Ditto, Claudia. At first I got over ambitious and thought that since the photos I was submitting did not already have the formatting of the database image name, that the photo had not been submitted before, but found out that was not the case. I guess the same picture was posted more than once in different threads or something. So I opened two windows on my computer and checked every image after that to make sure they were not in the database already and was more discriminatory about what photos I submitted.
I still think the contest is a great idea. I think that since the negative feedback has been minimal, most people are okay with having their pictures associated with the db by someone other than themselves.
Since any and all pictures posted on this website can be protected by copyright or profile settings, and the admins get final say in whether a picture is added to the database or not, I have waffled back and forth about being sorry. Especially since I know now that I have associated pictures of some who have sent that negative feedback. I certainly never intended to cause hard feelings just for playing a game. I cherish the friendships I have with everyone here and hope we can all still be friends.
A final thought: How blessed I am if something like this is all I have to worry about with all that is going on in the world today. I pray for peace every day.
