I'm hovering right about my average... a little over, then a little under and back and forth it goes..

Hajeka - do I stand a chance against you?

I was quite pleased this morning around the 35 vote mark (hovering at a 6) - but has since fallen to 5.5xx at the 50 vote mark.

Have rec'd two comments that have really made this a worthy challenge regardless of score this time. It's always fun to connect with someone and know that you did. :-)

Definately Barry. I wish you well in the challenge. :) May we all beat our averages! (not looking good for me right now though...but still lots of time I guess)

Interestingly this challenge started out with me getting a very nice comment before I even got a vote. From someone I do not know, but she did not vote, just left a nice comment. It is the only comment I have received so far. I hope she comes back to vote! lol

edit to add: There's a big difference between our two averages though, so you did have your work cut out for you!


That's awesome... I will give you the early congrats on your victory (not to jinx it at all), I dont think my photo will climb to 6.9 after the start I have had.

I must admit, I am quite relieved, I got a headache brainstorming ideas for Zen... I really didnt want to have to enter it. Thanks for saving me :)

Don't concede too quickly! It's only the first day of voting and I've seen my scores dive on the last day of voting many times!

Kristin, I started very low (4.5) when I woke up, but at the moment I'm just .02 below your average, but it is above my average, so I'm just waiting....

I think I'm going to be out unless some minor miracle occurs. I've actually gone up a bit but I'm still below my average.

Well, no wonder! You can't "brainstorm" Zen, that's as un-zen a concept as I can imagine. No, you go to your quiet place and let Zen sneak up on you :-)

Woo hoo ! There's hope! My score is just a hair over my average.

5.3922 vs. 5.4000
06/16/2009 05:39:10 PM · #69
I'm doing OK - about 0.4 over my average at the moment - but there is a long way to go!

When I go to my quiet place it is Sleep rather than Zen that sneaks up on me. And I suppose caffeine would also be un-zen-like. So that means I am in big trouble if I survive round 1.
06/16/2009 10:44:04 PM · #72
Ah, I've been reading the rules wrong......! I thought it was how much you managed to increase your average, I wondered how you were going to do that when more than one challenge is running..... It's all clear now. Typical male really, jump in without reading teh instructions......!

OK, well in that case ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' budya i have no idea how we are doing coz obviously I can't see you score..... :) I can tell you're doing better than your average though....

We're we agreed that it was only Sunday challenges? Or does mid week still count?

Oh, bummer! That was actually quite an interesting way of looking at things. Alan, with your 186 challenges entered increasing your average by that much in a single challenge is quite impressive.

My understanding is that only the member challenges count.

I'm afraid you're in big trouble then Erik ;-)

I'm sorry - I totally misread the original post and for some reason I though the first challenge for this was the one posted yesterday i.e. Zen. I'm not in Duotones :-(

Totally my fault. I guess that means I forfeit and you go through. Congrats on being in round 2 and I'm sorry I never gave you any competition. You're a worthy quarter-finallist though, although I bet you'll go further. Good luck :-)
