Class warfare!? How can that be when you represent the power of the Federation and I'm just a lowly ale purveyor supporting the resistance?

I say leave it as is


Scan it at home, upload to Photobucket, rinse thoroughly and post at leisure from work.

I'm sure that nothing will change, but I'm a persistent cuss.

So, your suggestion would be to cut off any discussion in respect to ideas that might improve the guidelines. I'll certainly take your viewpoint under advisement. Do you have any opinions on climate change?

I believe all suggestions should be freely presented and discussed. Zero harm in that. If someone does put forth an idea that makes the contest more fun for everyone (or at least the majority) it probably will be implemented. To a point someone made earlier and something I've observed. The member contestants are generally the same people every week with a few strays here and there (mind that I'm still a relative newbie). This tells me this contest is not everybodies cup of tea. If we put more restrictions in the rules we may lose a handful of core players.

Having said that, I predict a very high turnout for the current Star Wars theme. May infuse new blood into the game. Anyway, it's an interesting discussion.

It's FRIDAY.... to the bar......

No that is not my suggestion and I said nothing of the sort. You sound like a reasonably intelligent man so I suspect you knew that and were just attempting to be snarky. (I'm ignoring the climate change question) I am all for voicing opinions (obviously) but when you keep making the same points over and over again perhaps it is time to move on.

Re: finding pictures online.. isn't that what the majority of people are doing in the double connections thread?

If I misread your post, that's on me, but from my reasonably intelligent perspective your comment seemed condescending and dismissive, ...deserving of a little shark, excuse me, snark.

Repetitive points, ...really? That wasn't my perception, but I guess that's on me too. How many times did I voice the same opinion in your estimation?

In the Double Connections thread, all of the images I post are scans from my collection, but in setting it up I didn't make hard and fast rules that apply to other's images. Of course, that thread isn't a contest, it's a challenge, ...a noteworthy difference.

I'm not losing any sleep over the Contest of The Week rules. If Googled images are the standard, no problem. All I did was present my observations. Food for thought, nothing more.

As you've suggested it is time to move on. If you wish to continue the discussion via PM, feel free.

Cheers,
Cat
