  I agree with you, Pat. I noticed this "generosity" a while ago. Even some really mediocre images get EP's. I do not know what is better: 25% or 95%. I prefer a happy medium. But after all it's a Season of Giving. So may be this explains it.

  Very bored, Puddin'! I'm getting really excited for this weekend when I'm going on a photo float for 3 hours on the Skagit River (Snohomish County, WA) through bald eagle (feeding on dead/spawned out salmon) country with a female friend. Last year it was pouring down rain.....this year it will just be freezing cold, but clear... :-)

  I think they have gone to sleep on the EPs.. I got them for the 20th, 21st, 22nd and 23rd, and that was way last week. They'll probably get started again soon. The month is about to run out.
We got a bunch of snow here. Of course I got stuck..and unstuck.. I'll get it figured out sooner or later.

Betty Ann....go into "my photos" > "manage/enter", copy the id number under the picture you want to share....then, under this box, click the "select" tab, click 1 image, hit submit, then in the next window paste/type the photo id number in the box on the right.... I think that's it.

  OK...still can't figure out how to delete responses as per Jim's instructions to "delete in Profile" but I did see that I can turn notification on or off there for different submissions and responses....so that should help. I also checked my preferences for POTD and I did in fact have it checked off that I want to subscribe but still not receiving and nothing in my Spam folder either. Oh well.
