This was never about popularity. Despite the fact that I haven't even been active here for the last while (very busy at work), I made sigfigs of several new members whose user names I didn't even recognize.
We all put a fair amount of work into this, and as Caylin said, the sheer number of figs made photographing all of them in a single picture very challenging.
Hmmm, how do I put this diplomatically....Yes I understand that there was significant work done for this and am glad that this opportunity was given to all and not just those close or lucky enough to attend. I am saying that out of all the figs positions mine had the worst position and could not be seen. Maybe the big plumed fig could have been behind my fig such that his plumes would have been visible over my or most of the other figs. Maybe if there wasn't a shrine/tent/whatever with the two organizers in prominence there would have been more room in the middle (with more figures in the middle of the pic).
If I sound a little unhappy, well, yes, because I was looking forward to this and when my fig is the only one not visible, am I supposed to say gee whiz nice photo?
Now before more members and admins start bagging on me for being unhappy and ban me for life, yada, yada, I apoligize ahead of time for using the right to state my opinon however mildly unhappy it may be. I am glad that the rest of the figs were able to be seen and everyone else is happy with it. This may be all moot for next year because there will be enough figs submitted to make it not possible to have all in one pic.
