My photo was not included in the contest this month?

I submitted a photo for the March contest, but it is not in the voting line-up. I followed the correct link when I submitted it, and I received a message that the photo had been submitted. But I just went to vote, and it is not there.

Does anyone have any ideas what went wrong? I guess I'll have to resubmit one for April.

Thanks.

I wish I could help, BB. That happened to me last month (Feb contest). I still don't know what happened, so I can empathize.

You planning to post Radagast in there and win first time out? ;-}

I thought I'd give it a try. Do we know who to
ask about our submissions not showing up? No one ever responded to you, either?

There must be a glitch in the processes somewhere.

Nope. Nope. And yep.

I figure these Admin folks are pretty busy running two photo contests along with operating this and the parent site. So I cut them some slack and appreciate their efforts.

My submission got entered this month. If yours doesn't next month I'll help you carp. ;-}

I see that both of you are new members and it might just be that you dont have enough posts.

I'm pretty sure you can't enter the contest without a certian number of post counts.

The results are in!

Yeah, it might have to do with post count, I'm not sure. I'm wondering if a person can't see their submitted photo to prevent people from voting for their own. Again, I'm not sure.

Nothing was said about post count in the rules (which I can't find, at the moment, darn). As far as I
know, that only applies to the "Classifieds" sub-forum.

The entrants submitted picture does appear in the ballot, but the "vote" button is disabled.

You're right, BL. (I had in fact met the post requirements, but.....)

The entrants photo appears on the ballot, but the "vote" button is disabled.

Btw, I saw your "thank you" below the 'rules' post, so I know you read them. Remembered them, too, I see. ;-}

I thought it was something like that. Well I already knew the button voting for your picture is disabled or else poeple would vote for themselves. Its fair.

Post count wasn't the problem. I had tried to submit one before and you get a message saying you have to have at least 20 posts. I exceeded that number before submitting again, and I got a message that it had been submitted.

Funny, when I look at the photos to vote on, one of the buttons is grayed out preventing me to vote for that pic. But that is not my photo. Were some wires crossed somewhere?

Actually, what I see is a little blue square with a question mark in it and the button is disabled. Maybe that is my pic and I just can't see it.
