    Hi guys,

    As Meggymoo mentioned, we have recognized the interest in contests and are planning to setup official Horse Forum photo contests! There has been some delay because we wanted to look into whether we could arrange for prizes for the winning members.

    In order to avoid any potential conflicts over who judges and the potential for bias, etc., members will be able to vote for their favorite photo in a poll, as opposed to a single member or small group of members choosing a winner. We will have some kind of requirement that members who vote have registered at least X days before the contest begins so that people are not tempted to create new accounts simply to vote for their own pictures.

    We hope that the official Horse Forum contests will be fun and ease some of the tensions surrounding contests and how they are judged.

    As always, we encourage you to make any suggestions that you think may enhance The Horse Forum.

    Sincerely,
    Mike :)

    Thanks everyone. Administrators, that's fine with me. I just thought that some form of organization should be used. I also agree that with different people choosing judges there's a possibility for scepticism and favoritism. Thanks for taking this on. I think that the board hosting the contests would be wonderful! If you guys can figure it out, prizes would be the ultimate. Hey, maybe with the type you're talking about where the registered members vote for the winners, at the end of the year, the top winner or two get a free HF bumper sticker! :P Just an idea.
    So, from here do we just wait for something else from the mods on how you're doing this? We'll be looking forward to it.

    Hi Mz. Packman,

    I'm glad that you like the idea. I hope everyone else does, too. We will provide regular updates on the status of the contests. This is something we are moving quickly on because we are excited about them, too, so it should not be long until we have more to share.

    Thanks,
    Mike :)
