sarcasm and joking are hard to read without the clarity that vocal inflection lends.

Most posts I read from you don't show much in the way of joking, just you being ..... idk, unfriendly is the nicest way I can put it, or maybe arrogant. I got tired of it and quit posting in these threads.

Your last two posts - my point exactly.

No you can't, you're usually just a prick.

wow maybe you can understand how frustrating it is to have people ignore the rules of the contest over and over and over. Yeah, maybe I am a little over sarcastic, but after about the 10th time of asking someone to resize or follow the theme correctly, its hard to play nice. I'm sorry, but I don't see how a lot of these things can be overlooked so easily... is it really hard to read that your pic should be under 800px??? Seems pretty simple to me.

And I'm sorry if people think I am the contest Nazi, but for some reason I feel somewhat responsible for these things trying to work smoothly. Is it that big of a deal? No, its a little internet photo contest that pretty much doesn't mean anything except a little fun and sharing your work with others... however, is it fair to everyone else who follows the rules to have someone submit something that doesn't and then possibly win... no. If its so hard to follow a few simple rules, then maybe these contests aren't for you or others who feel the same way. I apologize if I'm edgy or grumpy about certain photos every now and then, but like I said... how fricking hard can it be to follow like 3-4 simple ass rules that are in the 1st post of the contest???

Whatever... for the sake of not turning this into an online pissing match, I'm gonna stop right now so... you can send me a PM if you have anything further to say or we can drop it all together and go our separate ways... either way, the discussion is over in this thread.

UdubBadger, I think you do a great job and have no trouble understanding you. Trying to warn people that they're not complying is actually beyond what should be expected. If you wanted to simply say nothing until the voting starts and then disqualify all those that don't comply, maybe the message would be better understood. You could say something like, "the following images were disqualified because they didn't comply with the submission rules."

You seem to be giving people second and third chances and they're pissed for some reason. Maybe next go 'round you could say in the instructions that you're going to stop giving warnings and simply disqualify entries that don't meet the contest rules.

Please keep up the good work. This is a fun little diversion for me.

Dave

Ditto.

I wish i had more time to participate and go shooting. But if i had submitted a photo that didn't comply it's safe to assume that i didn't read the rules. So if you say hey, jack ass, read the rules before posting a pic; that's cool with me cause i am a jack ass for not reading the rules first. it's a fricking contest for crying outloud! Contests have rules! Read them, love them, live them.

And if i did read the rules and still posted soemething that didn't comply i'm twice the jack ass!!

you're far more kind that i would be. I would take Dave's approach and just leave out the pics that don't comply. Simple as that.

Keep up the good work!

Thanks guys, I just want everyone to have a chance to submit their work, I've seen so many great photos come out of these threads both on this forum and over on the Acura forums (former member). I'm sorry if some people take offense to what I say, I guess sometimes the flaming is easier than just trying to be nice but I'll try to take a better approach to it if I feel I need to correct someone... and seriously to anyone who enters the contest, if you see something out of place then speak up (which some of you have). I don't want anyone to think I'm the "Ruler" of these contests. My opinion is no more important that anyone else's in here... these contests are for all of us.

well I'm sorry you feel that way JH... like I said above I'm only trying to make it fair for everyone by enforcing the rules. Sorry if I lost my cool with you previously.

Udub, just ease up a bit. You do a fine job, and I too like picking through the entries, but you take it a little too seriously. Like someone else said, just ignore a pic if it doesn't meet the rules. Just relax, have a beer, no money or lives at stake here.
