could there perhaps be a tab at top where the other tabs are that says something like "common subjects", "check here first" - - I don't know, but something sticky that won't disappear into infinity with old postings.?

Or your two labels would work fine I suppose

Beth, if you don't mind too much, I know you're busy now you have to moderate these three+ new PostHere threads....I'd like to know if it is now a RULE that we post to those threads rather than post our own thread with our news.......thanks in advance, Vivian

Congratulations Matthius and Carolyn!

We PREFER people to use these.

I am not moderating these 3 threads. I am enjoying them. Nobody is lost in them!! They are for everyone to enjoy and congratulate people in and, if people ask if the contests are worth it, or if people sell, they can see here, in the forum YES and who has, rather than search a tbousand.

Many people DONT like this type of thread filling the forums Vivian!


Posted by: Vivian ANDERSON on 03/13/2012 - 5:37 AM

Thank you, Beth. I didn't realize "many" people didn't like us each opening a thread about contest results, but the will of the majority must rule, of course, so be it....glad you're enjoying not moderating, but you do seem to feel obliged moreso than anybody else, to respond to people's posts, because in fact, it is your thread after all, by choice and I'm glad most people are happy to post here.....suits me.! Um....I CAN hear ya know....


Posted by: Isabella F Abbie Shores on 03/13/2012 - 5:50 AM

I do not feel obligated at all!

let's get back to congratulations :-D

Yes, you do that Beth....

This is my favorite Fractal Digital Art Pieces to date. I entered it in 2 contest and this week it won 1st in both.

One by a landslide of 20 votes. I was shocked I never had that many people vote for one of mine so more folks

love this piece too which I am hoping one day will turn into a big big sale! I would love to see it on acrylic myself

I bet it would be so pretty. And as much as I love purple and pink I love this burst of orange glow! OK my

excitement for this piece is not hidden for sure! lol

So, this is the thread to crow about being a Contest WINNER ( took forever to find it).

Well, I've found the secret in being a winner...FIND CONTESTS WHERE YOU ARE ASSURED OF AT LEAST COMING IN THIRD.

My entry was in one of the "Paint from Someone Else's Image" Contests

Combining a little acrylic paint wash with some ink strokes, here is NUMERO UNO:

In a three way tie for first place in the Precious White Rose Contest - The top three all got 5 votes and we seem to rotate through 1st, 2nd and 3rd each time I look at the winners page. At the time of typing this, I am in 1st place. :) I expect it will keep rotating.
