    Not having had formal training to run the competitions I have fine tuned and adjusted things as they have cropped up. The requirement to photograph pens in the landscape format didn't seem right after I received one entry that would clearly look wrong if it wasn't in Portrait format and that is the reason I have relaxed the requirement for this competition. It was rather stupid of me not to have foreseen the possibility of images in Portrait Format for this competition, before it started, once I received an entry that showed there could be a problem I again adjusted and fine tuned the requirements.

    I am sorry that you will have mistrust in the future with my running things and to that end I will see out the current competitions and step down, so you will be able to put yourself forward and possibly show us how to run things properly.

    Not having formal training in making pens, any computer work, the tyranny of distance from the HQ of the forum to assist the forum in running competitions would seem too far away to me.

    I like the fact that after the event you have seen fit to fine tune this competition for one entry. In the same vein this could apply to no props, plain paper background,presentation of entries on the flat and horizontal.

    Contributing in the next competition I look forward to a conclusion of them for this year, they have given me a challenge I have met always within the rules set by yourself receiving guidance from you from time to time as to definitions.
    these have allowed me to conform in the best way.

    Come on let's not fall out over a what I see is a very slight change of requirement which to me came over as advice and will help portray competion entries in a better light.

    I enter these competitions for the fun of it and get great enjoyment from looking at all the different approaches that forum members make.

    We should be grateful that someone has given their time to organise these competitions it is not an easy task and is very time consuming. If not careful we could loose this fun section from our Forum

    I second this approach, the thing I miss and I assume in the UK you are better placed is being able to pick up the phone and say hi about this and that. Sometimes I have been tempted to get on a plane and visit so as to meet members.

    In another forum I have done this and have many firm friends all with differing views.

    I was just looking at well over a hundred pen blanks a guy called John in the UK ordered from me ,he felt he wanted to make pens from a lot of Aussie Blanks , I bought them in from all over. He then dropped out of the forum, sad story for me.

    Not dampened but happy to have entered so many comps, will do the present and the next one. Not an easy task all round.

    Good to see another Super Moderator I guess there are more on the forum as well.

    I have nothing for this comp I'm afraid due to severe back pain. I am more than happy for you to continue running the comps Peter (Buckeye). Rules are not laid down in stone & sometimes need to be altered to suit the needs. I'm happy with this as the same criteria applies to all entrants so the handicap is the same for everyone. Have another think Peter.
