Thanks for clearing that up, Brian. Perhaps the posts arrived out of order 
Have you given any consideration to perhaps expanding the star system for 
the judges or expanding the mechanism for comment into
threads to stimulate interest/discussion? I don't know if either idea is 
feasible or practical.

Subject: [Leica] themes

There are five really excellent pictures entered already in this month's 
Last month we had an awful situation in which someone felt compelled to 
remove a high-quality entry from the contest because he felt
it was not in keeping with the theme. I don't want that to happen.

I think that from now on the theme has to be declared the instant that the 
contest is open.

So here's what I'm going to do: this month's contest has no theme, and from 
now on each month's contest, starting with the December
2006, will have a stated theme from the moment it opens. Sometimes the 
themes will be very broad, such as "red".  Sometimes they
will be very abstract. It will always be OK to submit a picture that does 
not have anything to do with the theme, but this month I
don't want to retroactively declare a theme.
