BP scores

Just wondering a couple of things -- what does the score given on my profile mean - that is, how is it determined?

Also, what is the difference between an Editor's Pick and a Staff Favorite in the monthly contest?

  I've wondered about our "Score" as well, hopefully someone has insight!

As far as Staff Favorite vs Finalist, I believe it's just stages of judging.
Staff Favorites come out before Finalists (and Finalists before winners). I have had images which received SF later get Finalist, but not sure if that's always the case. Hope that helps...

  First elimination round is Editor's Picks. From those, the Staff Favorites are chosen and from the Staff Favorites, the Finalists. From the Finalists the Winners are chosen. I believe activity such as giving love (clicking on the hearts) and comments on entries adds to the score, but I don't know where the info is on how that works. Hopefully someone else can explain that. Also, Susan, there is a new forum available which works faster. You can locate it at

  I think it's the right choice when you're starting out retro bowl 2
