1 - I like but could be hard to get people to send me pics of themselves before vote time. Sometimes it is hard enough to get the pic AFTER the win and all you winners know I start nagging BEFORE the contest is over
OR we could change the pic rule to that you have to have a pic of yourself in the gallery to be eligible.
Again, the problem is many don't take the time to read the rules, understand them, let alone comply. I am not a babysitter, I am a person who puts in 40 hours a week at a job then spends my free time here doing this. I won't spend the time tracking down pictures, members need to be responsible to the rules or risk getting left out.
2 - That would be a pain to do, so no. Sorry
