    It seems like our Weekly Challenges (successor of the 72-Hour Challenges) is not doing very well.

    Maybe a combination of not very popular themes, lack of punctuality and short time?

    This was already discussed here but let me say it again: personally I would like to see it turning into projects that really challenge, make us think and go out and shoot (maybe monthly projects?). We could still have one organizer who would, at the end of the month, choose her/his favorite photos.

    What do you think?

    No offense to the leader of the current challenge, but it was an oddly specific topic.

    I wouldn't mind adding a monthly project, but that doesn't mean the weekly challenges have to be dropped. It seems like there are lots of new faces around here so hopefully with more accessible themes more people will join in the fun?

    agreed on all counts ... I do check the last challenge frequently to see other entries, though.

    I would like to hear people's opinions about the monthly project idea. Would you be interested in participating?

    I think a monthly project would be cool but I would like to see the weekly stay as well.

    We need advertising. There's a lot of members here but I wonder how many even know about it.

    It may just be my observation , but it looks like the weekly challenge has lost interest.

    That is what I think too. And, looking at the response rate here, it seems like its future also does not interest people... :)

    Monthly may get more interest.

    So here's my suggestion: can somebody experienced (photographically speaking) organize a first monthly challenge? Something that could attract more people than the previous editions of the weekly one...

    A moment of silence in memory of the Weekly Challenge.
