A 'Prizeless Round'

After a month (almost) of inactivity on the Photocomp scene here's a round for the month of February...

Sorry but there will be no prizes for this month but otherwise all other guidelines apply.

Up to three entries per competitor, only entries which are the original work of the person submitting the entries, entries only acceptable which have not previously appeared on this Forum - or anywhere else, for that matter.
There is no need to resize the images for Competition purposes - and GOOD LUCK to all entrants.

Please send in entries (if any) to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. as attachments to the email and - one last thing, PLEASE remember to add your Forum user-name as it really does help the organiser (me).

Oh yes, no specific topic - just as long as the image-entries are either Fish or Fish-related.

Is there any chance you can 'pin' this as the first post everyone sees, rather than it disappearing down the list as new things are added?
This might remind ones who have looked at the post, to post their photos rather than doing it tomorrow, as am sure many just look at the what's new section and so forget.
I don't know how hard that is for you or Darragh to do.
Anyway thanks for not giving up, I like seeing the photos. I will put one on tomorrow. :angel:

Unfortunately, with the Server now being used it isn't possible to 'pin' any postings to the top of anything but the actual Topic thread but so far as keeping it on top of the 'Current Topics' list it cannot be done.
However, we do try to keep it on the 'front' page - so to speak - by 'sneakily' (or perhaps not-so 'sneakily') promoting it if it goes from the current front page.
Thanks, though, for your input and we're looking forward to receiving your submission(s).

Good news,
James (irishzx10r) has donated a book for one prize:

[img]http://i305.photobucket.com/albums/nn214/irishfishkeepers_photocomp/Johns%20Crap /James%20book%201_zpstbdfls7w.jpg



It's an interesting book - he was kind enough to let me have the loan of it while I was 'indisposed' last year.
But the main thing is we now have a prize which (hopefully) will encourage some more entries.

Thanks James.

Same here I love looking through all the photos and trying to guess the winner.

John
I delighted someone else might get some use out of the book. On the subject of pin the post maybe a bump on the post from yourself every few days might keep the post to the top unless there is enough photos to post every few days to bump the post.

Something fishie going on here

Here's the bit from my earlier post (a 'terrible confession')...

However, we do try to keep it on the 'front' page - so to speak - by 'sneakily' (or perhaps not-so 'sneakily') promoting it if it goes from the current front page.

Just to bump this up again,

I had a great surprise today when I got a very nice parcel from Sebastian at Tropical in Limerick. (Rsgeeenline) who were the sponsors of the December round.
It was a good variety of sample fish foods and 20g containers of food. Plus a pen, catalogue and t.shirt!
I look forward to seeing what my fishing think of different foods.

Thanks very much for the generous prize.
