    hey masa admin:wave2:

    What about best pic of live stock corals and/or invert of the month competition every month?

    this will increase the members(newbies) skills of taking pics and interact more with their aquariums.

    just a suggestion, who is going to back me up on this one? :thumbup:

    What if you had to play the competition then take the pics(with the people permission) and put them on your id thing?

    If we do it I don't think there will be a limitation that it has to be your own tank. The only limit would be that you legally own the photo, ie. you took it. (and obviously that you give MASA permission to use it)

    great idea, but a little limiting...i post a few pics on here, yet sark (dear I say that???:)) have a pic of the month com so i actulaly only post a few pics on there, most come in here. Just sort of "well if u wanna see my best shots only then i'll only give you three" mentality. Stupid but true! :)

    although i do take some pics for comps, so its not a bad idea to start with:) and i think its better to post on the id section...whipping thru the Ultimate reef id parade the other day and its brilliant to see what they have there:) so i think we help the mods a little first:)

    And that it be Marine related:)

    Need to get my A into G. Love the idea; but should we wish to make a spontaneous spur of the moment contribution, i would never think of doing a search through General Discussions. Is there another way of quick referencing
