 Nice  idea  Jib.  
 
 Will  you  be  filtering  out  those  entries  which  do  not  adhere  to  the  competition  rules,  and  upload  only  the  ones  which  do?

 Great  initiative  Jib.  Keep  it  going.
 
 Myself  and  Angad  (Piranhaboy)  started  the  same  in  Orkut  3  years  before  in  Best  Aquariums  community  and  it  was  a  big  hit.  But  for  lack  of  time,  we  could  not  continue  the  contest  for  last  1  year.
 
 From  my  past  experience,  I  would  suggest  couple  of  changes,
 
 1.  Don't  put  the  entries  Up  for  vote  through  Poll.  75%  of  the  response  will  be  fake.  
 
 All  the  entries  should  come  with  Entry  number  and  everyone  should  put  a  comment  like  "Entry  #2  :  My  Vote".  End  of  the  contest,  we  have  to  count  the  votes  for  each  entries.
 
 2.  You  have  to  keep  an  eye  on  the  entries.  Cause  we  saw  people  copying  pictures  from  Net  and  posting.
 
 3.  Do  you  really  want  to  take  up  the  pain  to  receive  all  the  entries  by  mail  first  and  post  them  in  a  thread  later?  otherwise,  everyone  should  directly  post  the  entries  in  a  thread  and  we  can  create  another  thread  for  voting.
 
 4.  At  a  time  only  1  picture  allowed.  Otherwise  there  will  be  carpet  bombing.  
 
 5.  Post  processing  is  good  but  too  much  post  processing  is  worst.  Like  background  changes.  
 
 Let  me  know  what  you  think.

 yes  will  filter  those  pics,  which  do  not  follow  the  rulez
 
 
 Thank  you  thirtha
 will  take  them  into  picture  and  we  can  always  improvise,  lets  give  this  a  test  run  with  as  many  entries  as  possible  and  see  how  itgoes,  as  we  go  forward  we  can  make  the  necessary  ammends

 i  actually  want  to  keep  the  voting  anonymous
 and  i  am  putting  faith  in  the  polling  mechanism  of  IAH

 yeah  that  way  we  save  quite  a  lot  of  webspace  as  wellwe  remove  the  entries  which  don't  win  and  keep  only  those  that  win  in  a  thread

 yes  thats  important  and  thanks  for  bringing  it  out  again
 post  processing  is  good,  but  if  the  picture  deviates  a  lot  from  the  actual  picture,  the  pic  gets  disqualified

 Yes  i  do  think  by  keeping  it  theme  wise  judging  becomes  easier,  but  there  shall  be  lesser  entries,  but  when  we  keep  it  anything  aquatic,  there  is  always  a  larger  participation
 
 and  as  the  judging  is  done  by  the  members,  where  the  pics  owners  are  kept  anonymous,  we  shall  have  a  fair  competition
