    Re: Photo Challenge 226th: Food

    There are only about a dozen or so regulars left who post frequently on this site and have been doing so for many years now. I think we consider ourselves friends and as such I have no problem whatsoever in waiting if Barrie wants to re-start the salon in the New Year ....
    "Stef" E-620 and stuff...

    I sympathise with those who have introduced a discussion about the changes, as I am one who has also been troubled with them.

    I think it best if my challenge restarts in the New Year – this should offer many members the opportunity to show some Christmas Fare.

    Thanks for the entries and comments so far.


    B

    Very strange Prima Donna Style reaction on your part Barrie !

    I would point out the following:

    I do not recall seeing anything in the rules stating any comments within the Challenge have to be "on topic" and limited to the current theme.

    This Challenge is the only place on FTU that seems to attract any interest or comments from the few active members left in here. I would have thought any additional input into the forum should be encouraged.

    Several members have made "off topic" comments within what you seem to consider as Your Challenge and have received friendly responses and banter. Some have commented about recent unsatisfactory changes to the forum. Is this sufficient reason to close a contest ?

    The Rules DO state: Enjoy yourself and don't take it too seriously, it’s supposed to be fun.

    What makes you think there won't be "off topic" comments in the New Year ?

    Note: After consideration, my original post has been modified.

    Steff, re-starting the Salon is not the issue here. The issue is the reason Barrie feels it needs to be closed. Apparently he is closing it due to "off topic" comments.

    As you rightly say, there are only a handful of Active Members left now. Actions such as this and being pedantic over "off topic" comments are definitely not going to attract or encourage any new members and may in fact deter existing members from contributing.

    Regards,
    John

    And all because:

    Maybe it's also the death throws of the Forum itself ? RIP
