We appreciate all the comments we got in the last thread and would like to hear more about it if anyone has anything to add

Well done Jess and Paula.

Sorry to see you go, Chelle.

It's funny that we can have opposite opinions.

Like Sarah, I left this competition early so I would like to have this competition more than once a year but there are other competitions so I should be busy enough it you decide to do it once a year.

I think once a year is enough, especially with a high level of participants. You've got a range of different competitions which can be scattered throughout the year too so I like it being different every few months that something comes up. You could also possibly just have a schedule where you go through them all (E.G. 20in20 towards the start of the year, Scavenger Hunt in the middle, LIMS towards the end...) which may make people predict around when their fav comp will start. Or I just like lists & schedules


Congrats to Jess & Paula for people's choice & mod choice

Finally I'm voted out been really tough last few rounds to get mine done. While I had fun participating, its also been hard doing this & working my shift. I knew it was probably not a good idea for me to sign up, then my shift at work changed & it made it even harder to participate. But I love that I was able to get so far, even with mediocre icons when I just didn't have the time or energy to make something. I also really appreciate all the feedback & votes (both for & against) as it is great to be able to use that to improve as well as know what people do & don't like. Always great to grow as an artist too


Best of luck to the last three standing in LIMS for the final round Looking forward to seeing what you come up with You're all amazing so already I know it'll be an impossible choice when voting comes

Good luck y'all.

Your arts were great Chelle

I think once a year is good enough. and it gives everyone a break. not burnout having to turnaround and compete again.

i'd like to try it next time too

Sorry to see you go Chelle

Congrats and good luck to the final three!

I agree about how great it is to get feedback on your work, both positive and negative! Always room for improvement

I really like LIMS so I'm very happy to see it go ahead any time, as long as there's interest for it But it is nice to have different sorts of things going on as well so I'm just happy to have a challenge, whatever it may be

Final round, how exciting!

My opinion towards the LIMs is that its a very long thorough competition. Once a year seems enough because the rest of the time, a simple icon challenge is good to get people competing and a 20in20 when more people are interested. With LIMs you need a good number of participants and I don't think you can guarantee that during the rest of the year when people are working, travelling etc.

I think it could have been fun if the the eliminated contestants could have submitted photos for the final round and the then you choose from those photos for the final round. Use one photo or more than one etc.

Just a suggestion for next time.

That could be fun but may be hard to arrange. They would have to hold off on posting the new round while they collected the images. Unless we picked the images during the sign up process. Me for example was last voted out & with my time difference there is no way I would see that & be able to submit a photo before the new round is put up. It's around 4am for me when that all gets posted. Maybe an idea for a future competition though. It could be each person who is eliminated picks the pic for the next round. Sounds like it could be fun

If we knew when signing up then it could be submitted then.
