Try PWO Contests. Seems to be the next step in the evolution, but having trouble getting off the ground.

Don't really think that's the problem with DPC, but at least it's an attempt to do something about an issue members always bellyache over.

Noooo don't leave without me... Phew I caught the bus and just registered. Looks like the start of an exodus, maybe this is what us needed to make the powers that be take some positive steps and make some improvements.

Yep, it's run by a DPC member ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31.gif', '/') + 1) . ' jeger along with his photo blog. I guess it's not surprising that there are so many DPCers over there

In addition to the previously mentioned reasons for reduced site participation(old design, to much forum drama, not enough forum drama(hello R#se)) I think the global meltdown has affected participation. For me it did. I found myself working additional hours at a new job, being more careful with spending, etc, etc. It is likely that I haven't been the only one affected by the economy.

I don't know. She did come back at least twice. Once as "espy2" and again as "Limerick". In the latter case, she told a great sob story (I don't remember the details) and members started taking up collections and donations. I know Bear had even offered to send her a camera.

furthermore, I see it as almost a duplicate of this site but with a facelift. I notice a few differences but largely it's the same. What's motivating you guys to join?


Maybe the fact that it's actually run by someone we "know" who's trying to be responsive to his membership?

The forums over there have not been active at ALL, but that could change if a few people started talking and it snowballed...

Outside of DPC, she was also a "pageant mom/grandmother/official or something" and had also been booted from a variety of websites, including one about kittens.

It's all such a shame. I only knew her as limerick, and I liked her very much. She had incredible talent. It was hard when everything came crashing down. I didn't know what to believe anymore. I wish we still had access to her profile. Her painted with light series was quite good, and I'd love to go back and learn from it now that I know more what I'm doing.

I looked at PWO. A contest with one entry? And people here are complaining about 80? And I would prefer to get a 1 or a 10 if that is the voter's honest opinion rather than have it artificially limited because of the number of entries.

I will stick with the original, or at least the first site like this I came across.

She was entertaining in an unpleasant way.

Actually, I don't think the problem is the website or anything on the technology side. The recent dip seems to be because of some really bad blood on the forums. I miss the forums of a couple of years ago (or even last year). I wasn't here during the heyday of DPC, so I don't know what it was like then.

But I used to be able to say what I thought, felt, imagined, whatever. If I put my foot in my mouth doing it, art would come along and make fun of it and everything was all right. However, over the last year it seems like we had a number of people who took offense at the least little thing. I found myself ignoring almost any forum where certain people were posting, and I noticed others do it as well. Even Art was flamed and backed away. We've lost a lot through this, and I haven't seen the forums recover.

I'm here for the competition, but I'm here more for the camaraderie and the community. I've tried another competition site but the community was lacking and I haven't been back in awhile. During the last month or two I log in here, and there are forum posts on the front page that haven't been posted to in over 15 hours. I don't remember that happening before. I keep going with the challenges, but it's getting less and less interesting because there just aren't as many people to talk to or things to talk about. :(

(the fights used to be more fun. Now when they happen, they're just bloody)


Oh shut up Wendy! :P

You can get an idea here.

And here: //www.dpchallenge.com/forum.php?action=read&FORUM_THREAD_ID=304940

The name for her forum posts seems to have been changed to her later name; "espy2". Her original name was "Rose8699"
