Hello,
the current IOTD submitters, reviewer, and judges have been in office for about a year now, and it's time for a refresh, so that:

- we may get some new perspectives,
- the current groups may be relieved from the burden
- other eager volunteers may help!

If you don't know what the "submitters, reviewers, and judges" are, please first read this.

So we need:

  • 30/30 submitters
  • 15/15 reviewers
  • 7/7 judges
PLEASE REPLY BELOW FOR WHICH GROUP YOU WOULD LIKE TO VOLUNTEER, AND I WILL KEEP AN UP-TO-DATE LIST OF VOLUNTEERS IN THIS TOP POST.

*** APPLICATION DEADLINE January 31st 2019 ***
Current submitters, reviewers, and judges may volunteer as well.

Thank you in advance!

Hi, Salvatore.  I've been a submitter this past year and in spite of my enthusiasm going in, I didn't enjoy the experience.  Please remove me from the list of submitters and make room for someone else.

I found the process took far longer than the 5-15 minutes I thought it would take in order to appease those who complained that poor choices were being made and that better images were overlooked.  It takes far longer to look at the full image for context and then zoom in to examine the corners and every square inch to make sure there were no "anomalies" than I wanted to put into the process.  I went in thinking IOD was just for fun, but it appears there are enough others that really take it seriously.

Thanks for letting me participate, though, and I still feel this is the best AstroImaging site!!

It may be better to remove images from the list that have already been selected by other submitters.
That would make it easier for the submitters.

I'd be happy to continue as a reviewer or move to being a judge on the off chance that not enough people volunteer.

Hello Salvatore,

I would like to continue being a reviewer unless you like to freshen up the team for fairness purposes.

Cheers!

I don’t mind carrying on in my present role of reviewer.  Equally, I don’t mind stepping aside if someone else wants to do it.

Prior to declaring my continued involvement - Can we please have clarification on the following - Are judges/submitters/reviewers images acceptable for consideration for IOTD?
Cheers

As far as I can tell, submitters and reviewers images have been eligible.  I see no reason why judges images should not also be eligible.

With respect, disagree and I sorry must say so, but no.

I have other hobby, grow bonsai, and oddly enough have  this  a competitive thing. Rules are can be judge or can compete, in some years I have winner but judge, so no. Sorry.

Frankly is strange to me this issue at all, if this competition then go for it, but not as a judge of 1/7.

Sorry if sound harsh, but this seem quite a simple decision.

It doesn’t sound harsh, Sigga.  I can see both points of view.  I am not sure how the IOTDs are chosen.  Is it one pick or by a ‘committee’?  If one pick, then I didn’t see an issue since a judge couldn’t choose his or her own image.
