Ok one of those random ideas again! ???How about we have a snail photography competition! Ok this would work by a poll which enables you to vote for a particular snail photograph. We could enter our best snail photos and after a certain amount of time the votes are counted and then you can see who's won! ;D

Nice idea. The fish board I go on does a pic of the month comp and it's a big hit. There's loads of snails on here so it's bound to be good lol. Obviously there would have to be limits and rules etc.
The last one must have been when I'd forgotten about this site.. 'cause I don't remember it lol.
I don't think it's too soon for another though. There's so many great pics people can enter that it would probably be easier to do them more often so everyone can enter at least one of the comps. Doing it once a year or something would mean chaos with -everyone- wanting to put their pic in lol. At least if there's one every month or so, people will have a chance to enter the next months comp.
Would it be just for land snails? Or would aquatic ones be allowed too?
Ok, I think the same as Sarah, that there should only be land snails. I also believe that everyone should be able to enter the competition. It would be held once a month for an unlimited number of people. However, there should only be one picture per person. I like Arno's idea that the winner of each month should enter a competition at the end of the year to see who has won overall. The only thing is that this would have to be done by a poll. The problem is that people could vote for their own picture? I'm not sure how this could be avoided. I'm glad that I have brought this subject back to life again. I do hope that we could have the competitions.
I've just realised that the prize for the last competition was to appear on the homepage of petsnails and I never did it!! Sorry Arno, I'd completely forgotten about it. I'll add it in the next few days so it has a decent run before the next winner.
Last time we did it with cybersnail because there are more registered members than here and it stops people voting twice. It'd be nice to allow guests to vote though, if we did that there'd be risk of people skewing the results but it'd also allow anyone and everyone to vote.
