It troubled me to see people trying to set up Challenges based on criteria they felt they could win. Prizes for all!
I felt it was a way of helping people look differently at what they do - when you look over a year's worth of shots by an individual over a short time, you realise how narrow most of us are. I didn't upload it, but I pulled out a rarely-worn DB in the DB Challenge week, and received more compliments IRL than in a long time. It wasn't that the suit was great (although it is!); it was just that we sometimes get stuck in a rut without realising it. Contemplating the pin-stripe challenge, I really put some thought into how to match shirts and ties with pinstripes or chalkstripes. Some posters could have benefitted from similarly using their time!
Vox's absence didn't create the void - he left at a time the void was growing. When I created a thread for WAYWRN 2010, I started looking at the posting of many people, and realised a lot of well-known posters had stopped posting, but were still viewing SF almost daily.
Maybe a challenge such as Pretty as a Picture
would draw Vox out - haven't seen the bowler for a while.
