I just thought i'd start a thread here since Hobbs Competition Note was closed for comment. This is just a thought, if anyone wants to chime in thats fine, I just didnt know where else to post my thoughts.

About changing pics in the competitions......I don't feel like its a good idea to allow the changing of pics. I mean Hobbs, I dont want to step on toes or seem to put words in your mouth, but doesn't it get a little difficult to decipher everything and change things once someone has changed a picture?
I just think whatever is entered should be kept and if you really like another picture, keep it for next months comp. I just don't see why its necessary to change something and create more work, unless the pic you posted was a mistake (since we can't delete posts ourselves).
Anyway....j.m.h.o.

Please feel free to--:14: --if i'm off my rocker on this...lol

i agree, if you think you will change your picture at sometime take a bunch of pictures over the month, then go through them and submit the one you think is best a FEW days before the contests close, that way you wont have to swap

I agree with you Megan, it is unfair on Hobbs to be expected to change or resize pics

Thats pretty much why I brought it up. Hobbs does this all for the site and I think its unfair for people to add to her work load for something as silly as wanting to change a picture. Something that could be kept in a file/folder until next months comps. It just seems selfish. Sorry.

Generally I try to be a bit lenient in making some changes since someone may get a new fish and get all excited to enter it in the photo contest and delete another. But when they make changes and don't let me know, then I get screwed up. People judge from both sites, here and photobucket, and if they change a picture here and I haven't made the changes there it gets a bit hairy and they may end up with actually more than 2 entries.

The point in my post is just to let them know that more is involved in making a change than they realize. Some just didn't know so that post was just to inform.

But picking out a picture you intend to use for the entire month is indeed the preferred way of doing things and certainly simplier for me. Usually we don't have all this bouncing around of photo's like we did this month.

Maybe I should write: Please don't change pictures like you change your underwear?

Lol Hobbs


Btw: Just as a quick statement--I have no idea who changed their pictures, so I wasn't trying to single or point any person/persons out. Just the topic in general.

The way I see it, if you enter a picture into a competition, it's entered, case closed. If you feel you have a better picture than your previous one and have already reached your two picture limit, save it for the next competition.

I agree that photos should not be allowed to be switched. I mean, do you enter a nascar race and decide mid-race to switch cars?

You enter a photo in the comps because you like the pic and think it will win. If you then take a pic that is even better than the one you posted, great. But wait until next month.

Sorry )o:

I changed my pic on TOTM only in spitit of the contest. When I re-read the rules I felt my pics were not in compliance. I will say, however, I did not change my tank at all, I just used a better camera to show them.

Zero apologies needed. Megan didn't know who it was and I didn't either. Just discussing the topic here, not pointing fingers.

NP. I wasn't suggesting anyone was pointing fingers, just letting everyone know just in case. Not that I have any chance to win this month anyhow lol

No more changing of pictures anymore, period.

It's ridiculous to have a mass changing of pics just days before comps end.

I do have to say that some still don't know that pictures are loaded to a website as well. You can't really blame people for what they are unaware of.
I will post it in future contest to help save some confusion.

sounds good. They can always enter one of their other pictures the next month.
