    I would start by contacting FrankB. I'm sure that he can give you some insight on what worked and any difficulties to anticipate.
    As I remember, choosing and settling on a monthly topic was always a bit of a problem.
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    My choice of words may have been a bit unlucky; seems I've invented the word "contest" in the context of this thread.

    Just sharing photos and getting comments on them would be the most valuable part for me. Extending it to a contest, where all participants (or perhaps even all APUGers) can vote for their top 3 (or 5 or...), could be a nice extra. There doesn't need to be any prize other than eternal fame for one month

    I think we should start with some content and maybe, starting in 2007, we can have a month contest from this. What do you think about that Jacco?

    In the past, there was a poll. People would throw out suggestions and then a poll would be taken to pick the best one.

    David has the experience with this, but it seemed towards the end that the poll system may have been too democratic.

    Personally, I'd be OK with a system like this,

    1) people throw out ideas
    2) the moderator is a benevolant dictator who picks a good one or choses his own.

    So, does this mean that David is a benevolent dictator?

    The earlier gallery was called the "APUG Challenge" and it was meant to challenge yourself to make a photograph on a specified subject in a defined timeframe and then share the results for the enjoyment of all. Not a competition, except with yourself.

    That's really OK with me, even if we completely forget about the contest aspect. It's not about the contest for me [COLOR=DimGray](although it might offer a solution to the problem of choosing a subject: let the top-3 of month n decide on the subject for month n+1)[/COLOR]. Really, forget I mentioned the word "contest"

    [SIZE=1]Contest? Who said that?[/SIZE]
