Thanks for considering. I see both sides myself, but I thought it might be worth thinking about further.

What about 1st, 2nd and 3rd place and they can not be the same person? Or just 2 places.

what about a rule that forces Brad to submit two pictures every month but disqualifies him from ever winning because everyone just accepts he is the best?

Hmmm, I'm good with whatever.  
I never submit photos myself.  But I'm all for whatever would increase participation.

Ok, here goes my little piece and my .02. Last month both my pics were in one vote so decreasing my opportunity to make it to the next round yet I did see that the polished pro had a picture in each of the rounds giving them both a better chance to win. I have nothing against his pictures they are gorgeous, but make it a fair and even playing field. Thanks for the soap box.

They are typically split so you aren't facing your own photo.  That was a mistake.

Doesn't this only get like 10 votes total? When I saw a post survey it only had about 8 votes and was closed. Is there a post in a paid area I am not seeing?

Could always do frag rewards for first and second place. ( same frag for both )

Same person can't win first and second place.

Just a thought

He does have great subject matter. But I would disagree that he is the "best"       I don't submit all that often because I don't have time to shoot my tank.

Instead of pro and rookie, do DSLR and Cell Phone.

Everyone has a cell phone with a camera, and it would level the playing field a little for those who don't have high quality cameras.

I like seeing the awesome pics as well. How about a prize for the winner and a prize for a randomly drawn participant? Then brad can continue to win and someone else as well.

I just hope this doesn't discourage Brad and other frequent winners from posting.  I'd miss seeing their pics.

Maybe it will motivate others post their pics. March POTM is still open.

Me too. I enjoy looking at the pics. Never pay attention to who wins.

Just make it to where the same person cant win two or three months consecutively. A second place would be nice also. There are a lot of people who could put their photos up. We should encourage anybody to do it as more of a "here's what my tank has and its cool" than a "best photo wins" kind of thing. I've seen a lot of great pictures that haven't won but they're still great pictures.

Another idea would be to have a photo contest for those looking for a little boasting and another of "your favorite pictures of the month". One for contest, one for fun.

As for meetings, it would be fun to try to get newbies to introduce themselves and to try to get more people to wear name tags... Sometimes you see people you dont think you know until you see their forum name. Then you're like "oh! You're reefdup and youuurrrr fat man..."

You guys decide and let me know. I can easily take my pics to another forum if you don't want me to post.
I enjoy posting in the POTM because I have worked very hard in my photography skills, but I am nowhere near a pro and I use a lower end slr camera.  I have spent the last 5 yrs taking thousands of photos of my tank and you get to see only the cream of the crop. My camera never leaves my desk and is always at arms length for the just in case shot.   Maybe there should be a vote in the next meeting to see if everyone wants me to take my pics elsewhere.
