    I've really enjoyed doing the bi-weekly contests. But what else would you guys like to see out of OTAP?

    different "contests"
    EDU's?


    give me some ideas and we'll see what we can do.

    EDU's/FAQ's could be nice.

    The "next picture" thread that was going on a while back was fun.

    I like the contests as well

    I'm not going to go through all the old stuff, but it's something I'll look out for in the future.

    meh, I'll pass on that one. I was thinking more along the lines of what you're doing now, but 2 at a time or more frequently.

    I also wouldn't mind seeing a few "ask the experts" threads where people like ( * )( * ) and a few others open up a sticky for a few days and let people ask questions or post some of their own pictures and get some feedback

    a seperate hardcore critique section would be good :hs:
    people say C+C, but rarely mean it it seems

    As far as I understand pretty much anything goes as long as there are no personal attacks... :dunno:

    To me that is what makes this forum unique...there are some ongoing jokes and everyone picks at each other. There are more than enough serious/strict photography forums. If you can't take a little bit of ribbing from time to time then maybe offtopic.com isn't the place for you.

    P.S. Pelf fix your fucking horizons.
    P.S.2 Jared...equipment doesn't matter so maybe you should buy another $10k camera
    P.S.3 Hypnos_VI get a fucking av you fucking zero.

    Maybe stick with the one at a time and do a photo of the year and photo of the quarter type vote with the top pics from all the contests over that period... :dunno:

    I think participation on the contests has been slowing down so having more than we have now would just dilute the entries across more than one contest.

    I actually like this idea a lot. But it would be nice to see a "behind the scenes" shoot deconstruction. Like the thread Hash Browns posted a few days back, where he posted the lighting setup, then some of the resulting shots with that setup.

    Very cool to see.

    Personally, I'd like to see OTAP remain different from other photography forums. If it becomes diluted to the point where everyone is just giving the same old "hey bro, great shot!" bullshit critiques that you see on other forums like POTN, FM, DPR, etc. etc. etc., then WTF is the point. I may as well go wade through noob bullshit on another "serious" forum.

    Some proper EDU's and FAQ's would be very very useful too.

    there is a difference between offering up suggestions on how to improve versus telling the same person they suck and should put down a camera and never fucking post again

    you should consider actually learning the difference

    You should consider growing thicker skin. Or maybe posting on one of the billion other photo forums where politically correct "sensitive" critiques are offered. :ugh:
