One of my images was #7 for the day in its category and is locked for re-submission. But there were only 42 images submitted, so that would not put it in the top 5%, but more like 16%. When I hover over the buttons it says images in the top 5% blah blah, but are the actual rules different?

Hello Felicia, can you please post link to image in question?

If your image was on #7 place it should get #7 place award, and images that have 5% or better award (so all places awards are included) can't be deleted or resubmitted by user.

7 is not in the top 5% of 42. But I just realized that maybe some people deleted or re-submitted their images, so maybe there were originally more than 42?

Felicia, we award top 20% of images submitted. Images on top 10 places will be awarded if there are at least number of images in category for top places images to be awarded (for all 10 place award there has to be at least 50 images submitted).

As example, if in category were 42 images (as in your case) top 8 places would be awarded (places 1-8), #9 and #10 place would not be awarded since there were not enough images submitted. Also top 5%, top 10% and top 20% would not be awarded in this case.

Place awards (#1 to #10 place) are higher then 5% award, 5% award is higher then 10% award, 10% award is higher then 20% award, and 20% award is higher then Rising star award.

We don't allow images that won 5% or better awards (that means awards that have 5% designation, as well as awards for top 10 places - #1 to #10 place) to be resubmitted or deleted by user - if you would like such action please send e-mail to report team.

Since your image won #7 place award (which is better then 5% award) you can't delete it or resubmit it yourself.

Please let me know if this doesn't help.
