    I hear ya, brother.

    And another thing I can't seem to get past is that I need to pick a picture that will win the contest, and NOT the picture I think is the best in regards to the compositions of photography (and again, I'm a novice).

    i share most of my stuff, if it gets 20 likes in 5 minutes it must be doing something for someone, even if it doesn't particularly do anything for me :crazy::lol:

    I'm an ex-combat photographer and most of the stuff i see on the social side looks terrible to me, but it will have 2,345 likes and nearly as many shares. What's popular and what's good don't always orbit the same object.

    But, i don't really take any of this seriously. After years of working for the military and then doing weddings and stuff, this is just a fun thing to relax with.

    ...and we're all at the bottom looking up at the votes you've already gotten on your "that's the one" pic. :bowdown:

    I ventured out of my comfort zone to at least *try* to compete with that. GJ!

    You missed the deadline, but this photo mode competition is still operational until @ZEROX says "The Competition is Closed". :)

    Shame we can't add logos to suits and helmets, Mr Yamauchi?

    Nope, not here. My main hobby is photography, and sometimes you can get 2-3 keepers out of 100 shots.

    I need something nerdy to obsess over and the new contest can't come soon enough.

    For what it's worth, I haven't heard from @SlipZtrEm yet about the next topic. He's probably just busy.

    Sorry for the late reply peeps. Been busy this week and as for the competition, I'm waiting @SlipZtrEm to messege me regarding this competition. I figured we both have been busy as well.

    Stay tight, it's still well alive. Just a little slow. :cheers:

    ---

    Oh yeah, forgot to mention the competition is officially CLOSED
    Thank you for these lovely entries. I just can't get enough of Red Bull livery car!

    Sorry to be negative but maybe there should be two hosts or something for these comps both with authority to keep it running if other is busy. And if the previous winner takes too long with the theme and/or top 30, sorry lost your chance the host will make those decisions. I’m saying this because in my experience these comps start dying when they are not run regurarly. And since there obviously is lot of interest for this one (and lot of very high quality interest !) it would be a real shame if this would go away.

    I appreciate a lot the work @SlipZtrEm has been doing here, I just hope something could be done about this. Again sorry for the negativity. :(

    Back in the days when there were 4 comps each week @Nato_777 had volunteered to help out with running things. There may have been 1 or 2 others as well but I forget now. The WRS has a team of stewards that all help keep things going. If anyone has time and would like to volunteer I'm sure @SlipZtrEm would appreciate the help.

    The plan was actually to have two other co-hosts for the three comps (PCARS2, FM7, GTS). Unfortunately, just before they all went live, both backed out. I say that without malice — real life could and should come first.

    No other parties have expressed interest in helping with the hosting since. If anybody is interested, I'd be more than happy to receive a PM about it. But so far, there's been nothing.

    I should also point out that there's no one-click approach to making the polls. For the GT Sport one in particular (as it's the busiest), it requires going through the posts of each finalist and grabbing the code, then adding it to the body of the post, plus populating the poll itself. This is also slowed down by people not following the methods listed in the OP for posting images; it happens with around 20% of the entries, if not more. Any other method — like using the "Upload a File" button instead of GTP's Media section — slows things down, as I then have to rewrite the code to have it display properly in a new thread.

    Plus, with the expansion of the news page, an accompanying article needs to go out. That requires time and effort as well.

    The next batch will be going live over the next day or so.
