    More than joining 3 pics together :) (sorry - poor quality as don't have the original anymore)

    Can we go back to the specifications for this challenge? It's not about words to introduce the photo, it's about the subject of the photo.

    From the first post of The Never Ending Alphabet Game Challenge! thread:

    @JAG said:
    This will be a never ending game challenge! The challenge is for you to post one of your images that the subject matter starts with the next letter of the alphabet!

    Thanks!

    I've been away for a few days. After reviewing what has been posted since the last time I came in, I agree with Denise's assessment that indeed, there are several posts that have pushed the limit of the rules of the game. Please stick to the rules of the game. Thanks!

  • Jørgen_BjerringJørgen_Bjerring Copenhagen, DenmarkPosts: 2,358Registered Users Many Grins

    I will try to stick to the rules. But then I have to ask: How strict shall you stick? Can you call a parasol an umbrella to get a "u" :) :) :)

    Given that I've never before seen the word "parasol" I would say that's a use of language difference. If you think my entries are wrong please let me know!

  • Jørgen_BjerringJørgen_Bjerring Copenhagen, DenmarkPosts: 2,358Registered Users Many Grins

    When I wrote about your parasols/umbrellas I mostly had the name/title of this site in mind :#. Apart from that a Dane would never call a parasol "umbrella". In Danish we have two "para-words" - parasol and paraply = sunshield and rainshield. Para = shield - sol = sun in Danish - ply is derived from plui = rain in French. When I make a search on "parasol" on amazon.com I can see, that parasol and umbrella are very much mixed together in English. That's it. :)

    Just back from a week vacation and I'm sorry, but I'm pretty sure I pressed refresh after the "Kick" at the bottom of page 263 and no page 264 showed up at that time :s

    Somehow this forum software does very quirky things :/

    Btw, I think the same happened to Tatiana, when she posted her "Golden onion" on page 270 :#

    Should we post a bug report or can one of the mods further investigate this matter?

    I wondered where you were!

    I think I've seen previous discussions on timing issues, not sure what came of it. I guess we just need to jump to the next letter in sequence and ignore the misplaced entries, not sure what else can be done.

    The timing and refreshing thing has been discussed. The only thing you need to remember is when you refresh and it happens that someone has posted and it went to a new page, you need to look at your page numbers at the bottom of the page to be sure your on the newest page. It will only refresh on the page you were last on.

    I think there will be language differences that can be overlooked. It's the ongoing sentences and description words used as representative of a letter (such as U is for Under the table) verses an object in the photo actually starting with u. I know it gets tough to find pictures, especially the harder letters, that fit, but the challenge is to try not to post repeats and hopefully, if one person doesn't have an image, someone else will.

    To me the problem is not connected to find photos, but to find new words. I have many zebra and zoo photos, but from my point of view it's not very satisfying or funny to use zebra or zoo whenever I am facing z.

    Joyce, I'm very sure I looked at the page numbers at the bottom after the refresh and page # 264 didn't show at the end of the row of page numbers at that time.
    I know because already for some time I've made it my custom to refresh and look at the page number at the bottom every time before I make a new post, and this time it just didn't work as expected.

    I think it's hard to reproduce, and therefore hard to trouble-shoot, but when it happens again I'll report on it back here.

    Thank you very much. The photo is from South-Africa. The bird life there is amazing. Compared to Denmark there is a great number of colorful birds - many with that impressing "metallic" look. One of my favourites was this in some way peculiar looking bird named Crested Barbet:
