Same photo twice in this month's photo competition

Travel Forums System Talk Same photo twice in this month's photo competition

It seems my picture from morocco is up for voting in this months photo competition twice! I accept that I am silly enough to upload the same photo twice (as I have to do them one at a time and sometimes forget which ones I've already done...) but I don't think I tagged 2 of the same pics twice for the competition!

Could one of them maybe be removed please to avoid confusion? (and if it has gotten any votes, I wouldn't object to the votes being added to the other one's total! )

Ok sorted. There were a few votes on the photo, but they all fell on the same one, so no need to do a complicated merge even :)

By the way, you could also have deleted the photo to remove it from the competition. The only thing would be fixing the vote issue!

If I remember correctly, this happened before right?
I seem to recall that somehow you uploaded a photo again but then added the right tags, instead of just tagging the one already uploaded. Maybe because the latter one was not featured?
I guess it's not that much work to check before which photo's of you are featured (it's at the bottom of your photo page) and either tag those right or if you have other photos which you think are good, upload them and they will probably be featured.

Just a tip...;)

O, by the way Peter: is there a way that on the main page a banner with a link to the photo competition/voting system could be added. Somehow I never seem to get this on the main page, or just sometimes it pops up. Very confusing.

Quoting Peter

Ok sorted.

Thank you! :)

Yes and no- I had a photo which was featured, but I took it off to set the horizon straight (on-going problem- my horizons are crooked) and you spotted it again and re-featured it :)

Thanks, cheeky Utrecht ;) but I uploaded both before either was featured, hence the confusion. I need to get a computer where I can bulk-load! And maybe the photo moderators should check through the pics a bit faster! ha ha ha!
