I swear I just noticed the link to add your photo to the urban competition we are running.

But now all of a sudden it is gone, only showing the usual Sponsors in that same place

I have noticed this too - wasn't sure if it had been done deliberately, or if I was going mad, or both

Yup - saw it too. It reminded me to start going through my photos. Poof! Gone!

I didn't break it. I have nothing to do with the Photography Forum. I think Marlis stole the crow bar this time...

Edit: Just noticed that the link appeared as I was typing a response to a thread but once the response was posted, the link disappeared again.

It's set to only show a certain amount of times per user, per visit. Kind of test to see if percentage of clickthroughs is higher as a result. But maybe all it does is confuse people

Yesterday, the only time it appeared would be while I had a response box up, typing a reply. Once I hit submit (and the page changed), it would be gone. It only appeared while responding which seemed a bit inconvenient to stop my reply, click to enter my photos (if I'd chosen any yet), then have to start my reply all over again. The link never appeared while going through the forums and threads. Maybe it doesn't think I'm worthy... I understand... So far this morning, it hasn't shown up at all. Guess I have more time to find photos.

Uhm, maybe I am wrong, but isn't the purpose to get as much uploaded photos as possible instead of a percentage of clickthroughs?
Otherwise I might not find the option and don't know anything about the competition. There is no forum topic in the photo forum as well, where usually there is. idea?

Yeah, I suppose you're right. It was more out of curiosity than anything else. (Incidentally, it seemed to make no difference).

I've set it up to show constantly now though, so you should be seeing a lot more of it.
