Um, what other thread? Also I suspect that you are hiding an amazing score from us. LOL (looking at the finishing scores of your 2 completed challenges vs your present avg score recieved, and the 70 more votes you have recieved to make it that much higher... so I calculate a 6.94 score for you right now at 70 votes...am I close?)

Well I was bored and curious. So I looked at your profile. Took the number of votes for each of your finished entries and multiplied by average score received on those entries. Added them up. Then took your votes received total on your profile and multiplied by your avg vote received on your profile.
Finally you subtract the total score recieved on your first two (total votes on each x avg score on each and then added together) from the present avg rec'd x votes received. This gives you the score in total on your last 70 votes. (since your votes recieved on profile was 70 more then the total of your two finished entries) Divide that score by the 70 votes and got the 6.94......

Ok, so I have way to much time on my hands....lol

Crystal ball - vs - calculator + too much time.... whatever. Pretty impressive.

Thank you. :)

Now if only more people would be impressed by my photography in the two challenges I am in presently.... :(

They both take nimble fingers and a unique way of looking at things - I am sure you will be fine. I peeked at your profile too - you have more ribbons than I! :-)

Well, I'm away on holidays at the moment, but managed to get my image edited on the laptop and entered in time. My score is not making me happy though...

I've checked a few times over the last 2 days, and it hasn't changed much. I thought the image was much better than this - I would have predicted around mid sixes. It just goes to show, you can never tell for sure what the voters will think. I'll ask for comments once the voting is over, to find out what went wrong! My laptop has been calibrated, but maybe it's just no good anyway. Well, I know it's no good, because I had many frustrations with it during editing, but I thought the result was OK in the end. Oh well. I'll certainly check it out when I get back home to my good screen, and I'll find out what it really looks like. :)

Congrats Erin, mine is still going the other way. You might be in line for one of the fancy "7 and O" symbols like mine! lol (that would be scoring a 7 or higher in a challenge and not getting a ribbon)

Ohhhh - now that wouldn't be bad. I am SURE I will not ribbon... now that I have voted on all the images. Wow!! Some great shots in there - I'd be happy with a top 50. How do you go about getting that kind of symbol?

Oh my, this score of mine is dropping so fast I cannot bear to watch!

For the symbol, after the challenge results are posted and you know you finished with a 7+ score and no ribbon, you can right click on the one in my signature and copy the url shown in the properties and insert it into your own signature or profile. :)

Good luck. I think I am going to turn my scores off for awhile cause it is getting depressing.

Yep - way down now - oh well, it was fun for 1/2 an hour :-) Not going to watch for a few days - see how that goes. Best of luck to you all.

Jeez - from a personal best to a score that may not even make my front page! What the heck is up with voters today!

I am glad I am not the only one! I am actually down a full .2 just today. It is depressing. Oh well it happens almost every challenge, hopefully it will bottom out real soon and then go up the rest of the week so that I am even higher then before. (that is my "glass half full" speaking)

I hate you. The moment mine reached 6.99 it did an about face and fell out of the 6.9s like it was scared of 7 or something.

I agree! I was actually over 7 this morning, as high as 7.05, now I am in danger of falling out of the 6.8's.

I can't believe it, I promised myself I wouldn't check my score until the end of voting, because I just new I'd be dissapointed with the votes I would receive! but I couldn't resist, and WOW I'm overcome with emotion. In fact I have a tear in my eye, this is beyond what I was hoping for...I'm speechless! Thank you.


Woohoo!!! What a score....& good luck to you. Can't wait to see which image this is ?
