Why do the rules keep changing ? That person who posted that remarkably arty photo last month, described as green blur, would have his photo ruled ineligible after this new rule implementation. he may have spent all month in a darkroom, blurring photos, to find that all that work has been wasted.

I review the rules as necessary. Whilst POTM is voted upon by the users, the photo is displayed on the site home page and I believe that entries should meet a certain standard.

That said, anyone who wants to post their photos is most welcome to do so at any time by creating a new thread in the photos forums.

I have submitted my two photos to Facebook. Couldn't seem to upload smoothly this evening to anything apart from that. Yay for Hackett internet converage!  :-\

Moderator: 743's photos are below
