That would be me. I make sure every discussion has an onus so the quality can pour out of it.

Perhaps I am the only one that thinks the gradual decline in participation is attributable to the fact that we all have rather hectic lives and that there are more and more interesting things vying for our attention.

I get up at 0400hrs every day of the week, chat to my friends in Australia for a bit, get ready for work and toil away for 10 to 12 hours a day. I occasionally bring work home and do try to engage in social activities as best I can. I take a month off (w/o pay) every year and travel to Europe, Australia, the USA and any other location that I might have an interest in (except Communist countries)

This, coupled with the fact that I do have a family life, is such that my participation in this venue has declined significantly in relation to when I first joined.

Is it due to some yet unnamed deficiency that prevails in DPC.... not likely... more in line with the fact that I have other interests to tend to.

Just another man's view.

Don't have anything new to add to the thread, but if DPC does go belly-up....well, I hope we get enough warning so I've got time to download my challenge entries and raid as many threads as possible for information and advice on all things photography. This place is home to so much talent it would be a shame to not at least see it archived.

She wanted to celebrate the century mark with a particularly negative/dismissive missive? And she's making sure we "get" it?

According to a search of the Internet Archive Wayback Machine "//www.dpchallenge.com has been crawled 1,259 times going all the way back to March 27, 2002.

A crawl can be a duplicate of the last one. It happens about 25% of the time across 420,000,000 websites."

I'm sure many links to sites and photos will be broken, but I'd think most of the threads (mostly text) should be there somewhere.

And you have created 100 of these discussions...pity you say?

Brennan got it right.

If we truly understood Nascentes morimur, everything would shine, even expert editing :)

I've been to Miramar but have no idea where the other place is. Oh, and I do know what Miramar means, so there, :O)
