Changing the rules
Jan 12, 2013

I know a host can do with a challenge what they want, but changing the rules halfway through is not only unfair to those who have already submitted an entry and can in fact change the whole feel or meaning of the challenge when it comes to voting.

Case in point is "A story behind: Friends" challenge.

The host very clearly states in the rules "must have two humans"  and then because some people didn't read the rules and the host was too shy to DQ the entries claims in the discussion under the challenge

"Im sorry I wasn't very clear.. it can be any two living things"

Suddenly the whole challenge changes and instead of people interacting we have ducks, dogs, birds and even bees.

I'm sorry but in my thinking this type of hosting is appalling.  Thoughts ...
