As the Team Captain of the once Team Equestrian, most of us are still a burnt out from the last DPCO, too many weeks in a row (8 would have rocked) and most of us photograph for a living too! We will sit this one out and also hope that in the future member challenges will become a part of DPCO. We all had a blast, but for many of us it's just too soon to go again.

You may change the team name!

Also I just got word from 21_F.gif violinist123 that team USA Equestrian will not continue this season so if someone wants to make up a team when all other teams are full I will change the name to whatever you want.

That's a shame really we have lost the 2nd and 3rd placed teams, who is there to chase us home now?

I notice lots of folks randomly signing up for teams... does the place of your birth or residence no longer matter at all? If it doesn't why are we calling them Olympics? It is in fact just another side challenge. I would love to see things get back to the way it was intended originally. You must be born in or presently live in the Country you are representing. (exception being the Islanders, made up of a few different countries)

Sorry to bitch, just wondering. Joe you are doing a great job, I was just wondering about the apparent loosening of the rules of residency. :)

Michelle, 21_F.gif colorcarnival,...what are you doing on the southwest team???? You better get back here on the northeast team where you belong!!!! :)

By the way everyone... this year I don't care if one person signs everyone on the team up. BUT I am not making changes to the teams after it all starts. If you have someone on the team that does not respond to emails or is not entering challenges you need to stick with them, harass them, or do whatever you need too to get them to enter.

Email your team members before the first challenge, if they don't email back let me know. I will email them and if I don't get anything back I will remove them from your team BUT it all has to be done 2 full days before the first challenge is listed.

Team captains, it is your job to make sure the people on your team will play. Check out their profiles and if something doesn't seem right, PM them and speak with them... Help them learn how DPCO works and get them to enter challenges. This is supposed to be fun and helpful at the same time. Create a thread on another site and share ideas, pictures or anything else to get your team into the lead.

I'm not the official spokesman or anything, but a fellow Team Sucker would be nice on Team Equestrian... ;-)

Yes I see we weren't up to your standards last time and that you've decided to form your own mercenary team, good luck with your "Olympians".

Go Aussie!!

What is this deal with having it confined with only the open challenges? Talk about limiting the possibilities of having fun with the whole thing, I can drag out a quote from you somewhere where you say this time you were going to include the weekly member challenge. I don´t buy the argument that everyone (non members) should be able to play and if that is the case, having both the member challenge and the open challenge doesn´t exclude non-members. If this is the final verdict, count me out, oooooooohyeah.


I'll play again this season if you include member challenges ... being forced to participate in basic editing challenges sucks ...

From Judi's new team there are a number of names that do not match up with actual DPC usernames: Mundo, Neil, Alex, Craft all are close to several members but not exact.

Any chance you might be able to fill us in on who they really are? ;)

It does not matter to me that Judi is building her allstar team, cause the Snowmen are going to ice the competition!

That being said, I still wonder how it can be called the Olympics if your country of birth or residence has no bearing on what team you can join....

Oh well, if DirtDiver is allowing that, I guess us Canadian Snowmen will simply beat the other teams that are stacking themselves up with photogs from the entire globe. It is rather odd though that some teams are staying true to the original concept and trying to fill their teams with their Countrymen/women, while other teams are allowed to create a modern version of the Ribbon Hogs. Not exactly very sporting.

DD, is it true that the DPCO no longer has anything to do with your home country?

Changing it now would suck since that's the reason most of team equestrian (and others) wouldn't participate.

Sorry I can not do that this time around. I have already set it up for members only on the next round.

That was pretty much decided last season when we had a horse team and team mystery. I don't care which team you choose to be on. I don't care what you want to call your team. I don't care if we call it something other than the DPCO. hahaha
I don't care...

And BTW just because ireneM is playing doesn't mean that the team is stacked.

Although she might get MVP, over all it takes 6 scores to make up the team score so as long as everyone does their best the playing field will be very level.

If everyone hasn't noticed every season I do is different. I am just testing things out to see how they work. Obviously this years ideas didn't work.

However I think I have the perfect solution for next season. If anyone gets upset next season then I give up...

I assumed that since half you members weren't real dpc usernames, that you were stopping non-invited people from joining your team before those who were invited to join could sign up, ie a mercenary team. BTW I have no problems with people joining other teams, there have been enough people in the past wanting to play that there were a lot of people not in there "origin" team.

Anyway we need something to stir up the Aussie team and unite, what better than our long standing captain and highest scorer joining another team :) We now have a few points to make up!

edit 'cuse I mucked the quotes up
