Borders?

I've noticed numerous challenges requiring a border for all entered images.  This seems a bit strange; along with some of the challenge subjects ... True Blue American Male, for one example?  Why is a border considered a useful requirement for entry?  One wonders.

The 'border' requirement has kept me from entering a few challenges.

And the 1600pixels (although I understand the desire for that one).
Most of the time I am on DP is during my lunch break at work, so I used to enter challenges using images I had uploaded to Flickr without the ability to do any additional PP on them. Additionally, I use LR to process, and it is no trivial task to add a white border then, even if I was at home at the time.

But then again, I've only entered around 50 challenges and I stopped entering them a while ago (and removed my entries). So I guess the challenges aren't really aimed at me.

Why not?

I learned a new skill as a result of entering.

There is one Host with a challenge each week that requires borders, and his themes are a bit unusual.

These challenges are for world wide participation and not every challenge is intended to appeal to every user on DPR.

With more then a dozen challenges a week you should be able to find one that meets your requirements, if not, one wonders.

Some members of DP have been around long enough to know how unusual the whole thing is, that includes the Host himself.
