What's happened to the IIS Image of the Week?

Hi mods, it appears that the IIS Image of the week hasn't been updated since Jan 11.
During this time several members have created some truly amazing images, and a more than a few APOD's as well.
Would you like some assistance with updates or is there some other problem preventing this excellent feature being updated?
Cheers
Andy

I agree - APODS galore & no mention.

Mike must be getting lazy - or more likely too busy with family and work.

Image of the week is entirely Mike's department and nothing to do with the mods.
I do keep reminding him about it, especially since there's been some stunning images produced lately, but he has been very busy with work and family.
I assume he'll update it when he gets a chance.



Cheers

I'm becoming a fan of AAPODx2 now anyway - European based and maybe not as prestigious as APOD, but at least it updates every day and it's for Amateurs only (I think).

It would require editing the front page of the website so it may not be that straightforward. But for sure we could have an informal thing - image of the month might be more realistic though, something like the photo challenge that's run by a stig.

Month sounds more realistic to me as well, besides the effort involved (which could be reduced), I don't think we have the volume to support an image of the week.

Thanks for the reminder Marcus, I'd forgotten about that site.
