        In an attempt to kick off some discussion, I’ve posted a preliminary list of photos for Vote-Off #8.

         

        You can see it here.

          I’ll quite happily take part, let me know when you are starting and want the pics.

              Will do but I’m still waiting for feedback on the pics.

              I’d probably have preferred a different set of pics to the last one I did, but you know what works best, happy to go with whatever

                  I’m not sure I do know what works best. lol.

                  I think the count of 6 is about right (not counting the verification photo) to not get too long while giving room for competition. I like having a different theme for each Vote-Off but so many people have complained that such things make it impossible for them or too difficult to take part.

                  I keep opening debate (for many of the vote-offs) on what the photos (or video) should be but consensus is rare.

                  “… such things make it impossible for them or too difficult to take part.”

                  I agree with them, it excludes too many that just can’t manage a more difficult theme.”

                    All noted and pics are fine. Not sure when I will get round to take them though so will confirm when I have.

                      So, is it safe to assume that the photos as listed are fine?

                        *So, is it safe to assume that the photos as listed are fine?*. Yes. I’ve just done mine, not seen the results yet but I may be ready to go.

                              I don’t have a date set for starting the voting yet as no-one has sent photos yet. We need a minimum of 4 participants, although I’d much prefer 6.

                              I was hoping for more discussion about the photo specifics but it seems everyone is happy with them as they are.

                              To be honest, my main worry is there doesn’t seem much interest in voting amongst non-participants. We probably need around 5-10 voters but it would be fun to have a LOT more.

                                  Oh, the guidelines page used to say to wait until it opened before sending anything, I missed that it changed, sorry.

                                  Maybe others didn’t notice you had opened for submissions either?

                                    I don’t know. A few people told me they would get the photos to me over the past few weeks.

                                      At last count, I was supposed to wait.  Is it too late now?

                                        No, not too late at all!

                                        The Vote Off Instructions page announced that Ed was ready to receive participant’s submissions weeks ago, but no one seemed to notice. I made an announcement about it on this thread last weekend.

                                        If you’re interested the Participation Instructions are at the link below

                                      Hey everyone, Ed’s ready for your Vote-Off photos. John, Martin, and NakedMadCat, I think y’all were planning to participate? Anyone else?

                                      Remember, this is a fundraiser for Ed to keep this site running.

                                          Just to clarify, there is no set closing date. I can’t close submissions until we have enough people to run the vote-off. If I close before then the vote-off won’t happen.

                                                I haven’t heard back from Martin or NakedMadCat.

                                                Did John upload his submission, he’d said to expect them last weekend of April?

                                                Did Sangroid5k (@antonx) decide to enter?

                                                How many submissions have you received in total, are we anywhere close to at least four?

                                                    One submission so far and that doesn’t match the photo list (clothes off in wrong order). I haven’t heard from Martin or NakedMadCat either. Sangroid5k sent some photos but only 4 and they don’t match the photo list either. He’s since stopped replying.

                                                     

                                                    I’m feeling a little demoralised.

                                                      Perhaps, don’t worry about the exact order. Everyone involved understands that if they are selected on the next round that something is coming off!

                                                        I don’t blame you.

                                                        The parameters for participation in the Vote-Off couldn’t be clearer. I can’t imagine why folks would say they’ll participate in an event intended to raise some funds to further this site but then just ghost you or submit unusable entries.

                                                        Regards the latter. There’s plenty of space to post their own thing on the forums and discussion boards (within the site rules), and plenty of room for interpretation of the MDL items.

                                                        But the Vote-Off is a contest that hopes to get people to spend a few bucks to cast votes so the site can keep going. Every participant has to have the same comparable set of photos to keep it simple and straightforward.

                                                        I guess you’re just expected to keep everything running to suit everyone’s desire and expectations and also pay for it all out of your own pocket.

                                                        Guess I’m demoralized too, but, Hang in There! And let me know if there’s anything more I can do.
