Ok, I've been a member of this site for 6 years. I've never participated in any of the challenges because I have questions. My questions seem obvious, but I can't find any answers in the Challenge Discussions forum.

Two good questions. The answers are based in history. Our first CIC challenge here started in 2009. Before that, it was called something else, the name escapes me, though I do recall having challenges in 2002. Maybe simply the CTF.

We started these challenges long before DPR started their own.

Take a look at https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/2524059

DPR started new forums, and the CIC ended up here.

Why can't we just reply to the OP and post challenge images here?

Good question. At one time, we had many participants - too many for a single thread of photos and comments and conversation.

We have kept it that way, as it is also easiest for the participants to view all of the photos at once, and compare them. We can easily share full screen photos. And all photo comments can be attached to a photo, and not dispersed through a thread.

We also can set our own rules that way.

If you want to start that way, and can't figure out pbase right away, we can help. Post them here in this thread, and someone will transfer them to the right pbase gallery.

Why do we have to go to a pbase link?

That is where we maintain our galleries. pbase has been good to us.

Is there a sticky post with answers that I'm missing?

I don't think so.

Keep asking questions. Then come and join us. Our main objective is to have fun.

Jim,

Thanks for answering my questions. Hopefully, it will help some of the other members too.

One more question - what does "CIC" stand for?
