  9/9..Catch All..Back In The Day
That makes 5 for September, and the same for August..I really feel cheated in the August picks. Anybody can see there was some pretty good (for me) stuff left out and some not so good put in. I'm totally confused. Who the heck is picking these (August) EPs?? Not exactly what you would expect with somebody "looking at each and every photo" is it?

  I am curious is to wonder if "Everyone" is feeling the pinch of not getting EP's like they used to or is it that the usual Winners are still getting EP's like before and the rest of us are getting skipped..

Just curious and I am not here to offend anyone nor do I want angry emails, I am just wondering if BP is playing fair and cutting back EP's for "Everyone"

  I'm really heartbroken, I have finally improved on some of my photo's and was grateful to have EP's, didn't need finalist or winner... Just to know they thought the photo was good enough to get past that first round made me proud as a peacock, now I am beginning to think I am getting nowhere....

  Is BP so eager to get on with October, that they have left a good part of August and September behind? Only 4 for September and I have only skipped one or two days. Major Bummer!! I thought they were on a roll for a while-seems NOT.

  Just got one yesterday for August 3, if you can believe that...but September might as well not be happening. My wishful thinking cap stopped working at least a month ago. Best I can say is I don't even bother trying anymore - I just upload whatever turns ME on (which I always did anyway, but quality used to matter as well).

  Having not entered anything since 9/21 I see that my ambition to enter is directly affected by the response time they take in reviewing our images. It used to be so much more fun here getting that instant gratification or at least some sort of acknowledgement that they passed it by because others got EPs all ready. Now you never know where your image stands. A month later I dont even know what catagory I entered them in. lol . I kind of wonder who is filling out these surveys they send and if they are in fact as positive as they say. I see they are actually runnng again the 2 for 1 sale. At this point in th egame I wouldn't even purchase a 10 to 1.

  This is really sad, everyone. A multitude of concerns from members with everyone feeling deflated due to lack of EP's. As far as I'm concerned, this is jeopardizing my interest in continuing on as a member as I really enjoyed the fun of encouragement from other members and the contest with of course the EP's. I sent a note in two days ago but don't have a response yet. Will let you know if I do hear something...

  With so many members that participate on the EFP threads over the past six months threatening not to renew, it will be interesting to see 1]if that's true; 2] if enough people don't renew (even on the 2-fer; and 3] if a lack of renewals would have a big enough impact that the old ways will return.

  I think they don't believe anybody will actually not renew. I also think they have pretty good reason to believe that.
I've seen quite a few threaten and nobody follow through, so it's kind of a threat that never materializes. Nobody wants to leave the social aspects of the site. We all have good friends here and that means a lot.

  Sometimes I get the feeling they are trying to phase out the galleries in favor of the more expensive websites? I have gotten several emails about the 2 for 1's on them, but no word on the same deal for the galleries...I have friends who have not renewed and won't renew unless the 2 for 1 comes back...Most of the women I shoot with hardly participate here anymore which is a shame as we used to be able to share photos from our adventures together. I guess nothing great lasts forever...

  That thought also had occurred to me, Jill - but then I remembered that in the past the 2-Fer for the Pros offers normally didn't come at the same time as the Basic renewal offers. The latter usually came in the Spring (just about the same time as my account would be expiring soon anyway.) I rarely paid attention and simply took advantage of the sales which pretty much explains why my subscription doesn't expire until April 2015.

Patricia Buenting   My answer to your question: I also saw the 2 for 1 add. I had been considering getting the website for awhile and had decided to do so. I have been waiting to see if this management had changed any but realized it was the same old-same old. I went with Smugmug. They have a good site for $60 per year and have been very helpful in setting mine up. It was $70 cheaper and a lot better response from the site. I was afraid to invest $199 for a site here since things have changed so drastically. Since the contest is now for free I am sorry I paid for 2 years.

  Patricia B. I have had my website with them since 2003 and for the most part love dealing with them. They are on top of things and will answer any questions immediately about how to set things up etc. I am not a techie, so many times if I ask nicely they will actually just fix things for me rather then try and explain how to do it :-)I am a bit overwhelmed with the new changes they are making, but have awhile yet before I have to switch to the new look.
I started out paying 59.00 for the pro level which went up over the years but not much. Recently I decided that since I was not using them to sell stuff to just go to the lower level for about 1/2 the cost.

  It was kind of weird, I wasn't even home when it happened. When I got home there were a bunch of bounced back emails I supposedly sent from the Jacquie Lawson website. I haven't sent anything from there for about 6 months.
Maybe it was them that got hacked. Nothing else went through and there have been no more. It's got me confused. I did get to keep my email address also..so far. LOL

  Carolyn: I got a warning from Adobe this morning that my adobe ID may have been comprimized; that Adobe's password system had been hacked and that I should change my password, and all other sites that I have used it on. Could be what happened to you. Think of how many Adobe customers there are-whew. I also got a strange message last week on my cell phone, that I had been hacked, so I think all this is coming from the same place. I have my phone mirroring what I get on my computer. What a mess!

  Nancy Marie, Amy Weiss wrote that Adobe PS Cloud users had been hacked so badly that all their passwords and financial info was compromised. It's serious enough that she had to order a new debit card etc. It's totally different (at least from earlier FB experiences) than what Carolyn is experiencing.

I'm still using an old "borrowed" Photoshop 7.

  It is the ugly side of business. Most photos are not even being looked at. Saves the sight money not to have to judge by looking at the photo's everyday.
They are playing it smart to by not caring about or addressing the concerns of its customers because they know that most of us will renew anyway. If you contact them they will not respond.
BP is in the position where it is making good money and it can at the same time ignore its customers. Most businesses could not survive doing that, but BP can because its customers enjoy the social and sharing part of BP.
The only thing we can do is enjoy our photography, encourage each other, never judge your work by the judges who usually don't even see your work. Do what you love to do. Don't let BP and its staff destroy your love for seeing the beauty in the world. Support each other, encourage one another, cherish the friendships.

  Mine may well have been an Adobe thing. I didn't think I had a password over there, but I must have got one when I registered my Elements 9..I got an email from Adobe saying they had changed it, and I could change it again by hanging from the ceiling by a spiderweb and licking my keyboard, or something about as NOT easy. I have no use for Adobe online, so I just left it at whatever they changed it to.

  I'm not a cloud user, but I did get the same email yesterday from Adobe about my password needing to be re-set. I'm not that fond of spiderwebs so I think I'll pass as well! I had been debating the CS6 upgrade before it all goes to the cloud at the end of the year. Now I think NOT. Interesting that I heard from Adobe days after Kathy reported the issue here.

  My last EP was around Sept. 7; zero since. Doubt the contest will disappear, but rather is being seriously de-emphasized/discouraged in an effort to refocus on why the site was started (classes and, to a lesser degree, upscale galleries). Only thing I'm SURE of, though, is that the quality of our photos has not taken a nosedive all of a sudden.

  Seems like the pattern has been that close to the end of the month, they finish up the EPs from the prior month (usually from mid month on). At this point they have stopped EPs on the current month (again, getting thru about half the month). Then they announce SFs, Finalists then Winners. What's even more odd is that, instead of starting back up where they left off in mid month, they instead start on EPs for the new month. Mid month they'll stop the current month EPs and go back to finish the prior month. Rinse, repeat...

I can't figure out what benefit they would get from doing it this way but there either is one or the new software won't let them do things the old way. I miss the old way, the pace and the involvement. It was more lively and more fun. Honestly, that made it more addictive too...lol!

  You know, I have been wondering if maybe they might be short on judges, down sizing ect... And if they are that might be the reason they are slow to get everything done? Might they contact members of Betterphoto who have really great photography skills to start EP'S, Then those judges that are left give out the finalists and winners?? Just an idea....

  The last EP I've seen was from the 13th...maybe the 14th, on this thread. There's still 16 days to go, so just keep checking the September EP forum and don't be discouraged if you haven't gotten any EPs on photos submitted after 14 Sept. None of us have gotten EPs.

BP may continue to hand out EPs for October. They've had multiple months going simultaneously for the last several months. It's their new "Ops Normal." They'll finish up September soon enough.

If BP does it like the last two months, there will be an increase in September EPs over the next 10 days or so.

  There were a whole slew of notifications in my email this morning. Are the Finalists on the pictures involved for August or for September?

Sometimes, people see the awards (which show no dates) way after the fact and comment. But, then I can't figure out if the award is new or old.

  You should be able to look back through the comments and see when the first congratulatory messages came through. I've done that before - doesn't take a minute. I'm sure these were August. They haven't even finished EPs for September. That said, I just looked in the place where they post the finalists on the main page and it looks as if they have re-posted the August Finalists but called them September Finalists. They had mis-named the August Winners (and maybe Finalists - the Winners are still mis-named) and called them September. But there were no August Winners in the list. I wrote them about this some time ago - I'm thinking others may have, too. Maybe whoever is trying to correct the mistake is confused :)

  That's usually how I do it too, Nikki. I had forgotten that somebody had mentioned a glitch (was getting ready for, and taking a trip so didn't keep up with things.) That could be why I feel so off-kilter. Thanks to you and Carolyn for the explanation.

Autumn Reflections

Then I forgot to enter for three days straight which I NEVER do - but not having anything to check in for has gotten me kind of out of the BP habit. Skipped 9/26 and 9/27 and those do surprise me, especially 9.27 as it's one with three member favorites which I rarely get; nothing yet for the rest of the month.

  I had a pretty good month. Seems better with fewer photos entered. 8 of 10 got EPs with 3 Staff Favs. However, what blows the theory of them taking into consideration the number of Favs out of the water is that I had 19 favs on one shot but it didn't even get a Staff Fav! Go figure. Rush job on their part I think.
