This thread will serve as a general update hub for Screenshot of the Week. Generally, I don't like creating individual topics for things, since it clutters the forum (and if you're perceptive, you'll notice that I do remove topics once they've served their purpose) so instead decided to simply group them all here. Feel free to post here, but remember to limit shot discussion to the appropriate threads. Now on to our two announcements:

1) There is a slight change in our SotW rules. There was a discussion last week about SotW image size limits, and so I have edited the SotW Rules to only allow shots that are less than 350 pixels horizontally. Since the standard size is 256 pixels, I feel this is lenient, not excessively large, and easy to remember. Obviously, to have the best shot at winning, 256 pixels is ideal.

2) There have been no shots submitted in the past week, so SotW 291 will not occur until next Sunday, May 16.

Actually, that is incorrect. Minimum number of shots needed for us to start up a SotW, would be 3. It's not any sort of competition with just 1 shot, and I've tried the 2 shots thing in the past, and many people were frustrated with only 2 shots, and that's why 3 are needed. Really not sure where you got the idea where "one screen will suffice," but it's not how it is. Thanks.

I've participated in about six competitions in a row--so I am taking this one off (plus, I'd risk having 3 shots in SotM), but, Cosmofeild, and anyone else, I say go for it!

3 may be a minimum, but there were like 7 submissions to Screen Rebirth...I would think more people would want to participate in SotW than SR...

Well, SotW has been around for a much much longer amount of time, and to some people it's just getting to be the same old thing, while SR is a newer competition, so it seems to be a bit more appealing to people I guess. I wish both were busy all the time.

Actually, I was thinking that I only needed to submit one, not counting other fellows. icon_biggrin.gif

But probably not, work seems to catch up with me, so I probably won't have time to make anything. icon_neutral.gif

I submitted one, so that makes at least two. Hopefully we have a third shot in...

SotW is a board competition (as well as SR and MotM). Any member is free to participate. Just be sure to read the rules icon_wink.gif.

We got enough shots this week. I'm kind of bummed out that we didn't get enough for three straight weeks, though. icon_frown.gif Activity fluctuates pretty randomly, I'm hoping that this is just a really dry period.

Once again, no shots this week, so we'll postpone until next Sunday.
