Submission closed. The voting is here (http://forums.auran.com/trainz/showthread.php?89824-Voting-for-Screenshot-of-the-Week-6-5-to-6-12).

This week has no theme.

One screenshot allowed per entrant. Screenshots must adhere to the theme and the Code of Conduct.

Submission closes on June 12 at 12:00 a. m. UTC (June 11 at 8:00 p. m. here in the eastern U. S.), after which point voting will begin.

Next week's theme (starts June 10 at 12:00 a. m. UTC. I promise): The 1970s (suggested by Rail4Pete).

Please feel free to PM me with suggestions for themes, etc. They are much appreciated!

Good luck. :)

Regards,

Zachary.

Congrats on the mod status!

Ed, I am only a moderator here in the Competitions forum so that I can post new Screenshot of the Week threads here (as well as do stuff like closing old submission and voting threads), as regular users can not post new threads here, and N3V wanted the contest to be located here from now on.

I looked in the User Control Panel to see if I could change my user title to "ScreenshotOfTheWeek mgr." or whatever (to avoid confusion that I was a real forum moderator), but it appears the feature to use a custom user title is now unavailable for me.

Regards,

Zachary.

No need to protest Zachary, I was just congratulating you! Better a Mod of one forum section, than none at all. AJ has needed some help some a long time now, so good for you!

Nice shot Bob, the cliffs look good from here!

And now for my shot:

To celebrate the switch of venue and the status switch of Retro to an almost-not-quite-full-blooded-mod, a couple more switchers...

<snip>

Protesting? I was just stating facts. Sorry if I came across negatively. Thanks for the comments, but I am only allowed to use the moderation functions as necessary for the running of the contest, i. e. being able to post new Screenshot of the Week threads here in the first place, as well as being able to close old, closed submission and voting threads (though it would be a little tempting to delete any posts by spammers that might happen to be posted here, lol). (I would also be able to try the Poll feature for the voting threads, but its limitations make it unsuitable for the purpose.) Thus why I would like to change my user title to avoid confusion for a real moderator. Besides, I am sure that there are others around here who are more worthy of being one of the real forum moderators than me.

Okay, I get it; you're not worthy and all that, and you're not a real mod, you only have certain privileges in this forum. You may think the assignment means nothing and anyone could do it, but remember that not everyone has the temperament, patience and wisdom to do every job. I was once promoted past my skill level and found out over a few years why that was a corporate error! I relinquished the position to someone else who was far better suited to deal with other people than I, and accepted the demotion. It was hard to do, but after a number of years I see everything running more smoothly with a more easy going guy in charge. I'm not saying being a Mod is a big fancy deal, I'm just saying that not everyone could do it, and the fact that you have been entrusted with it says something good about your character. Can we leave it at that?:hehe:

That's a fancy introduction for a little box with an "x" in it!

Okay; WHAT THE HECK?
I viewed the thread at my place of "work", and the picture didn't show. I replied as above, but cancelled the reply thinking that it may show when I got home, and it does. The thing is, when I cancelled my reply, it ignored me and posted it anyway. So I thought I would just look at it when I got home, which I have. So now I want to edit the post above to at least remove the image, and my "Edit" button is gone!
I should mention that when I arrived at home, the power must have gone out, so I reset all the clocks, then had to recycle the power on my router and my modem, but... this is just too strange!

My apologies to everyone for wasting your time!:(

I think I see now, the "edit" button appears on other threads in other forums, but obviously this "competitions" forum does not allow editing our posts.

The first task for our new moderator here is a fact. :hehe:

We are deep in the Mojave Desert. All is quiet. In place of noise, we have the stifling heat and musty, dry smell to keep our senses occupied. Suddenly, our ears pick up something. It sounds like...a rumbling, a far-off rumbling. Then a horn is heard. There is only one possibility now. As the rumbling gets louder, louder, we start to hear a screeching sound. Soon, when the sound starts to become almost unbearably loud another sounding of the horn makes it louder, and a second later the noisemakers come into view, a trio of BNSF GEs. But as they draw closer, and sound for the many private grade crossings that are surprisingly dense in this barren wasteland, we discover that only one unit is running, and is clawing its way up the 2% grade, hauling 2 silent sisters and a long empty intermodal string. As it draws even closer, we hear the prime mover screaming in notch 8 even louder than ever, and the wheels slipping. Then in an instant, BANG! The engineer quickly turns the power all the way down, stops the train, and goes back with a fire extinguisher to see what blew. And here is the moment frozen in time, much like the desert itself.

Sounds like an issue that N3V might want to look into if members can't edit their own posts in this forum. Unless I'm supposed to hang around here more often and take requests by others to edit mistakes out of their posts. :o (I suppose I could edit that quoted image out of your post if you really want me to, Ed.)
