    Noobs can certainly BUY the calendar, but you are not allowed to vote.

    I was hoping to receive confirmation of my entry.
    But I'm willing to bet there were a lot of last minute entries.
    Putting it all together probably takes some time.
    Maybe it's a different voting this year?

    I wouldn't sweat it! If you sent it and it didn't come back...then you should be good! Also, Josh is tied up trying to improve a thing or two here, so he just might not have gotten back to you!

    Thank you:)
    I'm not worried, my reply was in reply to Jons post asking if anybody has heard from him.
    I was hoping to but am sure he's very busy with it all.

    Sorry N2 :(...... I guess mine was the right size because I didn't get that E-Mail! (also N2 it's because back then they didn't have all these iPods and iPhones n' such, so that's why photos were always 5 mega pixels or bigger)

    JD: what you were told was to just email a photo 5 megapixels or larger. We made the process MORE simple this year. With all the submissions we get, there's no way we can double check your work and get back to all of you for revisions.
