Default Hamster of the Month - January 2023

THIS COMPETITION IS FOR A PICTURE of A FAVOURITE HAMSTER PICTURE so the photo should be one that you like and would enjoy sharing. NO PHOTOSHOPPED OR COMPOSITE PICTURES PLEASE.

The theme is for a picture of A FAVOURITE HAMSTER PICTURE

Please do not post any comments about the picture. Please post THE HAMSTERS NAME ONLY. Any extra comments will be removed.

It's a new month so we have to choose the 'Hamster of the Month' for next month. The winning hamster will appear on the front page of the forum so when someone comes on to the forum they will see the picture.
PLEASE TRY AND RESIZE PHOTOS AS SOME ARE HUGE AND ARE STRETCHING THE FORUM. 600 pixels wide is a good standard size for the forum. Please try and do this as the huge pics are pixellated and do not do your entry justice. Please do not use photobucket for your entries.

1. This competition is for the August Hamster of the month. We would like a picture this month with a theme of 'A FAVOURITE HAMSTER PICTURE'

2. You may enter 1 picture.

3. The picture should be clear and as charming as possible

4. The picture must be of a hamster of any species and it must belong to you or your family. It may be with you now or have passed to the bridge.

5. Closing date for entries is 23rd December 2022 at 11.59pm GMT.

6. The voting will be posted and the new pic will be displayed in January. Each member will have 1 vote. The poll will be public and you may NOT vote for your own entry. Voting for another family member's entry is highly discouraged.

7. Please try and post a new photograph that you have not entered in a previous competition.

8. It must be pictures of hamsters ' A FAVOURITE HAMSTER PICTURE'

9. Please do not post any comments on the thread until AFTER the poll has closed. PM me with questions. Comments will be removed.

PM me with any queries. If you cannot post pics then e mail me the pic and I will post it on your behalf.
If you decide to withdraw an entry please let me know
If your picture is not there when the poll is posted I will PM you to ask if there is a problem but there is only a limited time that the Poll posting can be held for so please respond as soon as possible thanks.

Pictures that are too large or too small do not do your entry justice and people may just skim over it. PLEASE RESIZE

Looking forward to seeing your entries

I know it's not your fault Souffle but I just decided not to enter anymore as it took so long for the photo of Twinkle to be posted when he won the Halloween pic.

I stopped participating for similar reasons as above mentioned.

All I can say is that the reason for them not appearing was because of someone being unwell and sometimes that just can't be helped and especially at this time of of year we need to be kind and think of others. None of the mods can change the front page only admin. Fluffy runs the forum at his own expense which is not small and I am grateful for this. We have tried to find a solution to help him out and are discussing it. All the mod team are volunteers and I appreciate this too.

I don't think I was being unkind, just explaining why I hadn't entered and don't intend to anymore. If you don't know why people aren't entering then you don't know if something can be changed to try and get more people to enter.
I hope things can change for the better in the future and sorry to hear people have been unwell, hope they feel better now.
