New Caption Challenge Now through Jan 25, 2019
Posted By: Bob 256, 01-18-2019, 09:58 AM

Rules:
Any forum member may invent and post a caption for the photo, posting the caption as a reply in this thread.
All readers of the thread, including those posting captions, are encouraged to vote for any and all of the captions they appreciate by "LIKEing" them using the forum's LIKE feature.
At the end of the contest period, the host will count the votes and report who won. In case of a tie the host gets to break the tie, but will not otherwise submit a caption or vote.
The winner will be notified ASAP by the current host by PM and a post in the thread. The new host should post a link to the new contest thread at the end of the caption contest round just finished.
Submissions should be text (no video or audio files) — caption, limerick, motivational, poem or prose — whatever inspires you to describe the photo or catch attention. Submit by replying to the thread. Contestants may submit more than one entry but it must be in a separate post.
Important:
Even if you do not submit an entry, please “like” any posts you feel deserve it as this is how the winner is chosen. And if you DO submit an entry, please also find an entry that you like from among your competitors' efforts and "like" that one as well. Enter often, vote more often. and most important: Have fun !
If the image is too big for you, edit your account "Settings and Options" for a smaller display size.

I asked @Bob 256 the other day. He's giving @Docrwm "until "Friday"...

I think if you can't host, don't post :-)

there appears to be a very disappointing trend

although I can see the winner posting in the thread s/he won:

" sorry for the delay, looking for an appropriate photo "

or something similar

well

that is an good excuse

as opposed to the dog ate the photo

IMHO, YMMV

[ in defense of myself, and perhaps others, we have had a recent history of having to replace winners who never did post a new thread ]
