Are you happy with the monthly Challenge or would you like to see another format? Currently, it is designed to just get you to post images primarily to keep the dust off the camera. Would you like to see it turn into a contest monthly contest?

Contest denotes prizes. Where would they come from? I think that we are getting a good response now. If it ain't broke... Cliff

Competition is more interesting. Prizes are not necessary and a month is too long to hold my attention. JMHO!! :rolleyes: (this from someone who won't buy green bananas either). LOL!

I think that the way the Challenge is now is just fine, and in saying that maybe just a little more narrow in the challenge subject criteria. What do the rest think about that?

I just initially was gong to vote in the poll and this is what opened up when I clicked on the poll folder. Then went back to the polls and saw the actual poll voting folder and voted there.

Hi Art, Firstly, thank you for supporting this post, So many have been motivated by this post, even me! ;) I would say, perhaps, pick a winner, And they get a "star" alongside there avatar each time they win Also, the winners can enter in the next months post but have to wait a month to win the next star More thought needed for this but that's a start Regards, Gary

There doesn't have to be Prizes. I don't care to win a mouse pad, T-Shirt etc. It could simply be an electronic prize, as Gary suggests, a start under your AVATAR. PN has a very, VERY basic Forum setup. Some sites are extremely elaborate and track posts, give medals etc. These are all upgrades you can do to a site to make it interesting and encourage more member participation. It is a bit gimmicky, but it can also be fun and add some colour. Colour makes people more interested and you get more participation and more members. Laura, I think you are used to the Weekly Challenges! ;) They are fine provided the people who Monitor them are on top of it and are consistent. I would find doing a Weekly a Challenge in itself. A month gives most people lots of time to get something together. Again, the goal is to give everyone a chance to participate. On the Weekly Challenges, I seldom enter unless I happen to have something going or co-incidentally have the opportunity to shot a picture because I remembered the Challenge. Right now, my photography is limited to the weekend only and only if the weather co-operates!

Darrell, Can the posts in this folder be merged into the posts in the POLL folder. I have no idea how this folder got setup! Sorry, most likely an accident on my part. Two folders on the same topic is not productive, especially since there are some good discussions here as well! Thanks, sorry for any inconvenience.
