I like the idea of adding to the care sheets, or maybe some informative how to posts on plant care and usage and how to do backgrounds and other tank structures so that they can all be easily found for beginners.

What about doing some video editing? We don't really have enough videos or youtube frog stuff? What about some video work and such? A contest on best frog video.

I like the belly shots. As good as the ideas of biggest frog room, innovative concept, etc., I think that those would prevent some from entering. Belly shots would allow everyone to enter.

Had this one on Monster Fish Keepers last year for halloween: A pumpkin carving contest. A few people carved out some amazing fish in a pumpkin (check out the picture)... It ended up being really cool. Obviously on here it would be for frogs though.

i vote for the pumpkin carving contest this month.

I do think a "how to" contest, in which participants put together a how-to thread on a topic of their choosing, is a good idea for a future thread.

Everybody with a DSLR, I can't get a decent frog pic to save my life with my POS camera. Whatever it is, I think everybody being able to participate would be nice, or just do more contests. It would be nice if it weren't solely based on how long you've been in the hobby, or how much money you have to spend on it.
How about....
Innovative frog keeping tools... (slurpee straws, etc.)
Wacky but frog friendly tank decor.
Largest clutch (by genus maybe?)

I think that the pumpkin carving contest is most appropriate for a "fall" contest.

That being said, I think that a contest for "Best Biotope" vivarium could be interesting. There are a growing number of people on the board trying to steer their vivariums in that direction--could prove an interesting concept. You could award points on plant selection (how appropriate for that biotope, and for the the frog sp), background (how it compares with photos taken from the area where the frog sp. occurs), and aesthetic presentation.

I vote pumpkin carving as well.

I do like the idea of the biotope contest, but this would also be a contest where the winner has the most to spend on it (same with photo contests). Pumpkins are cheap and the whole family can carve a pumpkin together.

have a contest for someone to come up with a template for our tanks , so lazy users like me can say oh i have a nominant imi and i can print it and it will have location , diet , temps and stuff like that / maybe a picture of the frog and maybe a map location . I would actually pay money for that idea . I now use index cards that are not professional ! would be nice to just print and put under the tank in question .

pumpkins would be cool but as a forum and a daily slice of life for alot of people this site should have a seasonal contest anyway ! for instance , this time a yr punkin contest , for spring how bout best nature picture exotic and non exotic (cause not everyone can go to costa rica) but for something big enought to call a "CONTEST " we should up the ante and see some true skillz . but keep it dendro related . I feel very eminent about the idea for custom species id , that would utilize design , thought and creativity within the aspect of our beloved Dendrobates , be nice as well if the contest was sponsered by some sponser's and the final winner utilizes the sponser name in a small location of the species id tag ... and them make them avail to all user under our care sheet section ! be a good way to get some sponsor names in different places , i show sometanks at upstate herp in ny and not to many people have heard of any sponsors beside black jungle , i advised def nothing with black jungle but there are different people out there for a option !

Instead of having a best vivarium contest or something similar like we have in the past, how about we do a best morph out container contest. It's still along the same lines, but there are specific needs that go into building a morphing container. It also might be interesting to see how others are doing their morphing tanks.
