I've stayed away from discussing the comp format as it's all been said before - and many times at that. I do agree with Roelio, however, in that it really doesn't matter what you do to the rules - pure statistics will always bite you you in the bum when there are so few participants.

So ... back to the most immediate problem: is there anyone out there that wants to put their hand up and say "I'll give it a go"?? If nobody steps up, then in two weeks time it'll be all over.

Whoever takes over would have a completely open brief (we have nothing to lose) - and both Doug and I would be quite happy to give as much help as necessary.

Anyone?

Seems to be a few more entries this time around... I’d be up for running it but I’ve only got mobile internet here. Just started a new job in the middle of nowhere (details to come)

"It's not over until the fat lady sings" (or how to annoy both size-ists and feminists)!

Charl has sponsored a One-off Special for a September Screencomp.

Many thanks, Charl!

I've been approached and been made aware of the vacancy, as kind as that gesture was I'm simply not involved enough ad can't promise I'd give the role the attention it deserves. I've not had any form of sim installed for quite some time, am unlikely to in the future, and visit the forum maybe twice a year just to see what's happening with new aircraft add-ons.

opefully the September Screenshot Spectacular gives the comp the shot in the arm it needs B-)

I think what the comp needs is regular promotion.

Strike a deal with FSElite or another reputable and consistent news source (Froogle comes to mind but would probably need a bit of arm twisting) where they do a post or two each month bringing attention to the comp and the prize available.

The next big thing I think is to have the actual developers of that month's prize promote the comp on their social media or newsletter!

If that's not enough to draw new people in, the next thing I believe that needs consideration is the concept around a theme. Although interesting, the theme can be quite restrictive and challenging to fulfill. ORBX keeps it pretty simple in that the screenshot must be within/of an ORBX product, pretty straightforward for a majority of simmers.

Personally, as a young simmer things have been fairly busy of recent. I have gradually gone from very little to no work, to working most days in a week. It does leave the weekends free but having spent most of the week inside it is nice to enjoy a bit of nature!

Well ... that's it, folks ... the fat lady has sung. Sadly, August 2018 was the last comp I was organising.

We have one month to sort things out while Charl's September Special runs. After that, if no-one volunteers, it'll be well and truly "game over".

It really is to late to discuss rules at this stage. Much of it has been said many times before, in any case. We really need someone to step up and *do* the thing, or that will be the end of the comp ... after 12 years.

Both Doug and I would be more than happy to help out any budding admins.

Well you did a fine job.. I've seen a few SS comps and the NZFF one is one of the slickest around.
So thanks to the selfless ones over the years who organised it all.

RW intrudes so I will assemble something by next week, and with the Outgoing SS Manager's kind assistance, will set up the Almost All of September Screenshot Competition.
