Well, I just closed the status bar to see if it was easy to get it back. It's not! How do I do it?
Oops, try the usual clear browser cache etc... maybe you'll have to look at it in a different browser, does it appear if you log out?
Good luck

We really need to step up our game. Nearly 2/3 of the way through the month - 58% of the required posts. We're looking at about a 10% shortfall...

My calculation is less dire - we reached 60% of the month last night and will reach 2/3rd tomorrow - but I agree that waiting until last day is foolish - especially since top two posters today have already announced they will be busy during part of the coming week.

I started yesterday, but I'm managing for the moment... besides, it's useless to be constantly online... things don't happen that fast.
You clear the backlog in the morning, then in the afternoon, you post a couple of pictures, then you log again after dinner

Most of us can't be online posting all day. I best I could dip in and look, maybe drop a post or two lunchtime

I do that, it's quite a backlog, takes 30 minutes at least to catch up...

I'm retired. It is hot here. I don't mind spending several hours looking through old photos for those that deserve a second or third or fourth chance. I've seen a lot more good KP and K-70 images than I had expected, based on the way the K-1ii was received.

Well, with ten days to go, we seem to be about 23 hours behind, which is better than the 25 hours behind that we were last night. If we do the same for the next ten days, especially since some people will become all excited at the end, the whole things is entirely possible

We will be giving away a Pentax K-1 in June, July, and August- 3 cameras total!

Stay tuned for details on the first of June, and be sure to check in often
Wow, that would be great!

Still in the Fuji camp, I'd often thought about switching back to DSLRs for better grip and "feal" in the field.
Maybe someday...

The most important thing is to simply continue to contribute. We need roughly 1500 posts per day. When I went to bed last night, I wrote the number to go - 14526 - on a pad. This morning the number is 14244 .... fewer than 300 in 8 hours. I don't know if the eastern hemisphere regularly posts less than the western does or not, but if you extrapolate that to 900 per day, it is not enough. We need a constant flow of comments, photographs, and comments about photographs.

it will take a total group effort for sure

I am curious as to whether the rules for the contest may be discouraging members from participating in the necessary build up

considering no credit is given to those who are posting the most

I know you can check the daily contributions by members by going to the forum home page and going to the bottom of the page

I wonder if it would be possible to see total posts by members since the contest started

Adam posted something at the halfway mark... I imagine not much has changed, with bertwert solidly in the lead, followed by reh321 and me. Can't quite remember the rest, I'm afraid
