I never understand why people put so much effort into whining about the image challenge. If the standard of the entries is so low, either make something better or go and do something else.

/not directed at Wobbly Bloke in particular, just something that annoys me.

# In answer to your questions:
People whining about the image challenge: Because this is the norm when a new compo comes out

If the standard of the entries is so low, make something better: I just did - Up there ^

not directed at Wobbly Bloke: Your to kind and yes I love you as well

Just something that annoys me: Sorry

# Fair enough.
To your first point, though: why do something because it's "the norm"?

I got an image challenge suggestion picked once. It was spoonerisms, and there was a lot of popular support for it from many regulars on /board. As soon as it was picked, people started complaining about what a shit compo it was.

Yes, it's the norm. I think I complained about the "pylons" challenge when it was announced, but it turned out to be brilliant. I just say give it a chance, think of a good idea, do it, and wait for the good posts to turn up on the popular page.

# ok
1. You looking at b3ta is the norm - posting images is the norm - looking and laughing at other images is the norm - being sarcastic about the image challenge is the norm - B3TA IS THE NORM

2. I liked the Spoonerisms one and yes it did get slagged of because that is what we do on b3ta

3. The Pylons one was the best and where I did my best work but this also became the norm - with one bent Pylon being used on a lot of the images.
