Dave - We aren't supposed to know who entered which photos until after the voting ends, correct?

I noticed that the photos have our copyrighted names on them. Are you able to remove that temporarily for the voting?

I have disabled the watermarks for all future entries into the contest but the ones already uploaded will have to be reuploaded. I will have to delete them and notify the ones who submitted them that they have to re-submit. I feel awful about it but I'm glad you caught this early - thank you!

I had a feeling the photos might have to be resubmitted. Sorry I didn't noticed it sooner when there were fewer photo entries.

Being the very first photo contest .... any issues will be ironed out on this one .... so any others following this one will run flawlessly.

I have another question .... what happens if there is a tie for any of the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place photos?

You're right about the issued being ironed out. This first contest is definitely an opportunity for us to get everything fixed.

I've notified everyone affected and asked them to resubmit. It was 6 or 7 members. I can't believe I made such a glaring mistake, though. (Where's the smacking the forehead icon when you need it?)

As for if there is a tie, well, that would be pretty unusual but I guess I'll just let Bill at Caladium Bulbs 4 Less decide what he wants to do. Smiling

I tip my hat to you. Thumbs up

Looks like there are going to be a wonderful amount of photos submitted if you had almost 70 submitted today before you had to delete them and ask those folks to re-submit them again! Though I realize the first day to submit photos is usually the busiest! Can't wait to see all the photos!

Thanks for fixing the glitch! Thumbs up
