    Jon, first of all thank you for archiving the Photo contest pictures. :thumb:

    When I was browsing through these collections I had an idea:

    Would it be possible to attach the respective ranking list to each month's pictures? Or perhaps only the first three places of that month?

    On the other hand: Would be desirable at all to have such a list? :confused:

    Question is if I am alone with this wish??? Perhaps we could dicuss or vote about this in a separate thread. (It wouldn't make much sense if you had the work to do this and I am the only one interested in this added ranking list.)

    IMHO just the winner is enough, if we even need that. This is a friendly competition more geared at getting some other peoples cool layout pictures posted for the rest of us to see and admire. I've seen results when if you posted the top three finishers you would have to list almost everyone who submitted a picture. :) Lots of third places get just 1 vote and might be 5 or 10 of them that get 1 vote. Everyone who enters IS A WINNER in my opinion. FRED

    You're welcome Ron, glad to hear the effort produced a desired result.

    Before the "Big Crash of 2004" I had located the winners of all but Dec 2003 and entered the winners name at the start of each archive. I plan to search and locate as much of that information as I can soon. I won't have any information on runners up on past contests. Maybe we should list winners and runners up in the future, but I agree with Fred, they are all winners. I just can't afford to send the grand prize horn hook coupler to each enterar :D :D :D

    Or even the winners it appears. Still waiting on mine. FRED

    November photo contest?

    Anyone organizing this? What's the topic this month?

    Val - I'll start the Nov/Dec contest soon after the Oct contest is over. The Oct contest will end around the 15th. It was an extended contest.

    The Nov/Dec contest will also be extended to get us back on the normal monthly cycle. Since it will cover Dec., we'll make it the same theme as last year, Christmas (or any other winter holliday) or winter scene.

    Thanks Jon. I didn't realize October's contest was extended.

    A winter scene is one that I can do. The only thing is I had help from my son on the layout so it is not just my model. I look forward at seeing other winter scenes.

    You made your son, he made part of the layout, I say it's your work ;)

    Getting "Help" doesn't disqualify anyone.

    Can it model or prototype?.. or just model?

    Living here in the land of snow the former is pretty easy to manage!

    btw.. Hi John, long time no see!
