The latest Photo Competition has just closed for entries, and before we open voting, we are taking the opportunity to change our website hosting provider.  We anticipate that this should be a relatively fast operation, but until we can confirm that the new hosting provider has completed the transfer correctly we have disabled image submissions to this website.  We have also disabled upload of image and attachments to Forum posts; but have not closed the Forum, since we would like current posts to still be accessible.  However, we ask members to please refrain from posting new messages to the Forum until the changeover is complete.  This will be notified by an announcement on this page - hopefully within a day or so.
