I tried to submit a photo for puffer of the month and have received no response. Does this contest still go on?

There was very little interest last time we ran it. If we get enough response on this thread we might be able to convince someone to do it again

Maybe do a "Puffer of the Quarter" type deal. IDK. I know things have been slow lately.

I loved the POTM contest. Regardless of it being a contest I just liked how it also served as a gallery for everyone's puffers to be seen and appreciated. :)

I hope it gets revived.

LOL Somehow I saw this coming. I suppose I could. I am guessing we could stick with the 5 entries and revive this next month. I could go ahead and do an official announcement at the beginning of August to let everyone know to get their act together so they can come up with something to show. The deadline is midnight on August 20th unless anyone feels the schedule and format needs to be changed up a bit.
