At first, I thought of telling you the host has very few tools provided by DPR to set up challenges, but they do have a capture date rule check and an entry limit cap. That's about it. DPR came up with it, and if they figure out a way to really check, I'd use it more frequently, just for the fun of having a limit for people to work with.

The capture date rule lowers the bar on quality. It's a handicap on everyone and you were not handicapped in that still life challenge. Of course a well done entry pulled from your library of best shots will rise to the top. You had no competition.

You can't really expect anyone here to give you a thumbs up on cheating, can you?

And again, at first I thought this thread would be an honest discussion on the merit of that rule but your motive to validate your illegitimate 3rd place trophy negates it all.
