I've been thinking about the six month rule. Isn't that a long time to exclude someone? It'd be one thing if we had some sort of prize for this or something, but basically your reward for putting up the best photo in a given month is to get to sit on your hands for six months. There's no question in my mind that a one month break is mandatory, obviously you should not be able to enter on a theme you came up with. I would even go so far as to say that the month after that you should be out in the interest of promoting a variety of winners, but unless we start having prizes or it becomes obvious that three people are winning on a rotating basis that there's no good reason to have to wait so long after winning.
