1. remove the title until after the challenge as we are voting on the picture not the title.

2. Remove the username from the comments as there is no need to have the name of the user tell after the challenge.

The more I hang around the more comments I see in relation to the title of photos. There should be no need to have a title as we are voting on photographs not titles.

No user names on the comments would stop the PM'ing during the challengs once again letting the photo speak for its self.

Just some thoughts

Thanks

DPC started with anonymous voting/commenting until after the challenge. It was decided thereafter that most people wanted to see the commenter during voting as they would see them afterwards anyway.
I always liked seeing them after.. lent more to the element of surprise.

I like both the titles & the commentators names to show during the challenge.
I bet if we made these chaellnges happen we would start with the suggestions to have titles & the names of those who leave comments.

I'd just like them to fix the Horizontal Scrollbar of Death that I get on every page when browsing the site with Mozilla. Probably due to a 100% width somewhere but I've been too lazy to look for it.

I tend to disagree with the title comment. I think that is somewhat explains a reason for the picture in a certain challenge letting the voter look at it through the perpective of the artist.

As a newby here I'm still seeking some clarification. If we are to vote on the picture alone then imho the 'caption' should not appear. If however we are voting on the 'mood' the picture is depicting then the caption helps convey the message.

If a picture paints a thousand words, 4 or 5 more won't harm!

As for comments I'm yet to offer a challenge contibution (the standard here is excellent) and wonder how I'll feel when its critiqued. At least if someone puts their name to a comment it means there are prepared to stand up to their comments, I take it this is a forum for learning and improving their skills?

I think part of the original point was that too many titles are used as explanations instead of titles. I agree with this part. I hate long titles that are actually explanations but I still think regular titles are fine.

I'd rather see that resolved with allowing both the title and description to be visible while voting...

but if you need that many words to have your photo meet the challenge does it really?

I just see it as each week we get an assignement and are asked to come back with a photo, but more and more you can see where the photo is not meeting the assignement(challenge) but the title is being used to show the correlation between the two.

I just think we should be judging the photo not the words.

Title?... I like seeing titles as well as the challenge of coming up with (what I believe are) good titles for my own entries. If one prefers, the 'title' is optional (just leave it blank).

Comments?... How about an 'anonymous' check box to the 'commenters' identity hidden during the challenge (at their option).

well, a simple answer is to have our webmaster allow voting with or without titles, it would be interesting to see how the votes differ (rather like the with/without camera votes)
