The idea of allowing picture posts in the MSA thread is to increase participation so that members who do not have privileges to the gallery can also post their photos for the MSA. This is all for fun. I understand that judging can be a little tricky, but there are ways to get around that.
I feel that too much complaining every month spoils the fun for everyone. If you don't like the rules, don't play the game. Quite simple, as I see it.
Thanks to John for keeping this going, and to all who have participated and have been "victims" so far. I hope to have something to submit for this assignment.
Good luck to all!
