    Not bummer at all. We have a very big presence on GOOGLE. Any search at all for something tortoise related and our forum comes up in the first several answers on the first page. When non-members see "contest" and "prize" it encourages them to join and submit a picture. The first year we did the contest we gained many new members who submitted pictures but never participated in any of the conversations or threads and after the contest we never heard from the again. We want our MEMBERS to win the contest, not some Joe Blow from off the internet.

    I emailed my photo. Can I get a confirmation that it was received. I'm a little paranoid that it didn't go through.

    I agree completely! If new members are interested they can stick around until the next contest!

    Also, photo sent! It was nearly 10MB, let me know if you guys didn't get it.

    Photo sent about 20 minutes ago :p

    I too agree with the noob rule. I'm a member of another forum [not related to tortoises] they do a thing every year where you have o have over a thousand posts and be a meMber over a year. So they're pretty lenient here.

    I received a confirmation email that mine was received. If you did not it may just be that you sent yours in more recently and he didn't get around to it. The best way to tell at this point will probably just to wait and see if your picture is among those that get posted, lol.

    Last year they had a seperate thread for voting but that was when they did submissions via posting in the thread so I would not be totally surprised if voting ended up in this same thread. But who knows. I am anxious as well to see the entires and vote. The Voting process was not spelled out very clearly in the OP.
