Q: what happened to the themes and the challenges?

A: Do you know?

For some reason, this photo was removed. I haven't heard back from JPG as to why. Please don't feel obligated to comment again. I'm just disappointed because not only did I lose all the comments, but the photo had achieved "hot" status. :-(

    I think JPG was out to lunch on your photos!

    Have no idea why the admins do what they do; they're almost non-existent so far as I can tell. Better that than an in-your-face style, I guess! Still think this is a great photo!

    I hear from others on the site that JPG takes away hot ratings and sometimes gives them back and many of them have comments, views, etc. that the photo should stay hot. It is so frustrating to us to get a hot and then have it taken away!!! However, I really like your card and maybe JPG will give you the hot rating back.

    Yes, this photo was previously removed along with a couple others. There are lots of forms of art and many styles of photography. JPG is not about Photoshopped images. We understand that every photographer edits their photos and we try to be as inclusive as possible but "cropping" and "pasting" of images is outside the scope of our photo guidelines and is subject for removal. Thanks for your understanding.

    To address Ann's concerns. The only instance a photo's hot status is removed by a JPG admin is if the photo does not meet the requirements of the theme or challenge entered. For example: If we run a theme that is calling for cat photos and a user posts a photo of horse (and the photo clearly has nothing to do with "cats" in any possible way) and that photo goes HOT, yes we will remove the photo's HOT status. It's not fair to the other users that followed the directions of the theme. We do reserve the right to remove the photo from the theme all together. However, we typically do not.

    As a reminder, a photo's HOT status is subject to change. Think of it more as "trending photos". It is a live rating based on an algorithm of factors. A photo can be hot one week and not the next. A photo can be hot for a year (or more) and then another photo can get some attention and become hot. Only 10% of the photos entered into a theme/challenge can have a HOT status. What this means is that if a new photo becomes HOT then the system will have to remove the status from another photo due to the fact that only a limited number of photos can be HOT.

    to JPG!

    My son was on the original staff of JPG. At first they only accepted unedited photos. But as time went on and they saw what the loyal followers of JPG could and would do, they gladly accepted any and all edits. This is what was and is popular. JPGers want to use their creativity, and if they're unable to do so they will move on to other sites that do allow it.
