Hi everyone,

I like to vote on picture of the week to keep up my CAPA training for photo judging, which is rusty. I have a hard time voting for photos that have large names plastered on them. Ironically, this is usually by well known contributors on the site. I understand the concern for copyright infringement totally. Is there some way to watermark without an obvious connection to the individual's identity? I have never entered this contest, so nothing to do with valid competition, but it actually prevents me from voting for good images when I see a name so obviously branded across an image. Can a rule be put in place to prevent the obvious identity of the competitor? It just seems like a fairer way of doing things.

How about something generic? Like "licensed for display only on www.WetPixel.com" ??????
