Default lack of wholesome competition

I always ask myself why there is not any kind of wholesome competition in TE such as:

- most viewed or critiqued post of the week, month, year...;
- best picture of the week (or worst);
- contest of the week: submit your picture for the theme "sports" or whatever

I think it would be another way to learn from the others, since this is a place for experts and novices and a good motivation (one more than the simple critiques).

Why not? If there is a reason for that, I would appreciate to be aware.

Waiting for your thoughts...
Thanks,

Hi Carlos,

There is usually a SCAV Hunt (General->Scuv Hunt) once in a while here in TE. But there seems to be no active one this year yet.

Thanks Gani but where exactly is this "General" option in the site?
By the way, nice to know that at least there was before...

I thought it was clearly mentionned all over:
Learning about the world.

Featuring countries, cultures ... seems to me far more appropriate in this aim. Photographic skills are still present to support that aim but isn't the target on itself here I believe.
Therefore a bad photo that learns a lot about the world has certainly his place here, the inverse not that much.

TE requires a certain discipline or limitation, an extra challenge.

Bonjour Carlos,

After having opened the "Gallery", you will see a certain number of tabs : [Photos] - [Critiques] - [Workshops] - [Travelogues] - [Themes] - [Scav Hunts] - [Categories] - [Statistics]
Choose Scav Hunts.

Amicalement - Viviane

Thanks Viviane!

I'm kind of new in this site, you know...weird that all of them closed.

Cheers,
Carlos

Nice observation but I just don't agree with "...the inverse not that much". I'm sure an excellent photo post with enough tech and criative info can help a lot as much as a bad one can learn from the world, at least I have learned a few things from what I see and read. I don't think that can corrupt the discipline, can it?
