    I guess Im going to have to make more rules to the contests as I was hoping to keep them really easy and low key(especially for me).


    1. 1 picture per HCRU member
    2. Once a pic is entered, it can't be changed
    3. No duplicate IP's allowed. If you have a brother/sister/friend using your IP, then they can't enter or vote. If this happens you will be disqualifed.
    4. To not hurt another members feelings, please PM a moderator/admin with any concerns or questions about an entry.
    5.The winner for the month of the contest must sit out the next contest. (ex: If you win for June you can't enter July's contest) This will hopefully settle any disputes.
    6. Have fun, if not McKenny will be forced to ground you. You know you don't want that to happen!

    The rules sound fair, Ms. Rule Maker!

    Oh, I remember that! Except HERMEZ grounded us that time! It was pretty fun, actually! :D Except for all of our hand injuries after punching holes through walls.

    I know the rules are pretty cut and dry but I do have a question regarding number 5. What if the next month is a crabitat picture instead of a crab picture, could we enter then? If not I understand but I thought I would ask anyways. To me they seem like different contests and would seem less "controversial" if that makes sense. :confused:

    What if I'm not entering in the next contest anyway? Does that still count as my month?

    I'd like to make it so that if you enter and win, no matter the theme, you'd sit out the next time no matter that theme. I used to belong to a site that there was this member who took the most amazing pics, and more times then not they'd win. I just want to make it so that everyone gets a shot at a chance to win.

    Another option could be a runner up prize. I think we've done that on here or my forum, can't remember. So two people have the chance to win, but they'd still have to sit out the next contest.

    McKenny and I could make up a list for hte months and themes so everyone would have a bit of notice as to the theme and that way you could choose which ones you'd like to enter. We're still feeling all this out, so throw ideas, questions, concerns to us.

    Since you won this month and didnt plan on participating then it would still count as you sitting out.

    Understood and I have been there as well, just thought I would ask.:) Are there going to be more than just 1 month per size for tank though, or will there be a month for every size tank instead? I know you are still working this out just throwing some ideas out. That would give 4 out of the 12 months dedicated to tank pictures, 3 months for size specific and 1 for every tank, then 8 months a crab pictures. :)

    Thanks for the clarification if you need to you can pm me for further details or questions.

    Spidtat, there's a post "Summer Picture Contests" that I moved up to the front. A breakdown of the months contests are listed there.:)


    Bottom line is:
    If you won in May---you can't enter in June
    If you win in June---you can't enter in July
    So on and so on...

    If you win a month---you sit out the next month...Cococrisp can't enter in the June contest, but she will be able to enter again in the July contest.

    As Vicki refered to, if the same person wins all the time, people are going to get discouraged and not enter at all.
    These are just a little fun thing to do with a small prize for the winner.
    Vickums provides the prize from her own store and pays the postage to ship it to you.

    I know the contests may not be conducted to personnaly suit everyone, but this is all new for me and I'm trying to make them fun and fair for all members. If you have any suggestions, I will be glad to consider them and run them by Vicki.

    It'll all come together after a while.....:):)

    I know it's an old thread, but you should add if or if not photo editing like photo shop is allowed.:)
