I just entered my first challenged with the "wheres waldo". I just think it would interesting if everyone posted the score they got on their first challenge

Here was my first embarrassment!

Place: 214 out of 215
Avg (all users): 3.876

It really wasn't that horrible, but it was the size of a postage stamp. Live and learn.

5.411 64%. Not too bad, but my average is lower than that now after 16 challenges. That's probably not the case with most people.

4.4 something
Don't get me started...I'm still not over it! lol This shot was taken with my first digital camera.
My second entry was even lower at 4.2ish.
Forgot to add: Good luck, Gi Joe!

5.575 and 72% for Textures II. Some folks just get lucky right off the bat. Dogz started with two consecutive ribbons. Good luck and welcome to the insanity!

My first challenge:
Place: 97 out of 305
Avg (all users): 5.517

I think this is an interesting thread, really shows how much progress some people have made!

It took me a few challenges before I understood that the way the photo represented the challenge had to "stand out". Obviously, I still don't get it :) Good luck to you.

Use the rightmost button next to the word message, and paste in the number of the image on the site, e.g., in your case, your entry, the URL is //dpchallenge.com/image.php?IMAGE_ID=130899, so the number is 130899, and you place this in the dialog after pressing the "Insert Thumbnail Link to Site Image" button.

(Edit: Removed thumbnail...now that it's posted by author)
