Yay the August Contest has begun!! I already put in my newest picture :D hehe. I made it size 800x600 because it was at 1280x960 or something like that ...
The photo entry period ends today. No photos will be accepted after Aug 16 11:59PM CST.

There is currently one photo that does not meet the size requirements. This image will be removed if not edited before the end of the contest entry period.
I see two that don't meet it. Anyways, Brad, have the rules changed since the last contest? I know we were discussing alterative ideas for the voting process, but has anything come of that yet?

Good luck to everyone.
No changes have been made to the voting process yet; I wanted some more time to think about it. If I decide to make any big changes, they will be announced at the beginning of the contest.
Voting has now started for the August photo contest. One photo was not used because it did not meet the size requirements. There may be a little confusion about size requirement as I made a slight change to the rules here ([THREAD=1201]rule change[/THREAD]), but did not completely update the official contest rules thread.

Good Luck :)

Hey brad, I seem to be having some sort of issue voting. When I go to vote, it says "Thank you for Voting on this poll. The results will be announced shortly!" However, I have not voted yet for this month. Is it perhaps looking at my vote for last month? Has anyone else had this problem?
Also, I wanted to add, in a prior contest, I was prompted to vote again, after I had already voted, days earlier. Do you have measures in place to prevent that?
oops :rolleyes:
I forgot to reset the permissions. You should be able to vote now.

There are measures to prevent members from voting more than once. If you were able to vote twice, then something was wrong. Please let me know if this happens again; if you remember which contest this happened in that would help as well. I check the results for multiple ip's and other suspicious actions and have not noticed any logic errors.
I knew that I had just voted, so I didnt' vote again. I thought it was weird that it didnt' say "thank you for voting", an dit seemed to be ready to accept another vote. I log in wiht the same username, but on four different computers (Office, Home, Parents' house, and in-laws'), with 4 different IP addresses. Is the forum checking votes based on IP's, usernames, or both?
I just logged in on another computer, after voting on a different one. The message says "thank you for voting" - I guess there's nothing wrong now, if there was even a problem before.

I am detecting suspicious voting activity for the same user two months in a row. This is the only warning you will receive if this activity continues.
Voting has now ended for the August contest. Results will be posted no later than September 3rd.
