Hooray! My hero! And thank you.

100% commenting coming -- from me at least. Who will join me?

You're a bit behind there, friend. People have been 100% commenting for days. :D

As at right now we had 2062 comments, up from 300 before the special announcement was posted.

Fabulous effort everyone!

Unless 100% have commented 100%, there's still time. Some of us are busier than others during the week (and that's not a criticism of anyone, just a reality).

Commenting isn't something I want to rapidfire through on a Thursday night. I have enough deadlines. So I appreciate the extension.

I understand being busy... and never suggested anyone rapidfire through anything. I'm glad you appreciate the extension as I'm sure lots of others will as well. I'm still super impressed by the increase in the number of comments, given that those people were of the understanding they needed to finish today. Well done!! :)

I protest. All this commenting has forced people to pay more attention and risen my score. Now my guess for my own photo has become less accurate.

And that's what it's all about after all. Being right. All the time.

And Niall ruined that.

I bet he's really just Neil.

Lies... all lies.....

LOL best post so far!

' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' tvsometime has given me the best comment so far, as nice as it is he's wrong :(

I'm finding the whole excercise interesting, my score is below my predicted but I knew that :)

But there's still time I guess!

Half like it, half think it's worth less.

Well, that's how you pronounce my name alright - Irish language phonetics!

My score went from being 0.04 to 0.4 away

a very interesting exercise, this challenge. I get a sense that having increased numbers of comments on the image, that the voters, because of having to consider their vote against the prediction, are more generous. Certainly my image is performing better than other similar ones I've entered. Is anybody else experiencing this?

Apart from the guesses, good and bad, I've got some really useful, insightful criticism. I wasn't sure about this challenge when I first read of it - a virtual ribbon for guessing results on a photo contest where the prizes themselves are virtual ribbons?? I take it back, well done Niall et al.

Thanks. I'm also finding it very interesting! :-)

My sore has risen since the ribbons were announced too! Though, that sometimes happens anyway.

Spooky coincidence that I voted that image 8 and commented on it more than 3 years ago. (I am far from the most active member)

This was Niall's worst idea ever. I submitted a superficially pleasant image (as usual). When voters started taking a longer, more careful look at it the score started to slide. Bring back the thoughtless speed voters!

I was dead on and had 1 comment until the ribbons were offered. Now I'm way off.

We should add 10% to everyone's guess in their title.
02/06/2015 02:10:29 PM · #91
And my score has remained remarkably steady at about .35 under my prediction - which was based more on what I thought others MIGHT think of it than on what I think of it myself.

Already voted, but happy I can use the weekend for commenting. Perhaps a few votes will raise ;)
02/06/2015 03:13:28 PM · #93
I can't say too much without definitively narrowing my image to a very small group, which would then be easy to pick out, but I was pretty confident I'd chosen a decent "dpc score" for my image. Nost commenters agree with my assessment, and generally comment the same thing for "why" that I used as my basis for my chosen score, but the votes are not analogous to what people are saying. there've been times where I see a new vote and a new comment, the comment concurs with the projected score, but the actual score (which is already significantly enough below projected) drops even more.
how can you agree with the projected, but then vote it lower by that much?

gah, as scalvert said before "a pox upon you dpc voters". ;)

"I agree with your guess that the voters overall will score this a 6, but to me it only rates a 5."

That's part of the "problem" with this challenge, that what you think the "average voter" will give a picture is not necessarily the same as how you rate the image personally.

I haven't heard people complaining about improving scores here before! :-)
02/06/2015 03:27:34 PM · #96
score is STILL exactly what I predicted, LOL!!!

I'm almost there and whenever I complain here about my score here, it drops! Btw. I just need a little bit ;)

Now I just have to figure out a way to blame you for my under-performing Opening Line shot.

Nice to have a few extra days. Gave my comments, although not (always) sure about the quality ;)
