  TC-RTC thought on voting/rating

I just read again carefully milco2006's thread above, about not being able 
to vote because he had not entered an image in previous rounds. I went to 
the TC-RTC rules and read those carefully again.

After pondering this awhile, I believe there is a problem here. Suppose that 
in the next round all entries are images by first-time submitters. According 
to the rules, they would not be able to vote during that round. Only members 
having submitted in previous rounds (but not in the discussed one) would be 
able to vote. This seems very unfair to me. IMO, as soon as you submit an 
image, you should be able to vote for that particular round. Only if you 
have not submitted for three successive rounds, you should be excluded from 
voting/rating. However, voting rights should then be granted again as soon 
as you submit an image again.

The text of the rules should therefore be (maybe): "...a member is allowed 
to rate pictures only if he has uploaded an entry in one of the last three 
competitions, including the current one."

Am I understanding this correctly or am I daft?
