Yes Michael, you are right, and I also thought about it. One way could
collect all user permissions and perform automatic extraction for these
users only. The email address is the key for this. If "support" receives
a confirmation from a user, we can transfer all the images of the TC_RTC
member corresponding to the email address the request has been sent from.

However, there are many destinations for transferring the pictures: the
user profile (private, no round), the Tina Chep profile (public, one group
per round), the picture gallery user category (private, no round), and/or
the public picture gallery round category.

The upcoming challenges will use the picture gallery structure (e.g.
http://dev.noware.ca/index.php/en-us/picture-gallery/public/noa).

The current rating system does not allow for more than one vote per image.
So the appreciation is simply one value from 1 to 20 overall with no category.
It makes things plain and simple.
