Now, did you pick David as the winner as he promised to get the drinks in ?

Ha ha! Hadn't even seen that, but seeing as he said so...

A good point but Durham is a very long way to go for a free drink

I was looking back at some of the previous competitions and wondered where competitions prior to No 58 were

When we start a new competition, are the others falling off the end?

They're mostly in this Competitions part of the forum, except the first two or three that are in the General Digital Photography chat part.

No. 54 was the last one we had hosted here, 55 onwards were in the new competition gallery, so a bug report will be on its way to the PU team in a minute!

I though I had missed something, glad I hadn't! It was actually number 55 I was looking for!

When I was picking the winner, I was thinking "Did he win the last one I set?" Tried to put that out of my mind though, that shouldn't make a difference.

Just had a look at the last few weeks competition results! He was definitely due a win, wasn't he! Always the bridesmaid - well now he's the bride.

Just got in and read the result. Thanks Daniel, I honestly didn't expect to win because I thought some of the entries were real good, but this seems to be how it works now. I pick you as winner, then you pick me and then I pick you.... We've got this sown up!!!
As for the drinks... sorry, can't encourage drink driving but if anyone's in Durham any time get in touch.
As for now, a new subject will be posted very soon.

No Daniel, you didn't pick me as winner last time. Bob and his Pentax gave me the poison chalice that time.

I think the back-slashes in the title for the new competition are messing with the automatic generation of the URL, and it then creates a dead link.

I'll send a bug report.
