This is fun, Langdon! THANKS! I know it was extra work and I appreciate it!

I'm done. It's been a long time since I commented on every image.

The whole time I was guessing scores I was thinking people are saying, "let me check this guys profiles, how dare he guess me THAT score." LOL

I find it hard trying to guess what DPC will average. In most cases I voted significantly lower or higher than my guess of what DPC world would think.

I finally finished my comments! Glad we had that extra time! I am looking forward to seeing the results.
02/08/2015 07:01:47 PM · #104
Whew! That was interesting. Never commented on all images before. Then again, never had 38 comments during voting :-). Thanks!
02/08/2015 08:01:10 PM · #105
I went go through and commented on each and guessed. I found myself writing real critiques (and usually that means I found something to criticize or suggest to justify my guess) and if everyone did that, I think it's a real boon to the site. My only regret is I didn't enter!

Hopefully people will appreciate the more detailed feedback.

turns out I am really bad at guessing what DPC voters will score.

No more than I :) Maybe they will publish the entire list - everyone who commented 100% and their relative place on the "good guesser" scale LOL

I saw you get the score exactly right on two photos.

Thanks for your participation! I found it to be an interesting exercise.

In total there were 3,395 comments for 75 entries. Very impressive! :-) It turns out that it is the sixth most commented challenge on average!

Nicest part for me was to give and get all those comments, but getting a blue for a good guess is not too bad either.

Way to go guys! Good calls.

I wish I had had time to enter and/or comment. It looked like a lot of fun.
02/12/2015 09:13:29 AM · #115
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!
02/12/2015 09:51:29 AM · #116
Only for rewards they say 😉
02/12/2015 09:53:02 AM · #117
😉 is so much fun
02/12/2015 09:57:11 AM · #118
This was a fun challenge and almost the most comments I have ever had on an image
02/12/2015 10:37:08 AM · #119
Did I miss an announcement?

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/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. ;)

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 :-)
