I thought about that but there are many times users upload an image and realize they either uploaded the wrong one or uploaded a degraded version of the photo. I'd be getting private messages all the time to delete them.
The other problem would fall is we only give each user designated file storage. Some of these members have been with the website since 2003 and start to run out of space and/or just want to delete old pictures.
After resting my brain last night I just tried it this morning on one of my images with 2 of my separate user name and it works. YEAH!!!
No more right click to save their image and reupload it into the Finalist User name and Category.
They can click around at the different categories to see where its placed but can't delete it from Archives category or the Finalist Category.
And.... They can delete the picture from their Member Gallery to give them more space but that will not automatically delete it from the Archives or Finalist Category.
I think this might be because I set those 2 categories as users not allowed to upload to, edit, or delete
I always think outside the box
The one question, I and the users have is Why is it that if a user uploads a picture that goes into the Member Gallery category and at the same time of upload place it into the Contest, but if people start to make comments on their photo in the contest, they only see the comments in the Contest category and not in their Member Gallery.
In the past it always used to show in both places, so a lot of long time members are confused.
