    Why not all images are clickable?
    Why are some images not in one column?

    Thank you for setting up the voting Apoc. It was easy to do once I could decide which four I should vote for. I find this always the most difficult part. There are so good entries, cool ideas and nicely presented.

  • Dan WhitesideDan Whiteside Posts: 297

    Voted - no problems and very easy (other then deciding). Many thanks to Apoc for setting this up.

    These competitions get more difficult every time: I suppose it's due to the fact that we're all getting better at Bryce, and attracting new people to embrace it.

    Also, this isnt a big deal, and I dont want people to think that I am trying to force something XD. But allow me to clarify a problem I have with setting up the voting thread.

    Often times, when people create there renders, they sometimes give it long titles. I would like to add these titles, since I believe the title adds alot of depth to the picture, but it messes up the formatting and creates this non-uniformed structure. It also causes the voting poll to extend the questions into differnt rows where it shouldnt.

    This is also why for a few of the voting threads, we had the long vertical list of choices ( it was done, so that we could add the title much easier ). However since people have told me they prefer this style , I can try adding titles to the intial viewing thread ( here ), And just have some of the names cut off if they're too long. Is that ok with you guys?.

    Difficult to chose, voted Thanks Apoc smiley

  • HansmarHansmar Posts: 1,131

    Voted. The actual voting part is indeed much easier than to chose.

    Thanks so much Apoc. I do agree, that it would definitely help to have titles with the works. How would one understand, e.g. that number 9 is 'dancing with the vampire'? OK the guy looks a bit scary, but it helps to know it is a vampire.

  • HoroHoro Posts: 5,791

    I definitely agree that titles would help - not mandatory but helpful.

  • JamahoneyJamahoney Posts: 1,391

    Apoc, while the titles in the initial competition are useful for viewers, cutting them short wouldn't bother me at all in your setup: e.g. if someone has a title like "Yellow car on the road", then cutting it down to, say, "Yellow car..." would still give viewers an idea. Perhaps, we submitters of renders should be aware of our title lengths in future competitions.

    Yes I agree, my only issue with that is a personal one. As I would feel bad being the one choosing how a title is displayed.

    For example, you could have a contest about : "Realationships"
    And the title being something like :  "Super galatic international  Spiral wave of doom"
    if I cut it down to just say "Super gal.." it would 100% send the wrong impression. lol

    A short title could be part of the challenge smiley

    The question will then be: how many letters should the title have? Although I do agree titles will add more meaning, but this setup is okay too. It's difficult for non-Bryce members when they are voting; as Brycers we are familiar with each others work, we comment and make suggestions along the way, so knowing the title does not add much, my 20 cents of this issue. wink

    Mermaid's suggestion - "...how many letters should the title have?" - is something that could be applied to the initial 'rules of the competition'.

    So, Apoc, how many letters, including spaces, would suit your setup (of course, the more the better for us submitters' of renders...), where Chohole could then add to the Competition Rules' notice etc., say, 'keep the title down to 25 characters (including spaces, punctuation marks like commas, and symbols)'.

    In other softwares, where I've tried to make comments/inquiries in 'feedback/problem-like' boxes; I find the character limit (usually 140-300 characters) annoying. It's a fine balance!

    Of course, this doesn't apply to your circumstances - you have so much to work with - as opposed to those financially-backed softwares who have, and can afford, a limit on character-count. I won't mention them, but let's just say, they are the ones we most frequently use.

    This is how it would look like adding titles to this thread. As you can see, it diffently runs off a bit too much

    Thanks... Apoc.

    Having worked with html in the past, I'm certain it should be able to create individual boxes that can include images with text enclosed. It's been a long time now since I used html (moved on to other code), but the above problem can easily be simplified through your expertise, I'm sure. Sincere thanks for all your efforts and time.

    how much more time would it take to do the thread like I used to?     Like this

    Chohole: me thinks the issue here is about how to present the works/renders to the viewer. The old thread forced one to scroll down/scroll up numerous works rendered countless of times - sometimes forgetting the choice.

    With Apoc's current presentation: one can see the thumbnail versions immediately, choose 1,2,3,4 etc., DONE!

    The current issue, I think, is the title-length affecting the presentation of the thumbnail (linkable) images:

    Basically the same time. Its no effort at all to create the thread.
    In fact, thats exactly the format I used for the previous contest polls
    https://www.daz3d.com/forums/discussion/228766/27-render-challenge-poll/p1

     

    Both have there merits, and both have there flaws. Its only a matter of which one the community prefers. I would also like to state more clearly. I have no issue what-so-ever creating any format. I only wanted to elaborate on why sometimes the titles were ommited, that is all smiley
