I just got this message in an email from DPC:

We regret to inform you that your submission to the Free Study 2009-03 challenge has been disqualified for the following reason:

You may not use the same original image in more than one challenge.

Your entry has been reviewed by the Site Council and/or Administrators, who have confirmed that your submission must be disqualified.

Thank you for your continued participation in DPChallenge, and please do not let this deter you from submitting photographs for future challenges!

Shocking for about .03 seconds, then huge laughter! April Fools! (better be :-))

took me about 19 seconds. Very funny ... finally someone pulled something on me .. now I can go to bed! ;P

Ok, I got taken as well. I had already fired off an e-mail about the erroneous DQ and then I checked the site to see my entry was not DQ'd and found this thread.

Good one.

I would be honored if someone paid enough attention to my entries to disqualify me in the first place. :)

Langdon or someone on the SC is checking the admin e-mail and laughing their butt off right now.

I am so glad I read this thread before getting my mail. I got one too LOL

The list continues, and the language I used in my reply.
(Its amazing that the spell check picked up the typos in those words.)
04/01/2009 11:31:38 PM · #11
omg...what a dumbass i am...i just replied to the email..lmao...good one langdon!!!
04/01/2009 11:32:23 PM · #12
I got caught also--should have checked for this thread first...

You know what would've messed with users even more? Sending out "your image has been disqualified" for challenges that users never entered.

I'd love to read some of the replies, lol!

If anyone here sent a serious reply, care to share it with the rest of us for a chuckle?

This is the one I got! LOL

"We regret to inform you that your submission to the Free Study 2009-03 challenge has been disqualified for the following reason:

You may not use ANY editing tool to move, remove or duplicate any element of your photograph that would change a typical viewer's description of the photograph (aside from color), even if the tool is otherwise legal, and regardless of whether you intended the change when the photograph was taken.

Your entry has been reviewed by the Site Council and/or Administrators, who have confirmed that your submission must be disqualified.

Here is what I sent back to admin@... during that .03 seconds of horror:

Um WHAT! I've never used that image in anything before!

Oh.... Aprils Fools! HAHAHA!

Afterthought, if we all send replies to disregard our previous messages, can we crash his server? :)

Would have been funny too if they'd "hidden" the image for the scores list.
04/01/2009 11:45:50 PM · #21
This was my reply to my disqualification:

"And I thought I could fool the everwise SC...
BTW, can you please also disqualify all votes below 5 on that image there too? That would be much appreciated!
Thank you,"

Who knows, they might take it seriously... lol
04/01/2009 11:50:29 PM · #22
Too funny!

This could go on for a few days for those who don't check email regularly!

I got this email:

And this was MY response:
You have not seen my original jpeg. Please tell me what you're talking about. I did not use any lens flare (I don't even know what that is) or motion. The original image is attached.
Please explain. This is really disheartening.

I still can't believe I didn't check the threads before I got all bothered.
And I'm still trying to decide whether I think this was funny.

See here.

Got a DQ message as well (Blackberry is always near by)… immediately sent ticket to SC asking for a clarification… Suggest: log out and check is your entry in the challenge?
Guess will know if it’s serious or not in less than 10 min.
