Is there a way I can view the other current entries, or does that only happen on the November whatever it was date (when judging beings)?

Hey, nice choice of words: "pitted". Hmmmm? - :greengrin:- Reminds me of pitbull dogs; we here at NGA are bad!!! oh, I guess it could be chickens, roosters more specifically. ~just kidding~ I tip my hat to you.

I think we can see the entries only after the contest is over and prizes have been awarded.

Then how can we vote? Don't we all get to vote?

You're right, Teresa. I wasn't thinking. Yes, when voting is open we can see them.

Members of the site, if I'm understanding correctly, will be all of us. At least, it was last time.

So then we can only begin looking at other photo entries on November 24th. I don't usually start getting really busy until December, was thinking it would be nice to begin viewing now. But then that would not be fair to late entries . . . I was tired last evening when I posted this, so thinking wasn't as clear.
