Why can't people resist the urge to comment on competition entries until AFTER the competition has been judged. I have withdrawn my image from the competition "People at work" because it has been commented on.

Any comments spotted are removed, but the rule is that we don't comment until the judging is over.
Best regards, John

I've removed my entry John. The person who commented has been a member long enough to know the rules so I could not see any reason for the comment.

Well it's all gone now, so we'll never know what was said that caused you to want to remove the entry. A useful reminder though that we should hold off comments until the judge has done the judging.
Best regards, John

The comment was regards a feature of one of the characters which would draw attention to the hair. I can either post another image or just ignore the competition until next week.

Are you suggesting they should stop entering too?

If it's always the same people, or seems that way, then rise to the challenge and give them a run for their money. That's what competition is - and you have to enter to win.

Yes, one can't expect to win a competition one hasn't entered, other than lottery scams!

If everyone thought like you there wouldn't be any entries and therefore no competitions

I am the person who commented.
And I have apologised directly to Stan....
but, despite having been a member for a long time, sorry, I did not know that that was a rule.
The only rules I was aware of were to do with camera types...
and the monthly having to be shot during the month!
Mea culpa!
Sorry folks...

And, in response to stu62:
As John has said....
"You have to compete to win it"....
or get "the coveted second place"....
and michaelblue has put it very succinctly!
And, compared with the lottery.... entering one of these competitions doesn't cost a penny!!
Never be afraid to talk about your techniques...

the same camera, lens and scene...
and you'll always get a thousand different takes!!"

And I have read the rules before... I can see nothing about leaving comments.... there is a vague comment about discussion needing to be on the thread for the competition [if started].... but naught else!!

Please don't post comments in the actual competitions area until the judge has judged. After that, comment away! Likewise, after entries start to come in the judge should answer no more questions in the discussion thread. It would be unfair for further clarification to be made after anyone had already committed to their entry.

Nonetheless, it is there, quoted above.
Best regards, John
