Never got it and we all know how the pm system works here.

Take me off the team because I think that is totally uncalled for and totally rude. They can **** ** ***.

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!

just take me off and edit your post above for me so my original quote is gone. That was rude of me.

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

Well dpc goes through a gmail account and all e-mails are saved there and in my Outlook. I also checked my spam folder and it is not there. Just understand I think this is uncalled for as I have stated I will get something in for this week. And I plan to enter something. But if I am not removed from the team I won't enter. 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.

pm sent and reply received. I assume the website won't update until midnight.

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,

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

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.

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...

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.

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. ;)
