Retirement from PF Photo Contest

    As most of you know, I started the PF Photo Contest in May of 2006. I think it has become quite a fun activity here in the GD forum. However, it is time for me to "retire" from running the contest and let someone else takes over. This will be effective on Nov. 1st, 2008. I will still be running the poll for this week's photo contest.

    If you are so inclined to take over the weekly contest, please contact me as soon as possible. If I have more than one volunteer, I will consult Evo on who would be best to run it.

    Thanks for all your support and participation since the very beginning. It was a lot of fun (most of the time) running the contest.

    Zz.

    The contests are so much fun!! Having taken over for you once, I now realize how time consumming it is.

    If someone is willing to run the contests, I would be willing to help if there was editing needed.

    Thanks zz for all of the great contests!

    Sorry to see it go, it was fun to see all the interpretations. I barely have enough time to even write a couple posts in a day.

    Thank, Zz for the work done and the creative amusing subjects, and I'm happy to take over.

    Told you if we didn't let him win more often he wouldn't keep doing it.

    Thanks for the fun ZZ. Does one need some access to PF administrative tools to run the photo contests?

    No. Evo and other Mentors will assist if there ever is any need to take such actions.

    Thank you, Zz, for all the effort you put into the contest. :smile:

    Off-topic: It's funny to see the phrase workdone linked to the PF library. :biggrin:

    In that case, I will volunteer as well. Or, if Andre wants to do it and is busy at times, I would sub for him. Any way is OK.

    BTW, how do you keep track of which pictures have been previously used and when? It would seem that might be time-consuming.

    One qualification for the "job" is that one needs to have a very, very good visual memory.

    That might make me a poor choice, since I can't even remember my own images. I post images on other sites, as well, and don't keep records on them. If someone else wants to run the contests, I'd be happy to come up with contest themes. I tend to like the ones with some ambiguity just to see how everyone else interprets them.
