soo, I have been trawling through my pictures of Tinks and Davey and am facing some tough decisions.  lots of my pics are in the same classes the majority of times - either being lolcats or cat positions.  are there limits on how many different pictures you can submit to each class? I think I read this somewhere about you being able to submit as many as you like but I don't remember if it was about submitting different pics or the same pic into different classes?  sooooooo difficult but hopefully Rosella will be pleased to know that I have been renaming the pics I've definitely decided to use for your convenience :) 

Can't begin to say how happy I am to be getting queries as it means that pics are on their way .....  :wooooo:   I soooo understand about it being difficult to choose between pics.  I feel that I've already been through a cat show already trying to choose amongst the hundreds (or is it thousands) that I have on this PC.  Thanks so much for namin em  :hug:

You can submit as many different pics as ya like in same class or same pics in different classes  :) however .... whispas...... bear in mind it's best to spread pics amongst as many classes as poss as otherwise your pics are competing against each other in 1st round  ;)

from help pages on fb

I've been sending out information for my Group/Event but now I’m being warned for spamming. Is there a way I can inform my friends of the Group/Event I have created?
Spamming is the abuse of electronic messaging systems to indiscriminately send unsolicited bulk messages. While you may not have been purposely trying to commercially solicit other users, repeatedly sending the same message or making the same post is a violation of Facebook’s Terms of Use and is considered a very serious offense.

To protect our users from spam and other unsolicited commercial messages, Facebook has imposed stringent guidelines that flag when a user repeatedly sends or posts the same message, even if you were simply trying to organize a group or event.

Facebook has several recommended alternatives that can ensure these situations don’t arise again. If you were trying to organize an event and were sending out all of the information in messages, we suggest you create a Facebook Event by going to the Events page and then clicking "Create an Event." You can then fill in all the necessary information for the event and invite all your friends using the invite feature within the event. You can also utilize the "Message All" feature, which allows you to message all guests that have RSVP’d ‘yes’ to the event.

If you were trying to promote your group by posting a link to join it in a message, on a wall, or in a discussion board, this can be construed as spam. We suggest making your friends administrators of this group so that they can invite their friends using the Invite functionality built into the group. You can do this by clicking on "Edit Group Members" and then on "make admin" next to the users’ names. Each admin can invite his/her own friends to the group.

I bin asked about "what if peeps want to enter videos of pusscats but videos over 30 secs long".....

I would very much like to encourage entries in the video class especially as it's a teeny weeny bit more complicated for peeps to enter a video rather than a pic.  I am therefore inclined to be lenient (OK so I iz a pusshhh ovver  ;)) and suggest a max of 30 secs as a guide (due to average person's attention span) rather than a fixed period of time. 

Do so hope this doesn't mess anyone about and take this opportunity to remind peeps that entries can be sent to me from this Saturday!   :shocked:

I know! Where does the time go?  I'll be posting final instructions tomorrow .... stay tooned ...............  :)

If anyone is thinking their pics aren't suitable for the show as they weren't taken on a £3000 camera, think again  :naughty:

Here you can see last years winners so as you can see you don't need magazine quality, picture perfect shots - a quick snap of your cat is purrrrfect...

I have bene snapping every chance i get and i thin ki know how our Helen gets such good pics .... I fink she goes mad at snapping while cats are in action to be the great pics she does. so i had a go taking loads in one go  and i got a good one of Marl .... it's quite scary  :scared: :scared:  :evillaugh:

That's exactly what I do, take 50 odd pics of one play session. I normally end up with one or two good pics but my problem is I can't delete the rubbish ones - hence why I have over 13,000 images (not just of Lukey & Riley I hasten to add  :naughty:) on my PC  :Crazy:

Will have to sort through for pics to enter when I get a spare 24 hours  :evillaugh:

In the certain knowledge that I won't have time, when I'm inundated with all the Cat Show entries from 23 April, I started sorting through a few of our pics at the weekend.  A bit like our own little show really. 

Amazingly I've already been able to whittle down our possible entries to 98 and am hopeful of whittling it down even further .....   :innocent:  :heeee heeee:
