Comments & Votes Round 23

Posted by: Bedros Awak on 09/27/2012 - 3:42 AM

Comments & Votes Round 23

Start time: Thur.Sep.27.2012 12:00am (Pacific Time)
End Time: Mon.Oct.01.2012 6:00pm (Pacific Time)

Check the time zone here:

Please read and follow ALL the steps (These guidelines are permanent in every round)

New Members: This is your first round of C&V, it's very important you complete it all to guarantee your artwork be considered in the next round, if you missed, skipped links, or didn't complete this round you'll be disqualified for the next round.

1.Click every link below and leave your comments and votes, you MUST complete them all! (Don't forget to vote!!! and don't skip any!!!)
2.If you can't see your image link below that means you didn't complete the previous round of C&V.
3.For members who didn't participate in previous round(s) and skip it for any reason, they have the chance to be back again, if they complete C&V for all the links below, then their artwork will be definitely considered in the next round, guaranteed!
4.If you already left comment & voted for any of the links below, please do you best and visit that artist gallery and chose another art and leaver your C&V instead.
5.After completing all the links below please post a note in the discussion board here, under topic "Comments & Votes Round 23", this is very important step for me to know that you're done, and helps me cut back lots of time by following each member to see if he/she completed the round or not.Because most of the times I rely on your statement of completion, chances are if you completed the round and didn't leave a note, I might miss that and your artwork might not be considered in the next round, and I don't want to have issues.
6.To ensure everyone gets fair treatment and receive C&V without missing a link, please report to me by e-mail if you see any member who posts a note of completing the round but didn't visit your link, I really encourage you to do this, it's your right to get promoted in proper manner and reduce my time of following the members to check their status.

**For members who have completed round 22 but didn't submit artwork for any reason, I picked an image from their gallery.

**If you see a broken link please be advised that's happened after a member submitted the image but changed the title or corrected spelling, and the link became nonfunctional. so be careful NOT to change anything after submitting the link, if the link is dead I WILL NOT FIX IT, it's so much headache and time consuming, you are responoisible for your act, that's been said!!

Now here are the links for this round, starting from the first member joined to the last.
I divided the links into 6 groups to be easy to follow.







This is it..59 links to have fun commenting and voting,+ social network promoting for the next five days.

Good luck to all

Bedros Awak

Thanks Donna for the link for Doris, the other link was dead.

Yep yep yep... Me too. On that rainy day, it was the perfect time to finish that wonderful round 23...

I had few little issues with the vote in the two first group... After I was done with all the 59 artworks, went back to ones with issues, and my votes got accepted.

Y'all have amazing artwork guys! It was a great round, really interesting with variety and really inspiring to create more myself.

Thanks so much Bedros for this wonderful round.
You are doing an amazing job!

I am getting a dead link here. Does anyone have the correct one? I tried to look but could not find anything similar on her pages - perhaps I missed it

Posted by: Sharon Mick on 10/02/2012 - 11:04 AM

Finished R23


Posted by: Anne Lacy on 10/02/2012 - 1:13 PM

When I first went through the rounds (I completed on 9/28). mb matthews link worked, I recall the image because I really like it and think it is a beautiful image!!.

Isn't it possible to make a change (or download a whole new image...) and lose your votes and comments? I went back today and voted/fav'd the new image...


Posted by: Roxanne Weber on 10/02/2012 - 4:10 PM

I'm a bit late, but I have also completed R23

Went through again carfully and checked on all the working links. I also voted again for all the ones i visited again.

thanks for Doris's did a couble check and had been there already too.


Posted by: Susan Lee Clark on 10/04/2012 - 12:17 AM

Went through again and "revoted" on all. TWO (2) of them accepted my votes. At first I thought my computer or FAA must have messed up, but by the time I got to the end of the list, I had to recheck my checks as I was so tired I couldn't remember if I voted on the last one. I think rechecking only takes a small amount of time, and I probably will "revote" on every round until I start coming up with all correct for a few rounds!

Hope that makes up your deficient!

I recommented on the items accepting my vote, so they at least will know I had made a mistake the first round.

Some links have been broken.

round 23 finished, voted, commented - the whole nine yards, good material, fun round


Posted by: Jeanne Ward on 10/04/2012 - 5:04 PM

Round 23 is doooone!


Posted by: Anita Antonia Nowack on 10/05/2012 - 6:37 PM

Round 23 - done! The thing is I also commented Done on my own image being the last in Round 23. Still groping as a newcomer - my apologies...


Posted by: Randy Rosenberger on 10/05/2012 - 8:34 PM

The only thing I have a question on in this round, and in any others, is if two links aren't available and we did all the others, and time is about up, technically we did finish, as it is not our fault that two were not available at the time we were voting or commenting, and we do have many other responsibilities with other groups, including our own. How do we know if someone fixed their link or not, or why it didn't come up when we were voting or faving?

It is hard to find time to keep checking back on a couple who did not get theirs recognized due to a glitch somewhere along the line. Just asking, not complaining!

Time is of the essence when running a group, and belonging to other groups, and all having their expectations, and just wondering how the rest of you deal with this, and if you do go BACK in, when time is about to expire, and recheck and vote or comment on one's missing earlier.

As, if you do it that way, I will too, but like I said, time is not always on our side, and while I respect the rules, they are hard to follow, sometimes, when things just aren't the way they are supposed to be, at the time, they are supposed to be there.


Posted by: Barbara McNeil on 10/05/2012 - 10:25 PM

i went through round 23 again and checked all my votes and comments days I hit Sherry's link and it shows I didnt vote or comment............I would have sworn also on a stack of bibles I didnt miss any and it doesnt show a comment from me I wonder if there was a problem with his link, as some have suggested as they had problems, and I did another........


Posted by: Barbara McNeil on 10/05/2012 - 10:29 PM

by the way it was Sherry's link for matthew's it works......Darlene Stry has the broken link for him.......not sure this is a case of blowing though too quickly


Posted by: Lj Lambert on 10/05/2012 - 10:46 PM

I am new and feel like I must have missed something along the way. Wasn't this round over on OCT. 1? Can I still do it? I was going to wait to start on round 24 but I don't see anything.

Posted by: Marianne Campolongo on 10/07/2012 - 6:59 PM

Done :)

It's 6:54 PM NY time - so 3:54 pm in California - got in just under the wire!

I didn't have a photo in here and had done some - including the last 9 - last week. Of those I did today, assuming I may be the last one to finish, I was vote #53-59 on a few of them and noted those when that was the case. I was also vote 99 on one and vote 101 on Randy Rosenberger's so congrats on surpassing 100 votes Randy!

There were three photos/paintings with broken links.

Glad to have the extra time so I could finish up - some wonderful work and a lot of new people whose work I haven't seen before.

Looking forward to round 24!
