I love the Light Stalking challenges and viewing all the photos!
I am a new member, a week old, and found this from Flipboard 🙂
I uploaded my photos to many of the challenges, but feel invisible still…I can’t find anything that defines the system here other than uploading…
Does someone have time to help. I have been a part of challenge groups before…I need help. I really want to take part in the challenges. Thanks.
