Given the lively participation in discussions on the subject, one might tend to
surmise that there will be a fairly high level of participation in the current
"Test Round" of the newly reborn IRTC. I have, however, noticed that there are
presently no submissions.  I suspect that this is because most folks, like
myself, are planning to use most or all of the available time to work on the
image.

Has anyone attempted a submission?  Who out there is pretty sure that they'll be
submitting an entry?  Any interesting thoughts about dealing with the wide open
"topic" for the test round?  Is the return of the IRTC being publicized on
other 3D / ray tracing forums?  Do the IRTC admins (if you should happen to
read this) want folks to work to spread the word, or is this something that you
prefer to handle yourselves?

Thanks in advance for all replies.

Best Regards,
Mike C.

I'm probably going to submit an old image at the last minute. I was going to 
work on some kind of resurrection/zombie themed thing but I don't really 
have time.

There already *are* submissions. You just don't see them yet, because until the
deadline you will only see your own submissions. (Well, you *can* see the
others if you know how, due to a bug they haven't fixed yet. At the moment
there seem to be six submissions. None from you though, as it seems :P)

   Wait ...is the "Test Round" a real first round, in which "Test" is the 
current topic? Then Samuel Benge is going to win for sure! ;)

   Seriously now, I did submit a test image I had laying around, but it 
wasn't specifically done for the IRTC, because I think this is just a "fake" 
round just to test things out (and will be surely deleted later, when the 
IRTC starts for real).

Thanks for the info.  Perhaps a good tweak for the site would be for the Current
Round page to say something like "Submissions can be viewed after the mm/dd/yy
submission deadline." instead of saying that there are no submissions.

Look for my entry near the very last minute (as usual) ;-)

Best Regards,
Mike C.

I made a submission.  It is difficult to know it it worked.

I ve tried to upload a previous image, you know just to publish it. It seems to
e some problems, because i only got te answer "no thumbnail sent" or something
like that, so i couldn't pass it.

I hope it is goint to get fixed, it would be good.

I haven't submitted an image myself yet, so this is a surmise based on
observation rather than a hard fact, but it seems to be that there is a
"browsing box" on the upload page that one can use to upload one's own
thumbnail image that is 75 pixels high.  I'm going to guess that the
informational message that your submission did not include a thumbnail does not
automatically imply that the entire submission was rejected.  Again, this is not
a hard fact.  Information on this subject from those who do know for certain
would be most welcome. It's not really clear what happens when one does not
submit a thumbnail.  Will one be generated?  Will a default image be used?
Does the thumbnail submitted by the entrant need to be a re-sized version of
the entire image or can a "detail" image be used?

Just in case anyone reading this might be in need of a freeware resource for
generating a thumbnail image, "Irfanview" is easy to find with just about any
search engine and offers both ease of use and a relatively high degree of
control over the resizing process.

Best Regards,
Mike C.

I got that message when I tried to upload a jpg thumbnail.  I converted 
to png and it worked
