I have had a lovely Sunday morning setting up the poll for the April Photo Competition - QE2 Boat Deck, ready for you to start voting on Tuesday. 

I have so enjoyed studying the wonderful photos that members have submitted for the competition and lovely memories of walking on the boat deck have came flooding back as I was working on this task.

Remember you still have time to submit your photos up until midnight on 30 April. The prize for the winner of the April Photo of the Month competition is a copy of Carol Thatcher's Forty Years Famous book.  See here for more details:

Hi Lynda
I just uploaded photos for the first time, but the info (when and where) did not appear in the April competition page. What should I do to correct this?  I added the info as the name of the file on 'My Pictures'. Sorry - new to all this technology!

Hi Linda, I have just checked and the photos are in the right place and part of the April competition. Great to see them!

I particularly like the one of the revolving door between the shops and the deck, and wish I had thought of taking pictures in this area too...

The info is there in the filename, and I am adding it for you in the text.

Thank-you Linda for adding your photos to the competition.  I know what it is like when you are trying something new for the first time on the Forum.  Sorry that I was not around to help earlier this afternoon but good to see that Isabelle was around and managed to check this out for you.

Linda - thank you for your message. I will continue to get to grips with the technology and hope to post an 'introduction' soon - only about 3 years overdue!

Isabelle - apologies for not spotting that it was you who responded to my query. I was in a rush to get to the local coffee (and cake!) shop and didn't read the message properly!  Thank you for sorting things out for me.
