Crikey! Host, Does this mean we all move up a couple of places, which would make me 4th?

I think you : https://www.dpreview.com/challenges/Entry.aspx?ID=1063220&View=Results&Rows=25  ...

should move up to the 3th place , because the 1st place entry doesn't have exif data :

https://www.dpreview.com/challenges/Entry.aspx?ID=1063052&View=Results&Rows=25

...

- so , it doesn't comply with the rule : "Please ensure the exif information is intact. Entries without exif will be DQ'd "... But , it's too late to complain ,  as the challenge's host stated : "Any complaints must be made BEFORE voting starts. Once voting starts, complaints will NOT be entertained."

What is the matter with these people?

Maybe it's the matter of the host wish : "Have fun guys" ...

Hi there...

I am the challenge host. Thanks for bringing this to my attention. Us hosts rely on you folks to help us DQ photos that are not complying with rules. Please let us know in time when you come across something like this. I have DQ'd the photos, but as you can see, it doesn't impact placement once the challenge finishes. We need to DQ them before results are announced.

Thanks,

Yes, I noticed that a while back. You certainly know how to take a picture so you could be a perfect substitute for RuthC. In my opinion you should apply but I am not the arbiter of your time so it is easy for me say.

I've stopped participation in challenges as a protest ,  because DPreview Admins promises regarding a "reform" of the challenges system - never materialized. So , from my side : no submissions , no votes , no hosting ... just boycott.
