    You're not being mean at all...ask away. :sunny:

    Hermez won the tank contest for last months' poll, and she decided to donate it to the winner of this months' contest for November. So we decided to have two winners for this month with the 2nd place winner getting the $5 gift certificate.

    But next month and the following months, there will only be a 1rst Place Prize, not a Second Place Prize, right???

    Unless the winner of this month donates his prize again, then there'll probably only be 1 prize. Besides, with 2 prizes I have a better chance of winning! :muahaha:

    HERMEZ was one out of the two winners of last month's contest, and she was the only one out of the two winners of last month's contest to donate her prize. . .

    I personally think that a 1rst and a 2nd place winner is more convenient, but that is just my oponion. . .

    I don't mind having 2 winners if you all want that. Make a poll on it and see what the other members have to say.

    I think 1st and 2nd places are great!

    I agree, if it is okay with Vckums, and she has enough prizes in stock, than yes, I would like to have a 1rst and a 2nd place prize for each monthly contest.

    I think it should depend on how many people enter like if there is over 5 people then ok have 1st and 2nd prizes and if there is more than 10 have 1st,2nd and 3rd maybe. that sounds a little more fair to me.

    You definately get a say too Hermiefun! She's donated nets, food etc. HERMEZ has also donated a few items she's not wanted anymore to use as prizes as well.

    We're pretty much saying the more people who enter, better chance of there being more then 1 prize. :dance:

    Hi
    This is my jumbo crab and I got him several months ago from a lady keeping him and 8 other smalls in a ten gallon tank. He recently molted with me and is now bright red. :hermez2: :spunky: He switched shells into a pretty round smooth one but he switched out before I took the picture. :sad5:
    There he is! :yes2:
    Thanks
