Mine is bombing, big time, and I'm quite sure no one is going to tell me why. :-)

Here's my challenge - take the first 100 (yes, 100 - that's 20% of the challenge) of the thumbnails you get served up and comment on all of 'em. If at least 10 of us do this, everyone should get at least one comment if the serving is truly random. Any takers?

So far:

I'll give it a go - but I have to tell you I find it REALLY hard to comment on images that don't appeal (so I might cheat a little - SMILE!)
10/01/2007 05:13:11 AM · #3
OK I'm in, Im doing OK @ 5.5 but Id like to know why its not more.

The first 100 here I come
10/01/2007 05:24:23 AM · #4
I'm in, but it will take some time.
10/01/2007 05:27:41 AM · #5
Done 20 - thats tough - I must say I didn't cheat once and took the ones that came to me, but I do find it VERY hard to say things to images that don't thrill me.
10/01/2007 05:35:35 AM · #6
If you have thick skin, go ahead and say that the image doesn't do anything for you - be it the subject matter, composition, whatever. I think it's a fair way for people to understand the scores they are getting. Yes, there will be those who will be upset - they'll get over it and as long as you're honest, you're fine. But hopefully the majority will learn something from the adventure. My best advice is to find something positive about the picture (good light, nice comp, etc) then offer something about how you feel about the picture in general, and possibly ways to improve it or a different approach for the next time. And thanks to all those who are willing to give it a shot!

first 20% of 20% are done. I think I will slip into my paperbag now to avoid angry PMs :)
10/01/2007 07:01:43 AM · #8
It's going to take more than four of us if I want to get a comment on mine... :-)

I'm at 20% of 20% as well.

Sometimes friendships can come from comments though in my experience :)
10/01/2007 07:08:42 AM · #10
allright I'll give it a go :)

But I'm halfway voting, so I'll start where I left of.

40% and that's me for the night - will carry on over the next few days - great idea.
10/01/2007 07:31:16 AM · #12
I'm having some trouble voting. The thumbs show up but the large images show a red cross.

I'll try to continue later.
10/01/2007 07:40:11 AM · #13
I didnt see this thread until after i did my initial vote through. Havent done any commenting yet but I will see what I can do and spread the wealth through all my scores. I guess I will just do a comment for each number and keep on cycling through.
10/01/2007 07:51:36 AM · #14
This's really weird!!!!

I had just decided to, and done, this exact thing in Soft Focus.

I didn't vote all of them, but I commented on every one I voted. I did pass on voting/commenting on a couple that I couldn't find anything nice to say, but by and large, I had no problem commenting.

I'm in!

Hey ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Melethia, do you want to put our names in the top post so we can tell if we have been hit by one of us
10/01/2007 08:16:22 AM · #16
red crosses everywhere :(

can't go on voting like this.

Enough for now.

You have rated 499 of 504 images (99%) in this challenge.
You have commented on 42 images (8%) in this challenge.

Working my way through. I am trying real hard to spread them out. Maybe I just need to start throwing out some DNMC comments to bulk up my stats.
10/01/2007 08:54:22 AM · #19
You have rated 47 of 504 images (9%) in this challenge.
You have commented on 48 images (10%) in this challenge.

Almost halfway. Will try to get some more done tonight but the 'net gets VERY slow in the evenings... And Tim, make sure you comment on all your 3's - I undoubtedly have one of them and am still in the comment-free zone.
10/01/2007 09:00:02 AM · #20
I am in, mine is also doing much worse than I had thought, and I still have no comments. I will try to do as many as possible, hopefully even more than 20%. Thanks for a great challenge Melethia.
10/01/2007 09:02:33 AM · #21
I only had two 3s and I commented on both of them.

Here is where I am now -

9s - 3 comments
8s - 20 comments
7s - 1 comments
6s - 5 comments
5s - 5 comments
4s - 11 comments
3s - 2 comments
no vote - 3 comments

Missing one in there somewhere. I will keep working at it through the week.
10/01/2007 09:12:47 AM · #22
I am trying as well but I have spent all morning voting and commenting and thought I would have commented on many more than I have but when I looked I am only sitting at 10% commented on. Well back to it!
10/01/2007 09:17:33 AM · #23
I'll be voting on the whole batch and will comment on 20% or more :)

Excellent! But the thing is to try to comment on them as they come up, not just the ones you feel like commenting on. Otherwise it won't be truly random. We all know the really good ones will get lots of comments. The ones in the middle and in the lower third are the ones that usually get neglected. By taking them as they come, at least in pretty large batches, you'll hit a little of everything.
10/01/2007 09:23:13 AM · #25
I am not cherry picking in any of the vote numbers. I figure if I just start at the beginning of the vote count then I will be hitting them pretty much int he order that they came up - at least as close as I can get now. Did a whole bunch of 5s. Up to 62 now.
