    It has been brought to my attention that the RotM photo currently in first place has a political flag on the truck. I didn’t notice the flag when I accepted the photo, which I consider a big mistake on my part. I would not have accepted the photo if I did, regardless of the type of political...

    Archived QOL change for images in posts that are quoted

    This used to drive me crazy; if you quoted someone's post that had images in it, you wouldn't see the images in the quote box. That should be finally updated. Images should appear in all quoted posts, so you can actually tell what people are replying to.

    We had SO many this month. It results in a dilution of votes, essentially lowering everyone’s chance of making it to the top. Say there are 40 different members who voted in that thread so far. If those 40 members only had 10 photos to vote on, the outcome might be totally different. But is it...
