<sigh>
Well, there is apparently. I believe that the culprit is the fact that I 
cannot link the "Topic" from the topics list (i.e. Star) to the 
extension of the Challenge. In the past, I generally could, but this 
time the topic has disappeared. [grumble grumble]

We need to look into this.

All it needed was a kiss. - A Glasgow one. ;-)

I think that it is working now. Don't ask me why. I lost count of the 
number of kicks, I gave it. :-D

No, no. A Glasgow kiss is a headbut.
The kicks were just part og the general "doing". As in "give it a doing".

It seems the site is alive, but brain-dead for members:
* it remembers that I have made one submission (that's a good point, and
the picture is still there)
* but there is no entries for which to vote in Rating Area
"You have voted for all of the 0 entries (your votes will be counted)"...

before the 1st March, there was at least 6 entries. And I rated them
(excepted mine, of course).

Sorry, maybe we should publish it more often. But until a bit of testing 
and fixing has been done. We are running the same Challenge back to back 
to get a longer time span.
So, if you upload your image in the first part of the Challenge then you 
will need to upload it again the next period.
When, if ever, we get the revamped site online. There will be two 
Challenges running concurrently with independent time frames. So we 
could run Long and short Challenges.
The developer has twice asked if he can release the code and I've twice 
said yes if he can fix the minor faults on a s/sheet I sent him.
I will try and phone him this weekend and get the ball rolling again.
