I'll add to the apologies for the delays, they have been nearly exclusively my fault for the last month. :)

Great news. THANKS!!

WOW! The wait is over. I am now on holidays so probably could join in after all if there are any dropouts. Put me on the waiting list, Marac, if one exists.

So the measure of the week challenge between teams with be a Wednesday (rollover from Tuesday night challenges) to Wednesday. I guess the bene here is the ability to shoot/have the whole weekend without having to rush to get an entry in for a Sunday night rollover that would end/begin the TPL week:-)

Is each member of each team expected to enter an image in every challenge in a given week for each team match? Then the highest four scores from each challenge for each team will be compared.

Or, is every member going to be expected to enter one image in one challenge in a give week for each team match? The the teams highest four scores for that week will be compared.

If every team member submits to at least 1 challenge in a TPL week they get the bonus 0.5 points and the best 4 scores from each team member will be used.. Only 1 score from each member can be used.

Got it, so you don't have to enter every challenge in a given week, but doing so may increase you chances of get a higher group of four scores and if every member of the team enters at least one, it gets you a .5 bonus as well.

Is there a website that we can see standings as they come out?

For most of the rest of the world the Tuesday night (US time) rollover is happening on Wednsday. In Aus and Asia it's already the afternoon on Wednesday. So for you it is the Tuesday night rollover MAK is referring to

What she said: on DPC time, we END a challenge at midnight every Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday and START a challenge as soon as the clock shifts to the next day: 00:01 on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

Thanks, MAK! :) You're doing a good job (and so is everyone else behind the scenes)!!

So to be clearer...(at least for me)

Next wks announcement for the challenge will be our first "competition"? NOT "B is for ______ Challenge" - we do not have to have entries for that one - Mar 5, but our first one will be announced on Mar 6th @ 12:01 (ish) voting to start on Mar 20th (Challenge TBA).

So Start Date is

MARCH 6TH

I think you mean announced Mar 6th, voting to start on Mar 13th, and results to be announced on Mar 20th?

No, no website ever - the results will always be posted to a thread.

Which is, I think, better anyway - as that way it's a part of DPC, not an outside website that might go dark.
