Switching Contests

I recently noticed (I think) that a contest entry was switched from one active contest to another active contest. I do not have a problem with this ... just wondering what the rules are and how you do that.

There are several cases when an entry can be moved from one contest to another, and actions attached to them:

1) Entry erroneously submitted into a wrong contest. Moved to a right contest.
2) Entry submitted fails to fit a contest theme, but is fine otherwise. If a Freak Show submissions are open then we move it there notifying the author. If a Freak Show contest is not running (or closed for submissions) then we remove the entry, suggesting that the author resubmits the entry to the next Freak Show.
3) Entry submitted into a right contest (usually a News in Pictures or a Freak Show contest), but later an author sees that we published a new contest dedicated especially to the topic he made a chop about. Then, if the author makes a request to move it into a newly published contest we usually honor it.

There's only one condition under which the entry CAN NOT be moved - that is, if the voting already started in the contest the entry was in, and the entry got some votes already. (if we moved such an entry, it would receive the votes in the new contest too, from scratch, resulting in duplicate/additional votes from some members, and messing up the voting results).

Hope this helps
