First vote was ok... second two were AMAZING...

Then it all went horribly wrong. Decent enough score, but I don't get (as usual) the disparity...

I feel your pain, I forgot to rename to the much more appropriate anchor to my image, and I dislike my image so much the tempation to pull out was huge. In the end the only reason I am still in this challenge is because of the back story on the image which I think the community might get a laugh out of.

I enjoyed viewing all of the entries and really loved quite a few. Highest average score I think I've ever given in a challenge.

Edit for typos ... Autocorrect on this iPad gets me in trouble every so often. Lol

No votes for hours. Then you get a great vote and before you can enjoy the score bump

BAM

A ridiculously low vote comes.

Maybe people should read the analysis by Woodward found in another thread.

Received a comment explaining why my image was DNMC and that because of my ignorance and misunderstanding of the challenge description, my image was receiving a "2" from the member. Ummmm.... no comment.

Yeah...I received something similar...I think someone is taking the discription a little to literaly! :-)

Rant deleted before posting, it felt good to get that out.
anyways, the TL;DR version that won't offend people:
DPC scores are going down lately as a result of lack of serious participation.
Participation is down because of low scores, some challenges that lack originality, and the fact that north america is currently in the middle of winter and not a lot of people want to go outside and shoot photographs for a prolonged period in these temperatures/conditions.

That's just the way of it, and based on how things were when i started last year, and things i've read since in the forums, that's the way it is MOST winters lately.

Got something similar myself and would rather have this than an anonymous 1 or 2 vote even if I don't agree:)

Actually average scores aren't going down, but increasing!

Sigh! Some people narrow down and occasionally wrongly interpret the challenge description. Usually, they submit an image in line with their narrow (sometimes assbackwards) challenge definition. Then, they become intolerant of alternative creative interpretations of challenges and distribute DNMC votes and comments... like they are God's gift to the world.

Voters are entitled to their opinions and they can cast their own voting scale. All I'm saying is that some people become myopic.. and then they become religious vigilantes. It would be better if people were tolerant and paid more attention to the photography. But, I do understand that some people do not want to compete on a the basis of the caliber of their photography.

Meh...Everyone surely has their own opinion, but if they actually read the description - in this case - taking it literally would be wrong.

What's a good way to get people into this site? I've sent messages to all of my friends even slightly into photography trying to get them to participate but no one ever gets into it. KIDS THESE DAYS. It's all that TEE VEEE AND VIDYA GERMS!
