I was wondering if some requirement for entry could be implemented, like a minimum of 20 posts, or something.
Quite a few of the entries in April's contest were made by people who have never posted anything, for instance, the winner has 0 posts. That just kinda irritated me because it's supposed to be fun for the forum, not fun for the forum and any random person off the internet who decides to join the forum to enter a picture, yknow?

I actually voted for the photo that won and I was pretty disappointed that it turned out to be someone who has made zero contributions to our "community."

Maybe this is just me, but I'd like to see actual forumers winning, instead of random people I don't "know."

Thanks!

Yeeh agreed :D. It kind of erks me that people enter contests on here, or start contests and never do anything else. Often you never here from them again.

BTW lol, I just reached 1000 posts. I feel like I've joined some exclusive club. :D Just had to share it.

May I also suggest that there be different categories? It was very hard to choose what photo to vote for because there was no guideline as to what we were looking for, other than a "nice photo"

^ Agreed. I think it would be nice to separate maybe funniest vs cutest/sweetest vs most graceful/beautiful or something like that.

Hi guys,

I agree that a member should be required to have a few posts under their belt before entering or voting in our official contest. I've set the requirement to 25 posts.

Next month's contest is going to have a theme. We are currently discussing what the theme should be and welcome you to make suggestions. :)

Thanks Mike! That sounds great. :D What about a theme like "Fun in the Sun" or something summer-y like that since it will be June?
