Since moving the server a couple of days ago, there was an error affecting a significant number of you. That error has now been resolved and you should find that uploading works as normal again.
If you are still having problems, please let me know.
what happens to the photo competition???
when does the voting starts?
I guess you TP lords are very busy this days with all this changes.
My sources tell me that due to Christmas, holidays, messed up uploading and so on, the period for submitting photos for the winter competition is going to be extended. I'm expecting an official announcement soon
Ah yes, the competition dates have been changed. Nominations close on January 12 and voting runs from then until February 2. Should be able to get a lot more entries that way!
I just want to add to this.. there is another reason to change the duration as well.
Instead of running nominations and voting consecutively, we can run them at the same time. So while entering photos for the next competition, users can vote for the old one. This way, we can promote *both* events through the newsletter, hopefully boosting the number of voters as well as the number of entries.
Christmas & New Years seemed a logical time to make the change, because things are considerably quieter around this time. Would have been hard to get enough votes to be meaningful.
