    I just want to say a few things about these awards...

    First off, I haven't pushed for the votes myself because it feels....weird, or disingenuous to ask for votes in a contest that is run by a company I work for. But I WOULD like to see BP.net roar ahead and show 'em what we've got. It could still be done....if the membership here really wanted it badly enough. We have the numbers to surge ahead.

    Second, and what I believe is far more important....is that there is NO cheating going on. Not even anything improper.

    How often have we seen someone come here and post a thread in the Off Topic forum asking for members to support them in some contest or poll they are involved in at some other site? And how often are we happy to go over there and support our friend/neighbor? Do you think you're "cheating" by doing so, even though you weren't aware of that other site before? Do you think that person is cheating by asking for outside support from their friends? No.

    If you have a site with 50 dedicated members willing to hustle their butts off and get lots of votes for a site they care very much about....versus a site with 500 regular members who might be talked into moseying over to vote once in a while for a site they take for granted.....

    How is that cheating? It's dedication and hard work...plain and simple.

    Yes, I'm a little disappointed that BP.net members don't seem to have the same competitive fire that other site members have. Maybe because we're SO big, everyone thinks that everyone else is taking care of business so they don't have to.

    But I still believe in our mission here, and I believe we do it better than anyone else in the realm of ball pythons specifically and reptiles in general. If YOU believe so as well, then get on over there and vote....AND...get your friends and family to vote, too. Even if we don't start a landslide of last-minute votes, at least we can make a better showing than we are now.

    Re: DON'T FORGET TO VOTE!!! Forum of the year on The Reptile Report!!!

    One thing that someone pointed out to me recently is that most of the members here are not regular members. Many members come and go. They ask their questions and become overnight experts and usually just move on afterwards. There are very few regular members if you really count out the actual numbers in comparison to the number of accounts.

    In the few years I've been here, I no longer see the same people who posted regularly a year ago or whatever other years.

    The unfortunate truth is that iHerp was winning BEFORE the vote-hussling started, when the numbers were first posted, by having the regular active members vote on their home connection daily. When the totals were posted last week, Bush League's thread on the topic started bragging about how they were getting customers/employees etc to vote for them. That's when we (iHerp) started the vote-hustling in response, and tbh if they were nearly as dedicated as we are, we wouldn't even stand a chance, it's only because they occasionally care that we're able to keep up.

    The same goes for bp.net! If everyone here participated as vigorously, bp.net would blow iHerp AND Bush League out of the water!

    I always thought it was more like facebook for reptile lovers though granted, I don't know much about it. I might have to check it out.

    In the literal sense of the word, yes. iHerp is a forum. It's not laid out the same way as bp.net. The "thread" capabilities are limited to three types; Blogs, Help requests, and Walls, but that doesn't disqualify it.
