Totally agree, Alan. I too wanted to see the shot that was scoring so well....

I was quite anxious to see this amazing masterpiece, only to find that it didn't exist. I've read the thread a couple times, and I'm not sure I understand what the point of the thread postings were.

Yep, pretty damn weird alright!

I have noticed people have started to do this. Crayon did it recently.

So, out of pure morbid curiosity... why would you pretend to have a high-scoring shot, and go on and on about your score for a challenge you never entered? Purely curious...

Makes me feel warm and fuzzy all over. I may have to cry a little. :)

I will say though that if you're looking to win a blue ribbon, then you should do yourself a favor and start working real hard on the next challenge. :)

Believe me - I'm THRILLED with a personal best. Just disappointed that my score dipped down below 6.0 after reaching that point.

Maybe next time.

So that makes two beers you have to buy me. FYI, Achoo and I made a bet at the start of the year as to who could reach the coveted 7.5 score. Loser buys the winner a beer. I own your butt Achoo!

:D


Didn't you say this was a last minute entry and that you didn't expect much. See, I knew you were sandbagging us!


No not a sandbagger here. I was trying to get a reaction from Achoo!


I'm pretty sure I know which one is yours, and if I'm right, it's pretty darn good. I gave it a 10 and even commented.

Hope yours will climb up a bit too, Han ;-) I was hoping for a 6.0, but I don't expect this'll happen anymore.

This is by far the most comments I have received on a shot before the rollover. I'm glad this one will be on my profile for a while.


If this is the way you come back after a break, maybe you should take breaks regularly.... :-) Nice job!

My score has gone up almost .23 since vote 170. The trolls were kind to me today with an overall fluctuation ranging within .04. This will give me my second highest challenge score to date (considering I have only been around since late February that isn't saying much I guess). Whooh hooh!!! And considering my studio consisted of a couple yards of velvet, a $9 lamp with a poster paper collar and white sheet for a diffuser and some space between my couch and our huge cat toy I really can't complain too much.

Yeah, something is going on - the Sunday trolls. I was nearly to 6.2 and now barely over 6.1. I've spoken with others who said the same thing.

BASTARDS!!!!

Excellent Bazz!!!

Nic has a 6.2+ for the 'New' challenge so that gives us 3 very healthy 6+ scores for Round 3. :)

Still need that 4th score however...I believe DustDevil and Lepidus both had scores in the 6 range too. Not sure how David and Welland are travelling.

CRUSH those damn SMITERS! Bit of wishful thinking going on here...


I'm at 5.85. Unless I get a late surge today, I won't make it back up to 6. Aaarrggghhh!
04/23/2006 12:45:35 PM · #20
My scores had gone up by as much as .16 a couple of days ago but had dropped a bit yesterday ;(

Here were my goals again:
- to score better than my last portrait entries
- to place within 20 places of kiwiness

I've met the first one. Let's see where rollover places me ;)
04/23/2006 12:40:17 PM · #21
Mine has gone up the past two days, which is nice, now I just want the voting to end so it doesn't go down again.
