Now that I know what went down I'm extremely disappointed.  When the best moderator we've ever had quits while standing up for his and this contests integrity and sense of fair play you have to be saddened by the turn of events.

The contest lost in a big way and has been weakened considerably.

Again, thank you David for all you've done.  I personally back your decision to leave 100% and applaud you for standing up for you and the contest's integrity.  Well done Sir.

Rule amendment time?? can we post submissions?
4. Any MM member may cast ONE vote per competition, but competitors may not vote for themselves, or solicite by any means, votes for themselves or for any competitor (vote stacking). If a contest administrator suspects vote stacking has occurred, either by the entrant, or by anyone who favors the entrant, the entry in question will be disqualified.
This is not a popularity contest so let's keep the playing field level and the competition clean.

Ought to be another rule much needed - a beginning vote time to give entrants a chance to post prior to voting.

As for the hullabaloo in the last day or so,
Please G-D, protect us from those who would protect us from ourselves®.

Sorry you are disappointed with me, I'll try to do better in the future.  I voted for exactly who I wanted to when I wanted to, without breaking any rule.  If I did do something wrong, and David decides he will stay and moderate a bit longer and decides to punish me, I will admit my wrongdoing and abide by his punishment without appealing to the site moderators for leniency.

LOL...a mere inconvenience. After all, I am totally not, never dissapointed in you- just in your waaaay too early vote that might, might be a discouragement for others entering the contest at a reasonably early time.
My $2  bill.

As to your accepting and seemingly desiring a punishment from David H (!) , I agree that the MOD situation here on MM is outta hand.
Then again, they bring the ball, so, they say if you wanna play and use our ball you must accept our Victorian and otherwise unfair rules of play. Or, pickup your glove and go home.

...and abide by his punishment without appealing to the site moderators for leniency. This is the essence of what's not working. We have a contest administrator. He does everything to keep the contest on track.

And we have Mods to protect the site. Keep that pesky bloodwork and nip slips out of sight of the kiddies. Someone needs to stick to doing their assigned duties and not interfere with the contests orderly progression.

point to the contest Admin. A DQ is not a stake thru the heart, come back tomorrow and enter again. And if you still don't win - GO OUT & SHOOT SOMETHING! It's a foto contest where your peers select who gets the token. (CAM is like the supremes picking the president!)
