Kind of taking the cheesy way out (not you voting, but the entries without who the style emulates in the title). Instead of narrowing it down for scrutiny the entry is taking a blanket approach; "hmmm ... this might look like xyz's, abc's, or even 789's, yeah that's the ticket ... cover 'em all".

I guess technically it's not in the challenge description to do that, so nevermind. :-}

I kind of forgot to add who I was emulating in my title... doh!!!

Mine still hasn't broken a 5!
Haha.
It's ok, I learned from the challenge, had fun, and that's what matters.

That'd be Pierre de Coubertin: "The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part . . . The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well."

Then there's Grantland Rice:

For when the One Great Scorer
comes to mark against your name,
He writes—not that you won or lost—
but how you played the game.


And this is idiotic? Why? We can only have one winner per challenge; are the rest of us idiots?


dear bear
it was said in jest

Would anybody be interested in a "debriefing" thread after this challenge? Submit your original to the person you tried to emulate and have them edit it to see what they really would do with it. Then we post the entry and the edit from that person together.

Getting almost as good as I'm giving, but plenty of opportunity left to drop.

Not in this challenge, but is anyone else experiencing a standstill or no votes or maybe 1-2 votes coming in in the last 26+ hours?

I ask because I've noticed a hard stop stall in votes in another challenge. Acknowledge / Inform users of website problems?! reports of logging in problems have once again surfaced. Note August 24th's post numbers Cory #82, GeneralIE #91, Cory #94, Ja-9 #99 and CNovack #100 to get up to speed on the issue without having to read all the pages.

I just got the BEST comment - the commenter guessed the style being copied was, well, mine! It wasn't, but isn't that cool?

Hehe. I'm not sure if that is ironic or appropriate.

Sorry to hijack this thread, but I just saw this...
I cannot access DPC from home on any PC or my tablet. If my phone is connected to the home network, no dice - no DPC.
Drop the wifi and my phone will connect. Can connect from work. It seems my IP is block.
Are other having this problem.

Check This thread for info a solutions -- search for "hotspotshield" for a possible fix, but please read everything after that -- they're trying to collect info so that it can get fixed. It's not problem DPC can fix, it's up stream. So they're looking for users with the problem to help gather info.

congrats to those who actually did something that wasn't their style, and actually stepped out of their comfort zone, even if it cost them points (or in my case, gained me points)
