Generating new interest in photo challenges

It has been brought to my attention that the volume of entries to photo challenges here is not what it used to be! Therefore I am proposing that we relax one of the main conditions and that is the restriction of eligible images to those that have been posted on the e-group photo gallery.

I realise that the gallery is quite out of date and there are so many external alternatives. The gallery is not too difficult to use once you get used to it but I know some members haven't managed to get over that learning curve.

Sadly, I have not yet found an alternative gallery that integrates with the forum. So my proposal is that starting from the next challenge we allow images to be entered that are hosted on external sites like Flickr, Photobucket, Google Photos, etc. The original e-group gallery is not going away and of course entries using the gallery will be accepted as usual.

I do hope that this change will be welcome!

Ian
