Smile Will there be next top model competition??

I know that over at talkbudgies, next top model is one of our favourite competitions, and I was wondering if we'd be having it here some time??

Why not? Don't you like next top model? It's not really like the TV show too much, it's really cool though!

And I know Nick and Dave definitely want to do one and know everyone enjoys it, I think it's just a matter of settling everything in and getting everything working on the level they want on the structural side of the forum as well as making sure there is enough members before they start it up! Don't worry, it'll happen!

I loved the Linnie Top Model Competition. I think once things settle down here it would be a great idea.

I would love to see Top Model here and will be glad to help out as I've done quite few of them now. It is the most popular competition on the boards so I can't imagine it not happening here.

For anyone who doesn't know what Top Model is in the bird world you can visit Talk Budgies..we have a Top Model competition going on right now. Lots of fun!

I'm sure there will be one sometime but i think Dave's saving it for when the forum gets bigger

They may not be your whole world but they do make your world whole

Thanks Caroline for the super adorable siggy!

Personally i think they're dull and they bring the forum down as they're kind of aimed towards a primary level. I just think they're obtuse that's all.

I don't want to sound like a party pooper but this just my opinion as a person who has a lot of experience on forums.

Also forgot to mention that they take over the forum when in reality the forum is not about pretty pictures but sharing knowledge. People miss the point of forums and obsess over pictures when the main focus should be about information that's reliable. I'm not saying it's bad to share pictures as we all know i shared pictures but i just think people take it too far about getting obsessed with seeing pictures and so on. I mean if you don't post picture right away when you join prepare to be harassed, god forbid you don't have a camera.

I apologize if i came off as rude but i'm just stating my opinion.

I disagree... not aimed at a primary level at all. The Linnie Forum is a good example as it it mostly made up of older adults...20 and up and it was just as well received there as Talk Budgies where we do have more of a mix including much younger members.

Members seem to always look forward to it so I don't see it bringing down the forums and I think there are many of us here who have a lot of experience on forums.

I agree forums are for getting and sharing knowledge, but it never hurts to have some fun as well and there can never be too many pictures.

Top Model in no way takes over the forum. On Talk Budgies it now has it's own sub forum in the competition section(as does the Linnie Forum) so if a member doesn't like it they don't have to go to that forum and members can also block particular forums that they don't care to read or participate in and that really solves the problem for everyone.

With having a lot of experience on forums then you should realize that there will always be some aspect of the forum you don't care for or things/people you don't agree with and there is a choice. You can ignore those things and let the people who do enjoy them have their fun. Admin has made it very easy to ignore threads, forums, and people if they make you upset or you don't like them.

If it were to happen, it won't be for awhile yet. Maybe it could be suggested (if not already) that a separate section could be made for the contest(s).

I don't see the difference between posting photos of your bird(s) and a competition which again, it would be posting photos of your bird, only it's for a competition - no big deal really.

Why try ruin the fun people would like to have? it's your opinion, but if it's been successful on other forums without problems then it'd go pretty smoothly here. Again, that's why I said suggest perhaps a different section for it, if you don't like it you don't have to read that particular section where the contest is being done - stick to posting elsewhere if that's what you prefer.

It's not going to 'miss the point' of the forums because there's still going to be people posting that don't participate, not everyone is going to want to do it, but for those who do, it's not going to make you lose sleep over it.

As for being harassed I don't see any member forcing people to post photos, they from what I've seen, post at their own free will.

I sure hope that they'll have one here! If you have a budgie and have an account on TalkBudgie there looking for a new budgie to be in the competition! because some one is no longer in the contest.

Everyones entitled to an opinion.
You don't have to compete, comment, or really have anything to do with the competition if you don't want to.

But a lot of other members like it so I'm sure most would like it to go ahead.
