Question: You used my home but not in the HotM article but instead in Inspirational homes or Tile art. Why didn't you add my house to the top 20?
Answer: Your home was very lovely but sadly it didn't compare to the beauty of the other homes. Don't give up and keep adding your homes because you never know when we will feture your home on the front page.
Question:Zoom out and full screen isn't going to work for a full shot picture of my home, what can I do?
Answer: You can take two pictures and edit them together to make one big picture displaying your home.
Question:I suspect someone completely stole my entry, what do I do?
Answer: If you suspect someone stole your home entry then please report it to one of the administration, preferably myself. There are many entries who have become inspired by your entry they decided to try to better it. If on the other hand the just took your image and added their name that is plain plagiarism and will not be tolerated. If someone takes your idea and tries to replicate it in their own home but just tweaking a few things then take it as flattery as your home was good enough.
