Submit your screenshot for the SOTM of August 2022

Postby Anarcho-pilot » Sun Jul 31, 2022 5:18 pm

Hello everyone!

Now's your chance to submit your candidate for August's FlightGear SOTM contest!

Participation Rules
1. 20 entries (because a poll can only have 20 options).
2. Only one entry per person to give everyone a fair chance of submitting a screenshot.
3. You may enter one extra for somebody else. This person of course can submit their own candidate.
4. If you submit a screenshot of another person, please make sure he/she grants you the right to publish it under the correct license.
5. Please convert your picture from PNG into JPEG (plenty of converters online).
6. Must be taken with FlightGear.
7. Every picture should have a caption. It would be useful to add the name of the aircraft and the location, where the screenshot was taken, to the caption. (For example: "Greeting the dawn - C172P, Keflavik".) Otherwise, please, mention it at least in your entry.
8. Screenshots must not be post-processed except from cropping and/or resizing (but you may use the in-sim filters). You may also add titles mentioning an author of the screenshot and/or aircraft/location displayed on it.
9. You may change your entry as often as you want, until the voting starts.
10. You agree to license your screenshot under the CC-BY-SA 4.0 license for publication by the FlightGear project.
11. You agree that the screenshot may be used to promote the FlightGear project, including publication on the flightsim.com forum with proper attribution according to the CC-BY-SA 4.0 license.

Here is a Wiki article with some advice on making nice screenshots: http://wiki.flightgear.org/Howto:Make_nice_screenshots .

Voting will start when 20 entries are reached or at the latest on August 21st, in a separate topic.

Best wishes - Anarcho-pilot.

@w3bc. your image doesn't show - can you maybe upload it at some "normal" image hosting provider like imgbb.com ?

Thanks. I'm used to using my own websites which won't go away until I do :)

EDIT 2020-08-10 ... I found the bug with my "abnormal" site. It was an expired HTTPS certificate. My fault, my fix. All good now.

Still, though, many thanks to everyone for your encouragement and helpful, useful recommendations. Aviation has a long and enlightening history of such camaraderie.

Press ON!

using your own site is no issue, just make sure that you a) have https and b) link to the file direktly ( and c) that the server is accessible via IPv4...)
