How does that sound to everyone?
i think a break is an excellent idea. let people regroup and refresh. will allow the challenges to keep going and not peter out.

If you have poor quality pictures, you aren't going to do well. If your clothes don't fit or the fit/cut deviates too much from SF tastes, you won't do well. In a perfect world, maybe votes would be based solely on execution of the theme, but this isn't a perfect world, this is SF. And the challenge polls, like WAYWRN, don't indicate who is actually well dressed, they indicate who SF thinks is well dressed.
agree 100%. its almost like when one kid is told in school he cant play ball during recess because he is too good. total BS. the theme is merely a theme, a broad outline in which to operate, but the votes are cast based on the entirely of the fit, the pictures and whatever cache the poster is fortunate enough to have.
if you cant dig it, #dealwithit.
