  • Let me take this opportunity to clarify my original comment. What I meant to say: “If a voter had a submission in a challenge, and voted a low range (such as .5 to 3), even though they had no intention
  • If a voter had a submission in the challenge, a voting range from .5 to 3 is sandbagging. You can't say their overall low voting affected all the entries equally because they didn't/couldn't vote ...
  • I have (and had) a number of cats that do that. As far as my cats are concerned, I wouldn't say they are showing their superiority. I'd say it's more likely an indication that they feel loved and ...
  • I care nothing about you and don’t wish to. What I do care about is the integrity of the challenges for which I occasionally participate. As a hobbyist, I find it very enjoyable to be able to ...

    Placed 39th in the challenge. Stone Mountain Park, GA
  • Sounds like a lot of BS.  You got caught cheating - just admit it.
  • I don't know WTF you're talking about.  I'm done with this thread.  Bye.
  • If people didn’t participate because of the things they don’t like, there would be far less entries until DPReview fixes the voting structure, removes cheating from the voting process and hosts ...
  • Maybe I should have replied to the original post.  In any case, my point is that possibly some watermarks are small or translucent because they don't want it to distract from their photograph.  In ...
  • My guess is that some challenge participants (including myself) believe that a watermark only detracts from a photograph, They therefore add a watermark that's non-intrusive to their work. While a ...
  • I don't see how you can say the voters vindicated you.  Only three of the 22 voters voted a 0.5.  I don't see that as the voters overwhelmingly stating the photo did not meet the challenge.  ...
  • This challenge is a major failure.

  • Commented on photo VSCO CAM X2 in the VSCO CAM challenge

    What a stupid challenge. What does the app do? Turns a picture into trash?

  • If the 0.5’s were given for not meeting the challenge, I’m not sure they were warranted. First off the host said to “Shoot from as low as possible.” That by itself does not indicate the camera ...
  • Although I don't participate in many challenges, I've been following the challenges for a good number of years.  I'd say without hesitation that these VSCO challenges are the worst challenges that ...
  • Replied in DQ Vote?
    For the half point (0.5) to work, the host would have to inspect the photos receiving 0.5's and remove those entries that don't meet the challenge.  They should be doing that now.  Of course I ...
  • I recall that each time you voted, it would advance you to the next picture.  It hasn't worked for me in a good while.  Given the interest DPReview has in running these challenges, don't expect it ...
  • Submitted a challenge entry Swans
    Swan Lake, Sumter, SC
    Placed 59th in the challenge. Swan Lake, Sumter, SC
  • I've asked myself that same question. You answered it quite clearly and made it easily understandable. Good Job! Larry G.

    Placed 12th in the challenge.
