Some feedback.

Long wait times and sometimes multiple clicks required for "My Rating" to show up.

Make sure your rating shows up to ensure your vote is in. Don't leave any hanging chads behind.

Yeah, I noticed this as well. I had better luck voting by clicking on each image and then voting on the larger version.

Unfortunately, I am headed out of the country and will have limited access to look into it. For the time being, please just double check your votes got counted. Sorry for the inconvenience.

In my opinion, the quality of the photos this year is superior to previous years. There are easily 24 photos worthy of being in the calendar.

Tim and Wayne are thinking along the same lines I've been thinking. Trying to get great photos of people actually riding the bike. That's going to be my challenge for 2022. Viper Dad and I did some testing and there's a few photos that were okay, but 2022 is going to push us to get those shots mastered!

Please reread rule number 1 sir. Oh wait, you make the rules, nevermind, move along, nothing to see here. :D

You didn't have to type all of that, a simple STFU would suffice. :D

Kidding!

A little.

Seriously, I just wanted to make sure folks votes got counted correctly and we got a good fair vote in. Hopefully your out of the country trip is for fun and not work and you enjoy yourself.

Tim - when you get a minute, remind me how to REMOVE someone's photo from the voting scoring...

If Ray and Patti's picture gets in (duh), it should be for the month of September in honor of the Rueben Run.

Auburn, I respect your sentiment. Another way to look at it is that this coming January is the soonest they can be on the calendar to salute them and that snowy white whale- I mean Goldwing - could look fitting on a January month of a calendar.

In any event the Calendar folks have some great work to display, thanks to their efforts and everybody elses'.

I'm of the opinion that we should just accept Ray and Patti on the White Whale for September 2022 "by Acclimation".

Agreed, although the voting looks like they will be the #1, which is a fitting tribute.

The calendar contest started in 2016 (2017 calendar). We hadn't seen a most of the places on it. Took our first big trip in 2017 and two more in 2018 and 2021. Now when we look at the calendars we see places that we HAVE been.




Life is good.

I won't make it in the calendar this year but man, what a great calendar it's going to be. Imagine a calendar when the guy who owns the site doesn't get in, and the guy that creates the calendar doesn't make the cut either. So many great photos and so many great photos that didn't make the cut.

The game was certainly stepped up this year. Can't wait for next year.

You would think that those attributes would be worth something wouldn't you? Here I thought I had some decent entries this year.

Thanks to everyone who participated and voted this year. I know the voting page is buggy and caused some issues with the forum. Thanks for the patience with that. We'll be looking into fixing that hopefully before next year's contest.
