    I totally agree with it being a popular event on the forum and I always look forward to it. Unfortunately, I had never been able to get the calendar because it wasn't affordable for a college student like me lol. I've had a lot more jobs to work this year though, so if the calendar contest happens I would love to purchase one for 2020. Even if it doesn't, I can afford to pay for platinum membership and will probably be buying in the next month or so.

    Even if it isn't a calendar contest, something like it definitely gets the community altogether. I would love to see an artwork contest personally

    I fully understand that the struggle is real and why do it if it don't pay and especially if its a pain in the ***, however, I recall all the past years participating in this that there had to be a vote to just get down to 12. Maybe happened before my time here I don't know.

    But I know I look forward to these. My shell babies have never made it in but that's ok I enjoy seeing other people's. as for it being to hard or not profitable is a reflection on those running the show. There's more then one way to skin a cat, I fully believe if there is a will there is a way but apparently not here for this anymore.

    Lol for real my iPad struggles hard to get on this site sometimes cause of the adds

    This is probably stupid but I'm gonna say it anyway;
    If keeping the site up is so expensive, couldn't the cost be offset by making available cool shirts and calendars :p

    And people who enter to get their shell babies on anything ( shirt/ calendar) don't need to be rewarded with gift cards and other bs just having their loves face featured on something is prize enough.

    Quite often sales don't pay the cost to have the shirts or calendars made.

    Figured, that's why I felt stupid for saying it but still how many members does this forum have? It's just sad.each member can't cough up some dough so it would cover the cost of shirt mugs calendars ect
