This is my 5th challenge since I have joined, and I was showing improvement... ::sigh::

I guess one persons :-( 5.6 is another persons :-) 5.6. And I am definitely happy with mine (although it has dropped from a positively giddy 5.88. Wish I had a few comments (good or bad though)

This is my second challenge and a distinct improvement from the first score I got. Having looked at some of the other submissions all I can say is that there are a lot of very talented people out there. Still in the Corinthian English spirit I am more than happy just to be taking part

I still think scores will come up. In low key I calculated three consecutive votes of 1, 1, 2. At the end they weren't there, so either were changed later or voters didn't reach 20%. I suspect they were changed; perhaps some people get a thrill out of being labeled a troll and getting people upset over their scores. If this is the case, they are indeed trolling.

Really? I delight in giving great scores if deserved. I don't enjoy giving lower scores, but I call 'em as I see em.

I have many more to view, but so far, still unimpressed (except for one) LOL

It's just a suspicion, and I also like giving great scores. I suspect most people here do. But those scores I received disappeared somehow...

Still hanging around 5.76 here.

i'm going right now to make comments and spend some time on these. . .hopefully good karma will follow me.

:o)

i wish better luck for you guys than i'm getting myself.

My biggest gripe, is that I am sitting low, and NO ONE gives me a comment as to why it's been voted low. For me, this is one of my proudest shots.

I guess I need to start entering shots that I don't care for or that I hate... cuz when I do that... I do well!
03/07/2007 10:58:27 AM · #35
I am the same as nsoroma79 I am tanking, worst rated shot ever, and no comments. I would say this is better than my current worst. for sure!

There's been lots of discussion about not commenting on lower score shots. I personally don't do it much cause it might be "I see nothing about this I like, it looks like a snapshot, blah blah blah." Unless I can see a way to improve it as it is (not "start over and do something completely different" LOL) I don't say anything. PLUS when there are a zillion entries, such as this challenge, you almost are tired by the time you finish voting, so commmenting isn't going to be as prevalent as it might be in one with less than 200. I guess it's the law of averages. ha

You have rated 144 of 435 images (33%) in this challenge.
You have commented on 39 of 435 images (9%) in this challenge.

Made the first third of voting, quite disappointed with the entries so far, as with my score - a rollercoaster ride between 5.6 and 6.4

Not at all happy with 5.444--I thought this time I could finally break a 6. But 2 favorites? I'll take it. Heck, I'll take ANY positive reinfocement at this point. I seldom enter challenges because I seldom have a shot that I see as scoring above low 5's (or worse). But this one I took with the challenge in mind, so maybe my score will keep going up. I was at 4.9 first thing this morning, so maybe my post-troll scores will bring me up a bit. Now back to the update button... :o)
03/07/2007 11:12:03 AM · #39
I'm at 3.84.
I'm not surprised.
I have a comment - a good one actually, to the point. Excellent!

Well you won't be "tanking" alone. I'm right down there with you. 4.7

Looks like just about everyone's score is in the red, and mine is no exception. :-/

Well I'm just above a 6 and slowly sinking . . . 44 votes zero comments.

And while we all love our photos and want them to do well, I tend to agree with Jutilda that there doesn't seem to be much WOW factor in this challenge (and I certainly include my own shot in that comment).

But hey - you have to mark what's out there and I shall soon set off to mark a pile of them. Maybe I'll change my mind.

Let's dig out those winners :- )
03/07/2007 04:29:04 PM · #48
I'll never understand the voters. Never.

As of 50 votes my average was 6.1xxx with 3 comments. At 58 votes it's now 5.6xxx, meaning the last 8 votes were a combination of 2s and 3s (or existing voters went back and lowered their original score)! WTF?!
03/07/2007 05:11:13 PM · #49
I didn't enter this challenge but I can't help but wonder why so many people did not enter a photo of something red. I see lots of pinks and oranges and browns.
03/07/2007 05:14:56 PM · #50
16 votes later and I am into the 6.xxx range!
