Voters are definitely starting out pretty harsh for Stopped Motion... I was totally stoked with a shot I got yesterday, but so far it's averaging a 5.8. I'm hoping to shoot something decent for one of the exclusive open challenges tonight... Voters tend to be a bit nicer when voting on the open challenges. ;)

I'm hoping we just had a bad night. I have a score of 5.72, but had hoped (expected?) something in the low-to-mid 6's. We shall see what the day brings.

God, the voter's here sometimes piss me off. I know my entry in stopped motion isn't great but a 4.6 is just plain ridiculous. So that's not going well...

Well, I wasn't doing anything malicious. I posted in this thread where you had access...I didn't PM anybody and tell them to do this secretly. I just figured we needed someone as captain who was participating and since you had said that you couldn't (and I totally understand that other things are more important) I still don't see what the problem is. In any case, good luck with what you're doing.

Wow, didn't see that coming. I don't know what the big deal was but ok, thanks for taking the time.

Team Pinhole,
rex has formally requested that I remove his name from the WPL via PM. I regret that we have lost a good photographer but the WPL is a voluntary team league therefor I have to honor and respect his request and wishes.

If he decided to enter DPC challenges his score WILL NOT count toward team Pinhole or the WPL.

I want everyone to respect his decision and the decision of team Pinhole.

I wish rex the best and understand he wants to spend more time with his family. I wish team Pinhole's the best as they will be short one player. But lets put this behind us and everyone have mutual respect for each other.

Lets have fun,
regards,
SDW

I want to be assured by you that my score won't go toward this team.


I will honor your request. Please send me an email stating that so I will have a copy. Upon receipt of your email I will take you name off the WPL site if that is what you want.

As far as the PM we were talking about I can't give you an answer why you didn't get it. Maybe something on DPC side or my IP side. I usually keep a copy of all Pm's sent and emails sent in my outlook box but had to reinstall my computer several days ago. I think I had a thread about that, not sure. But I lost all my backed up emails.

Also just checked and you never sent me a pm for sure. Care to explain?

I can't explain why you didn't get the PM. WPL1 and WPL2 I have always PM or email participants and captains about issues like this, always! As most participants of the WPL can vouch. Sorry you didn't receive it but here is what I said (to the best of my memory).

Hi rex,
I seen you thread and have seen where you are not going to be able to participate at DPC for a while or the WPL this season. I understand family comes first. Take care and wish the best for you. If you decided to enter a challenge then your score will count toward team Pinhole.
regards,
SDW

Please understand this PM was sent before there request was sent to me.

I will be more than willing to take you off. But I don't understand how you can call it rude of them rex. You are the one that stated you were not going to participate for week four or the rest of the season. If you were the captain (of a real world team) and did not show and told them you were not going to for the rest of the season they would replace you with another captain.

However I feel it was rude announcing in the forums that you were officially retired from challenges and most forums here for now before you even considered informing your team. Before getting mad; think about it.

1. You choose to quit
2. You did so not even giving your team notice.
3. You post in your teams thread that you are not going to participate and then call them names when they replace you with another person as captain.
4. Yes you said you would try to enter this week but did not agree to any other weeks. But not the season.

Sorry you feel that way rex. Very sorry!
SDW

Take me off the team because I think that is totally uncalled for and totally rude. I don't want to be associated with that kind of behavior. And didn't I state above I was going to try and enter?

Quoting my own post from above. But that is fine if that is what yall want. Do you guys understand that family comes first?


Hi rex, I agreed to let them change captains because I PMed you and got no response plus I seen your post that you were not going to participate. I also viewed your post here which lead me to believe you were not going to participate. I totally understand your reasons and have no problem with that. But you should understand that the team wants a captain to lead team. I don't think they in anyway was trying to be mean or rude. They were going on your post. You will remain on the team in case you decide to participate in a challenge.

I hope you understand as we understand your reasons.

So you all are just booting me as captain? If so that is fine I will quit then. Let me know.

I just don't think that is very nice.


Originally posted by rex:


My answer to your pm.

1) Regarding week 4, do you have an entry in?
no
2) Regarding the season, are you planning on participating?
no

My reasons: I have a job, am spending as much time as I can with my kids for the last few days of summer.


Rex, you haven't participated in the first 4 weeks, and you said you aren't planning on participating. Are we missing something here?

I have contacted Southern Gentleman and have asked him to switch me into the captain's spot.

MrExpress emailed me today and indicated that he has been out-of-pocket, but should be able to start participating. That said, where we are is:

Nobody - actively participating
Cutlasdude70 - actively participating
DAWAR - actively participating
Cresus - actively participating
MRXpress - noshow to date, but promising to start
Rex - inactive (but hopefully that will change?)
GreenGiant - not participating, has not responded to PMs.

That means we have 4 definite participants, one promising to start, and 2 inactives.

The bottom line is that we need 100% participation each week, because we really can't count on somebody having our backs. I would ask that everyone try to get in at least one entry each week - any score is better than the zero we get when only 3 enter. Frankly, a boring but in-focus, properly balanced shot will usually score around 5, you should be able to get something in with just an hours' effort.

If you don't mind, I would also appreciate it if you could PM me with your email addresses so I can send distributions to the team. The DPC PM system works, but I have to send to each of you individually.

Who has entries in this week (week 4)? I only have one, which is at a 5.25 right now. Not great, but I had been out of the country until Sunday, and it's certainly better than a zero.

I agree...there's no reason to not enter. I'm nominating Nobody to take over as captain since rex isn't able to participate anymore. Even though I'm really busy for the next week I'm going to enter something even if I don't like it much simply so we have enough entries. I'm going to really try and take some cool shots though.


I second that nomination! :D
