    I must have put in the wrong width and height values.

    It's fixed now.

    If any of the other thumbnails are the wrong shape please PM me.

    Or, if any are missing altogether!

    See, you appreciate Hiccup more when someone incompetent does the thumbnails ...

    Just to say...

    If you entered, you bladdy well should vote! Mr Russell, you're the worst offender :mad: :D

    What's this big thing about voting?

    I've given up several hours of my time doing the thumbnails this month.

    I made a point of being online til 9 last night for late votes after having been at work in front of a computer since 8 in the morning. I'm only online at the mo in case there's more cock-ups with the thumbnails that I need to fix.

    If you look at my post count -- over three years, I post less than once a day. I don't usually spend my whole life on this board.

    I'm making a point of not voting this month!

    :mad: :mad: :mad:

    people have the decency to look at my photos, then it is only fair that I should take the time to look at theirs and vote.

    I always try and vote but there have been a few times I haven't ( along with not entering) due to no internet acces ie when I'm working away from home.

    The DECENCY to look at your photos?

    So every time you look at someone else's photographs on the Internet, you do something for them in return?

    Like send them a donation or an email of thanks or something?

    You spend a lot of time on the Internet. You like voting. 14 000 posts or whatever.

    Not everyone remembers. Or frankly, after working a long shift in front of computer would like to spend a second more in front of a computer. Personally, after 7 pm, I am tempted to chuck my PC out of the window...

    Would you enjoy making time to do something that you got nothing out of and found boring like putting up a thumbnail page?

    Just because you felt you should devote some time to it...

    Anyway, enough of all this. Back to the voting.

    OK, that is my absolutely last word on the subject.

    You make that point every month. Have you ever actually voted?

    Voting would have been quicker than writing that. :D
  23. Paul Russell

    Paul Russell Psychogeographer

    Eh, I've noticed you've said that before.

    Yes, I have voted many times before.

    I really don't get what this "not voting" thing is.

    The only thing I feel guilty about is not doing the adding up for the photo competition.

    Because that looks like a shitty job. I've had a go a few times, but always end up with a different answer. Really.


    I will not be

    doing anything in the future.

    sorry about that.

    please don't do that Paul, your contributions are always well recieved and the competitions would be a sadder place without your input, it shouldn't matter if you vote or not.

    I for one don't care but I do care if you flounce off.
  25. Paul Russell

    Paul Russell Psychogeographer

    Oh yes, and I was sad enough to find last month's competition, and found that I voted in that one.

    Which I don't remember doing, but the evidence is there!

    Fully fledged flounce.

    Final goodbye from the photo comp!

    Come on Paul, don't go. Nobody really gives a fuck whether you vote or not, but people do give a fuck about having you around and seeing your work.
  28. Firky

    Firky The first of the gang Banned

    There's no need to spit your dummy out. Just because I feel that people who enter should also vote (we should perhaps take this to PM or another thread as not to derail it.
    It takes perhaps five or ten minutes of your time to look through the entries, and post your votes. Less if you had the joy of doing thumbnails, as you've already got an idea what they're like. I've added up the results before and also had totally differemt results, my maths is crap!

    Don't flounce :mad:
  29. exosculate

    exosculate a stagger with a beat

    What is that expression about the exception not proving the rule?

    I've put on record before that I like your photography. I would also describe myself as an unobservant type in many respects, I walk past people in the high street that i know well without even noticing they are there. Which is why my observation of your general lack of voting is all the more peculiar.

    All I am saying is this - in a community orientated competion it does not seem to be in the community spirit to rarely vote. Yet be prepared to give up a great deal of time to something like thumbnails.

    I do not understand the motivational element in this!

    What the hell is going on? I don't understand this pressure on Paul Russell or anyone else to vote! :mad:

    People will vote if they want to, if they have time... Some people might not agree with there being a winner (I know sometimes I wish it wasn't necessary)...

    Don't go, Paul Russell, the place won't be the same without you... :(
