Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.
I didn't plan on doing that, but I will now I might need a boot in the pants if I get lazy though, so I'm expecting you to help with that now
1. If you think people *won't* get sick of the same pitcher picture over and over again, I figure it's good for a gag if someone decides to enter the SAME plant forever ya know? I think people take this contest too seriously honestly. It is serious business, but not like dead-serious
2. I can post in my balcony thread (see my sig) or for jokes here that won't get ranked if you'd like My plants are crappy cuz they grow outside anyway. I think it's unfair if the contest organizer also puts something in. There's some sort of psychological bias/power-struggle/getting-personally-involved-when-i-should-be-objective that gets enacted if that happens and I want this to be as fair as possibly possible; like refs for a soccer game.
And that argentii is WONDERFUL!!

yeah buddy.. you missed post #18 I think.
A "Plant of the Month" has begun, but what does that have to do with our POTM?
Not sure anyone remembers our short lived ".. of the Month" contests, but they were an epic failure then too. People just couldn't handle having to follow rules.
Let me set this straight here and now..
I no longer care to run the contest, it's rules, or anything that follows.
I simply have enough respect for SK and his creation to "try" and not let it go to crap.
Keeping the contest&rules exactly how they are (and have been for some time) is the only way to ensure TF's POTM contest continues month after month without issue.
I dont even remember why DOTM was discontinued, and COTM just took forever and was easily forgotten since it was held every 2 months. dont recall the rules ever being complicated since the followed the same rules (more or less) as POTM.
Also, Rule #9 has been pointed out as void, due to it's non-existence from the original POTM contests. refer to pitcherplant's POTM, and here so basically, the rules are intact.
All the best,

Congrats to Thez yo for stepping up to the plate and agreeing to take on and handle the future POTM contests.
I'm sure the POTM will be in good hands...and a lady's touch might finally bring some stability to the monthly contest here.
T, I consider you a friend, and so I am trying extra hard to understand why this is upsetting you. And yet, I honestly don't see what part of this is so undesirable in your estimation. I don't think I am being dense or misunderstanding, I simply don't see a problem.
Sometimes people want to try new things and that must be embraced, even if it is doomed to failure. You don't have to agree with it, but you do have to let it have its own life. It isn't really a failure unless people choose not to look at the reasons failure occurred. Our failures teach us more than our successes.
BLAH BLAH BLAH.....here...lookit some teeth. N.hamata (please ignore the photobombing alata on the right, he's a jerk, and I'll get a nicer one without him later)
Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.
