    ...seriously though, if I end up being the supervisor instead of one of the mods, I'll just abstain from voting. Actually, I usually don't vote at all so how about I don't vote at all? Nepenthes are *all* my favorites

    That only works for private voting, where you have to invite each person that wants to vote by email.. so I don't think that way is done.

    I figure the rules are fine as is - though I don't care if anyone reenters the same pitcher over and over though I know I'd be thinking "that one again?".

    The 6+ months growing in your possession is totally fine by me - these are long term plants and 6 months is nothing in the big picture of Nepenthes growing. I never enter anything or vote but I have wondered why the voting isn't done on a TF poll instead of outside. And that IS one of the reasons I don't ever vote, if it were a vote held on TF I'm sure I would at least vote.

    Yeah that is a good idea. Create a poll with the entries. It would make it easier to tally votes and such.

    IDO about the rules. Havent really read them. The 6 month rule is fine, but for someone like me I didnt till recently start keeping track of the dates I aquired plants. and frankly that is the only rule I know. LOL

    Err, I think voting should be limited to selecting the top three, that way the persons on the bottom won't be hurt. Plus those results are the only ones that matter.

    I think that rule number nine should be changed or remain the same. I think that if someone has a flowering sized rajah they probably have something else nice they can enter and they would avoid entering the same plant twice.

    I think the six month rule is great, I think it allows the true skill of the grower to be seen.

    I totally agree. I also think that it would be best to hide the results while the competition is going. Then, when the results are announced, only the top three will be announced.

    I voted to keep rule eight the same too. I think six months is the perfect amount of time for you to have the plant. I think that after six months, you aren't entering your plant from someplace, you're entering your plant.

    On rule nine I voted to keep it the same. I think that the chances of winning in the top three repeatedly may be slim. I think the pattern we would see is someone placing every three or every other month. People might not be as quick to realize that it has won just recently.

    FYI: Vote on rule 11 has been changed for another person to "change rule".

    Could you please change my vote to "change rule"? Thanks!

    I have a suggestion for another rule: No image editing besides cropping. It's pretty easy to enhance a picture, or brighten it. People could use this to brighten colors, or darken reds on certain plants. I think cropping should be allowed though, because it dosen't alter the colors of the picture. Just a thought...
