Photo of the month competition - instructions on how to vote for your favourite photo

The theme for the October competition was "Legend", chosen by me, Lynda Bradford the winner of the July competition. 

Thank-you to everyone who submitted photos, which we really appreciate and we hope that you enjoy choosing your 3 favourite photos

Voting is easy but you need to be a forum member and log into the forum to vote.  Even if you have not submitted photos please support those who have participated, by choosing the three best photos, noting the details then tick the relevant box on the poll.  But if you have submitted photos please do not vote for the photos you have entered. 

To make it easier for you we have posted the photos below, however you can also view the photos in the Gallery  where you can see them all at once, in thumbnail form plus you can view larger versions of the pictures by clicking on the photo to see medium size, then click again, to see them in large size. Go to Gallery Album

The prize this month is a 50 Pound Sterling gift voucher to be redeemed from Brixham Steam Packet.  This prize was donated by June Ingram (£25) and the Brigham Steam Packet Company (£25) :
http://www.brixhamsteampacket.co.uk/

Alternatively, June Ingram has offered as a prize the jigsaw version of the winning photo. It will be interesting to see which is preferred!

You will not see the results until after the voting has closed on 1 December 2016 giving other time zones the chance to catch up with the voting deadline. 

Please enjoy viewing these fantastic photos and thank-you for voting.  :)

Well, this is interesting!

4 people have voted so far, i.e. 12 votes are in, and there is not a single picture at this stage that has received more than one vote.

In other words, 12 pictures have received one vote each :) .

I noticed that this morning it just shows how difficult the choice is for this month's competition.  :D

I usually vote at the end of the month, but I have broken my routine and just now voted.  All of the photos are truly magnificent !  But how could they not be magnificent; they are of our beloved QE2 !   :)

Nine people have voted since the poll opened.  I love the interpretation of this month's theme and the photos that have been posted. 

These are brilliant pictures that deserve your vote!  :)

12 people have voted by the 12 November. 

We should aim for 30 people voting by 30 November  :D But we need you to vote to meet this target and make the photo competition a success!

Voting done and as usual very hard to select the best ones.  However the decision  has been made although I will probably over the next few days want to change my mind !!!!

24 votes have been cast so far, and one photo is leading by a large margin.

There is time to have at least 30 ballots cast by the end of the month !

If you have not already done so, please take some time to view the magnificent photos of our beloved QE2 and cast your ballot for your favourite three.

25 votes so far with one photo way in the lead and two others still tied for runner up. 

There is still time to achieve our goal of 30 votes for the 30 days of November.

Please vote if you have not already done so.  And it is a wonderful opportunity to commune with our beloved ship.   :)

5 voters to go to make it 30 by the end of the month :) .

Can we get there?

So many aspects in these pictures that have made QE2 a legendary ship... I wonder which of them speaks to you most?

Hmm
How many members on here ?
How many are active members on here ?
How many look on here every month ?
How many look on here every week ?
How many look on here every day ?
How many are registered but look on here in private ?
How many took time to order a calendar ?
How many take the time to actually submit a photo ?
How many take the minute or so, to sit on their arse, look at the photos and decide, Thats the pics lm voting on

If you ask me 25....ok its 25 votes, but it could be a hell of a lot more
WHERE ARE THEY  ?

I would seriously like to think we can get more than that  >:(
Anyone else share the same view about the poor number of voters :o

I don't know why people can't take 5 minutes to vote in the photo competition, I really don't. I guess people are just busy and take it all for granted.  That's why I'm also not surprised that only 7 people have donated this year to keep the site afloat - without their donations, I'd have had to give up.

I can give you figures for most of these things you ask, but some are harder than others to be precise about.  Undoubtedly a huge amount of people don't log in at all, but do read the site, but I can tell you that many hundreds HAVE logged in during 2016.

All I can say is that I am a member of a forum for my Classic Mini hobby.  I've not been on it for months (but when I have a problem or need to find something out, I will).  My interest level (and time available) varies based on what's happening in my life.  For many people with an interest in QE2 (but its just one of their interests) it will be the same.  For many the drip-drip of photos etc. on Facebook will be enough, but doesn't provide a lasting legacy for a ship like we do here.

What I would like to focus on is the serious QE2 enthusiasts, the die-hards, and the experts and former crew etc.  They really should be here, the only site on the internet totally dedicated to their ship since 2009.
