait for the challenge to finish to see whose it is. For whatever reason, I found myself voting higher than usual in this challenge. I liked the thought, cohesiveness, and craftsmanship that so many put into their images. Also, I think it was a nice change to not have just one shot to focus on, but more of a thought to consider.

Now that it's over, which one did you pick?

My guess is this one --> ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/1000-1999/1110/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_828820.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/1000-1999/1110/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_828820.jpg', '/') + 1) . '


I'll second that guess..... but then I went and read the comments so I'd say it's a pretty safe second.....

I sure hope the two "X"s are the same in your equation. Otherwise you are lying and that kind of thing is frowned on!!!!


nope, not lying and they are not the same.

Wow, that is really well done! I'm trying to figure out how you did it, but I keep on missing a variable. I think I am being stupid here, but it's buggin me now. Care to share how you did it?


You solve the problem using two variables.

The first variable is the X you listed 6.X333. You multiple the number of votes by the score. For the score, you have digits from 1 to 9 to substitute in for X. When you solve the equation, throw out any scores that don't end in essentially a whole number. For example, 6.6333 x 255 = 1691.49 while 6.7333x255 = 1716.99 = 1717. It should be noted that 6.9333 x 255 also achieves a whole number....but that is where psychology comes in...and that is the second variable.


Hahaha! That's exactly what I did, but when I got more than one possible answer I was stumped. Psychology, now who would've thought of that?? :)

How can one see this? I only see the average.

I dropped from 6.23 to 6.15 last couple of days.


HA! Got you beat. I've dropped from 6.23, to 6.07! (still about 1.08 higher than I expected)

Edit - currently at 6.076. In Triptych II my final score was 6.087. It'll be interesting to see how close they finish to one another.

If you are addicted to this place and the update button (available to members) you can 'calculate' what the votes are. The update button does not actually SHOW the votes, just the score change - you have to do the math yourself....

' denbote - It is YOUR opinion on the entries and what are the appropriate scores. GREAT!!! Score it that way. But everyone has a different opinion, and you cannot force your opinion on anyone else, let alone everyone else.

Got a question for you as it relates to this: Which teachers did you learn most from? Those that score fair but hard or those that score easy? Personally, those that are hard to please but are fair about it make me work harder to improve.

We all get a vote for a reason and there is a distribution of votes for a reason....

And it is YOU who decides what is fair?

Just this week. Next week it can be your turn to decide. :-)

It is a good point, though. The lot probably isn't deserving of the average I gave either - mine is too high. So it all balances out in the end.
