Is that anything like:

"Hi. I'm from the Government. I'm here to help you." :rofl:

Exactly!

I'm hoping mine got there, I sent it in last month and I *think* I just missed the cut off, so I resent it this month. (where is the crossed fingers emoticon?)

Neil,
I sent mine in yesterday from another email account and my second photo is the correct one (sent the wrong one in my first email to you, but corrected myself in the second one!!).

I was going to post a screen shot of my email program's May contest folder but it shows people's full names.

I don't want to send an email to everybody just to say I got their picture (I have close to 20 btw :thumbup: ).

When we post the pictures be sure and check that yours is there. If it isn't, send it right away.

Just a reminder that the submission deadline is Saturday.

Wonderin' if folks might like the idea of being able to vote for more than one entry this time around?

I think that is a great idea Barbara. Depending upon how many entries there are of course, but maybe up to 3 would be good.

Barbara, that will make the contest way more interesting. I mean, hypothetically speaking, if you only have one vote and you entered a picture you really like, but that picture receives zero votes and it is approaching the end of the contest, and believing your picture is good enough for at least one vote, it could become a weighted struggle of "do I vote for this other person's picture because I really really like it even more than mine, or do I vote for my own because no else will and that is really really sad?"

Hypothetically speaking, of course! :oops:

Love the idea of 3 votes per person.

3 votes works for me. Lots of good reasons. :)

Ok, I'm convinced. :D

One thing we've found with the multiple choice poll is that you get one chance to vote. That is, if you choose one entry, then submit your vote, that's the end of it. You can't go back and vote again, if you didn't take advantage of the 3 vote option the first time.
