I have no record of your uploading any photos to the server, at all, so I am at a loss as to how to explain why you don't have any entries.

But you have time and can still enter them.

@dave

Maybe the green colored <<< Upload and submit the photo >>> button wasn't pushed (clicked)?! That could be why the photos aren't (weren't) in the system.

Hi Randall,

Welcome to ATP! Welcome!

I don't know. Dave will have to respond to your question. I was thinking that maybe you had forgotten to push the green button.

Thank you for the welcome Marilyn. Indeed, Hummingbirds are true jewels as are monarch butterflies and honey bees.

Hey, I found the problem. You uploaded the photos under your original username but then you changed your username. Unfortunately due to a bug in the system, it didn't change the username associated with your images.

So now that I know, I found your original photo entries and will update them to correspond to your new username (and I'll fix the bug that let this happen.)

Welcome to ATP Randall! Welcome! Welcome!
I'm so glad you don't have to go back & reload all those photos. Hurray! Leave it to Dave, he can always figure out what happened & fix it too. Big Grin
