    I didn't vote because I never had time to look at all the entries properly.

    Maybe I'm going about it wrong and someone can put me straight but it is a real clickathon trying to see all the fullsize versions.

    Now we can link images in a thread couldn't we have a thread with all the full size entries? I have enough ntl webspace left I just don't have the time. Any volunteers or better suggestions?

    Zones page is an improvement but the thumbnails just take you to the article .. you then have to scroll down and click the attachment. Open windows close windows back to zones thumbnail page - it takes ages to view them all properly. I can't judge on thumnails.

    As to my non entry - I've been looking at signs all month and every one was boring.

    I liked the seagull and i liked the rotting round road sign, but as I never saw all the entries I did not vote.

    Robert, I originally had the thumbnails linking to the fullsize shots but Steve wanted them to link to the article instead, its easy enough either way, a bit more work on my side and I suppose I could have them dual linking, thumbnail picture to full size, entrants name to the article, just a thought.

    I went to look but must admit it wasn't immediately obvious where to vote. Maybe it's me been thick but a quick post in this section when it's voting time with a direct link to the voting page would make things a little easier for the clueless ones like me.

    When i first set the poll up at the very start of the competition I tried to link to the full size pictures but the url needed was too long and so was rejected by the forum software, thus i now link to the article concerned.

    Zone's page is extremely helpful in making the initial decision on what to look at more closely. For me, I tend to look at each entry as it comes in and have a shortlist from that, I have never just looked at all of the pics on the voting day.

    The complication is that the pictures have explanations to show how they fit the theme. (something I don't agree with but thats been discussed already)

    A locked 'viewing' thread here (so no comments get added) with all the entrants text and the full size pictures visible for all entries,together with a link to the voting page,would be ideal.
