Hello,

I decided to create a new thread to add some more structure then the existing one (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=336813). As you probably know there are some community challenges in Forza 4. Most of them are quite easy, bot those two can be quite hard if you don't have a lot of friends playing this game. For the first one a photo you uploaded to your store front must have 100 views, for the second one you have to get at least 4 stars with at least 10 votes.

The idea of this thread is boosting those challenges. Just write down your gamertag and the picture you want to have viewed and rated and I will add you to the list below. Everyone who would like to join us should view and vote at least some of the players on the list. As soon as you got those two challenges, please let me know, so I could remove you from the list to improve boosting for the others. I will add new requests at the end of the list, as soon as anyone in front of you got both challenges you will work your way up and get more attention. This should be fair to everyone..

In order to reduce the time to search for each gamer tag and photo within Forza, please add "x360a100" as description to your photo. Just enter the word into the manual keyword search field and you should be fine!

I'm on board with this idea... name's BlakeTheDrake, file is called 'Spotlight'. I'll go vote up Adria~an - but what 'bout yourself, ProXy? Don't YOU have a picture you'd like voted and viewed?

EDIT: Ah, right, I see it now... sorry, I completely overlooked the red text at the bottom of your message, figured it was your sig or something. :P I've voted yours up too.

Great idea for a thread. Hopefully people contribute and don't just post their own stuff for views and votes. It takes very little time to view and vote something so if everyone participates we can all help each other out effectively.

Photo is called audi sunset. Its the only thing is my storefront so it should be very easy to find. This is the image. Thanks!

Viewed and rated the both of you... ah, but, MagixMan, the picture I'm GUESSING you were referring to is actually called 'GM Silvia TG' - the other stuff is the description. :p

Incidentally, I wonder if the challenge for 100 views is for real... it seems like a typo. All the other challenges go 1-5-10, this one goes 1-5-100. Well, once one of us gets up to 10 views, we'll know for sure.

Well, I think I'm all caught up... but looking at my own storefront, I've only got ONE view. Y'all ARE aware that you have to click on the picture and view it full-screen before it counts as a 'View', right? It's not enough to just select and rate. You have to actually click on 'View'.

Oh, and DeFFeR - that is one HILARIOUSLY ugly car. :eek:

(Small side-note - any of you wanna exchange 100K creds over the Storefront for the '100K profit from storefront' badges? I know you can get it from selling a car in the Auction-house, but I'm a collector - I can't stand selling any of my babies... PM if you're interested so we don't clog up this thread.)

BoooDave
10-23-2011, 11:13 AM
I just checked what I've been doing, and I was definately clicking on view, waiting for it to appear full screen, then pressing A again to bring up the voting stars, voting 5, then pressing A again to close the picture. If it hasn't registered a view and/or vote, then it's either not working properly (although the views on mine are going up) or maybe it'll catch up eventually and you'll suddenly jump to a dozen views later on.


....or maybe turn10 don't like your pic and have disabled view and vote counts for it? lol

Thanks ProXy for bringing this back up, I was away for a while on arkham city. It looks like I have missed out on getting a lot of ratings so I am going to get started on rating and viewing.
Kinda sucks though I come back to thinking I wonder if I will have the badge for 10 views average 4 star and someone rated it 1 star :( so now its dropped from 5 to 3 and a half with 12 views so I wondering you guys can rate my Alps Spotlight pic and any others that you feel like that would be great but can view them all. Thanks Lets get rating.

I think you're a genius, [edited this chunk out as it was incorrect and may mislead people in to deleting picture they don't need to], I think this would make it so much easier and quicker.[edited out]

The only thing is, there are already a load of pics up with just x360a in the name, so I suggest we choose something more specific to this thread and encourage people to only upload one picture each with it in the name or description, as we're not here to stroke eachother's egos, just to get one of our pics to 100 views.

How about x360a100

I've just uploaded a pic with x360a100 in the description. [edited out]

BlackDragon
10-25-2011, 04:03 PM
Hmm... if it really DOES take 100 views, and not 10 as I'd theorized (on the hope that it might be a typo), BooDave's idea DOES sound like a good one in the long run. If everyone uploaded a picture of that name, it wouldn't take very long for us to get those up to the old levels.

For now, though, I'll go through the recent sign-ups and rate up their desired picture - I've been away for a day or so, so there's a few waiting.

EDIT: Hold your horses, everyone. I did some experimentation. When you search for 'Manual Keyword', that includes both title and description. So, yes, as long as we all put the correct keyword in the easily-edited DESCRIPTION of our preferred picture, it'll be possible to find them all with a simple keyword-search.

So there you have it - if we all just add 'x360a100' to the description of our favorite pic, anyone will be able to see them all with a single search, and that will, indubitably, speed things up a lot. I've already added it to mine.

DefEdge

1) Storefront

3) Photos
4) Over the photo you want to change
5) Change description

That is it from memory will go on later to confirm or if someone else could confirm that would be great:)

Incidentally, has it been confirmed that you need 100 UNIQUE views? Or can you go back to re-view the same image again later, and have it count?

ProXy
10-26-2011, 10:46 AM
I don't know but I guess that we must have 100 unique views. If so, we won't have success if only 30 people try to boost. It also seems that it is some kind of glitched, because it doesn't always register when someone viewed a picture.

I didn't check for the 4 stars challenge, did anyone already get this one?

BlackDragon
10-26-2011, 03:16 PM
I got the 4-stars thingie ages ago, along with the 5 Views badge. All that's left is the 100-views.

Oh, and looking at the badge-descriptions, it sounds like it does, indeed, take 100 'Uniques', since it doesn't just call for 100 Views, but 'viewed by 100 players'...

Anyway, I should be caught up now - viewed and rated everyone with x360a100 in their description, took seconds.

Viewed and rated everyone with the "x360a100" tag again, but maybe it won´t count..

It´s atleast WAY faster than manually searching gamertags, so everyone in here should add the tag.

Nice work finding out the description does work, BlackDragon. I hold my hands up and admit when I asserted it didn't work, I was just reading what the game said somewhere, however I've since noticed that it does actually say title and description in the title of the text entry box when you're searching. Doh!

I'm going to go do some testing on the unique views front. I'm going to pick one of the x360a100 tagged pictures and sit here re-viewing it repeatedly. I'll check back in the morning once the servers have had time to catch up and see how many views it's got then.

I'm going to attack BlackDragon's spotlight. It's at 20 views right now. I'll hit it the full 80 times and I'll re-view all the other tagged pics while I'm there, too. Hopefully BlackDragon will have the badge by morning.

10-27-2011, 01:25 AM
Well it only took me about 5 minutes to blitz the 80 views earlier.

I've just checked the pic and it's now on 21 views, so as far as I can see, one of three things is happening;

1) That extra view is by someone else that it's caught up with and has yet to catch up with my 80 views

2) It only registers one hit per day by any one GT, and that 1 hit is all Dragon's going to get from my 80 attempts

3) It only registers 1 hit per GT forever, so none of my 80 hits did anything and the extra hit is from someone else.


I guess we'll have to wait maybe 24 hours to be sure if we can eliminate option 1. I remain optimistic that the servers just take time to catch up and update though, as my count seems to jump 5 or 10 at a time.

I'm fairly certain that if it CAN register multiple views from the same source, it'd be a once-per-day thing, though even that seems unlikely... testing it would be a bit more difficult, but not impossible. Best way to do it is to grab some unimportant, unnoticed picture with 0 views, which nobody else is likely to be interested in, and then view it a few times over a period of 2-3 days. If it winds up with more than 1 view, then that works, and we'll be able to boost our way to 100 views relatively quickly. If not... well, we better hope that a LOT more people sign up for this. >_>;

lol - I'm going to go back in and view them all again just to see -- pretty easy once you put the tag in the description

Edit: There are only 13 of you with the x360a100 tag - so there's a few that need to add the tag. It's so much easier to grab the list of photos that way rather than going through individual GTs

BlackDragon
10-28-2011, 07:03 PM
Well, since nobody else has come forth to pick up the experiment I proposed, I'm going ahead and doing it myself. I'm currently searching for an unimportant, preferably-old, picture with 0 views, somewhere in the recesses of the Storefront system. Over the week-end, I'll View it a couple of times per day. Monday, well, I'll be able to tell if you can get more than one view from each.

Incidentally, switching to this 'search by Keyword' bit is working quite cleverly. Lots of people haven't added that keyword, though. And who are those people? Well, that would be the ones who don't bother to check back in with the thread to see who else needs help. Who figure that just having their name down at the start of the thread will ensure them a steady stream of Views with no work on their own part needed. So if they get left out of the view-rounds from new arrivals, well, I think we can live with that...

Well, I think we can live with that...Quite.

I was actually going to do just such a little experiment with the views on a 0-view pic myself, and I could have sword I posted a message to that effect. It's a good job I don't appear to have done so though, as I got distracted when gears 3 arrived in the post about 40 hours ago and I completely forgot to do anything other than play horde. When I eventually need a break from gears, I'll go have a peek at the storefont and get some views done for people. Hopefully by then you'll have good news concerning us being able to register at least 1 view per day on each picture. Once I know that's the case, I'll try to pop on most days to get some views for people.

Got my adapter to work and I found out a neat trick to tell if you have rated / viewed a photo before.

When you click a picture hit :abut: and when it goes full screen hitting :abut: will bring up the rating UI. After you have accepted it, any further times you try that it will open the photo and close it if you have rated it before making it easy to tell if you have done it to that certain photo.
Hope this helps speed things along with photos and keeping track of them.

BlackDragon
10-31-2011, 02:49 PM
I've got a few things to report...

Firstly, after 4 days and several views, the picture I picked for my experiment is still only showing 1 Views. So, unless repeat viewing requires more time (a week, a month, a year), which is very unlikely, it seems that you do, indeed, need 100 unique views for the badge. Sad, but there it is.

Second, guys who just signed up for this, you need to stay cool. It'll take a while for your view-counts to rise - most people probably don't check for new images every day, and with all the new games being released these days, many will likely be distracted from Forza by something new and shiny for a bit. So don't expect your view-count to reach full level in less than a week or so. And really, considering that we all need to get to 100, complaining that you've got 25 views instead of 35 is a bit silly.

Third... somebody with the GT 'Mark pipi' has THREE images marked as x360a100 - one of them using the image title, which can't be edited. Mark, I don't know if you frequent this thread, but you need to fix that. Stuff like that undermines our very purpose!

The badge is for getting a single photo viewed by 100 people, not all photos viewed by a combined total of 100 people, so him posting 3 pictures and getting 33+ on each isn't doing him any good.

Guess my previous post fell under TL;DR. As I said earlier, my experiment has already proven that the views need to be unique - or, at the very least, that you need a lot more space than just a day or a week between views if multiples DO count, and that's highly unlikely.

Guess my previous post fell under TL;DR. As I said earlier, my experiment has already proven that the views need to be unique - or, at the very least, that you need a lot more space than just a day or a week between views if multiples DO count, and that's highly unlikely.

So yeah, we need more troops here! :Bounce:

Sorry, it was a few pages back, I did read it, honest. (I actually had to look up TL;DR, it's been a while since I did a lot of postings in a short time like here.) It's been a busy week, and I posted that one early in the morning as I was headed out the door to go to work. The only thing I remembered was that SOMEONE was looking into it. If I had remembered that BlakeTheDrake was the one, I'd of included it...

Anyway, I have another 3 month trial gold account now. Will use it tomorrow to boost all with the x360a100 tag once more.

Exactly. It only counts one View per profile.

Silver accounts don't work, right?

Now, THAT is a good question... I know Silver Accounts only get limited online rights, but I've never actually USED one, so I don't know if that limit includes access to the Forza Storefront.

I've got an old Silver Account lying around, come to think of it, that I've used a few times as a 'player 2' for boosting various multiplayer Achievements. I think I'll fire it up and test it...

If it works, well, we could theoretically reach our goal just by having everyone roll up 2 additional accounts. >_>

EDIT: GAH! I never got around to signing my secondary account up for Xbox Live, and once I DID (just now), I was forcibly given a 1-month Free Gold Membership... so I can't check is Silver Members are able to do it.

...on the other hand, that means that you can just create a (temporarily) Free Gold Account to boost Views. I'm going ahead and making the best of this situation by Viewing and Rating everyone with the x360a100 tag again. (Except for that one weirdo who put up 3 images without ever showing his face in this thread, of course.)

EDIT de la EDIT: Keep in mind, if you do this, that you CANNOT skip the 'introductory one-lap race' at the Bernese Alps. If you try to Quit it, you just have to sit through the whole 'Endangered Species' intro again, and wind up right back where you started.

Well, there it is, then. Between Corma's idea, my experimentation and Redlight Racer's confirmation, we've determined that it's possible to boost views by creating additional free accounts.

And, honestly, that's probably the only way we'll hit 100. >_>

Oh, and of course, the added bonus of this is that you can view and rate your OWN picture in the process. A detail, but a strangely satisfying one. :p

I'm not viewing or rating his photos if he can't take the time to post here. It's only fair(just my opinion, put SOME work in).

I felt the same. I actually wrote down the list on some paper to make sure I avoided him (I noticed 2 of his pics were the 2nd/3rd to show on the list when searching the x360a100 tag). I am guessing he won't be helping the people on the list either.

Well, like I said, if everyone involved in this creates another 2 accounts or so, we should be home free. It's not really that hard to set up a new account - I don't think you even need a valid e-mail address. And once you're done, well, you can just delete the dummy accounts.

I remember making a bunch of dummy accounts on the PS3, and the way it worked there was that you could use a fake e-mail... but not TOO fake. I'm not sure exactly where the border goes, but it seems to be able to tell if you're being too silly. It needs to fit the basic rules for an e-mail, at least.

We've been over that before. The people who don't use the tag obviously haven't followed the threat at all since putting their names in, thus are leechers, thus aren't worth voting for. Same with Pipi - I've already called him out and told him to at least delete the other two images - seeing as he hasn't responded or done anything, he's obviously a leech too. Unless somebody wants to send him a direct message and call him out on it, there's nothing to do but ignore him.

That's probably not true....in the past, every console allowed you to create 3 profiles that got a month free. Once you created those 3 and took the 3 free trials, any future accounts created on that xbox got no such freebies. This may have changed, but until I find out otherwise, it is for this reason that I will not be making any new accounts for this kind of one-off boosting, as I find those month free trials extremely handy for when I get games that require a lot of online boosting that can be done with a second account on my spare console....however, if the current verdict changes and it looks like silvers can vote after all, then I do have a spare account already that was created on an old console, so I would go do some more viewing.




As with most people here though, I am gutted I've been viewing and rating pictures put up by pipi, Masterworld92, Krazy Bass Ted and possibly others who it seems aren't doing any viewing or rating themselves. I've been keeping up with the viewings and ratings, but have not checked this thread for about a week. Had I done so, I would not have viewed or rated their pictures until they posted here and explained themselves. Someone suggested voting their pictures 1 star, but you can't rate a pic twice, so that doesn't help me or others in my situation, plus to do that, you have to view it first, and that's all these people really want, so you're still helping them anyway. People like that annoy me to such a degree that I am forced to suggest something so devious that I fear you may all think me some kind of criminal mastermind for having cultivated such an underhanded and effective, yet simple plan..........What if.................we change the tag?....

mwahahahaha.


I'll leave the current tag in my description for now, so anyone searching for that can still find it, but next time I'm on forza, I'll also add "x360a616", so if everyone (who is active in this thread and thus deserves more views) decides to go with my fiendish plan, then only people still keeping up with this thread will have the new tag. Those without the new tag will stop getting hits when we agree to only search for the new tag.

NOTE: If you guys tell me this is a good idea, I'll take that as a sign that I should persue a criminal career, too.

If you guys do vote to go with the new tag, I would leave it several days at least, maybe a week before we make the switch over, as some people (like myself) are actively doing the searching and viewing, but don't read this thread every day. Delaying the switch over would give those people chance to catch up on this thread, read about the new tag and add it to their pic description.

BlackDragon
11-09-2011, 11:57 PM
Switching to a new tag would be pointless - it wouldn't take long before leechers attached themselves to THAT, too.

Also, you're wrong about several things. You CAN change your rating on a picture, and you DON'T need to View it to do so. Also, (sadly), only your first View counts, so if you've already viewed and rated them, viewing them again won't do anybody any good.

Basically, after you've selected an image, move the indicator down from 'View' to 'Rate'. This will allow you to change the rating you've given something - like, say, from 5 to 1 stars? That's what I did to 'Pipi'. Those other two you're talking about, though... MasterWorld and Krazy Bass? I think they've checked in here, a few pages back, if memory serves. I could be wrong, but keep in mind that people's profile-name here isn't necessarily the same as their GameTag on Xbox Live.

...oh, and as for the bit about the limited number of free 1-months, others have confirmed what you say - that there's only a limited number available on each machine. As for whether Silver-account views and votes count, well, there are contradictory statements on that, and I can't check it myself without first using up my last free month. (Or waiting out the free month on my current secondary profile.) But if YOU have an old Silver Account lying around, you could run a test yourself. Just find an old, uninteresting-looking picture with 0 views somewhere in the system, View it, and wait 'bout a day to see if it registers.

I am gutted I've been viewing and rating pictures put up by pipi, Masterworld92, Krazy Bass Ted

I'll also add "x360a616"

Masterworld92 and Krazy Bass Ted have posted in this thread as they,ve been added to the OP, and would of made more sense of your fiendish act if you put "x360a666" :P

As for whether Silver-account views and votes count

Ive already confirmed that Silver accounts DO NOT increase views

It's not tagged yet as I'm at currently work and just noticed this thread, but I'll do it when I get home later tonight and will then do some viewing and rating for people listed in the OP.

If someone could also buy my crappy vinyl for the achievement that would be awesome too. Reply here if you do and I'll return the favour ;)

Cheers!

In this case, 'many people' means 'people who have actually studied the subject instead of just looking at 70's Heavy Metal covers'. :P The Number of the Beast is, indeed, 616 - the '666' thing was a mistranslation from the original Hebrew.

The more you know...:rock

Oh, and I'll go buy Evil Lee's crappy vinyl if nobody else beats me to it. Don't worry 'bout reciprocating - 1000 bucks is a drop in the sea when you've just spent 12.000 on decals to make your 1-million SSC Ultimate Aero look awesomer than it already does. :woop:

Another photo went up today called "250GTO Fail" with the x360a100 tag from "XBM Yosho".

If you are viewing this thread please post in here. I'll give you the benefit of a couple days by saying your busy and didn't have time to post yet;)

I won't view/rate any photos(unless it's a negative rating) for people that can't take the time to post here.

Hey thanks for posting about my picture, It currently has 10 views. Yea I have been busy with clients and yada yada but I figured I would slap it up there.

Thanks again for taking the time to check though ;)

DefEdge

ChemicalRider, I double checked to see if I'd viewed and rated yours, and I have, so that one is covered. I also grabbed your 3 designs. I don't have anything up, so don't worry about me. :)

Evil L33, I didn't see anything on the storefront about a carbon overlay, or anything for that matter under your name. Are you sure you uploaded it to the storefront? It gives that option after you save the design.

Edit: I spotted a post of yours on another thread. I guess it was there, but I cannot find it, sorry. Seems it has been straightened out though.

BlackDragon
11-14-2011, 12:22 PM
Hmm... things aren't looking too good. We've got maybe 30-40 people in on this, and we need 100. We've established that the same account can't vote multiple times, and that Silver-account votes don't count. We've also found out that you can create 2 Dummy-accounts with a free 1-month Gold Membership, but most people are - understandably - unwilling to spend those on something as simple as this.

We're not likely to get enough people together to reach 100 at this rate. We need to do some brainstorming, find ways to bring in some more votes. The only thing I can think of right now is to spread this to other message-boards, but while that might bring in more interested voters, it's also bound to bring in more 'leechers' like our own Pipi, or even outright trolls who'll try to screw things up by spamming x360a100-tagged photos or down-voting everybody.

I'm also not sure where to go, exactly. Only place I can think of offhand is the GameFAQs boards, and they're somewhat infamous for the number of trolls that frequent them.

So, any suggestions or ideas?

Each of us sends a message to the people that play Forza 4 in their friends list, and explains them to view/rate the pictures that come up with x360a100.

Success rate expected: low to average

But it's still better than nothing...

We could promote this in the the two x360a car clubs topics. Might find some more people to join and maybe some who are kind enough to view the pictures anyway. But I doubt many of the members are still active and willing to do so.

Just voted for every new picture with the tag.

I have been on the list for some time now, and just reached 50 views.. So it doesnt look like we are going to hit 100 anytime soon. Actually pretty surprised by the lack of community interest in boosting this relatively easy task.. But thanks to all the contributors for trying :)

cheers

A decent idea, certainly. I've already tried it myself, but sadly, the only friend o' mine who plays Forza-games has been disconnected from the internet for over a year.

As for asking car-clubs, it's not a bad idea... but it probably won't have a very high success-rate either, since most of the people joining those just want the Achievement, and then otherwise ignore it. Most of them are unlikely to even check the thread more than the one time it takes to voice your interest. (Now, if there was some in-game Club Communication Line, THAT might work.)

Loca, if you add x360a100 to your photos, it will be more accessible. Anyhow, I have viewed and rated both of your pictures, your Spirit didn't have any views, and the Bently shot had 12 views but no rates.

Best news, and this is for everyone in here, I convinced one of my friends to go through and rate everyone's pictures that had the tag (except Pipi's), and I'm going to try and get more of them to view and rate the others. It was too bad he had already viewed and rated mine, but ah well.

Wow... I have some of the weirdest luck. When I made my dummy account for voting on photos, I decided to do a Aventador rivals challenge race on it real quick (To go up a couple levels, snag some free cars and send them to my real account). Well, they just announced the winners for week 1 on the Aventador challenge, and my dummy account got one. haha... Talk about completely useless.

I had the same kind of luck when they had the contest for the free November DLC... I perticipated for 2 days, every single contest. Told a buddy he should try one too, on one where we had to do it in game. He never went to the forums, and just participated because it was fun... and he ended up winning the DLC on his first try. lol


Anyways, Going to vote on any and all new people tonight.

It's why I tried to make my picture interesting with the Back to Basics title.

Too bad there are millions of other pictures and nobody wants to sift through them.

Edit: Seems there is a free gold weekend coming starting Thursday the 24th. I will definitely be taking advantage of that for my 2 other accounts that are currently silver to get a few more votes and views for myself and everyone here.

Edit 2: Power, I have viewed and rated your picture.

Hi guys. Just dropping in to catch up on the thread and see what the latest is on trying to get this all for us. I had read the 2 replies to my previous post the day after I made it, so all the corrections were taken on board and I did not give bad ratings to the people I mistakenly thought weren't participating. To be honest, I decided not to change the rating on the one we all seem confident is, as I realised how easily mistakes can be made, so I just left him with 5 star. If he is an *** and hasn't viewed and rated anyone elses, oh well. Such is life.


Anyway, it seems I've cheked in at the right time to see there may be a free gold weekend starting today, so I'll go and catch up with all the newcomers on my main account, then I'll get a couple of dummies online and viewing.

Hopefully I won't be the only one who spots the post about the free gold weekend.

Edit: There seem to be conflicting reports about when the free weekend starts, some say today, others say it's just Sat/Sun. xbox.com (here (http://www.xbox.com/en-GB/Live/Free-LIVE-Weekend)) say it's just Sat/Sun, so that's what I'll go with. I've caught up with the views and ratings on my main account and on Sat or Sun, I'll get my dummy accounts on there and get us all a couple more views.

For the benefit of those who skim through the thread and may have missed all mention of it so far....

FREE XBL WEEKEND - 26/11 - 28/11 - Get your spare accounts online and viewing!

DefEdge
11-24-2011, 12:40 PM
According to http://www.xbox.com/en-US/Live/Free-Weekend <---Here!

The 'weekend' starts today, so I'll check that out as well.

Cleared unneeded edit for something relevant: I just logged on my other account and was able to make a party. As far as I know, you can't make a party unless you are gold. So I'm doing my added votes now.

Edit AGAIN!: Using both of my silver accounts, we are now 2 votes richer. I was at 49, and now I'm 51. If you have a silver account, don't wait till it's too late.

Also, IRONMAN 157 needs to get on this board, he's got the tag, but I haven't seen him on here yet. My vote is held back from him until I know.

I have no idea why this hasn't been more successful. I mean, it's not for an achievement, but if you want to be a completionist for this game (which I would like to be, only thing I can't see happening immediately is the 10 unicorns, much less 5) then unless you win a photo comp on Facebook, you don't have much chance unless you get it to go viral (whatever).

It seems though that I'm lucky to have 54 views right now. I still want to see this succeed though.

My probelem is we have 47 people on the list, 39 photos show up with the tag and I'm currently at 52 views. Some of you have more views and some of you have less. Some photos that show up are from people who never posted here and some even have more than 1 photo within that 39.

So I guess my question is what should we do? I'm not going to help those who won't help us. And I understand that some probably don't check here anymore which is why I'm thinking about sending a mass message to all on the list.

Ideas? New or altered photo tag?
