Yeah....sadly the days of the '100-vote check-in' are long gone...usually I go more for 50.

Score 6+ but only 4 votes...

Um... better get those glasses checked, or cut down on the adult beverages... ;-p

Is it just me, or did very few of the entries strongly convey a mood? Maybe I'm just not in touch with my inner child...

My mood is darkening by the hour as I plummet, then plummet some more. Will there be no end to plummeting for me?
03/04/2016 10:35:12 PM · #14
I plummet as well. Maybe we can set up some harmonic plummeting.

I'm stuck at 4.4 and it's my first entry. I'm thinking abstract shouldn't have been the way to kickstart my membership.
Aw well...that's better than a score of 1. Wish I'd get some comments, though. Do people do that? I mean, I'd be happy with an "omg, that's the terriblest".

Edit: Yeah. This noob just posted on the wrong thread. I get it now. Mood challenge. Moody thread. :D

Plummeting faster than the speed of light

Maybe it would help if there wasn't a double space between the two halves of the description.

Don't go beating yourself up on your first entry! Sure it's a bummer, but it happens. And scores go up and down. Mine's a half-point lower than what it was yesterday, when it seems people were in a better mood :-) And comments...yep...we do try to encourage positive commenting as opposed to just 'ugh that's awful' type of comments. You can make comments too, you know :-)

Everyone has to start someplace. The good news is, it will be easier to beat your average on your next challenge!! :)

Seriously, though. The scores don't have much meaning. Some challenges score really high, some score really low. It's just a fun (or not so fun... ;) benchmark. I use it simply to compare against myself. When the next challenge comes around, I consider it a victory if I beat my average. If I don't, I have another chance coming up quickly.

I have done so many things that I never would have even considered before joining DPC. I've made my kids freeze in the James river in the winter to recreate a "princess bride" scene. I have trespassed to shoot an abandoned civil war tunnel. (and my mom was the best at guilt trips. So that was huge for me. I don't do that type of thing. But it was a blast!) I've carved SPAM. I've killed off my husband, my son, my daughter's friends (I don't seemed to have done her in, yet...) and replaced them all with squirrels. I've stripped off my pants to wade into the water to get the perfect shot because I didn't have time to go home and chance before work. Again -- so unlike me...

The shot and the score are secondary. The experiences can be priceless if you just go for it. :)

None of the 8 guesses are correct. I guess it isn't as obvious as I thought!
