Hi :)
It's the deviation that has to me new or the icon only ? (So Can we use a picture that we have already retouched if we think that it fits perfectly to a group ?)

Is the limit per entries per person or per group
Ie is it two entries per user per group or two entries per person only regardless of the groups your designing for?
dAhub's avatar
Two entries per person only regardless of the groups you're designing for
