    AP Moderators Competition - want you views

    Every so often I run a competition for the site moderators, as a way of saying thanks for all their help with the site.

    So this time round, I want your help. What should we do? Run a photo competition, with a theme? Perhaps something completely different?

    So c'mon, tell me what sort of competition I should run for the site mods.

    Perhaps an "ode to the mods" poem contest.

    I don't think I'll ever see
    A mod that's not smarter than a tree
    If all the posters read the forum rules right
    The mods might get some sleep at night.
    Been here, not done that.

    This is a comp that the mods enter and members vote on.

    Poetry? PLEASE keep it photographic.

    Maybe ... best image taken with a Pentax?

    mmm, the idea of poetry,
    surely, appeals to me.
    And if the poem
    has to include the word Pentex.
    some may suggest,
    it's heading down the right tracks!

    I love the idea on the last line

    How about Bill's idea of a creative self portrait with a poem to go with it

    Poor Mods, this is supposed to reward them, not cause a major stress out, or ask them to buy/access a Pentax How about something like a photo in their favourite genre with something like ISO limited to 100 or, pushed to something ridiculous like 3200/6400 cheers Deb

    This would be the photo each mod enters for "judgement."

    I prefer the stress option. Much more fun to watch them squirm a little.

    Other option is to push it into a genre they don't know at all potentially, like videography. Ask them to do a 5 minute video on their day...
