I'm just putting out feelers for a possible competition to see how many people may be interested in it. The user review section is a bit sparse at the moment, so I'm thinking about holding a competition to win something (PC Game, RAM upgrade or something along those lines) to the best article submitted to that section.

It doesn't necessarily have to be a review (it could be an article on how to do something). The winner would be decided by member voting in an open poll.

Any takers for this? If not I'll think of something else for Christmas :D If enough people are interested I'll get something drawn up in the next few days :)

If you want to do it as a normal forum post you could always write the text as normal but upload the photos using the "attachments" forum on the post reply screen. You should be able to then add the attachment files in as photos using the "insert image" button on the toolbar and then centre each image.

If you want to test it out then you can create a test thread and give it a go if you want and then I'll just delete it when you're done :)

Thanks , will give it a go next week as I'm busy trying to get me head round how to produce a talking Daisy book for the blind at the minute . Its taken me 4 days to track down free software that will do the job . An me first two attempts went pear shaped . So me brains a bit fried at the moment and I need to chill for a while .

Hey Ian,
missed this last month, but I'd be interested if you are still running it or run another one.
I'll see what I can come up with for you.
