Hey bear, is there a way to make the voting pop up or organized like the photo contests? Those show a photo of each picture, and i think the same could be done with the DIY projects, showing the final masterpiece and have it pop up when people browse like the photo contest. Would get lots more votes that way i think

LOL .. its kinda funny you brought that up.. the team and i were talking about this just today and at this moment the program we have available to generate the photo contest wont work for this type of contest... its because of the multiple links i believe.. that said i am working on trying a few new things out with the current program for regular posts and what editing abilities i have ....
one suggestion would be to make the "final post" have a pic that you want to show on the main contest entry .. i can then see if i can edit it into that post.. i have a spot i am testing this in now and if it works this would be available to those who enter....
i will keep you all posted as to if it can be done or not as i get all of the tests out of the way....

so i played around a bit and this is what we can do (if you all like we can add this to the rules for future contests)
the day of or the day before a contest ends each participant will make a post in their thread titled "final pic" and that pick can be moved to their enty in the contest thread by a moderator (typically myself) ...... if that works for every one let me know and i will amend the rules for the next contest .....

yes that would be great, although the work put into the these projects should be represented as much as the final product i dont think voters will have the time to really read through each worklog thread anyway.

i would hope that they do take the time to read through.... not only to hopefully inspire some folks to take up the tools and make something or make something better but to help folks explore the potential issues with a build.... i can say from my own experience seeing other peoples builds and struggles helped to work out some of my own issues with various plans in the past... if they dont well i guess that is really a loss to them but for those who worked at the project and for those who are going to attempt them i think the write up and the posting of issues along with solutions (or failures) is incredibly valuable....
not saying you disagree in any way i am just writing for those following along who may take an interest...

No i totally agree with you, but its unlikely that every voter will actually read the logs. IE, looking at rechigh's log, i know my setup will now be a soil setup so im debating if i should skip the filter which will greatly impact how other parts of my tank will be modded. since now i will have tons of space if i skip it and my water circulation will be much more manageable.

Perhaps someone can create a subfolder in this forum category for completed logs and a mod can move the worklog minus the comments and close them in the thread so people and look over them in the future to get ideas without having to go through all the comments and suggestions. I mod computer cases too and thats what they setup their forums as.

true, but it also discourages people from reading them when theres only 5 or 6 posts of actual work but theres 5 pages to work through because of comments and suggestions. Anyway, i plan to read all the original threads for each project anyway as im always looking for new ways to improve my mods and sometimes people offer up great suggestions that arent used.
