Okay, I have a rant.
Most of you should know of the little betta contest that was held on here last month. Its in the contest section, the one that starts off saying "Lets have a betta fish contest...". I thought it was a good idea. A great one actually, until the difficulties and lack of Judge participation, or any updates from them for that matter, began to happen. Sure, they had the Show results out, but only after a great amount of asking by the people who entered their bettas into the contest and wanted to know the results. They never posted the pet class results.
Then they just stopped posting on that matter, becoming very suspiciously quiet. Everyone is chomping at the bit and angry, confused, frustrated and exasperated. I am no exception. Heck, I even asked a judge and haven't even gotten a reply from them, much less an explanation.
IF your going to have a betta contest, THEN POST THE RESULTS!!!! Its been more than enough time to gather them. Its beyond rude and inconsiderate to just leave people hanging, and not even TELL them where the judging stands, let alone have them go through all the trouble of entering and such.
Might as well host a beauty contest and have the contestants fight over the tiara the way this contest is going. The judges are clearly not doing their jobs. Yeah, I know they have lives outside the forum, but they've had MORE than enough time to pick a pretty betta to be the winner of each class. Sheesh.
I don't know about anyone else, but as far as I am concerned, I am the winner of the pet class and category I entered and that's that. Give me my trophy, prize money and let's call it a day people!
End of rant.
