    Mac you better enter something this month!

    The others can chime in here if they disagree but I feel that it isn't a conflict on interest for you to submit your own work as all the entries are anonymous and voted on by the community. We also get to see the vote count in real-time so we all pretty much know which entry is winning at any given time, anyway. That alone is enough to ensure the integrity of the contest.

    Just because you know who is entering what doesn't mean that you influence how the rest of us are voting. I know you have amazing setups and I feel that having shots from them included in the monthly contests will just add to the rich selection of images we get to vote on each month.

    Just my $0.02

    I agree 100% with André. It actually occurred to me the other day when I read your journal. I see no conflict of interest and would love to see your pictures included in POTM.

    The only way it could be a conflict of interest would be 1, you were a darn right a-hole, which you are not, 2 if there was $$ involved, which there is not and 3 it's done by vore/pole, kinda hard to manipulate the numbers in a poll that isn't done by someone political.

    If it's too fast then it must be thrash

    They are anonymous but; anytime you have submitted a pic, not including your SW I have a high % of guessing what pick was yours. Same way with Kat & Joe.

    True, and that has been brought up in the past that some members have tanks that are easily-recognizable. It's hard for those of us who follow each other's journals to not recognize certain setups/styles/animals. I just mean for the most part, especially for the members who don't spend a lot of time in the journal sections, the entries are anonymous and fair. Every winner I've seen has deserved the win because they submitted pretty awesome photos. I haven't really seen folks just pick certain entries just because they know who the poster was, regardless of the photo.

    Agree. It is my opinion that the folks who participate in the contest do so with integrity. Respecting the integrity of this contest is honoring the most interesting/beautiful/coolest photo, in the voter's own opinion. Who would wish to cast a vote otherwise?

    It is a fun contest, and seeing great photos is a delightful treat! I personally appreciate all of the work that goes toward this contest. Admin work, contestant entry work, all of it.

    Haha, hey! Same with Ken's. Who else has that epic botanical litter bed?

    I personally don't look at the pics and try to guess who entered them. Although some are obvious when you read a lot of journals, it's still the pic that makes the vote. It could be quality, it could be content, there's many factors that make up a vote.

    I also really love to look at member's photos, I appreciate this contest and all the work that goes into it.
