Hi!

The rules about previous screenshots- screenshots from previous competitions cannot be used. For example, if you had 5-10 uploads for contest #65, and one or two of them fit the theme for contest #90, we do not want (edit: the same) screenshots submitted for a 2nd time.

While the competition is active/ongoing, you can upload and share as many new screenshots as you would like on Steam. All screenshots published in that week will be considered eligible for that contest so long as they follow the terms (So if the theme is 1930s, we will not be considering modern equipment, that kind of thing).

Re: Popularity contest- Yes, there are a dozen individuals who fairly routinely end up in the top 3, it has not escaped notice. We do have a few comments though-
-- While some weeks these artists receive even 100's++ upvotes for 1st place, there are other weeks where the "by-vote" podium is readily accessible, typically requiring 5-10 votes to secure a spo... Read more
