Congratulations, Alex! A double win -- the monthly challenge and having a child to share Christmas with.

I hope AlexG will see this and take over the next challenge....I saw that he was on the Forum yesterday.

I was wondering about this too and with the removal of private messaging I wonder if the best thing is to find his original post in the competition, use it as a quote (as I have with yours), and then when he next logs in he will get a notification. Just a thought.

So hard for me to understand this. No doubt I am very self-absorbed and when I am in the final voting I check obsessively to see how my bears are doing!! It has happened now and then lately that people don't seem to understand that winning means taking over the next challenge. We are counting on you Alex. Wonderful evocative image! Let's hear your idea for this month..

I propose that if we don’t hear from AlexG by the end of today, then the win should go to Olivier Parent, who was the close 2nd place entry.  Any thoughts?

If you go over to his profile https://discussion.alamy.com/profile/8326-alexg/

you'll notice that he does check in once in a while. Maybe ask him in his most recent thread?

edit: if you quote him, then the little notifications bell will go off or at least show up on his page when he checks in.

A quick look over at Google reveals a LinkedIn page.

Maybe give them some time to wake up on the West Coast. 😎

i know the month i won i followed when i saw i was leading (mainly stressing about potential of finding a subject 🙂 )  .....  could i suggest that in winner announcement post the person's forum ID be linked so they get a notice at top  ( using @ then  starting to type the ID give you a list)

 

@AlexG your attendance is required...

This was such an exciting race with a possible tie at one point. I'm disappointed that Alex didn't know what was happening. He should have been having fun.

Hey! Thank you for the award!

I really just noticed. I did not get the notification earlier. I am very honored. I wish the photo would result in some sales though. =P

Woohoo! I had no idea. Don't know how these really work, haha.

 

What do you mean by January challenge is in my hands now?

You have to call for entries, then set up the poll and announce the winner. If you need help I'm sure Michael will offer it.

The winner of each challenge gets to pick a topic, word, theme for the next challenge.  Wim has been keeping a running list of previous challenge topics if that helps.
