7 votes, admins can't be expected to run a comp for 7 votes. You can't expect any entrant to vote if the numbers are that low either.

In all fairness the total is now:

eight people have voted.

Just out of interest how many forum members are there?

Nine now.

According to the Forum statistics we have 2083 registered members - some of which have left the hobby (although occasionally one or two return after a while).
It's a bit strange, though, as when I looked a little while back there were over 600 people 'watching' - I suspect a goodly amount out of these are the 'spammers' who constantly apply to join (19 in one day last week). but there must be a percentage there of genuine Aquarists who like to view the conversations without wishing to actually join up.
Then we have joined-up members who log in every day, but never contribute.
However, at the end of the day it's the active members who make a Forum like this worth while,

We used to get more entries when the Forum sponsors could give prizes of vouchers etc, but even then it was a hard job to coax members to send in their votes - hence why we changed the system to asking the prize donors to adjudicate instead.
As there are four prizes donated this month it was felt that asking the four donors to be judges was going to make things a bit 'messy - hence the reversion to asking members to vote.

As to the question of how it might be possible to get more to take part, we have tried different options - the setting of categories being one - but that actually resulted in even less entries so that was shelved, although it was mooted again for consideration for future rounds.
I'm afraid the dearth of active members who are willing to contribute here is a large part of the problem,.
What we need is for more of the 'lurkers' to come out from the shadows and become active.

Shocking lads get the finger out

(I still going threw old post's as I'm only back)

But 8 votes that's shocking

Where the tongue slips, it speaks the truth.

A life making mistakes is not only more honourable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing at all.

Well Jeff,
That was from - as you so rightly infer - an earlier round but I'll be throwing this month's entries open to be voted upon in the morning so let's hope we get a better response then...

Thanks for highlighting the issue again though.
