      Re: Alternative idea...

      Obviously happy to go with the majority, but for what it is worth I really like the 'winner sets and judges' aspect. I think it means we get a wider selection of more unusual themes as they come from different people, and also I enjoy the what sometimes seems quite random judging which only comes from it coming from different and inexperienced people; I worry that with one person judging them all a particular style will eventually emerge and people may start to feel that some form of favouritism may be happening (even though I'm sure it won't actually happen but you know how people can take offence and see patterns where they don't exist).
      But I do thank Brian for the suggestion and the offer of such a commitment, and I'm sure you would make a brilliant judge if we do go down this route.
      Yes it is unfortunate that we are currently stuck in limbo but hopefully normal service will resume shortly.

        Thanks Alex....I think we should stick with the existing arrangements....we appear to be at a loss regarding an August challenge now.....something needs to happen to restart the process. We need someone to make a decision on closing and / or judging the last one.

            We could open up to suggestions from all members for the subject of each challenge....and accept offers for anyone to take on the judges role each month - otherwise the coordinator would judge and set the challenge
            We could even publish each months challenge in advance for the remainder of the year.

            How about a points system where the more you enter the more points you earn on top of points for ranking for each challenge.

            does that appeal anyone?

            I think I'm experienced enough to have a stab to start with for 2019.....

            What do you think?
            That sounds like a good idea to me. I haven't posted anything yet but I would definitely have a go.

              Thanks for all of your comments...for the time being we should continue with the usual formula....it remains that the last challenge is yet to be judged.

                I’m happy to go along with whatever is decided, I’ve only entered once and I must admit was concerned about the judging element, however I knew that by entering I was committed to following the rules, unfortunately I didn’t win and then didn’t have the opportunity to enter last months so I’m disappointed it’s currently on a break
