I like that the names and information was deleted. I think that way the best photos are chosen and make for a better calendar instead of popularity of the person who posted. I agree that maybe there should be a minimum post or something before entering, but if it is a great picture, I would want to see it for a whole month!

I also wasted 8 votes, and only voted once. Shame on me for not really reading! All the pictures look great!

Do you have to be a member for a certain amount of time before voting so people cant just make a bunch of new accounts and vote for their picture.

Eegad! I'm glad I got my votes in before the deadline! Too many good choices! So many exceptional photos! That was incredibly difficult to choose the "best" nine. Everyone has such cute Chelonians these days.

I am looking forward to seeing the final tally and ordering my calendar for next year. :D

If I remember correctly, the site uses ISP numbers to not allow multiple accounts.

Every user's IP is logged when they vote/post so we will be checking for duplicates. Violators will have their photo removed from the contest.

That little tortoise, Alix, is so cute!! That little heart on his shell makes him the perfect calendar boy for February!! Let's celebrate Valentine's Day! Go Alix! The bright pink background is perfect for the month too!
Go Alix!
