Hamishwillee - A few comments

Hi Jen

I've responded to your specific comments in line. This needs a further subedit and perhaps a little simplification - I'll help you with that after we've clarified a few things. Some comments and notes above.

  1. Remember when linking to wiki to use internal link format with double brackets and a pipe
  2. A custom effect is an effect implemented by deriving from CustomEffectBase or ICustomEffect to directly manipulate the pixels in the source image in code. The other type of filter I just called a "filter recipe" - made by combining inbuilt FilterEffects. I would use the Filter Recipe name above to clearly separate the two types.
  3. The prizing is not very compelling compared to previous competitions - the charger is about 50AUD and the camera grip about 90AUD. Compare to Lumia 1020s and the other devices we've had in our last competitions. That may be fine because you're doing this as a challenge, but the effort to create a new filter - even a recipe - can be significant. I would try to have at least one much better prize for overall winner.
  4. What is the competition called? The implication from above is "Nokia Custom Effect Wiki Challenge 2014Q2". As per previous point a custom effect is not a filter recipe, so you might want to consider "Nokia Original Imaging Effect Wiki Challenge 2014Q2" or "Nokia Custom or Recipe Effect Wiki Challenge 2014Q2"

Croozeus - Comments

Hi Jen

Agree with Hamish's points on rewards - we have had a good number (and quality) of articles in the past competitions because the prizes were compelling! I am not sure if there's a device launch at Build event, if there is it could be a good prize to motivate participants.

Regarding the name of the competition - I feel we shouldn't make it too long.

As for the participants, I think this is a good contest to bring in new contributors (in addition to the regular imaging participants). So I like the idea of giving links to already existing articles and techniques for creating recipes.

Would be great to see some images on this page.. perhaps showing the prizes or some custom effects.

That's all from my side!

Hamishwillee - Further subedit

OK, I've given it a provisional title. Yes, I know "Cool" isn't great, but this is just to give us an idea of what it would look like with title bar as well.

I've also subedited to make it more readable and to clarify the prizing and the difference between filter recipes and custom recipes. I removed my inline comments as these have been discussed offline and I've addressed them.

I agree with Pankaj re an image. I also think that the title needs to be reconsidered. I'm a BIG fan of having a "stuck for ideas" section. YOu could start here with other Instagram filters that aren't covered yet. I'm sure Engin would have some ideas on other more complicated filters too.
