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!    :)

Oh, I see what the confusion was! I should have read the original comment more carefully (the story of my life). Two weeks would certainly be too long to keep the poll open.

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 have removed my entry for this weeks competition for personal reasons.

Thank you to those of you that voted for it. Hopefully you'll understand.

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.

I assumed everyone would know what a Bell Pepper looked like - but I will add a link to examples now :)

@Pixey! That's right. But you also give pointed peppers. Therefore better if there are examples. :)    Thank you for your effort. :coffee: :cake:.

I don't get this weeks SOTW. After hitting the randomise button on the plugin are we allowed to modify the sliders or do we just just click OK and leave everything on default ?

Yes, you can play with the sliders!  :)

 

What's the point then of using Random Effect then? If you can keep clicking until you find a Effect you like, and if you can change the Sliders (and other controls), then it's not so random anymore.
