Anybody.....go to the leader board in children/babies and then to children portraits and tell me if you see something wrong......like about 6 images that are nearly duplicate. Let me know what you think.

Jason, is this allowed? Than I will open some files with hundred of almost the same pictures. One picture of the same spot/situation should be enough. If this is allowed the limit is nowhere. Please a reaction. This case was also mentioned yesterday in the forum.

You need to specify the time period - today - not so much of a problem - but this week has a number of similars.

The flower sub-category is far worse.

More reason to request a limit to the number of submissions per sub-category per day - frankly, the way I am feeling right now, it should be a maximum of 1 per sub-category per day.

I can see what is wrong: in at least 3 of those pictures, there is no evidence of any head-wear. We lose 60% of our body heat through our heads, and in wintry conditions, that could be very bad! :)

I've noticed the admins have been responding to a number of other issues in the past hour or so, but overlooked this one, and there are also no responses on similar posts.

That suggests one of a few things to me:

1) they have no answer
2) they don't care
3) they are actively condoning the submission of duplicates and similar images

In any case, I would suggest you either get over the fact that there are so many similar images to compete with and relish the occasions when you win, or do likewise and submit different crops of your most popular images.

Looks like the images were reported and deleted. I'm not seeing what you were seeing...

What Sandy was seeing was the - water lily/lotus / fruit in water / gerber / etc. phenomenon in the children's section ;)

Numerous photos of the same child - many with the same head gear and similar (but not identical) poses.

But numerous photos of the same child is allowed? Or have I misunderstood something?

But duplicates are not allowed. I think this is a duplicate:

Jane, we are not talking about the same child being photographed and posted, we are talking about the same image cropped different ways and posted and near identical images. The ones you have posted are correct....they are duplicate. So about 5 of these images need to be deleted.

Numerous photos of the same model/child/flower/dog/etc. are allowed - it just gets really boring for voting after a while, especially when a whole load of the same child wearing the same clothes and posing in similar ways are posted on the same day.

But there were some duplicates a few days ago (recrops or so similar as to be difficult to tell).

And yes, judging by the exif and the expression - those are some of the dups which didn't get picked up.

PS - Jane, I still love your cat (and your child models - presumably your children) despite the fact that I haven't a snowball's chance of winning against them LOL!
