Default Recruiting Throwdown Participants

Just a thought.....if some of the regular Throwdown participants wanted
to ad a link in their signature; it may (or may not) attract new people
that will want to participate.

If desired you can use the one below; or make your own.

Copy and paste the code you see below into your signature...THEN
copy and paste the bracket at the end of this sentence
onto the end of the code to make it work. ]

You can also change the text in the above code that says..CLICK HERE to visit the BBQ Brethren Throwdowns..
to say whatever you want. Just delete that section; and type whatever you want to say there in its place.

I can only speak for myself, but if the TD's were taken a bit more seriously they may also attract more participants. People entering a dish hoping for a zero, people voting for someone purely to keep them from getting a zero, some of the off color comments in TD threads, intimidating chat...etc. I'm not saying any of this is a huge problem to me, but I can certainly understand why someone would feel it's not worth their time to participate in something like that.

I hate to contribute to the threadjack, but if it wasn't for the fun and games, I would probably have quit long ago. Being able to laugh it off when something you made get's zero votes is healthy.

I worked hard on the dish that got me my first zero. But knowing that other good dishes get zeros, and making a club for zeros, helps put things into perspective.

IMO, almost all of the entries are serious entries, and the few that aren't keep me from taking winning and losing too seriously. I mean, how serious can a food contest be when the "judges" never get to taste the food.

Just my two cents.

I waver back and forth between these two. I do wonder how many people might be alienated by all the silliness. At the same time, if it weren't for that, I long ago would've gotten bored and would've quit the Brethren altogether. These things are for fun and I can't take the final results too seriously. Every week there are seriously good entries that get almost no votes. Two things keep me going: 1. It is fun, and 2. It forces me to get out of my comfort zone. Both are worthy reasons to continue and the silliness does keep it fun. I do wonder if we cross the line at times though ... yeah, seriously ... I really do.

And I'll particpate, when I can, going forward exactly because of all this.

It's cooking, it's a hobby, its supposed to be fun. Something that I feel gets lost in the Competition forum, at times by myself.

Any "Threadjacking" of this thread by previous posts is nonexistent.

Originally I took the Throwdowns very seriously....but later changed to think of them
in a more "Relaxed" manner.

In my opinion...the real winner of each Throwdown is everybody that participates
and/or votes in them; as I feel it encourages all of us to expand our thinking process
as to how; and what to cook, in order to enter a Throwdown. And that
we can use that garnered knowledge to expand our cooking abilities in
ways that we probably would never have considered before.

Life is too short to be serious about things all the time. If people don't
want to participate in the "silliness" of the Throwdowns; I understand
and respect their choice to abstain from the Throwdowns.
