Wink Betta Rescue Competition coming up soon :')

Hi guys!

So the other night, I was searching through these competition threads for ideas to make my own competition, and an idea popped into my head! So I guess this is me starting it!
I’m completely new at this, so if you see any flaws, please, please let me know.
I have moderators permission for this (Thanks to Saukra8)

COMPETITION: Best Betta Rescue Results.

RUNNING TIME:

Start

(Thread will be posted, photos entered on this date, or after.):
Monday, 19th November, 2012, at 5:00pm (New Zealand time)

Finish

(Photos MUST be entered by this date, any late enterers won’t be accepted, or judged): Wednesday, 19th December 2012, at 5:00pm (New Zealand time)

Results:

I will try and have the thread posted up within the week or two. 

TO ENTER:

• Post a picture of your rescue Betta that you have taken on the day you enter the competition, or the day/night before.
• On the finishing date, come back, edit your comment, and insert the picture taken on the end day of the competition, or the day/night before.
• Only enter one rescued Betta, please. Don’t forget to post both pictures.
• State which photo is BEFORE, and what is AFTER. Without these, you will not be judged, as I would like to make it as clear as possible.


RULES:

Must have a photo taken of the fish on the day you enter the competition.
• You must take a photo of your Betta on the day enter the final photograph.
• You must include dates of when the photograph(s) was taken.
• No double posting. No editing comments (apart from entering second photograph).
Normal forum rules apply!! I cannot stress this more!!
• You must state what tail type the Betta is, and also how old.
• If you don’t enter the second photograph before the appropriate date, you will not be considered “part of the competition”!!
• You can only enter once, with ONE Betta.


This competition is solely meant for tail repair


HOW JUDGING WILL WORK:

I will take into consideration

• Tail type: For instance, a VT or CT will take longer to recover than a PK, because of tail type.
• What the Betta looked like on first photograph, to the second.
• Personal opinion.
• If the forum rules, and competition rules have been met efficiently.
• Punctuation
• If you posted at the last minute (Earlier the better)


IT WOULD BE GREAT IF YOU:

• Didn’t post unnecessary replies: e.g. “Such a cute Betta” etc as it makes the thread difficult to follow.
• Only entered once!! Only chose ONE rescue Betta.
• Had some sort of “proof” of your rescue. It’s okay if you don’t, though.
• Include what foods, special care or treatments you are using on your Rescue Betta. Reason for this is that it can help others with their rescues in the future, and also give ideas.
Be patient. ;)


ALSO, I must stress, that this competition is just for the sake of it, the fun, and entertainment. I think it may help others who are interested in Rescuing Betta’s, and give them ideas on how to care for them. Although I do support competitiveness, I do not support snide comments, hate, discrimination, or judgement on someone’s care, lack of progress, or progress in general. Anyone who feels like they need to break rules and do something that can jeopardise or hurt other people’s feelings can leave this post. Same goes with when I post the results.


Thank you,
Moonsand0wls.

why would a vt or a ct take longer to recover...?

And I am confused... so I must rescue a betta within the competition time frame to be eligible?

Well, in my opinion, because they have longer tails to grow than a PK. But that's my opinion.

No. You can have rescued a Betta within any time, but you must take a photo of your rescued Betta The night before or on the date the competition starts, and the night before or on the night the competition ends.

You may enter, considering there is still room for improvement and healing on your rescue Betta. We will be judging on improvements, not what has been there from the start.

If that makes sense.

I see.
i do have to say that rescues may not be hit by finrot, but by disease and other ailments that are not connected to finnage :) Im my case I've rescued a betta who died from gill flukes without any physical ailments. his fins were perfect...

Oh, I actually didn't think of that.
I should make it for tail repair, because that's what I was thinking along the lines of. XD

You can ask one of the mod's to edit your original post as you see fit... to make it easier for them, just retype what you want to put and just have them copy and paste that to the original post.
