All contestants, please look at How the scores work ! This explains what the differents rounds are, and how the scores are calculated.
Expert Picks for the Picture Round
The scores of the very first round, "Picture Round" will be out by Thursday afternoon EST.
As a prelude to the round, wongqks ,former Poster of the Month,who has won most of the rounds he participated in, and probably knows what the judges are looking for, will give his commentary on whom to expect to score highly in the Picture Round.
He will "review" each picture, and given it a rating out of 4, with a brief comment for each picture. These do NOT count as scores, but could give us an idea about what to expect in the Picture Round, the day after tommorow.He will also give his top 5 for the Picture Round.
So look for the 'expert picks' tommorow, Wednesday afternoon EST!
In order to keep the suspense and excitement alive to myself, I have decided to check the scores myself just a few seconds before I post the averages. So I basically will find out the scores with you guys.
wow it seems to be exciting!
good luck to everyone!
Most career titles (singles+doubles):Navratilova
Most Wimbledon singles titles: Navratilova
Most Wimbledon singles and doubles titles: Navratilova
Most WTA Tour Championship singles titles: Navratilova
Most WTA Tour Championship doubles titles: Navratilova
Ok the judges have sent in their scores. I dont know yet, how each of you have done (and I dont intend to check until Thursday, along with you) , but I wish you all the best of luck! Let's see who they've chosen.
Wongqks's picks should be posted at around 12:30 PM EST Wednesday.
I'd like to thank former POM, wongqks for taking time to review this pictures. All these ratings are given out of a maximum possible of 4 (* * * * ). If you've recieved a low rating, please don't get disillusioned, as wongqks seems tough to please And remember, these ratings have NO effect on the actual scores that will be posted tommorow. These is just to give you an idea who we could possibly, expect to do well. The last time this was tried in POM 4th Edition (which was won by none other than our commentator wongqks), the picks of the commentator, and myself went completely wrong Nevertheless, without further adieu, here are his comments
I'd like to state, that for the sake of fairness, but the judges, and wongqks, saw the entries NUMBERED and not with your names
An ‘ok’ choice, but not so much in originality
* * 1/2
Original, but may not convey too much to the judges.
Ok choice. Could be more original
* * 1/2
One of the better ones
* * *
Funny pic. Good choice
The choice is ok, but does not relate to anything
I’ve seen it a million times, too unoriginal
* * *
A touching portrait, one of the better entries
Does not relate to me in anyway.
* * * 1/2
Good choice, the best of the round
This is an ok choice. Fair in originality.
* * 1/2
Good picture which captures expressions nicely
This entry is just about ok.
