    Hey Everyone,

    I want to start doing monthly tarantula photo contests. How many of you would participate if we started this month? The winner would be prominently featured on the homepage for everyone to appreciate.
    A little competition is good, right? :)

    It could be interesting. What do you have in mind?

    One photo per member per month. Submit your photos via email to remain anonymous. We all vote and the photo with the most votes gets the prestige of winning for that month and being featured on the home page. If we get some vendors interested in donating small prizes, that would be great as well!

    I meant for my question to be a bit more specific, like would there be a general theme for contests (like on GeckoTalk, for instance), or just random awesome spider pics?

    Some awesome photos here! Can anyone put them randomly together on one image and number them? That way we can set up a poll and start the voting? I may be able to get to it tomorrow, but it's Halloween, so no promises! :) ;)

    Oh, that's horrible. Where was the bin? Did someone just try to throw her away?
