    The photo competition seems to have died a death again :(

    Should we try to revive it?

    I was talking about this with recently with Mr.Bishie (over a pint, so I promptly forgot to start a thread :facepalm:) and one idea we had was just to use the monthly photo threads and vote on whatever is posted there. It'd mean there'd be no themes, but all of the photos would be fairly current and quite varied.

    Thoughts?

    I won’t accept anything other than a full return to the glory days and original rules :mad:

    It was a bit involved with all the voting and what have you.

    I think it would be easier with a simpler vote - no points for 1st, 2nd, 3rd etc. Just a simple one vote poll, one with most votes wins. Takes the pressure off somone having to do maths :D

    Why not just anoint the image with the largest number of likes as the winner?

    Might work, but gives an advantage to those posted earlier in a month maybe :hmm:

    I don't think the maths is especially inconvenient, and I like the 1st/2nd/3rd voting scheme.

    But I also like the idea of basing the competition on the monthly photo threads, with maybe an explicit requirement that all images be shot in the calendar month. This encourages people to get out and use their cameras, rather than just going back through the files to grab a nice photo they took years ago. I know that, in the old photo comp, I tended to be lazy and just enter stuff from my archives.
    Apart from the problem of timing, suggested above by beesonthewhatnow, it would also mean that you couldn't do multiple images in a single post. Every picture would need to have its own post, because you can only like posts, and not individual images.

    On the timing thing, perhaps the voting could run for a week or two into the following month to allow everyone time to vote?

    Maybe on a separate thread to the photos?
