I thought album covers were square!

Actually most are!


I am deducting 5 points off all the unsquare ones .


Again, a bit harsh... hope you're applying some common sense to that rule.

Well, albums are square shaped aren't they?


Actually some album cover images wrap the front and back and are meant to be viewed in their entirety as open... so they would be more of a 2:1 ratio...

And that's just one example. :)


Ok, we can search every kind of exceptions, but 95% of album covers are square and that's a fact ;)

True... but regardless, I don't think we're to call out specific image(s) during voting... talking generically about DNMC is one thing (since DNMC is subjective and up to each voter), but saying "I'm voting down all the non-square ones" is calling out the ones that aren't square. Same as if you said all the ones with four-eyed puppies or any other objective criteria.

Only at dpc would this issue merit such a long discussion.

Next on the list:
Is the sky blue? Are 8-track tapes rectangular, or should we call them "brick-shaped"?

Ok, about scores, votes and all those things - I have received 108 votes! That's a dash higher than usual. I wonder how many I'll end on.

Love getting a 1 on rollover night!

Is it really rollover night already? Well then, at 5.2ish I guess I'm also getting ready to play dead :-(

Getting pinged quite bad, dropped nearly 0.2 in last 10 votes, which is kinda unusual after 70 votes.

Neh, rollover is not till Sunday night

Yes they are (normally)... but the challenge never said that the entirety of the photo submitted had to be the album cover -- just that you should create an album cover. Which I did do, but decided to use it as part of a narrative.

Couldn't make this point during voting for obvious reasons. :)
