The suggestions I made for some rules changes were made to help run the contest easier, not to make it a more problemed contest. Being able to conteact members in more than one way is just that. With the problems we've had with people not being able to get back on, Jim included and him running the contest, we would all be sitting here waiting to see what happened in the contest, no one would know? Posting your birds in your Team Area, is almost a must, if you want your bird counted. We had a few birds posted just in the General Area and not in your teams area, so someone trying to figure out who took birds and what team they were on, it's difficult if you have to search the complete site trying to find if someone posted their birds on it. A Score Card is also very important, that way we know who's on what team and if they took a bird that year? We had a few guys post bird pics of birds they took on the site, but were they on a team? It save a lot of trouble in the end when figuring the final team scores out. All I was doing is trying to make the contest easier, not trying to make it difficult and less fun, just easier, the simpler it is the more fun it is!!!
