    Picture competition - rules

    Hi all,

    We wanted to start a little picture competition, we hope you'll join in!

    We want shots that are Action, Artistic, Cool, Funny, Scenic, Social...maybe even down right odd too (got to allow Stuart in a category).
    Obviously this is a bike forum so my expectation is for your RR etc to be involved in some, but, not just studio pictures of your bike copied from the showroom please This is not Bike-of-the-Month (which is frustrating as I have nothing to add today except those kind!).


    • Upload a picture directly to the forum using the Insert Image button in the tools for a new post, and uploading from your computer.
    • Use Photobucket etc and stick the Direct Link in the URL option for the Insert Image, or alternatively just write "[IMG]Replace this with direct URL[/IMG]"
    • Upload via ForumRunner/tapatalk.


    NB: If you can't upload to the forum, email me the photo to alex@s1000rr.co.uk and we'll upload it to the forum photobucket (Soof and I both have access to both) and send you the post to get it up on the site.

    Rules:
    1. ONE submission each per month.
    2. Give the post a Title and/or short description please.
    3. Try to put it in a category or 2 - Artistic, Action, Funny, Cool, Scenic, Social.
    4. NO COMMENTS! Might sound a little harsh but I want to keep the pictures submitted together in the thread, to make sure the voting gets done. I'll create a year long sticky comments thread which you can always use.
    5. Nothing NSFW (Not safe for work).
    6. Nothing with 3rd party copyright.


    Now the important bit!
    1. VOTE - for as many as you like in the thread by clicking THANKS under the post.
    2. Don't vote for yourself!


    There are no prizes, yet... but lets see what we can achieve.

    I'll create the thread for APRIL 2016 in a moment. Please post pictures to the thread for the month we are in! I will sticky it.

    If you have questions please post them here, not in the Month thread.

    Thanks all - we can't wait to see what you can come up with over the year.

    Alex and Soof

    You can change it, by posting a new one, we'll remove the older one - you'll lose the votes you had though.

    There was nothing in the rules about it being a current picture taken in the month (that may have been an accidental omission Mr Mod?).

    With regards to voting, is it a better idea to only allow 1 vote per member or is that a bad idea? Just a thought, then again i suppose we would have to wait till all pics are posted for the month before voting.

    The picture can be from 1985 for all I care. I just want good photo's. There's always next month!

    This is the first run through lets see how this goes - we can change it next time.

    If everyone votes up your suggestion I'll take it as a good hint
