    Jess is running the contests but us Mods all need to get the rules straight in our heads, as well, so we can help others when Jess is not here. Trying to run contests anonymously, I think, is nearly impossible just because of these situations.

    This is up to Jess to figure out but in all honesty, pre-judging on a photo prior to putting it in a contest seems unfair to me if you plan to run the contests anonymously. Personally, I could care less about this little detail but others will and it could become an issue. And knowing the contests as I do, it will.

    It all comes down to the anonymous thing that doesn't work (to me).

    Smaug, you're right on. I can go thru the contests and just know who's pic is who's because I've already seen it in other threads. LOL I never voted on the person, anyway, but on the tank as I think we all did.

    To be honest i don't see anything wrong with putting my photos up for judging to try and improve them....that's what this section is for.

    It's not really about pre-judging but more about trying to find errors or things people may not like in some of the photos.

    What would be the difference between someones blog or this? Both show pictures of their tanks and can accept comments and suggestions.

    I did ask which one they though was better tank wise..
    but this also saved me the embarrassment of putting in an invalid tank or one that nobody likes very much.

    I know you meant nothing by it and I'm sorry I hijacked your thread to post my question/concern. It's hard for me to try to explain rules to someone when I can't understand them myself! I just wanted to make sure everyone had the same playing field in the contests and was not trying to get so technical!

    Seems if ya want anonymity, you should remove all photo threads thus removing any possible previewing of any photos. I would hope that if otherwise, that the judge would be impartial and fair in the event that the jujdge recognised a particular members tank photo. At some point, you have to place trust in the judges integrity.

    We are, indeed, trying to keep the contests as anonymous as we can to try to minimize a popularity contest and encourage creativity, fairness, and a level playing field. Probably a better post would have been to ask for feedback on your tank pictures rather than saying you want to enter one as TOTM--just my opinion, mind you. Some of us have pretty good memories--I for one surely recognize some photos or styles pretty quickly, but am not always correct. I'd like to think that it doesn't color my judgement when voting, but the voting is subjective as to what we like or not like.

    No one should ever be embarrassed by a photo entry to any contest. If you think it is good, then it's good enough to be entered. If I had to choose between your two photos, I would choose the second one. FYI, as it's a new year, you are eligible to enter into TOTM.
