    Members could PM one another, or even send each other e-mail messages so as to inform one another of the number of their photo. How could you tell if this were the case?

    We can't. However we do what we can to make things even and fair. The only option to keep members from never cheating would be to not have the contest at all.

    I've copy/pasted this sentence from the contest thread:

    Voting will be from 10/15/15 until midnight Pacific time 10/22/15. (One week)

    That means voting will be cut off at midnight tomorrow night Pacific time. I'm on Pacific time, and right now it is 6:43p

    The thread was posted on the 14th but people had a day to ensure that their picture was in one of the two posts of pictures. Voting started the 15th.
