I'm looking for feedback on the photo contests since we haven't had a lot of participation lately.. I understand how life can get in the way yet maybe there is something different I could do? I'm trying the poll option for voting this month.. We use this at another forum with great success.. Will this be helpful and encourage more voting?

Let me know your take on it.. After I hear from you all I'll be deciding on whether to continue with the contests or not.. Maybe I'll just drop the Your Neck of the Woods contest now that we have a Sharing album.. Thank you for your input! Very Happy

I say keep the contests, even if the responses/submissions are few. They are a "welcome" to the site's homepage. I wish I could've taken some website worthy photos when we were up over Easter break, but we were pretty busy! So, just encourage those with photos to share to do so, and we'll be happy with what we get!

I also think you should keep the contests. Some times there are only a few and other times there are a lot, depends on the time of the year. During the winter, there are less people are on the island so there are less submitted. I also enjoy the different pictures on the home page every couple of months.

I agree that you should keep the contest even if there are only a few submissions, and I like the way that we voted this time. The winning pictures are a great addition to the home page.

Smile A picture is worth a thousand words, however life doesent always have time for it.....I must say this site always has so many pictures throughout the year that are so enjoyable and creative...There are ups and downs as far as postings,however even if one does not visit the site often ther are always many great photos to cach up on and enjoy.......Just my two cents.....Regards, Kevin...... Smile

Keep'em.

I have backed off posting photos. I got so enthused about posting photos, that I kinda over did it. But I love looking at all the entries. Definitely, keep the contest.

Hey John....Keep 'em coming! I wouldn't say that you've overdone it at all. I check the album everyday to see if there are new photos....I love them and they make me feel closer to the island.
