    HOTM July 2012 [ Herp of the Month ]​


    Theme: Bath Time! Post a picture of your pet reptile or amphibian taking a bath, being misted, or otherwise getting all washed up and wet!


    Information:​
    HOTM 2012 is a friendly, forum-run contest, where members of the site can enter a picture of their reptile or amphibian, which will be voted on by members of the site on a knock-out style competition. Pictures will be entered into the HOTM threads, and votes will be made in the thread, or can be sent to myself, if you wish these to stay confidential. Below is the expected structure / time frame of the competition.​

    1st-11th ~ Entry thread opens.​
    12th-19th ~ Members vote based either in the thread by making a post, or by PMing myself.​
    20th-22st ~Top three photos from the previous thread are entered into a new thread with a poll.​
    23nd-29th ~ Members have only a few days in which to vote via a poll on the top three photos from the previous thread.​
    29th-30th ~ Thread will be closed. Votes will be counted and the HOTM winner will be announced and prize given.​

    The winner will then be announced in that thread, and also in a winners thread within the Archived Forum. The winner will receive the "HOTM Winner" User Title rank for a period of three months. The winner will also choose the theme for the next month's contest.​

    Contests will run on a monthly basis, and the dates above are subject to change. If the winner does not decide on a theme for the following month, users will be free to post any picture of their herp that they like. Theme ideas may include (but are not limited to): best feeding picture, best vivaria, best sleeping picture, etc etc.​

    Rules:
    ONE photo entry per member only. Members may not enter more than one photo. If more than one photo are entered, a mod will edit out all photos except for the first one posted by that user.​

    Members may only vote ONCE. Any members found to be creating accounts to vote, will be warned, and their votes voided, and their privilege to enter the competition will be removed. Remember, this competition is meant to bring fun to the forum, don't spoil it.​

    If a member wins two months in a row, they will no be allowed to participate in the following month's event.​

    Members are encouraged to post pictures of a reasonable quality. If pictures of bad quality are posted, members are reminded that the likelihood that these will get far in the competition is very low.​

    Minor photo editing (cropping, adjusting brightness, etc) is acceptable; but to be as fair as possible to all members we would like to allow the photos to remain as original as possible. Please refrain from excessive editing of entries.​

    Please make sure that the photo size rules in place on this site are adhered to - a maximum of 640 pixels on the longest edge e.g. 640x480 pixels(or 480x640 portrait). Any help needed with this, PM a mod.​

    Disclaimer: Please note that the moderators will have final say in the content that is uploaded to the site and to the contest, please remember to be respectful and upload photos in good taste and nothing that ellicits unsavory activities; please remember, we have members under 18 and some under 14 in this community.
    Other than that, have fun, and good luck! = )​

    PLEASE NOTE, ALL ENTRIES ARE TO BE POSTED INTO THIS THREAD. PLEASE KEEP COMMENTS TO A MINIMUM.
    If you have any questions, please PM a mod or ask in THIS thread.

    Well, I guess I'll do one-this is sort of blurry, but it's one I already had on here, so I'll use it. This is my Green Tree Frog(Alfred the Ninja Frog) when I 1st got her probably about a year ago. :)

    I think I'm going to do things a little differently this month due to the lower number of entries... Let's go ahead and begin voting on the 3 entries available by cookie17, lisa owens, and lizardgurl and we'll decide on the winner at the end of the month = )

    Toadboy, that is a great picture, i would have voted for it, but the guidlines show that you only have 10 days to post, im sure the admins will have no problem letting you enter, the only thing is most people voted already so they wont have a chance to vote for you. Next months contest which begins in only a few days i reccomend you entering cause that is a beautiful snake :D
