It is my understading that the contests for photo of the month and page of the month is for members of this forum. I see photos and pages from people I have never heard of and are they actually members?

Tina, I was asking myself the very same thing.
Do not the powers that be have the right to remove the non-member photos from the contests created for members only?
It may encourage the nons to spend a couple minutes and join this great community.
Just a thought.

I guess all we can do is "stuff the ballotts" for our own members.

Another thought. If they're not members, by rule, they are automatically disqualified. We still need to vote. I have.

I don't know how you can tell who's a member and who's not, but you risk alienating lurkers & potential new members by disqualifying them! Can you be sure they're NOT members?
The members list is in alphabetical order at the top by logout. You can look them up and see if they have joined yet. Don't forget our contest runs through the month and not each week so there should be more entries before the months finished. I looked up the new people that entered the contests and they are not on the members list.

I posted about this in another. I have looked up these people entering the contest and they are not members. I have made comments on their PrestoPhoto if they allow them that these contest are for members only and tell them we would love to have them join our community. I place the text images in both contest explaining as well it is posted in the contest descriptions. There is nothing more I can do to stop non-members from entering since they fail to read the contest description or look back at the other entries and see the text image. It is obvious they don't read the description since they enter their images in both image and page contest.

As for disqualifying them or removing them, I can't remove them. I don't know if Amy or Christan can and they have much more important things to do besides worry about who is entering our contest. All I can do is if they get votes is to not count them.

Thanks KIm for looking into the matter of non members posting.

Tina B
Out of 12 entries for the Image of Month only 3 are by members. At least the Page of the Month has less none member entries than the images so there are more legitimate ones to vote on there.
