Hi!

This post will be a chat room for Team Virginia. We can also use our 2019 Team Virginia page, but G2G is easier if you have multiple threads going.

Thanks.

Well, crap.  I did my first photo and had no idea how to make it count.  When and where do I see the little button-thingy I have to push to get credit?  And to think I design and build power-plants for a living.  My god, it's a wonder the lights are even on.
Hi Gregory,

Better to post an answer to this question so we can address your question in its own thread instead of lumped in with all the other comments.

To your question, not sure since I haven't done this yet.  Liz, can you answer?

-William
I tried a second upload, William, same result.  I'm terrified to do another until I know that they'll be counted.  I could take a nap.  I need one.

I looked at your contributions, I see two uploads for this profile which is not counted because it does not comply with the rules that only open and public profiles count for image uploads.  Try uploaded to one of those and I expect it will count correctly.

Thank you William, I suspected as much.  Will endeavor to beat the system.
Success!
Yay! Sorry I wasn't here to answer questions... I did take a nap :D  (I am so not used to being up early anymore!)
William, et. al., I'm cooked.  I have no more to scan this year.  Next year's another story.  I have time to get it all together.  Thank you and Liz for heading up Team Virginia!  We may not have the quantity, but we're quality through and through!  And well-done Andrea and everyone who tried.  I looked through the photos and they're charming.

Heads up:  Since I'm at it, I'm going to download some images from Public Domain websites (records.)  I know they don't count, and I hope they're NOT counted.  If they are that's a mistake, and I assume they'll be stricken from the challenge in the final count.
Thanks for your contributions!
Thanks Gregory, and Thanks William!

William and I are co-captains, but it seems only one Captain per team can be noted in the stats & I uploaded something before William (who has since left me in the dust :D).

It really has been fun looking at all the cool stuff being uploaded!

Cheers, Liz
