    I complain because it's necessary. If it didn't, we'd still be dealing with swayed voting systems around here. For starters..
    The style of sit back and do nothing may work for you, but it's not me.
    So I'll get over it when I'm good and ready. Or until the problems are resolved.. whichever comes first.

    If Andrew wants my calender money, I feel I have the right to express some opinions first. No?
    My style is to speak with the person in private concerning such matters... which I had already done prior to your public comments.
    That is the style that works for me....

    I wouldn't blame Jon nor Andy for not doing this again.... and that would be a terrible loss to our community.

    And no need to make it sweeter, just take it to PM mate... I'm a big boy

    My last public statement on the matter.... and my apologies to the TF community. Most know this is not my style

    I think that the calendar turned out very nicely. It is my belief that the plants featured do not matter very much, as long as, holistically, the calendar represents the hobby all of us are passionate about. Jon, the layout and editing is fantastic! I'm honored to have my picture be a part of it.

    @chibae, kinjie: i understand your disappointment for not being able to vote for certain photos, i truly do, but from the vibes i am getting from other members, i feel that there needs to be a few misconceptions regarding the judging panel and the pre-selection process that need to be cleared.

    first of all-- amphirion =/= the judging panel. there was a total of four of us, and we did not pull photos based on a member's popularity or status within the community. rather on the contrary, I was the only sole individual who knew both the photos and the members they belonged to--no one else on the panel did. the photos passed through me, and i gave them a random number as their designation--then the photos were presented to the remaining judges. this was to ensure anonymity and that the judges could judge solely on the quality and composition of the photos rather than be swayed by the name attached with the photo. (and a WONDERFUL job, they did)

    each judge had the power to cast a vote for each and as many photos that they wanted to see go pass the preliminary round, meaning, a judge could chose all 72, or he/she could chose only 2 if wished.

    each photo needed at least 2 votes cast for it to advance to the next round. evidently that gave us the 36 which you voted from.

    so as you can see, we totally agree with you in that there are some submissions that should have advanced towards the next round. however, through checks and balances between judges, the number of qualified entries were reduced. what one judge perceived as qualified, 3 others did not. this is why many submissions did not make it past the preliminaries.

    i hope through this, you as a community, can see that we as judges did everything we could to make this a FAIR and yet high quality calendar. and i sincerely believe we did that. this is by far the best calendar that TF has ever produced...and it was because of the community--you guys made this all possible. you guys gave us your best, we wanted to give you back the best...

    Sounds pretty fair to me. The calendar is going to look awesome!!! I wish there was a planner as well. I use planners more than the big calendars.
