    2: Does BPOTM/POTM have a theme? or is it just generally the best/funniest/sweetest ect pic will get more votes and win?

    Any help would be appreciated
    The only contest that has a monthly "theme" is the Photo of the Month...which you can see listed in the winner's box on the home page...as well as a monthly theme update stickied here in the Site Info forum.

    BPOM (Ball Python of the Month) and HOTM (Herp of the Month) are both just what they say. Pictures must be taken by the person submitting them, and of animals that you actually own. (You can't submit animals from someone else's collection, shows, zoo pictures or wild herps, etc) These pictures can be funny or cute or hot or whatever you'd like to show off so long as they fit within the rules and the category.

    Hope that answered your question!

    Hold on to what is good
    even if it is a handful of earth.
    Hold on to what you believe
    even if it is a tree which stands by itself.
    Hold on to what you must do
    even if it is a long way from here.
    Hold on to life
    even when it is easier letting go.
    Hold on to my hand
    even when I have gone far away from you.

    Re: Contests: Rules And Procedures

    I feel like this may be a dumb question, how do I know that my picture is only 800 pixels? And if it's more than that how do I fix it?
    Thanks!

    I tried uploading a photo last month, but I guess it never got approved, because it wasn't in the contest.

    I uploaded a photo on 10/31/12 and I still don't see it in current entries. Am I missing something? I have done the photo contests in the past...but not for a while!

    I'm just SO far behind on getting the contests together, is all. None of the new entries have been approved yet...the ones in the gallery are from last month's contest.

    Will get everything fixed and squared away today, though!
