RossAndrew, I agree.

If hosts do not want previously used/entered pictures to be used in their challenge, that is well and good, but putting a restriction on the date when a picture was taken is very prohibitive for many of the entrants for many reasons, one of which you mentioned.

The date restriction rule also causes another problem: those who will cheat and alter the date the picture was taken, will alter the date and enter the picture; however, the honest ones who will are unwilling to change the date just to be able to enter the challenge will be restricted by their honesty.

(Therefore, the date rule only restricts the honest people from entering.
The date rule only applies to the honest amongs us.
That is not fair).
