PHOTO COMPETITION

Post by Grandad » Wed Apr 23, 2014 4:28 pm

Has anyone noticed that the photo comps on L4U re-started in February. I had missed it but I don't look in there very often.

The April comp closes at midnight tomorrow, Egypt time, so a bit late but why not post something. It is in the Hobbies and Pastimes forum. Up to three pictures, usual max size 1280 x 1024 up to 500kb

APRIL SUBJECT - ANIMALS IN EGYPT

Any creature in Egypt but as Keefy responded to one question, chips are not allowed with fish :lol: :lol: :lol:

Already put a few in some time back Grandad, just to boost the thread up a bit after all the effort Keefy puts in to it. :up

I was pleased to see it back and hope it gets good support. The new 'up to three pics per member' rule is good and boosts the entries. :up I even won a L4U tee shirt way back :lol: :lol:

Now, what shall I put in? ;)

No suitable thread so this will have to do. Has anyone else tried to log on to L4U and got an unobtainable message. I have tried throughout the day without success :(

I struggled earlier in the day, but got on a bit later so they must be having server problems.

Edit: Tried again at 6.45 pm and could not get in, so it looks like the main server is down, we are on a different server to them. :up

I didn't enter any photos into the L4U "Animals" photo contest cause I've got all my Egyptian photos on my External Hard Drive which is in Canada and I haven't been (in Canada) for a while so I had no photos I could use. I did enter photos other months to support Keefy's contest.

Me too LLL. :up A few years ago the monthly competition (and others like poetry and writing comps) were well supported and a lot of fun. :lol:

But the mix seems to have changed from then. Hopefully by entering the competitions we can rekindle some of the fun and not be so serious all the time. ;)

As you say Grandad, "the mix has changed" and we do seem to have more confrontational posts and even downright rude ones towards some people, but not on here I might add. :up

I'll support Keefy's photo competition if I can when I can get my hands back on my photos from Egypt. Just don't have 'em now. Have also noticed that the number of posters on the Blue has shrunk over time and there are fewer and fewer posting but the 'attitude' is still there and never changes. Sometimes I post but most often of late just can't be bothered.
