Wow, great! It's nice to hear from Focus here on the forums :)

The competition sounds cool. I hope I will receive my new computer by 26/11 so I can take a quality screenshot of my city!

We hope the competition will please you. 5Mo is nearly the same as 5 MB so there should be no problem. The goal is to avoid having heavy weighted screenshots that would slow down the forum. It will also make all participants have the same quality on the screenshots ;-).

Good luck.

Here is my photo. It's been auto resized but if you want a full image click here: http://img543.imageshack.us/img543/4172/cxlscreenshotcarnen4.jpg

It's from my city of Carnen, one of the most visited city journals here on the site, and the one with most pictures ( I think ) :D

People - apologies for the post deletions - I've been tidying up around the mass image post.

Competition rules - you can submit only one post per member.

If you break this rule, we will simply delete your subsequent posts. No warnings, no appeals.

Other members - if you spot a double-posting, please use the report post function.

If you want to change your submission, edit your original post.
