Hello everyone,

I hope your 2017 is going great so far! After much consideration on the matter, I've decided to change the guidelines for what is considered "Unknown."  

The new rule will be:

Your submission must be in less than 25 groups.

This was previously 9 groups and we received lots of feedback from members who thought this number should be higher.  I hope you think less than 25 is more reasonable. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.   :)

Thank you all and I can;t wait to see more of your photos!  :heart:
