Perlinco Photo Challenge

Hi Everybody...

No pictures today. Just a plug for a web site I put together last weekend and perfected in the last couple of days: the Perlinco Photo Challenge at

"Perlinco" stands for "The PERmaLINk COntest". The hardest part of the whole project was finding a name that could have a corresponding ".com" domain still free. In fact, short .com combinations of characters that make some sense are almost impossible to find, unless you spend hundreds, even thousands of bucks.

Anyway, Perlinco is a never ending photo challenge where you can showcase your pictures and the URLs of your photoblog posts, which are technically called "permalinks", hence the name of the site.

Every Sunday, at midnight, a new theme is posted in the home page.

Your submission is given an initial score. Then you get points every time somebody clicks or votes your image. Every day, though, some points are subtracted from all the entries and, if your score goes to zero, the entry is removed from the challenge (right now, it takes at least 100 days for this to happen).

Posting to the challenge is free and takes only a few seconds. Furthermore, if you install the "submit text link" on your pages, it takes even less to submit your posts.

So... if anybody cares to give it a try and, maybe, let me know about any suggestions, I'd really appreciate it!

Ciao, Foto di Spalle.

P.S. I posted some of my pictures to the contest, just to start, but I swear I will not cheat, having full control of the voting system. In other words, I will post my images like anybody else does... I just hope they won't be the only ones.
