Here's an update (12-24-07) on the Bottom 10 “ribbon earners” for the 2007 season. This may or may not be an accurate record, since it was all done by ferrets working in the darkness of the dpc cellar.

Tallied below are number of "ribbons" in each of three categories: Brown (last), Sepia (2nd to last) and Turd (3rd to last). Points are awarded 5 for “Brown”, 4 for “Sepia”, 3 for Turd (3rd to last).

Great. Another list I'm not on. I need to start an 11th-20th place chase. :P

LOL @ turd. I never knew that was one of the positions.

truly awesome. I'm glad somebody is keeping track of those down in the basement.

was this something to sign up for? because I'm pretty sure I could make that list.
12/17/2007 12:52:29 PM · #6

It may be because it is only browns, sepias, and turds during 2007 - not all time.
12/21/2007 05:57:18 PM · #11
So who's gonna do the tallying for the boringly mediocre?
12/24/2007 06:06:35 PM · #12
I just got another sepia... that's 13 points. so close...
12/25/2007 05:11:20 AM · #13
Whiterook does it again, for the 21st time this year! Scores another "brown" ribbon in the "Ebay" challenge. Congrats Stephen!

Take it easy - you and posthumous (at least) are honorary lifetime (/deathtime) denizens of the dpc dungeon...

I will admit that the honor of tying for tenth for this category was not among my intentional photographic priorities and objectives, but recognition within this company of photo workers is not bad at all.

My browns for 2007:

I missed this thread earlier. Thanks for the stats. Although "turd" colored just seems wrong to me, and sounds worse than brown as far as nomenclature goes. I prefer the subtlety of brown - sepia - _____ (taupe?).

02/15/2008 05:22:29 PM · #18
Hey I've finished dead last, ie Sky - And not a single brown ribbon in sight!

In order: Lines II, Sky, Dichotomy. Surely that counts for something.
