Re: Seriously On the Decline...

I know that I haven't been posting too much anywhere for the last 18 months or so due to a job change. I know work 12 hour shifts which added to my travel time leave very little time for anything else. On my days off, I try to decompress and spend time with the family. I am hoping to do more photography and stuff. Supposed to be headed to the ocean for a couple days so who knows what I may come back with.

Re: Seriously On the Decline...

Hi Jimmy, thanks for posting, don't worry too much about this site. If enough folks like you contribute even when you can, there is hope. We can still enjoy the parts that are active.

Re: Seriously On the Decline...

I think in August I may try to generate some interest with a monthly or bi weekly theme. Hopefully people will participate.

The good news is there is no voting, no contest, just a challenge to get our creative juices stirred up. I used these types of things to get better with my shots so I hope they can do the same for others.

Re: Seriously On the Decline...

I think some of the things that occurred that have added to the decline:

The problems with the first PoTY after the admin change. Its not all the fault of the admins either as I understand some of the sponsors pulled out and thus we have winners who never received prizes or at least there was a huge delay in prize delivery. Contests need a lot of planning, and the prizes preset....in the contest coordinators hands to ensure prompt delivery. Because f this fiasco PoTY was cancelled indefinitely.

PoTM. The lack of participation between premiere members in nominating photos, Again some contests had prizes and I am unsure if all prizes were received promptly by the recipient...My comments are as per PoTY.

CCC....Lack of participation among all members was extremely low. Of course some of this may have been due to the offered prize and interest in that prize.

Many things like oh another camera bag, camera strap, image hosting etc....type prizes just are not what people want to compete for. Now say make it a $25 gift car to B&H, Amazon or a prize specifically related to a contest (ND filter doe a silky water theme) and I expect more interest would be generated. Of course this takes more financial interest and investment.

This is on top of any of the communication issues, no one wanting to discuss anything let alone topics about photography. I started a new project thread and thus far I have only seen 1 other member contribute.. This is create a perpetual downward spiral. Traffic is low so no one wants to invest money to try do more. Because there is no investment, poorly run contests and lack of sold sponsor ships...no one wants to really participate here. and down the drain we continue.

Re: Seriously On the Decline...

I'm sorry to say Clark, that without a site Administrator, It's only a matter of time. When I signed in this morning, my computer warned me that this is an unsecured site. And if it's only the few people who remain here posting, it can only get even more stale and unappealing to the masses. I posted on your contest anyway. Hope it helps.

Re: Seriously On the Decline...

I have not seen or gotten anything about the site being unsecured. I will agree that without admin support there is only one direction to go which is really sad. Thanks for posting in the challenge thread Mr Chile

I didnt get that message either, but Im with you. As long as the Admin does not have an interest, it is a matter of time before the contracts run out with the host and domain name.
I saw it recently on another forum. The owners just walked away. Eventually nobody could log in one day, and the site was removed.
