With all the negativity and criticism going around I thought it would be a good idea for all those who enjoy the site to stand up and be counted. I for one do not feel "the roof is caving in" as has been suggested. As long as we have a core of enthusiastic, passionate , compassionate and supportive members DPC will survive. So let me be the first to go on record as being an advocate for this website.
Please No Negativity here. Just a count of positivity! Who will stand beside me!!!!!!!

I love this place too but I often think it is a disorder.

I'm all in as well.

Is it a negative comment to say that I often stay up until just after midnight... so I can see the new challenge and mull it over in my head while I go to sleep?

I thought I was the only one! Before I had a smartphone that's what put me to sleep. Mulling over a new challenge.

"Who is a loyal DPCer?"
Yes! This is the boost this community needs! Find out who is loyal and purge the rest! I saw people talking in another thread about checking out out other sites. Let's BURN 'EM!!

Absolutely, Im here since 2004

I'm here to stay. I've been here longer than I was in primary school (though it doesn't seem like it). This is way more fun.

Me too!

I've been here since January 2003.
I'm not very active anymore, but I do still come to look, vote, read, and occasionally give my ten cents worth.

If I was Queen of DPC, I'd make a few changes to fix some issues, but even as commoner, I still like the place after all these years.

Let's keep trying to keep it alive.

I am! 11 years this year and no plans to stop paying or participating. I may not enter often, but I do check in most days and still vote nearly all of the challenges.

I think the difficulty these days is there are rather a lot of contest sites out there so it is hard to woo newcomers to this site, especially as it's a bit antiquated visually compared to the newer sites. It's a bit like trying to persuade people to buy a 15 yr old car, when they can get a flashy brand new one for the same price.

But I'd be very sad to see DPC fold

2004 and a handful of challenges. Took a short break a while back, and don't have time to chase every challenge anymore. Still hanging around, much to the chagrin of many here I'm sure. Lol

Been here for 11 years now and despite terrible entry/ribbon stats, (638 challenges, 4 ribbons, one of which I got DQ'd into) have learned a ton about photography, had a long-tem bf who was also active here and who also taught me masses about photography (see ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Magnumphotography), have made sales of images and oh yes was Queen of the Critique Club for awhile...so I'd say I'm here for the long haul, even if I enter less frequently.

13 years here, off and on contributer, no ribbons & a few HM's....one of the best photo sites I've experienced because of the members, talent and format. I've belonged to many forums, most have folded. Still keep in touch with members of the former Online Photographers group. Plan to continue on here with DPC.

Chocolate & DPC - my addictions!
07/15/2017 10:12:51 AM · #24
I've been here since 2005. I haven't entered much in the last few years, but I still check in and vote. When someone asks how to improve their photography I suggest DPC.

Since 2014, I feel like the baby of the site still lolol

It is addicting, once you come you can not leave. It is the hotel California of the DPC

I am going through a lot of serious health issues and more serious things at the moment with the family which is taking me down financially and time wise.. due to this my wildlife rehabilitation and a lot of my other hobbies have been forced to be on hold for a while and to take a break from things.

Once things calm down I will be planning on renewing membership.

This site helped me learn especially about editing and post processing and I have tons of new Afinity photo/photoshop ( I dropped photoshop) learning to do yet. I have really enjoyed the extended free study.
