    Oh sorry, no, once you submit a photo, that's it. I think I would have to pay my developers more money to write a script to recalculate likes if a post is deleted. I can't afford it at the moment. You'll have opportunities to submit better photos in future contests.

    The 5 like limit is per thread, so you have 5 for this thread, too.

    Sorry, not going to happen for a while.

    That's cool, I was just trying to relay my experience from other forums I have been on. I think the interaction between members and the photos will be fun. The forum looks wonderful BTW.

    I am pretty excited for these contests! I think they are gonna be a lot of fun and I love the idea of the new 'LIKE' button.

    Re: Q&A, Comments, Feedback about Contests

    No, I can't do that. I don't have the technical means and I've already got hundreds of dollars invested in getting the enhancements to the point that we can use it as it is right now.

    Everyone has a 5 vote limit. Once a number of entries are submitted, people will have to rearrange their votes. And if you don't win this time, you can resubmit your photo in another contest. I'm extending the first week's contest to be longer than a week to give everyone a chance to get the hang of it. Also, depending on the success and participation, I'll see about adding 2nd and 3rd place prizes.

    I concede it's not perfect, but let's just work together to do the best we can. Let's roll with it for while and see if it works out. I'm not going to allow something that ends up being unfair in the end to stand. I think it will work out, but if not, we'll make adjustments.

    Re: Q&A, Comments, Feedback about Contests

    I wonder if it wouldn't be a good idea to suspend voting until a certain time. I have seen before when forms do photo contests and don't wait to vote the first few photos usually win just because they have been up the longest and had more of a chance to get more votes. Also I'm having trouble uploading photos from my iPhone. I don't know if this is a change or just my phone being buggy.
