I found this incomprehensible.


Cory, refer to my earlier post in this thread.

Eta: i'm only marking comments as helpful at this stage if they get the question correct. I wrote that somewhere, I.m sure I did!


o_O

LOL! Ok, I'm still lost. Something might have gotten garbled between hemispheres. ;)

He's using the helpful checkbox to designate who gets his Q/A correct.

Huh? You self-DQ if something scores below 5? Why?

I have absolutely no clue what this challenge means, so I didn't enter. Now I'm also struggling to figure out what I should be looking at or how I should be voting. I don't know what's on challenge and what's off challenge so I'm giving this one a miss.


I'm in the same boat. No idea how to judge success. But I might go guess what the question was if I can ...

Yes it got to 5 last night but down to 4.86, now, I already sent the DQ ticket through, now just waiting on the SC to delete it.

What I've realised out of all this is that, there are not many DEEP THINKERS AROUND HERE!

But why? Does a sub-5 score bother you that much? Careful with that - I think even self-DQs count toward suspensions if too many happen in too short a time.

Jeff is correct. Another DQ in the next 25 challenges and you will incur a suspension.

The question I would ask is why are you self DQing? Is it a shot you don't like or is not up to the standards you set out for yourself? If so, I think that is a reasonable reason. If it is because of the score only, you might be missing something....

I resent that you think just because someone gave you a low score they're somehow shallow or slow. Maybe your photo just sucked. The score is an average across many voters, so assuming there were some shallow or narrow people, what about the rest of them? Surely the average you had obtained wasn't selectively chosen to only include those people.

Firstly the shot is not awesome by any means, I only entered it for the meaning, secondly I've worked to hard to get my avg vote up, I don't want it deflated with a under 5 vote, it's my decision, I know the rules, and suspension doesn't worry me, I'll be going away soon, so not a problem!

Next time can we vote on the challenge topic? :/

Really, I was looking through and there is such a diversity of shots, it just reflects the confusion brought about by the vagueness of this brief.

Oh well, it should be interesting to see how the voting ends up, what will win, what the avg. vote will be etc.

I think given the subject, everyone has tried their best and done a decent job.

All the controversy around this challenge caught my attention so I decided to comment (for what it's worth) on all shots. I tried to guess the questions but a few had me questioning my own intelligence. :)

You have rated 77 of 77 images (100%) in this challenge.

Steady rise but so far two close guesses none correct, all could have worked for the picture.

I don't think this shows confusion I think it's such a broad topic that it's subject to wide and varied interpretation. I wish more challenges presented this so that there are widely varied photos; it sure makes viewing more interesting.

But there was a whole thread about how confused we all were (are)!
