Voting now open until 31st july/1st august. see down the page for contenders...

----

You know what to do :D

entries open for 6 days until late night on saturday july 24th/ early sunday 25th july.

NEW!
where possible, upload you entries into this gallery:
gallery/album.php?album_id=19
or use this Direct Link to upload. Either ulpoad your entries with your username as the image name... and add a description as a photo comment for each picture, or upload each photo individually with a description for each one.
Then please link to either the photo page, or use the album image tags to link to the picture, such as "{album}xx{/album}" or the image-url link box (though you will need to retype your description into your post in this thread).

The reason for this is that the photos are then already on the ukastle server, and therefore are less likely to crash. remember that the winning image will be on the homepage, and so it doesn't look good if the image server has crashed and so we have a blank box on the homepage where the image should be!

There are 5 entries at the moment. PLEASE remember to add a description/caption to the image describing what it is, otherwise it may jepoardise it being put into the voting round.

Nominations are now locked.

Voting open for 7 days until just after midnight on saturday july 31st/ sunday august 1st
numbers in the poll relate to the numbers alongside each respective thumbnail image. remember not to vote for your own image(s) as this will be checked on our advanced control panel before the winner is announced.

contenders are as follows:
(click each thumbnail image for a larger pic, description, and creator)

1 101

2 102

3 103

4 104

5 105

6 107

7 108

8 109

9 110

After voting has finished, I would like feedback as to whether this method of POTM is preferred or not over the previous method...

I have finally got around to making a written copy of the general guidelines and procedure for the POTM competitions - please take the time to read this as it may affect you for this competition:
viewtopic.php?f=11&t=208


Present voting stats are slightly different from those in the poll results list, because one image has a vote on it from it's author - and so (as has been said in previous months) the vote for this image will be moved down to the next image in the list if the vote has not been re-cast before the poll ends. I am aware that in some cases, shifting a vote down to the next image may make the actual result different from the results shown in the poll, especially if the result shown would have ended in one image either winning or being in a tie for the winning position.

Just as an example of the results, I know that USL has voted for image 9 in the list and Alex has voted for 2.

well the clear winner is David's pic of the Siemens Kuwait in Hucknall.

OK, so what did everyone think about this new way of doing the POTM? At the moment I only have 1 feedback review, which has been positive. After just putting the winning image into the winners gallery thread brough up a little bug on the homepage: the image on the homepage is shown within an "iframe" so that resize links are shown, but because the image from the gallery has a url of "image.php?album_id={xx}&image_id={xx}" where {xx} is a number, the iframe wasn't reading the image id variable and so a blank box was showing up instead of an image. a quick bit of php rewriting has fixed this (and much quicker than I was expecting!), and works by determining the url of the image so that if the url contains '.php' then it is to find and add in the image_id variable within the output url of the image.
