Urban Nomad Deadline Reminder


Hey there nomads, tramps, and vagabonds.

Hey there nomads, tramps, and vagabonds.

A friendly reminder that this Sunday at midnight EST is the deadline for week 2 Urban Nomad submissions!

And, don’t forget to remember that this week’s featured cameras are the Fisheye and Fisheye 2, which means that 8 of the 15 winners will be Fisheye or Fisheye 2 shots, which increases your probability of winning by… well, by a lot!

So get those shots in as soon as you can!

Bon voyage!

    One picture still missing for week 2 ;-)
    And it feels better than last week! I have some pictures without negative votes.

    i think votes really don't count (so why are we voting???)
    look at the winning shots and their number of yes and no votes.... so every picture has a chance to win
    good to know

    Uploaded mine! Just to know, are the uploaded pics in the competition for the whole 3 (well, 2 now) weeks or just for one?

    I also would like to know if photos are in the running for the entire contest or just for the week it was submitted. Also please check out my Llama!

    i'm also having troubles logging in! i'm not sure what's wrong.

    photos are judged each week for the week they were uploaded... so at the start of each week, you can upload more shots!

    and voting matters, but also doesn't... some of the best photos got the most negative votes... i think we all know why that is, but it's not necessary to delve into it! a good photo with negative votes has just as much chance to win as any other... a photo with 30 positive votes is not going to win just because of votes either... voting helps us a bit to measure the community's response to a photo, but it has no bearing at all on who wins and who doesn't... judging isn't easy, but we hope that the best shots that fit the theme win.

    does that help?

    good luck!

    @ catcher: did you try to login with your Beta home username? My old one with the capital letter didn't work, the new one did...

    But it feels good to have a positive feedback on a picture ;)

    not onlöy that it feels good, nobody has anything out of a negative voting without leaving a comment! neither the lomographer nor the people don't liking the shots....

    @ champi: my old username is the same as my beta home username, i think. i logged in fine last week, but every time i try to log in, it says, "we're sorry, but something went wrong. we've been notified about this issue and we'll take a look at it shortly." ah, i don't know what to do! thanks though.
