We were so excited to receive 179 fantastic post entries tagged to #FSSdeckdesign

We just wish we could see all the entries. Many days have passed since the deadline and the entries have not appeared.

Over 150 of the entries are not visible on the hashtag due to the filtering policy of Instagram.

Obviously, people cannot vote on designs they cannot see.

INSTAGRAM COULD OFFER NO SOLUTION.
