I seriously doubt this has been proven. Just because one might not agree with the scores doled out by some individuals, that it itself does not mean that those people are trolls.

This most certainly would streamline the process for people like me who place individual photos in sub categories and then re-visit these images to see if determine if the scores might be adjusted.

Considering I know nothing about PS, I can' say that I agree with this as it truly would be something that could discourage newbies.

I liiiike the black background idea. It gives photos so much more of a classy, striking look.

The choice of Grey, White or Black background on our uploaded images.

Probably not a quickie to implement but would be good.

I'm a member of a Norwegian photo site (www.foto.no) where this is an option on upload. In many cases the photographer prefer a certain background but maybe not at the cost of making it smaller size to fit a border. It is also known that some voters may vote down somewhat when a border is used.

What a GREAT idea!

A friend of mine told me "if you want to get better, compete with these guys." So, I must want to get better. Either that or wear out my shutter and waste ridiculous amounts of time.

1. Checkbox to indicate photographer solicits comments from voters.
2. Two rule sets only, "everything goes" and "straight from the camera" that only allows typical in-camera adjustments.
3. If DPL is ever resumed, it needs its own separate challenges.
4. No gimicky challenge topics. Topic title should make the topic obvious since many people never read the descriptions.

This was a user suggestion made 12/1/09 ...

an entry which gets a score of 6.5

More attention to the Challenge Suggestions thread. There are a lot of great suggestions there at all times but yet we see for instance "Puzzle Macro III" before picking something from the suggestions box that hasn't been used before. I have never understood why.

I do like the puzzle challenge though. It was just an example.

Otherwise I think this is a great site and I like pretty much all the features and all the things ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/1.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/1.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Langdon has done to it.

Well, I do understand that. But you gain nothing from doing nothing, and maybe you gain something from doing something.

I have already had a couple of ideas from this thread that we as members could implement, just got to work out the finer details!

But it would be nice if all the people that are going on and asking for changes, put it in one thread, so it can be looked at critically.
12/20/2009 04:37:40 PM · #15
Maybe because no official response from Langdon over the `future` thread - maybe they feel this will fall on deaf ears as well. :(
12/20/2009 04:34:15 PM · #16
Hmm, I am surprised that there weren't more people commenting on this thread.
12/19/2009 11:57:57 PM · #17
a "no pet" rule unless the challenge specifically asks for it. i'm sick of seeing the same shots of everyone's dogs and cats. Seriously, I am an animal lover but to be honest no one thinks your cat is cute but you.

Zip the photos into a zip file and upload the zip file.

Now if they could only extract the exif from those same files and fill in the data entries. Instead of having to do them painstakingly one at a time.

- challenge descriptions should be addressed to the voters instead of the photographers.
- the only rule for photographers should be no plagiarism.
- a sense of history. nothing frees your mind from prejudices better than knowing where they came from.
- users should be given a green shirt if their IP addresses originate from another planet.

You neglected to include Ooppsey Theory or the very complex Dayzee Hypothesis, and the endeavour to merge the two in the quest for the Grand Unification Ooppsey Dayzee Theory.

And yet you dare consider yourself a scientist.....


Be serious.

DPL... it was so much fun :) however, separate leagues or something to make it more fair, like <2 ribbons and >2 ribbons leagues. just an idea.

the watermark thing fixed so I can zoom images with firefox.

website integrated chat room.

I'll leave all the creative changes to you guys, I kinda just like the site. The new improvements lately have been Great! I just have two things I personally would like to see. #1. Have the ability to upload more then one image at a time to a portfolio. #2. It would be nice to not only have your all time average on your profile page but your average year by year, some of us nuts are starting to be here for a while :)
