As a result of a Site Council investigation and deliberation, a member of the site has had all of his challenge entries disqualified, and the results of the challenges to which that member entered have been recalculated. If you notice a shift up in your placement in any challenges, this is the reason why.

The member was found to have repeatedly and deliberately submitted an overwhelming number of challenge entries that were taken before the challenge dates. We do not wish to drag this person through the mud, but we did want to make a public announcement for those affected by the recalculation. We stand behind a strict policy of preserving the integrity of the site, and cheating cannot be tolerated.

Thanks for your understanding...

Edit: If I may, I'd also like to ask that if you know the identity of this person that you not disclose it. It is not our goal to start a discussion of the member personally.

Wow, At Rest... that far back? I only noticed two of my recent entries, Motiv poster from 40th to 39th and On the Edge from 20th to 19th.

Great job SC, you're working hard!

Edit: Oh I know why, most of my other entries were at the bottom of the pile anyways... :)

You should probably ban the person also if they cheated continuously for that long. Oh well, good to know that the integrety of the site is strictly enforced like this. Good job!

The user recieved a suspension to which we thought was appropriate.

Call me naive, but I think that the overwhelming amount of photographers here DO follow the rules and make it fun for all involved. Thanks to our Site Council and Admins for taking care of the few who don't, and thanks to the rest of you for keeping the rules and keeping this a fun, worthwhile, exciting place to hang out!

My thanks and appreciation to the Site Council. This site has soo much to offer… especially integrity! I'm proud to be part of this community and share it with friends and family.
