Three images in contest I'm judging were never submitted by me

How do three images I recently posted in the daily contest end up in the "promoted contest" I'm judging, "Flippers and Fins?" I did not post them nor would I post images in any contest I'm judging, whether the winners are selected by me or Pixoto members. I have dq'd them, but I must say, however they got there, probably through a glitch in the contest protocol, doesn't cast a very favorable light on my integrity.

Hi John, did you maybe try to enter those images in different contest but accidentally uploaded them to contest you are judging?

It happened to me once when I had too much windows opened and I click on wrong one thinking it was correct contest.

No, Jasenka. I submitted all three to the daily contest in Animals for the 29th. One received an award for that day, one has been resubmitted for today's contest, and one I pulled because it didn't get the votes I felt it would get. Anyway, I have dq'd them, so that is the end of that. Was just curious how they got there in the first place.
