weird title hey? lol. i was just thinking, since we have member of the year, how about a comp in december where all of the winning pictures of TOTM and POTM over the months compete for a final vote for POTY and TOTY? (photo of the year, tank of the year)

that could work and for TOTY you could put in updates, we'll see how we can tweak it

Cool idea, as long as it's not too much work for the mods to add two more competitions. Or have it in January so that the folks who won TOTM and POTM in December are eligible.

This is something that could be brought up to William very easily.

And doing one more contest is notta problem at all. Pictures are already loaded up in photobucket, infact, under Winning Photos in 2008 and Winning Tanks in 2008. Shaaaaaaa-zammmmm!

The contest should be from all the tanks and fish that won that year with no changing of them. Changing of them no longer makes them the photo you won an award for!

Should be the first week in January as Greg mentioned.

Good idea cocoa.

My tank won TOTM not a picture... if i still have the tank and it's basically the same only better months later i don't see why i wouldn't be able to use a newer updated photo.

I mean i can see either side of the argument but i wouldn't even want to enter my old photo into any contest...

I agree that it should be the winning pics at the time, not an update...There are still a few more months to get your "updated tanks" in the TOTM :)

The suggestion was to pick from the prior winning photos. If people can change their tank picture then they should also be able to change their fish picture, too?

Everyone changes their tank around.

I wouldn't want a new picture just because i changed things but because of growth. Same tank just more lush and thicker.

(even though mine isn't right now after the algae problem it might be in a few months)


but i see that you can't change POTM so you do what you have to do.

...x2 on the NOT changing the picture or updating it tho.

agreed, theres always a chance that someone who won early in the year tore down the tank/moved and rearranged everything/etc

x2... and if someone used live plants, his tank could look a lot better now.

I think this is a perfect idea --- ONLY those totm and potm pictures can be entered -- IF your tank has changed for the better then enter it in the next months comp and you will be qualified for that years comp as well.

Great Idea!!!

Thanks William. :) But you get to make the new awards for it.

There will be a POTY and TOTY contest in January then as presented by cocoa_pleco from our past winners.

Do you want it done as another elimination? Top picks (say top 4) go into a week of finals?

William

I´ll do the awards.

You are free to decide how you want the competition to be structured.
