In reply to:

Buzz Lightyear: I see "savonie" has been busy trying to discredit some of the entries that are "training" aircraft, rather than official "fighter" planes. However, he (or she) has not even made comment on a few entries that are WW I trainers, or a couple that could be trainers, but are not identified - or identifiable - by just what can be seen in the photo. Perhaps it would be helpful if the real host makes a ruling here. Are military training aircraft allowed in this challenge?

I am not 'discrediting' in anyway the entries that are training aircraft - Just observing the rules - I cannot comment on WWI aircraft as they are not of interest to me - I only comment on what I know-

I'm not positive but I think it may be one of their Dassault Falcon 20s -

On Container Cargo Ship challenge (3 comments in total)

While there are some fine shots a great many of these aren't 'container ships' -
Is the challenge for 'container' as well as 'cargo' ships? Container ships are very different from tankers and bulkers etc- Perhaps I am misled by the challenge title-

The Chess Board is set up incorrectly - I know I know it doesn't matter for the sake of a photo-

On Commercial Vessels challenge (25 comments in total)

I only read the comments after the challenge c loses to see what people think-
To add rules to the comments section is crazy - My fishtug was dq'd after the fact- However a few tugs are still entered- When the organizer of the challenge doesn't appear to have a clue how can we?

On UIVER (predecessor of the DAKOTA) in the Oldies but goldies challenge (1 comment in total)

The DC-3 also had 'square' windows-
The DC-4 had 'oval' windows-
However a nice pic of an old beauty

Chess board is setup incorrectly-
Lower right hand square should be white(or the lightest color)
