There is a diminishing amount of members in the DPR forum who are willing to use their valuable spare time to perform the ungrateful task as a non paid, voluntary host.

Please let the hosts perform their task without the eternal complaining about everything possible, (from DQ pictures to unclear responses up to challenge themes that aren't PC enough for some members).

Please remember that the host is the sole judge to decide if a picture fulfills the rules the host himself/herself has set up, not the entrants. Also in unclear case or even if the host is seemingly wrong in his judgement his verdict stands. As a member stated in another thread: "The bottom line is that if a host believes their rules have been broken they are fully entitled to disqualify an entry". Not much to add to that.

Agree with that Jahn.

The hosts are not perfect in interpreting and applying their own rules, no one can be.  I simply ask for consistency as the main attribute.

And no one is defending bad behaviour.  But make sure that the complaint is valid before airing it.
