Updating entries in challenges seems to erase all photog notes

When we update an entry (because we make changes to an edit or any other reason), it appears we have to re-enter everything all over again. Previously, it just switched out the picture and left all the photog notes and camera/date/etc. info untouched. Is there a reason we can't have that back again?

Siegg, what's happening is that our software is detecting EXIF in your file and using what it can to fill in the details automatically.

Which fields aside from "Details" (or Photog notes) are being replaced that you feel shouldn't? Is it getting the camera/date/iso/aperture/shutter wrong? Can you send me a sample file @ http://www.dpchallenge.com/help_conta...

I have a feeling it was operator error. Because there are now two places you can update (above for the notes, below for new/replacement image), I got confused. I've not had the problem since.
