I missed the rule that stated all submissions and photos have to be from events that happen from January 2011 to January 2012. I looked and looked and I geuss I just missed that one can someone fill me in.
Mark, all blog submissions, must be from events that take place between January 16, 2011 to January 15, 2012. We discussed this very thing in a thread, but I guess I deleted it so that the Challenge forum didn\'t get too cluttered. I\'ll add it to the rules, just so there is no confusion later. :thumbup:

Im wondering if the rules as stated are the official final rules or will there be more added later . Just don\'t want any suprises.
Well, for starters, the contest is for fun....there\'s nothing \"official\" about it. In other words, it\'s just something to do.As I stated before, we discussed the blog entry thing in another thread, all the way up until the contest started on January 16th. My guess, is that you\'re the only one that didn\'t see it? I deleted the thread once the challenge was under way. Sorry, Mark. I had assumed that we were all on the same page in regard to the blog entries.

Let me clear this up so their is no confusion. I understand this is for fun but to say theirs nothing \'official about it kind of irks me. I tried to add some pics of my family to my blog of my kids and my wife with some deer as this is a outdoor site. I should have included them with my original post but didnt think to do it till later, the original blog post shows a pic of me with a deer I shot several years ago and was posted with no problem. I was informed that it couldnt be added because the pics were not taken between January 2011 and January 2012. I wasn\'t trying to pass them off as such just wanted to add as part of my intro so people could see who the people are I would be writing about . I realy was miffed that I was told they werent allowed. I went back and looked at the \"official\' rules and didnt see anything that would have you believe they couldnt be added. Now they are on the \"official rules\" So I questioned rather or not those were the final \"official rules\". I\'m sorry Dena if you got offended but I asked you to call me so we wouldnt be doing this in the forum but you havn\'t done that. I have always been friend with you and hope we can continue to be friends. I dont have that much spare time on my hands but thought this may be a fun thing to try and do and was going to try and find time to make a interesting blog for people to follow, just for the fun of it. I realy don\'t care if I win this thing or not. I don\'t need the aggravation so with that I respectfully withdraw from the competition.I am including the pics I tried to add earlier for all to see. I hope the best to all of you good luck I will be following this myself. Now I hope we are all on the same page. post-51-139589292302_thumb.jpg post-51-139589292304_thumb.jpg post-51-139589292307_thumb.jpg

Well, I\'m a wee bit irked at the moment now, too.First of all, exactly when did you tell me to call you? I must have missed that. I mean, I went back and read your email, your posts here, and there weren\'t any U2U\'s from you either. I\'m a little confused.Secondly, like I\'ve said three times now...we had an open discussion about all submissions being of current events between January 16, 2011 and January 15, 2012. I\'m sorry that you never saw it. I allowed the pic of you in your first entry, since it was more or less a bio of who you are. I\'d also like to add, that I sent you an EMAIL, explaining all of this stuff to you when you sent me the pics and short story of your family from deer season. Why couldn\'t you have responded there instead of here? Third, well, I\'m just at a loss right now, so I\'m going to stop right here.
