GREAT idea...It made me mad when I saw that a room was stolen for the first contest...And I got even more angry when it happened a second time!
I wouldn't be surprised if most of the entries were stolen from the house threads and contest threads. :[

That would be a very good idea. There have been a lot of problems with that, especially since Kinzville News launched.

Those are uploaded and hosted through as well Another bonus of being a part of this great community.
BUT...I STILL think it is better to save posting these pictures until after the contest has run. It is only a couple of days and I don't want to see another Broken-hearted Winner
That's a great idea, Dixiecup. Another added safety measure would be to make it a private album, so that only your contacts could see it. Even though your contacts still could steal your idea, it would be easier to know who did it if there were to be an investigation.

Reason I would love to see this put in place is due to the problem with housez rooms being entered into the Kinzville Newz contests by those that did not make them. I know Grandmai's was proven to Ganz, and hopefully Newsboy's will be too !!

Granted, if one creates a housez room for the contest, it is best to not share it until the contest is over, but some people may already have rooms that they decide will work for entering into a contest. In this case they may forget to go back + temporarily delete their rooms from view.

I know that this will not prevent unscrupulous people from entering housez rooms that they did not enter, but it will cut down on the entire internet population from being able to do so.
I agree! Rep!

The most recent picture to be stolen was saved as an attachment.
So someone that actually plays WI stoles the recently stolen picture?
WoW. I'm scared to post a house thread now...

I do think that is a good idea, thanks for suggesting this.
People can steal the images and claim them as their own, which is not fair.
