I just think its nice if a winner is called. Thats why its called a contest and not just posts under horse photos. Its more fun for most folks if there is an end to the contest. Without it, its like a raffle for air.

I don't even DO the carrot thing. I just like to see the places.

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.

i totally agree with goldilockz. i understand that it is a contest and that yes it should be judged and a winner should be announced, but come on, i thought the horse forum was for fun and to enjoy yourself, having a few "contests" where there isnt a judge or anything isnt all that bad in my opinion. and when ppl do post threads where they arent judged, they'll usually say " okay this is just for fun, not a competition or something" Somethimes four or five ppl will post a pic and there is only a third place, the others probably feel that they're pic was dumb or ugly or ******ed or something if it wasnt chosen for a placing, i UNDERSTAND it is a contest, but it does get a little down on some ppl sometimes. i dont think it is irritating at all, but thats just me. i think things are great how they are on the forum.

If it wasn't for the bad stuff.... it wouldn't make winning so great.

Maybe we should just cancel all contests period.

It doesn't seem to be too important and I will now just post any old picture I find randomly on the net as an entry...after all it really is just for fun.

^^ Yeah, I was thinking that too, but I think a lot of people would put up a fuss..

I agree with canceling contest. What is the point? You bet it is 100 % fun, just like what others have said... why take the time and call it a contest if a winner is not called?

I highly doubt it,

Having been on the receiving end of an unfinished contest and having my entry dropped to allow the contest originator to put up their pictures that were not even entered on the original entry thread and no one but a very few even noticed or said anything.

That makes me feel that yes...no one really cares about any of the contests so they should be cancelled.

I, personally think they should be banned.
