Re: New challenge host needs help !

I get the idea behind capture date "rules", but since exif data can be easily and quickly faked, my suggestion is put the capture date as a guideline in the challenge description and not as a rule you have no way of enforcing. Only the dumb cheaters might get caught.

If someone really wants to submit a photo outside of the capture date restriction they can easily do so without being detected.

How to fake exif data is common knowledge in my experience.

For example, here I have the same image with 3 different EXIF data.

Which, if any, of the 3 contain the original true exif data?

Feel free to download the images and look at the exif data.

EXIF 1

EXIF 2

EXIF 3
