The first contest isn't over yet and another starts; oh snap; awesome job Rob; I am definitely gonna take a crack at this one.

I am confuse as to what this means though:
Quote:
No more than 4 photos per entrant (not 4 per entry, but per entrant).
Does this mean you can post four different "angle" pics on one case/entry?

It means that you, werty316, can only submit 4 photos in all.

This helps keep it fair, and saves disk space on the server.

I was looking at the rules and just out of curiosity, what the heck is this: "residents of Canada may be required to answer a simple math question."

LoL, why is that?

I think it's because Canada doesn't allow free giveaways simply by chance, but they allow it if a simple test of skill is involved. This way, since the winner is chosen at random from the top five ugliest cases, we don't run afoul of this rule. I'm not sure if this restriction still exists, though, as I don't live in Canada.

@slugbug: Yeah. That means if you want to enter two cases, you're limited to two photos of each case, for a total of four.

Um...wouldn't it be a case of us choosing from the bottom five? I mean the top five would be the least ugly of the bunch

Rules are there for a reason and I don't see how people miss them...
