I know it is not against this challenge rules,

So it isn't CHEAting . . . sorry but it is very, very simple. It's also not against the DPReview Challenge rules . . . but then nothing is because there aren't any DPReview Challenge rules . . . except for the Ts & Cs and according to Scott they are meaningless and can be ignored.

The very reason I said it's inferred/implied. Given the fact that DPR keeps the submitter(s) anonymous during the submission and voting stages, it's implied that anonymity is a requirement and desired condition of the challenge. Once again, DPR doesn't come right out and say it but infers it.

It is inferred,  I agree,  I have had the very same discussing with ConanFuji . . .  but running Challenges based on inference is not a good place to be at,  not for the Entrant, not for the Host and not for DPReview . . .   and what it means is that at the end of the day the benefit of doubt has to be given to the Entrant.

If something is made explicit there is no wriggle room and there is clarity for all to benefit from.

I know it would take thousands of Man hours and probably millions of $s to add some general DPReview Challenge rules . . .  but I think it just might be worth doing
