Every member of CWT can vote for the photos but if you don’t enter the contest you can’t win the prize.

Members will have two weeks to choose one photo from each of the eight groups of photos to be posted on August 17th. You will NOT be able to change your vote so make each selection carefully.

From August 17th thru August 31st you will post your choices in order from #1 (first place) to #8 (last place) on a new thread I will start. DO NOT edit your post. Do NOT delete your post and make a new post. No new contestants will be allowed after the two weeks of voting has ended.

The contest prize winner will be decided by points*. Eight points for choosing the first place photo, six points for choosing the second place photo, four points choosing the third place photo, two points for choosing the fourth place photo and one point each for the remaining four photos.

1st place = 8 points
2nd place = 6 points
3rd place = 4 points
4th place = 2 points
5th place = 1 point
6th place = 1 point
7th place = 1 point
8th place = 1 point

24 points = a perfect score.

After the winning photos is chosen all contestants will post their scores on a thread I will start. The CWT member with the most points wins! *If one or more members tie with the highest point score the member who posted his/her choices earliest will be the winner! The winners gets a $25.00 (United States Dollar) gift card from Amazon!!

On Monday August 31st the voting to eliminate half the photos begins!

That sounds like fun. And $25.00 could get me that microwave that I've been craving.

I do have to say, though, that I don't think 8th place should get the same point as 5th place. I think you should make 6, 7, and 8 fractional.

For $25 it will have to be a small microwave. A micro microwave? Maybe an irrational number like π or φ? :smile:

I meant toaster oven. I thought for some time that I might be able to trade points for a toaster oven. Not so, but I still fantasize about my CWT toaster oven. I suppose microwave was bit of subliminal mental mission creep at work. Think big you know.

Maybe a stainless steel toaster oven with the stainless banner etched in the glass door!

I'm not sure if I have understood what I'm supposed to do, but that is normal. Give me something to choose between and vote for and I will vote.
Understood or not. Beard or no beard.
As long as I don't have to grow a beard to be able to vote ... (don't laugh. There were times when it was so!)
And I just had a first look at Group # 1. Now I know what "fiercely bearded" (as Korda puts it) means!
:D

I hope it's not too difficult to understand. Maybe this link will help.

Assuming your avatar is your lovely visage, I'm sure an intrepid photoshopper on here could transform you into "fiercely bearded" in a jiffy :- )>>

Soooo ... to me it sounds like as we should choose one picture from each group and then to post them in the order we like them (means NOT in order of their groups which is what we have till now in the choices thread). What is it now? Am I just missing something in the grammar?

I'd like to see this extended this to include a vote for the least favorite facial hair in each group.
(Just in case you don't have enough work to do on this. Mike.)

When I go to the link where the photos are supposed to be, nothing happens and it takes me to the root directory for the site.

Edit: never mind, I see them now. That's really confusing on an ipad because none of the eight categories are visible unless you scroll way down.

You should choose one picture from each group and then post them in the order you like them. Do that here.

Shoot. Then I did it all wrong. I chose my favourite from each group. :banghead:

Well, so be it. No edit, no delete. Would not change much, btw. But that Pickett is now on 3 and Longstreet only on 6 ... would sure please Pickett and Miss Corbell!!

I, too, was going to select my favorite of each group of eight.

Then from this new list of eight most favorite, list those in order of preference, with #1 being the most favorite down to #8 being the least favorite. Is this correct or incorrect?
Sorry to be so blond about this.
