On an ANONYMOUS challenge, showing the name of the participant breaks the anonymity.

I don't see where this challenge is an anonymous challenge.

That is very unethical. That is C H E A T I N G, especially when you have family and friends that can help you with the 5.0 stars.

And they wouldn't be able to help without the watermark? The submitter is clearly visible for this entry. It would be visible with or without a watermark. The submitter could email his friends/relatives a small photo of the picture with no watermark. Who needs a watermark to identify a picture when you have a thumbnail?

I must be missing something.

Oh, finally, back when the Canon DSLR challenge was still ongoing, for a significant number of the regulars, it was usually possible to tell which pictures were shot by whom, just because they had developed a distinctive style.
