It looks like Judith Chidlow isn't registered for the Scan-a-Thon yet. Will you follow up with her? We may have missed her, otherwise, have her head to the registration thread. Thanks!

Does anyone know when they are going to start the G2G post for Scan-a-thon questions?

I have 4 I would like answers for so I can plan my uploads.

1) If a picture has more than one person in it (say my parents), can if I upload it and associate it with both profiles, does that count as 2 uploads? This applies to both the scan-a-thon scores and the number of uploads per profile.

2) If a profile already has say 3 photo's can you still upload and have counted 10 new ones or 7?

3) What is the url for individual and team scores?

4) Do we have a G2G Team post for communicating amongst ourselves?

Other than needing answers to my questions, I am ready to start :-)
