Default Monthly Challenges

Every month one of the moderators, generally me, starts a monthly challenge. These are getting less and less support as time goes by. These challenges are in the Sticky section at the top of the page, which some members don't look at.
Rather like notice boards, they are ignored
It would be nice if more members participated in these challenges which are just for fun, and nobody judges them. I have already stated that I will stop doing these monthly challenges unless the membership wants them and supports them, so the ball is now in YOUR court. If you want them to continue then you need to speak up and support them. If you don't like the challenge subject then say so and give suggestions for future challenges. The Bird Forum is the most supported forum on Photocamel, let's keep it that way and try to improve it. Rant over

Another point - it is OK to post an image in the challenge even if you have already posted it in the main forum. As long as you have not posted an image in an earlier challenge it is perfectly acceptable. You don't have to post your best image - nobody is judging them. As Kevin said - it is just for fun. Actually I go through my old images, some 10 years old, to find suitable ones for the challenge. Nice to see what I was doing a decade ago

The Challenge is a lot of fun! As Gautam commented, it is enjoyable to look through and grab pictures from long ago - some I wouldn't necessarily post on the main forum today, but critiquing is simply not done on the Challenge.


Kevin is always looking for new recommendations for the Challenge, so if you have any ideas let him know.


Speaking of that, Kevin, do we have a BIF challenge? I can't recall. And maybe a Birds on Water Challenge? We all have shots of ducks, etc.


Join in the fun guys and support the Challenge - it will also add to your K balance!

Thank you Lee, BIF's have been done before but I'm sure it would work again.

Thank you Darrell

Well having put this in the main forum area it has had 56 views, with 3 comments and has nearly dropped off the 1st page. There still doesn't seem to be a lot of support for it

I'll try to participate, I'm guilty as charged and just don't look at them.

Thanks Steve, it's not compulsory
It would be nice if more members took part though
