The chat challenge and resummitting
Dec 16, 2011

The first of my chat challenges here appears to draw some attention.

http://www.dpreview.com/challenges/Challenge.aspx?ID=5808

That's nice but it also introduces an unexpected side effect. Early comments may induce creators of pictures to improve their picture, withdraw the original one and submit the improved one.

As host I can follow that process but most unfortunately the comments made on the withdrawn entry are lost completely. I can't see them anymore.

I also can't ask participants to make new comments with the new entry. If they do, fine, but I can imagine that it's going to be quite tiresome, but I can't check anymore if everybody did indeed give their comments on the first entry, as required.

There is a range of possible reactions to this: All the way from -not permitting resubmissions and DQ if it happens anyway- to "who cares, it's all about the fun".

Thoughts?
