I'll join you. First score a 3, second a 5, for an awesome average of 4. Better figure something out for Sports or I may have a disappointing week!

I did a snapshot, so I expected the low scores I've received. But, the shot was fun, for me.

After looking at all of the submissions, I am not surprised. This doesn't seem to be DPC quality. More of a snapshot competition. I went out on a limb with mine, and so far it is not being received all that well. Oh well. :(

Up to 5.0000 after 4 votes - its an improvement... lol *passes out the cold brewskies and ice packs for the update finger*

Oh yeah... these votes are gonna be ugly... Probably 90% or more are going to contain someone's family member(s)... including my own submission...not a big shock, considering the title ;-)

Finicky voters will therefore get pissy and vote down for everything they see that's not "out of the box" enough for them.

Mine's out of the box and I've never got scores as bad as this - I may pull it.

....and no remarks about how a 4.8 isn't that bad - it's not very good either. Plus - it has already dropped from 5.222 to this and there are several days of this torture to go. Guess I should have shot a family instead of going out of the box.

07/11/2005 01:08:29 AM · #14
ah, I forgot to put my family pic in.... maybe just as well.

I just finished voting and I think part of the problem is too many people thought outside the box in the same manner (shoes, ducks, graveyards, etc.) While some were better than others, there seemed to be a lot of similar submissions in this challenge and not the variety of past challenges.

4.9333 with 15 votes in.

And I could have sworn I requested a 9.0, email must have got lost somewhere along the way.

There's some nice stuff in this challenge, hanving only looked at the thumbnails and voted on a couple.
07/11/2005 01:15:44 AM · #18
I am voting now, and I actually like the out of the box entries so far.
07/11/2005 01:28:55 AM · #19
Well...I broke 6 for a little While! Back to work! (yeah we'll see how long I last before I hit update again......)
07/11/2005 01:33:08 AM · #20
I tried to change my entry about 30 seconds too late! Wish I had...looks like another L O N G week for me. :(

Can't find it in the search engine - can someone tell me how I can DQ my own image?

Can't be done, unless you have broken the editing rules and someone calls you on it. Other than that you are stuck with the photo and the score, I know that didn't help but that's all I can offer.

Good Luck

I just knew I'd have all 9's and I was so original.

Well, I'll go skulking off to bed with my 4.6 scores. UGH

One of these day's I'll get it right.

Amber. Contact a sc member and let them know you are requesting to withdraw your picture. Or check the "validate" button on your entry. I don't know if that will work, but you can always try it and see what happens. You know it will still be on the viewing pages after the challenge? Might as well tough it out with the voters. The first night is always hard to watch. Maybe sleep on it before you request withdrawing it.
