I'll stay incognita from now on ;-)

Something amusing that I've just noticed, and don't think I've seen anyone else mention. Accidentally clicked on Panamon's sticky thread at the top of the Games forum making a formal 'announcement' of the start of The Contest.

The 'Contest' was first announced on Panormaio by Eduardo on April 1 of last year: April Fools Day!!!

Some April Fools' joke, Bitsy. :(

Thanks for the VOTES, everyone! If this stop sign made it into the winners, now that would be funny! (I only wonder how long it would last.)

I've voted, Jessica.

By the way: I think your protest has caused something. Today I sent 2 comments within 1 minute, and received this message. Spammers won't be happy with that.

Jessica G. on March 9, 2009

Thank you, Norrel.

Eduardo has put an announcement about the new one-minute rule in the Forum. It's intended to reduce spam, but so far most users (not spammers) haven't been pleased with having their commenting limited.

Has anyone noticed a slowdown in the SPAMing?

Jessica G. on March 9, 2009

Not much around here in the last few days. Do you think the time limit is working?

not1word on March 9, 2009

The timer's working on me. I keep getting told to slow down. Yeah, right.

Jurgis Karnavicius on March 11, 2009

You have my support Jessica! Thank you for this action!!! Greetings from Lithuania, Jurgis

PS: I don't think 1 minute rule helps, the best solution would be no contest anymore.

I'm happy to hear that, Kietzi63! Maybe it's working after all!

Thanks for the vote, lacavale55. :)

Try Google Image Search with the words "stop spam panoramio". This photo is now visible to the whole world. Good work.

Greeting from Denmark, Allan
