[color=green]Well as we all know, the potds have gotten bad lately. now this may be just because there are no quality pics comeing in or because someone is doing a poor job. eather way we as users (and cronic complainers :lol:) need to start taking good pics or bcfiles needs a new potd poster. [/color] [color=green]I envite the current bcfiles podt front man to step up and explain the current events surrounding this topic, and also request that if he does no one replying in this forum flames him in anyway.[/color]

Hmm... This kind of thread seems vaguely familiar... :lol: Oh, well. I hope it does more good than mine did. I'm still looking to occupy the position. I know for a fact that there are better pics in there. Especially one's of Connies. I recreated the first encounter between the Reliant and the Enterprise and it was of really good quality. Why not pic that??

i agree, my pic prolly wasnt the best of the lot. there needs to be somethin done about the latest pics. i think we should give the responsibility to a random user/committee per week. that may be tough but i think it would be fairer.

Yes yes... The PotD are became bad in the last few days. Just boring. I hope there will be some high quality shots in the near future without stock explosions, game console, and/or stock starfield. Let's hope the best. So be cool.

Ps: Babylon 5 is very good. Just StarTrek ships are boring, too. Having a B5 ship is a seasonable sake of variety. => There are just 3 B5 ships and I have seen not much pics with B5 ships.

I have to agree i think any ships should be allowed, as long as there not copy and pasted in, i think that kinda ruins the pics, i mean come on! the point of the POTD is to have good pics of the the real in-game bridge commander, not one that had stuff added in later. the POTD should have only high quality, unedited, 100% in-game pics. and some of the ones picked latley have been of low quality, and i know there has to be alot more high quality pics to chose from. so i agree with Captian Gantu, i don't like any kind of editing.

I know for a fact that there are better ones in there that have at least some effort in them. The attached pic is one that I submitted back in December or something, so there're no worries about it getting posted now. It's not too good, but I've been submitting some higher quality ones than this to try and get some attention. I would post something more recent, but I don't wanna risk (heaven forbid) one of mine ever gets posted again. It had a caption that was similar to "Scanning weapons signature... Sir, it was the Borg."

Update: I can't upload it because Gaming Forums won't let me delete any of my old attachments and I'm over their new quota system. So, here's a link to it on my own server.

http://www.100megsfree3.com/sabrewings/Borg%20evidence.jpg

(you may need to copy and paste it into you address bar, I'm not sure because of how that server works. and, replace the sabrewi... with sabrewings/Borg . i dunno why it did that. if nothing else, when you click it the full address is now in the window's address bar, and you can copy that into a new window. it's all weird.)
