No. you're not missing anything. Every Photo contest is the same. Some folks don't read the rules or pay attention to the theme. They just post whatever they think is close enough (or don't care if it is).

It's up to the OP to moderate the entries as they see fit (or not).
Yup, every month has photos that aren't even close to the theme, some that are a modest attempt, and some that actually follow it. The OP should post the photos they feel are acceptable in the voting poll. No harm in posting extra photos in the entry thread. Just like posting old photos. Every month at least one archive photo is posted. The point is to get out and take some pics, but it doesn't hurt anything to have the old shots posted. Some of them are darn good pics.

Take my photo for example. I used mountains, since I have no sky scrapers around me, and no parking garages. Probably not even close to the theme but it's the most elevated shot I've got. I don't really expect the OP to use a shot like that, but it still looks good, and keeps the tread active. Half the time I'll post a pic that loosely fits the theme, just to remind myself about the thread. Then I'll update and/or replace the shot with my actual entry. Not likely to happen this month though unless you count a corn silo as a "skyscraper". Ha ha.

In some parts of the country, a corn silo is a skyscraper!!

Yeah me too. I generally try to get my "reminder" post at least close to the theme, so I was going for a focus on the sky too.

I'm afraid I don't understand your post. Your car was posted on the front page of which post? I just looked at the September voting contest and it's still there. What is it that you think is going on? I'm confused...:confused:

Ddaddy I won September voting contest correct? Why hasn't my car been posted on the main page like the the others on charger forums.com like other winners for other month. My car wasn't in the spotlight it's just not right. I won fair and square to be feature member of the month with my photos on the main page of the charger forums.com

I was confused too. I think I understand the question now though. The photo contest cars aren't posted on the main page of the forum. This line of threads has always been just for fun, and an excuse to take/post pictures. Nothing against your car, your photo or anything personal. Just not the way they get the photos for the forum main page.

Are you talking about the main page of the forums with the three cars in the banner? If not can you supply the link to which page your talking about?


Ok, I think I see what your referring to:
ROTM: http://www.chargerforums.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=202

monthly photo contest:
http://www.chargerforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=159165

Two different photo contests.
Am I correct?
