Last day to make your vote. Please take the time!!!

Marc Langille has an opportunity that might only come once in a lifetime. He created this thread:

Which over 1100 people have viewed. He needs to get into the top 20 to have a chance. It takes all of 5 minutes to log on, create an account and place a vote for him. I understand that a certain number of people won't want to vote for various reasons. But 1100+ views of the thread and only 160 votes?

I'm disappointed we can't take the time to support a fellow forum member that has given quite a bit to many of us. I've worked on a few things with Marc and he certainly has been generous with his skills and time. I hope in the few days left, we can be the same for him.

I agree, Peter. In fact, I wish we could vote more than once. Believe me, I tried!

Allan I know and I sent out a few dozen PM's to various members (many of who voted - thanks). But several were concerned about spam mail from the site etc. I have not recieved anything from the site. It is Microsoft after all and they understand a ton of spam is not a good thing. So that can't be the reason.

Marc has what sounds like a very worthwhile project in mind. I haven't gotten spammed either.

161. Sorry it took me so long, but I had tried a couple times before to find his entry and couldn't (the average person won't read through page after page of entries). I'll ask a few other people I know to consider voting too. BTW, that's not just a gimmie--Marc's entry is a cause I believe in as well and I know he would do an excellent job. Win or lose, hopefully he doesn't give up on his dream. Photography + something you really love/believe in = great results.

No spam here, either. I haven't been here very long, but I voted for Marc anyway simply because I believe in his idea!

Good Thread - I could not agree more ....

Spam Sman - I would bet 95% of us have an email account specifically for registering on sites where we are concerned spam may happen.

And I have received no spam either. Marc deserves the chance and you can really help, nuff said.

I've gotten zero spam and I'd bet I was very early in the voting que. We have what, three or four days to gather 300 votes?

Please read the proposal, register and vote for Marc - the cause is worthy and the photographer is worth the effort.
