In my opinion.....To make a decision after or during the fact, Just wouldn't be right.
It would be like landing on Boardwalk and someone telling you... Oh by the way, I forgot to mention...If you are the shoe, you must pay me double. You get the idea...

I wouldn't add any more days to complicate things. Photos taken near months end can easily be stored for future use.
Whatever the decision... If changed, should then be added or subtracted in the rule guide. Guidelines for Photo of the Month Contest

The rules or a link to them (such as the above) "should always" be included at the beginning of each contest to provide easy access for review and most important....new members.

Gee, thanks, Mark!

I thought of the idea remembering back in the day when i could contribute pix, how sometimes i'd get home with shots I couldnt possibly get uploaded and entered in time. Admittedly, i do come home with at least two hundred shots a day, or four hundred, and you probably don't do that. And it's not as if WG is the highest priority every moment. It usually is, of course!

This contest is for having fun! I'd give huge prizes if I could! We want it to be fair, but not to be taken too seriously to let it be fun!

Here's my conclusion: since BooBoo's booboo brought this issue to light, it is being addressed. Since this is June 1, i feel i can allow monthly entries to be added by the fifth of the following month, as long as the pic is taken in the month of the thread. This will be the case every month.

For example: photos taken in June can be posted up to July 5th, and so on.

This starts NOW. Not May, sorry BooBoo, because it wasn't in effect May.

I hope everyone can live with that! . And WG Admin i'm sure will help out by getting it added to the rules.

Another unmentioned bonus is that let's say towards the end of the month you get an absolutely more fabulouser (!) pic but you have already entered FIVE. (edit) No problem, add the newer pic and a note to the judge that it is to replace the pic in post 16. I can deal with that!

I think that is fair and a good idea for this and future months.

Having just re-read the POM rules, I see the number of entries has been permanently changed to FIVE! FIVE ENTRIES and FIVE EXTRA DAYS TO ENTER! How cool is that?

Thank you, admins!

Now, share what you are seeing now!

I don't know if that change was made today but I just saw it today. I did that originally to encourage entries at a slow time, but it's fine with me to make it permanent. Everyone who enters gets one more chance, so I hope everyone is okay with it.

Let's leave it at five entries.

You lift limits when you see fit.

Great shot, Equil! Definitely a potential winner there!

I love the natural wood added to the house. I've been wanting to create a more natural-looking nestbox, so I can really appreciate that...and it gives me some more ideas.
