        Surely it was 10 posts and 5 photos?

          In the new rules it says that the draw will be first week of October, should say November. Does this mean our September uploads are void?

            That's a typo I think - but as we did start this whole process I will count uploads and posts in September as well - it's only fair, but I hope you will continue to joining in here this month!

              Normally, if you are a new member you need to have made 6 forum message posts before being able to post URL links in your posts. To be able to display photos in your forum posts you need to use a URL. This is to dissuade spammers. I may well suspend this restriction during October as it will inevitably confuse new members.

                Just to clarify - this initiative is not simply to attract new members but to get existing members re-involved if they aren't already

                  I am a regular, though usually only put up shots in the gallery for forum posts. I have already commented and posted this week. I do like to get interaction so am very happy with your promotion. The more the merrier.

                    I am now completely baffled if this was to encourage newbies or non posters like me perhaps a definitive answer is needed

                        The bottom line is that we want to boost the use of this forum and the attached gallery system. This means persuading existing members to revisit again or more often and to inject new blood in the form of new members, like yourself

                        But the bottom line is - rev-up the forum and galleries here!

                          But how much use would she get of it!

                            An encouraging start - 50% increase in members visiting over the day previously.

                              I love my XZ-1 but wouldn't mind winning this.
