Yuuuck...sorry about that. It's not easy for people who are not here as often, to get everything right. That's why I hesitate to try to be part of certain things and I don't want to muddle things up. I do want to thank you for keeping the forum organized. I know it's a big job @Pixey. We must truly have far more appreciation for what @Ego Eram Reputo , @BoltBait (a founder?) & has been doing around here for a long time.... @toe_head2001, too. Running this forum properly is a big job and it's likely a thankless job for you Admin. I'm sure people don't realize just how much dedication, time and effort goes into this, nor the "why" of it, which is a bigger picture. It's a huge important job! So, thank you, again, Pixey, and the rest of you who do this. @lynxster4 you're here, a lot, too, helping out and contributing. I'm not sure if you're an admin but you do a lot of good here, too and help others a lot, too. So, thank you, also.

Gotcha. I thought you had written previously to leave it and just add the newer ones. My bad. I'm really putting you to extra work. I'll give you extra likes for being so helpful.

 

No, My Bad .......... I should have been more specific.  I should have said, don't delete them until you are ready to replace them in the same post.  Anyway, it's no trouble at all :D

Apologies to @Pixey as the host taking the time and @mjw as the theme chooser but time ran away with me and I was unable to support this one.

 

Top notch entries from everyone and ginger is one of my favourite spices so i'd eat them all 🤗

Nice to hear from you, welshblue. I certainly know the feeling of having time run away with me. Two weeks for an entry always sounds like a long time, until I suddenly realize there are only two days left, and I have other things I need to do.

I've decided to give the OOTF a week's hiatus as (thank you @MJW for pointing this out) it has become in sync with the SOTW.  So the next OOTF#34 will commence next Saturday19th January 2019.  I hope everyone enjoys their sabbatical :lol:

Shame.

 

The competitions are the only muse I'm having lately ... that said, totally understandable why you're doing it

Maybe instead of getting OOTF and SOTW back out of sync all at once, we can do it in a few stages. We could just delay the beginning of OOTF a few days, or extend the entry or voting periods by a few days (or a combination of the above). After a few periods, they'll be completely out of sync. Keeping them out of sync is somewhat tricky, since it depends on how long it takes the winners to pick new themes. However, if we keep in mind the goal of not having the voting periods coincide, it should be possible.

 

I suggest we perhaps start the next OOTF a couple of days after the beginning of the next SOTW, and have a 15 or 16 day entry period. I could, I suppose, pick a really difficult theme, so everyone will be begging for the extra entry time!

... and there was me thinking you were joking 😋

 

Interesting and head scratching theme this time around

If after a few days the general consensus is the the theme is too difficult, I'll be happy to propose something else. I have some rather vague ideas on how to render a fish. I'll see how they work out.

I think it's a good test/ challenge ... and for me something outside my comfort zone - texture wise - which is always a good thing.

Don't forget everyone, Saturday is the last day for your entries to the Aquarium Fish OotF.

 

I will be asking @lynxster4 - if the need arises - to do the Poll on Saturday, as I have to have more surgery tomorrow. Hopefully I'll be up to it though :lol:

Ha - ha :)  I just realized I am an object of discussion 🤣

 

Thank you so much @Ego Eram Reputo @mottoman @Woodsy @Maximilian @doughty @welshblue @MJW @Seerose for all of your best wishes <3

 

Surgery went well, I'm home and feeling great.  May have to have some chemo, but not long term.  My surgeon is positive he's got it all this time :)

 

Now back to my work on here 😁 which is a wonderful thing to have and I enjoy it so much :D
