    Personally, I think we should allow them to continue - I'll just have to email them anything related to the results, etc.

    *Whatever the outcome, I think this needs to be mentioned in the rules for any future seasons!
    Hmmm, idk how I feel about this. I'll have to think on it. On the one hand, we do have non-forum members participating in the contest, but on the other, if you can't follow the rules of the forum and are permanently banned idk how I feel about them winning the pot. I think if the ban was permanent or temporary would sway my decision. Can you give us that info or is it private?

      I don't think they should be DQ'd, There are only a few more weeks left!

        I don't think they should either, since non members get to participate too. It seems only fair. I guess it would depend on the reason they were banned maybe.

          I am learning more about the ban, and it seems it might be more complicated so this person might have to be DQd. It was a perm. ban.

            This is tough because we do have some non forum members competeing, but if you can not obied by the rules of the forum, you then can not paritcipate in other contests such as photography.

            Should this contest be any different? I am leaning toward DQ, but not set either way at this point. Just my current thoughts.

              I think they should be allowed to continue or have their $$ refunded. But yea this issue should def go in the rules for next season (my big weight loss season haha).

                Ok, so I've been thinking about it and here's my 2 cents:

                I think the person should be dq'd from the contest and that their money should be refunded to them. While we do have non-members participating in the contest, it is only because they are friends or family of active BDW members. I feel that unfortunately, regardless of the circumstances, if you are banned from the forum permanently you should be disqualified from the contest. [This would also make it clear for future contests so we don't get into debates about why someone was banned and if the reason would affect whether or not they are out of the contest.] Tammy has rules on the forum for a reason and I feel that if they weren't followed (intentionally or not) and she deems you are to be banned, then you forgo the contest. JMO.

                  Ok, she will be DQ'd - it turns out there was more than simple "unintentional" solicitation, it was borderline spamming. So now the question is, is her FI DQ'd too? Ugh.

                      I agree with this statement. I feel bad to say DQ but if you broke the forum rules you should have no access to the contests anymore. For her husband IDK maybe he should continue since it was not his fault the actions she did. Thats my thoughts.
