I'm not a designer.

What I'm putting forth is someone to help me design something for "I Entered the 2008 October Free Study, and All I Got Was this Whacked out Comment from K10DGuy."

It can be a banner, a button, a t-shirt gif/jpg/png whatever, or maybe a beer mug or something (since I'm generally drinking Guinness when I do these.)

Don't know if ya'll are up for something like that, but like I said, I'm having a tonne of fun, and while I'm not getting a LOT of feedback, that's probably because the challenge is on and people don't want to give away their shots, which is entirely understandable.

If these can be made, then let me know, AFTER the challenge is over, and they'll be free for you on your profile page or wherever you want to put them.

When you mentioned that you may be running out of ideas I was going to suggest a drink or eight - but then I didn't want to offend :-) Glad to see you are having fun!! I'll take a button/banner - whatever :-)

My last two entries have started out really strong, then dropped exceptionally (whole values... IE 6.7 to 5.7) and then slowly rebounded over the rest of the challenge. Very roller-coaster.

I think it's impossible for me to break 6. My last entry scored in at 5.9947, and now I'm hovering around the 6.0 mark again :(. That being said, I've only got 4 entries, so maybe I should be more optimistic about things.

The silliness and experimental commenting continues. I'm enjoying myself very much, even if my shot is tanking pretty badly (well, not that badly, it's staying at a mid 5.4). I'm hoping to at least get to 200 comments. That should be good no?


Are the comments a progressive linking story - or just a bunch of short stories?


Neither. Every photo I look at gives me some kind of thought or emotional reaction, and I turn that into one of:

A) A story
B) A joke of some sort relating to the photo
C) Some silly anecdote, relating to the photo

Each and every one is completely separate and dependant on the shot as it comes up to vote, and I vote using my usual scale, which is completely independent of the comment I give it.

Unfortunately, some shots simply don't give me any kind of real thought or reaction at the time, so I skip them, but my hope is that I can get to as many as I can before Tuesday, without getting too dry :)


THe one you left me was actually rather amusing.

Okay, I was hoping for a higher score ... Everyone (all 131 of you) go back and bump the score you gave me up by 1. Just 1. Is it so much to ask?!?

10/05/2008 06:27:28 PM · #432
am suprised scores are still swinging so much Mark. I'm currently 0.2 below the high point but happier as its climbed back to my #10 shot.

I really hope my prayer to the vote scrubber gods will be heard, cause I am not getting any positive traction.

You hold him still while I steal his score, if he doesn't want it! ;P

I'm still sitting uncomfortably at 4.74.

I thought your comment was funny. Glad it provoked that kind of reaction :)

I expected as much, so not really complaining, my shot is kinda boring. It's also my first ever free study entry so I'm still learning what pops :)
