Contests!

We need a contests forum over here! This forum would have THE best Next Top Model because of the varieties of birds! I would offer to supervise, HAHA. That would be fun, making up contests! But in all seriousness, we need a games and contests forum.

This is definitely on the list of things to come!

We've experienced some RAPID growth so far, so things may appear sooner than we had planned. Hopefully.

Next Top Model would be awesome! I'd love to enter Mochi, but she's already been in one... Maybe if I have a new parrot by the first competition I'll enter that one.

That would really be tons of fun though

A contest section would be great - now besides Top Model, what else could we have?

Rapid isn't the word for it. My head is spinning trying to keep up.
But contests are fun. The top model linnie contest was great and I could see the same fun happening here.

Contests will be a blast here because of the variety! Can't wait to enter with Goober!

We can do photo contests, size specific/species specific contests in the sub forums, halloween costume contests (you know you love it! ), etc! We can go crazy!

Although I think it will be a little while before we get the Next Top Model contest going, we may start monthly contests with a different theme each month. We have these monthly photo contests on the Linnie Forum and it's all great fun!

We definitely want to do lots of contests here. As Nick said, a bigger contest like NTM might not get started right away. Once we get into the groove with simpler contests, we'll add NTM into the mix.

Yes i agree, we need to work our way up, especially waiting until we get enough mods on here to supervise as we are growing exponentially.

NTM is Next Top Model! Very similar to the show on TV, there are weekly challenges which you take photos of your birds for, say fine dining or day at the spa. You would then set up some props and take a photo of your fid interacting and enjoying the theme, and enter it! There are weekly eliminations and the winner is the new Top Model! It's a LOT of fun, even if you don't get to be a contestant. The photos are wonderful!
