Congratulations, Nic!

This was the first time I've entered this particular competition but I'm unsure about a few things that don't appear in the "rules" at the top so please bear with me::oops:

1. The person setting the competition can also enter it - right?

2. Can people vote for their own entry?

3. Is the voting scored like this: 3 points for each #1 vote, two for #2 and 1 for #3?

Thanks!

Welcome aboard teekay.

Sorry, it appears some of the rules info has been truncated over the past few months/years. I went back several years and found this list of rules:
+++++++++++++++

This week's challenge is :
***************
Everyone can enter and everyone helps pick the winner.

You do not need to enter to vote. To vote, post your choice for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place.

Points will be 3 for 1st, 2 for 2nd and 1 for 3rd.

Places will be determined by the number

of overall points each photo receives.

Feel free to offer your reasons for your choices after the voting closes...not before.

*************** *******
To submit an entry, click Post Reply and put your Photo Name and Camera Model either in the Subject line, or in the body text of your entry.

Post until Tuesday at 12 noon GMT,

Thanks for the info and welcomes. Looking forward to entering future competitions - I may have to charge up the batteries in my old A95 and SX50 again.:-)

So "Do not vote for your own photo" is a real rule after all. I thought people were just behaving honorably on their own.
