    I have a few questions -

    What happens if I am working on an article and someone else posts an article on the same topic, with identical information, before I can post mine? The whole effort is lost. Can blocking of one topic, at a time, be considered?

    Any chance of extending the date for this contest?

    Juana,

    Don't worry about submitting an article on the same topic as of another member. The Webmasters have said that for a contest we can accept up to two articles on the same topic since the perspective and presentation of the two authors will be different, even considering the fact the same advice and tips would be given.

    Yes, we were planning to extend the closing date by a few more days since there seems to be a poor response so far and, perhaps, extending the date will help to bring in better participation. We will put in the fresh closing date in the announcement.

    Vandana,

    Can you please post an update whether the closing date for the contest is going to be extended. I know there are still two more days to go, but I need to know so I can schedule my work.

    Rosie Ray,

    Thanks for the reminder of the points and cc for the quiz participants. I completely forgot about it! Just a note, though - it is better to raise a separate thread or send a message to an editor rather than mentioning it in a response in an unrelated thread where it may not be seen till much later.

    Also, please give a direct link to your article entries for quick reference for the jury panel. Refer for guidance on how to do so in case you are not having knowledge of it: How to create a link to an ISC page

    Jenny,

    The issue of being unable to attach an image was faced by other members too in the past. Tony Sir had suggested re-sizing the image. So perhaps you tried to attach a very large image. Please try making it a bit smaller and let us know if you are still having a problem.
