POTW Selectors for 2014

Each week, one of the moderators or administrators selects an image that, for whatever reason, catches their eye. Please feel free to add your comments here. Vigorous discussion of the images and techniques is welcome and encouraged. Criticism of any mod for their choice is not. Please note that this is "Picture of the Week"; do not confuse that with "best picture of the week", which is a concept of which we have no understanding.

Postby biggerry on Thu Jan 16, 2014 11:14 pm

This year we have had some extras come on board to help out in the selection of the POTW, welcome and thankyou, it is a enjoyable and thought provoking experience (if you make it :) )

I wish you luck in your selections, be creative, bold and different, do not hesitate to choose from the heart and break the rules :)

into conclusions, could you please explain
what the list means? e.g.:

June

Thanks

They are the dates of the month, (normally Tuesdays), when the named soul is to choose a POTW and post it up on the forum.
It's like a duty roster, in military parlance. :D :D

Thank you Matt. So I get to choose POTW on:
Mar 11
Jun 3
Aug 19
Nov 11
Good, as I haven't done it before, apart from
looking at pictures and making a choice what
would be the process? Is it similar to how we
post images or is there a procedure I should
acquaint myself with before hand?

summed up nicely - i'll update OP shortly with instructions regarding the logistics of posting and getting the thumbnail on the portal page.

OK, for those selecting POTW who do not have mod or key member status here is how its gonna work:

On the tuesday (or before if you wish) make your selection and blurb and PM it to me and I will post into the POTW category and update the portal blah blah blah...

Regarding the blurb, feel free to write as little or as much as you want, there are no rules or regs on this and its purely a personal thing, if you like to mention others which are worth contenders feel free to mention these as well. Most important of all, just enjoy it and take pride in what you like and select!

If you can't do it or are gonna be lost in a Borneo rainforest just drop me or any of the other mods a PM and we will sort it out! Speaking of Borneo forests anyone heading over there?
