Welcome, PF members, it's time to cast your votes! We have 54 entries in 7 categories by 15 candidates.

Things to know first, please read:

1. Once you finish voting and save, the software will not allow you to go back if you change your mind.

2. You may cast only one vote for each category.

3. Your votes cannot be seen by anyone as far as I know, except Poodleadm.

4. Voting ends in four days, on Thursday 2/15 at 4:34pm. I would have preferred it end the day earlier at midnight, but technically I only had a choice of 24 hours from the time the this thread was posted.

5. I ran into some technical difficulties. We have 54 entries, but the Poll feature is set up to only accept 50 options. Thus, the Grooming Poll is separate from this one. Hopefully Poodleadm aka "The Sheriff", is able to adjust this for future contests and for the following technical issue.

The other issue is there are 17 entries in the Grooming competition, but only 15 photos can be uploaded to one post.

Thus, there is a separate poll thread for Grooming with two posts that show off those 17 entries. Suggestion: open another tab or window on your browser then you can see all of the entries at once.

~~~~~~~~~~~​

I appreciate your ideas that went into designing this contest, and thoroughly enjoyed hosting it. I hope it's been fun for you too. I learned a lot and had some surprises. I really wanted to give likes to the entries and to offer suggestions to individuals about editing and enhancing their pics, but since I'm hosting didn't feel fair. Expect some tweaking in the categories and minor adjustments to the rules in the future to be more clear.

If you do not win in particular category, you may resubmit your photo again in a future contest as long as it's fairly recent. And remember, we are all winners because we have a poodle.

Oh no! Dechi is going to have a fit. I was able to correct it in the post, but can't edit the poll itself and have PM'd a moderator to see if she can.

If not I will ask Poodleadm, but he's hard to catch.

On a positive note, it should be clear to the voters that if the favor #37, they hopefully will know to vote for it.

Vita, I would like to suggest that folks just get one picture in the various categories. It is somewhat confusing to pick from 4-5 photos of the same dog for example Vogue had multiple pictures and I had to be careful to choose the one I liked. Post only the 1 best picture.

I agree, but I did not want to be the one to bring it up.

Too many choices can be a bad thing.

Also, when there are multiple pictures of the same dog, submitted in the same category, it divides votes.

For example:
Puppy A, picture 1. 5 votes.
Puppy B, picture 1. 4 votes.
Puppy B, picture 2. 2 votes.

Puppy B got more votes, but puppy A takes the win.

Your input is appreciated, but I won't give feedback now since I'm hosting the contest and I especially don't want dampen the enthusiasm of ItzaClip/Vogue or anyone else who entered multiple fabulous photos in one category. It's a first for most if not all of us, and a work in progress.

I've learned a lot about managing this and have had some surprises, and learned what works well and which rules and categories should be tweaked. I'll go over these for February's contest. :angel:
