I know everyone must be terribly busy at this time of the year - but I'm hoping for more entries for the Christmas Garland Competition.  Or ............... it can be delayed for a week, if enough members ask :D ....... I await your responses

My opinion is, don't let it die a slow death (kill it now).  I know people are busy, etc...but, even I found this challenging (and it was my idea!)  :lol:

Unless someone is currently working on a submission and needs a couple/few extra days, I say stick to the deadline and let's move on.

Valentine's Day  saves me a PM ... I was going to pick that ... tough new host less than 24 hours after winning :D:P

 

Sorry, Welshy.  Just call it 'first-time' jitters!  Regardless,  the theme was gonna be Valentine's...:D

Why ?  I'm more than happy with how it is.  Same results ... great art by all the entrants.

Well, with the way it stands, I'm pressured to enter. :P

 

Now you're both under pressure!   :lol:

Is there any special reason the poll for 'Valentine’s Day' is open for two weeks, rather than the normal one week?

I'm not necessarily saying two weeks is bad; I'm just curious as to why.

 

If you go back to Page 76 in this Discussions Thread - June  16, 2017 - this is when it was decided, due to dwindling entries, to make it a fortnight.

My question still stands...

 

I think the question ("Is there any special reason the poll for 'Valentine’s Day' is open for two weeks, rather than the normal one week?") assumes an incorrect premise that the normal SOTW entry period is one week. As Pixey mentioned, around the middle of last year it was changed to two weeks, in order to attract more entries. All the contests since then have lasted two weeks. Even before it was officially changed, the entry period period was often -- more often than not, I believe -- extended when there were too few entries.

 

EDIT: Obviously I need a course in reading comprehension. I skipped right over the word "poll."

Oops, my bad.  I incorrectly assumed the poll was also open for two weeks...(I never checked :roll:...never assume...)

 

All fixed now.  Sorry for any inconvenience.  Thanks, @toe_head2001 for pointing that out!    :)

My fault :doh: sorry.  What a difference one word makes :lol:.  It's official ..... I had a blonde/senior moment when reading Toey's post.

I noticed about half the entries in the current poll were broken postimg.org images, so I've fixed them

 

Thank you toey.  I was on the SOTW poll a couple of times yesterday and could see all images just fine; so I didn't know there was a problem.  

These hosting websites are getting weird...

Hi @Seerose     Go back to my comp posting.  There are three (3) links that will help you.

 

The theme is taking an image and making it look like a tiny miniature toy set if done properly.

 

Good luck!!  ?

I'm missing something. If didn't use up all my votes in past comps, I use to be able to go back and vote again. Is that possible now?

 

No, once you cast your vote(s), you can't change/add votes.

Sorry if you only selected one, but meant to select a few others too.
