Lost Winner Emblem


An April 2nd Place Winner emblem for my image "Wild Cat" has been replaced by a Finalist emblem that was accidently resubmitted to the July contest when I tried to change it to my self portrait. I didn't intentionally resubmit the image. There seems to be some kind of glitch on BPs end. I know of one other member this happened to in July. I sent an e-mail to BP about this. Has anyone else ever had this problem? Did you ever get the winner emblem back?

  Sam, yes it's happened of a couple of people! It had been a 2nd place win and then it had a finalist badge. The person contacted BP and it was corrected! ANother person had a First Place win here it is. Its 1st place flowers:

  Thanks for asking this Sam. I did contact BP on changing mine. My image was also entered into the contest when I tried changing my self pic. I did not enter it intentionally either.

  It doesn't look like they replaced the finalist emblem for the image Jessica mentioned, but it still appears under winners for the month it won. My image still appears in 2nd place winners for April, too. I would like to have my emblem back, since it's my only winner I have.

What?!! I can't believe you only have one winner, Sam! Do you do many resubmits? If not, you should, because you should have many more winners than that!

  Thanks Colleen & Jessica - just one winner. I've started doing some resubmits.
