Last night, right after the challenge had ended, I browsed quickly through the thumbnails. As I did so, I swear I saw a sumbission titled "Hot chick having sex." I couldn't see the thumbnail picture (it showed up as a red "X" at the time), but I was a little shocked to see that title. Today, however, there is no such picture. Did anyone else see this last night?

Admin, maybe you can help on this one?

Maybe you got your browser sessions mixed up ? ;)

You were not seeing things. It was there but as a x.

I'm not one of the admin's, but I did see that also; and saw about three other titles with no picture to match. Maybe these were the trolls of the week.

Maybe it was someone's Peeps setup for the Fauna challenge, after the lights had been on too long...

We still haven't heard from anyone who can explain what happened there. Was the site hacked? Drew? Anyone?

I saw it too. There was actually 3 photos coming up with the little red x. I sent a message to Drew, who corrected the problem. I still have no clue what the 3 photos were but he did respond to my message telling me it was a problem that is now fixed.

Drew?

LOL! :-)

"DP" Challenge has a different meaning on other websites.....

Or maybe the person is doing an "interpretation" of a woman's flower :)

I also saw this and made the assessment, mainly from the titles, that they were fauna submissions. And were tagged (or something) to be removed or moved to the other challenge. ???? Just a logical guess

I'm bumping this topic because I'm still curious to hear from site admin what really happened. Although our speculation is probably more interesting than the truth (it usually is).

The little x in a small box is actually something that was not recognised by the browser, unreadable format...

Yeah, we know about what the "x" is, but we want to know where those pictures (like "Hot chick having sex") that didn't show up came from originally and where did they go?

Most probably obscene photos removed by the administrator....but
I do recall voting on a flora photo in the Fauna challenge. We'll never gonna know...Drew...

and a fungi photo in the flora... It'll probably beat my native flora entry though, with the kind of scores I've been getting lately! They wouldn't dq a photo for being off topic.. I've seen many, and that's not a dq factor. It was likely what the title called it.

Until I read different in the forum I thought funghi was flora. It is likely the photographer thought the same. Keep in mind that this is just a fun challenge and not a biology exam (thank god!)
