I was meaning to enter this one too, and missed the deadline due to random riff raff and other things quizzing my head. But I'd have to agree with above in that I had a chance to enter 2 - 3 weeks ago, but felt 'It's okay, I'll sketch something up closer to the time'... Then it tick tocked away! Perhaps if the time scale was reduced, and it was placed in or around the same date every month say, it would urge people to act quicker.

Although I never entered, I'd be sad to see it go.

I like the fast challenges (even though I hardly ever participate and procrastinate about it too).

When I'm working on a project, seeing how much others do in an hour is inspiring, therefore I think the 1hr format is best and rather unique really

It'd be interesting to have feedback on a 1hdc entry, then throw another hour of sketching at the design afterwards... like a rev 2 of a design or 2hdc

as far as seeing it go: moderator or not, anyone could post a challenge on the forum... If your throwing in the towel, I guess it's up to us to kick something off

Ray, I think it could be 1 true hour.

The topic could announced or posted at PST 11:59am and you have to have everything posted by 1pm. you'd have to clear your schedule or find a way to make it work, but you commit to a slot finite timeslot, or even just the first 15min, then post, and done. 1 true hour gives some urgency to it, and you don't get spoiled seeing everyone's submissions spread out over 2 weeks.

I hope someone picks it up. I've entered a couple at least, as far as I can remember. I even won one. For me participating mainly came down to two things; was I interested in the challenge, and consistency of the challenges. Honestly, 1HDC was the thing that kept me coming back to these boards (to see if there was one going down and what was it) but with the inconsistency of their occurrences came the inconsistency of me coming here. Though, there is probably some way to get notified about them and I'm just not that savvy with the tech.

But with that being said, thanks a lot Jon for putting your time into organizing them!

I remember the skateboard grip tape challenge. Was that the most participation/whining & complaining/awesome fun that 1HDC has ever seen?!

The water saving competition comes to mind...

I propose whomever wants to throw up a competition, do it. We could even create a section just for challenges. A moderator could lock the thread at a given time and that would be that. We could see how it goes for a couple tries and if it doesn't work, no harm done, we try something else.

Who wants to give it a shot for the first round?

To whom it may concern at core, I would be willing to talk about continuing what Jon created and being the moderator, if you would like to pm me i have a few questions, and ideas that i would want tor confirm and run by you to ensure we are on the same page. Maybe even a quick phone call.
