SEP13 - NATURE - HAZ - viewtopic.php?f=5&t=8422&p=337217#p337217

JIMBOX01 - 3
SDLROB - 2
SPECDECIBLE - 2
RACHIE_D - 2
HAZ - 2
DENORTH - 1
BLAKE - 1

RULES:

For the sake of the servers, we ask that the length of the photo on the longest side be no more than 900 pixels - this can be set when uploading images to picture hosting websites.

The contest ends at 11.59 UK time on October 31st, and voting opens from then until 23.59 on October 3rd.

Only entrants may vote, and must submit their top 5 choices to me, and NOT to one of the other mods - they will not oversee the competition unless I am unavailable for any reason.

Only one photo is permitted per member, and may be changed at any point until the deadline. The photo has to have been taken by the member posting it.

Members may not vote for themselves, and since not voting gives you a higher chance of winning, it will be penalised by a deduction of 10 points [points are allocated as 10 for each first-placed vote, 6 for 2nd, 4 for 3rd. 3 for 4th and 2 for 5th] to redress the balance, unless for any reason the member in question is unavailable during voting, in which case alternative arrangements may be made in advance.

I think that about covers the rules, other than to add that indecent images are subject to the same rules in this thread as the rest of the forum.

All that remains is for me to announce the title. Therefore the October 2013 Planet-F1 Forum photo competition title is:

PATTERNS

Full run-down of the scores:

Haz - 54 [49 for not voting]
AlienTurnedHuman - 34 [no topic suggested]
Specdecible - 31
Tufty - 28
Jimbox01 - 24
Rachie_D - 21
SDLRob - 20
Coulthard's Chin - 6
Denorth - 5
Mikey - 2

A number of you didn't vote - I think due to a PM system error. We will look into that before this contest ends.

Cheers guys, is there any chance we could get longer to vote? I don't log in that often and I don't want to spoil the comp by continually not voting

I didn't get a PM telling me to vote, but I voted anyway.

I forgot that the due date for selecting which photo to enter was based on Euro time...went to narrow my choices only to find it closed.

Well deserved winner, well done Haz.

Not in to knitting or dress making, so I'll have to see what other patterns I can come up with, after my holiday.

Sorry Blake, always run to UK time!

Haz, if we extend voting we narrow the window of the following competition, so 3 days is generally what works.

What if the winner suggested the topic for two months time, and we ran the competitions for the full month, and allow one week for voting?

That would confuse me infinitely, although I would be willing to run the voting out to 5 days and leave things otherwise as they are.

Might have to make a new rule that if we only get one entry the competition extends or is declared void or something. Or maybe we play it totally fair and just give a consolation victory to Tufty to make up for that -50 point finish a few months ago.

I'll use the last competition that neither of you won and whoever ranked higher there will win. I can think of no other fair means of decision. Rock/paper/scissors doesn't work on a forum, sadly.

I think I stand a chance of making the Top 5...

I took this in Chicago, three patterns for the price of one, the building on the left, the building on the right, and the fire escape.

This is more like it, but can we all still win if we get the voting right?

You can, but good luck orchestrating it!

This is my entry.

One that I used before, but perhaps this is the better topic for it? Let me know if it is not eligible. If not use the first one ...

Course you can reuse things, just bear in mind people may mark you down for reusing. That said it's an awesome shot for both months.
