How do you find/contact the moderator of the Burning Question 7 contest? Answered

Need a clarify on one of the image rules and can't seem to find how to contact the moderator for the contest. Shouldn't be too difficult. Thanks

The Instructables have to include their own original images taken by you, the author. Instructables comprised of images found online will not be allowed into the group.

What needs clarifying? Don't google, use your own images.

The clarification was in regards to using an occasional photo not of the actual project. For example when writing the Instructable "Write a Resume" and although the resume pix were all originals, I used a couple pictures of actual help wanted signs in the introduction and to set tone. This was prior to my reading the rules of the contest which indicate I may not be within the rules. My Instructable was allowed by the moderator which would indicate it is OK with it's content. I'm trying to understand if I need to stage some pictures, just don't know how to make a picture of 10,000 Chinese at a job fair.

As long as the images are created by you, you are within the rules. I answered an early BQ with an instructable where the images were all diagrams drawn in Word & turned into JPEGs. It was about parking, which is better shown from above, which was impossible for me to do without investing in scaffolding or hanging out of the window of a tall building.

I tried contacting BQ at first but the admin running him did not reply. Then I contacted noahw and he replied within an hour. I hope it helps. But when I looked at the rule that kiteman posted, I think it is refers in instructables that are mostly made up of images off of the web.
