We need some votes on bringing back the 2022 Calender. Lets tag the creators of it, and get our votes in so we can get ourselves an awesome Calendar of our shell babies!!! ? ?

whoever is willing to chip in for one, comment down below.

If we get another mod or two then we may be able to bring it back. It's a lot of work for the mods and also Josh. We don't have as many mods like we used to.
I would become a Moderator since I am on all hours of the day. But I probably would not get enough votes on here since I don’t have a huge friend list.

Not gonna' happen. People don't listen to the rules, and we have to keep sending pictures back for them to correct the size. We have to keep extending the deadline for one reason or another. What you don't 'get' when reading about Jamie's calendar is HE is the only one involved in his calendar. A Forum calendar has many many members involved and it's VERY hard to get them all together. There's always someone who gets his/her feelings hurt. Many members say they'll buy a calendar but when it comes down to it the orders fall short of paying for the overall cost of them. And in the long run, it's a whole lot of work for whichever one of us undertakes it.

I understand, we should not give up though on advantages of the forum. I think we should only have those who have a sold interest to participate to make it nice and easy. It would be nice to have things made every now and then for memories and support of the forum. Maybe even shirts, bags, blankets, etc. simple accessories?
That might be asking too much. But I really do love this forum. And having a calander would be dope, sweet, awesome!
The new calander can be made clear, that who’m ever participates are the ones involved in the calander etc. to prevent disappointment.

Yeah.
The qualifying photos then need to be judged, etc.
What we COULD DO however, is make a real plan for a 2023 calendar.
And maybe, hopefully it could be a yearly event after that?
I've started a new thread to see if it's even feasible.

Thread 'How many members want a CALENDAR?' https://www.tortoiseforum.org/threads/how-many-members-want-a-calendar.194789/

Y is just stating the cold hard truth early in this thread. I've been close enough to other "braintrusts" of forums to know everything she is saying is based on experience.

People are, for want of a better phrase, a PITA. Doesn't matter if you are coaching, walking down the street, or organizing ANYTHING....LOL....we try to be nice because we are taught that we should.....but they continue to "mess" up......leaves us shaking our heads, ruefully. Ruefully I tell you?!

Name the DJ who nearly trademarked that phrase?

It's too short notice for next year and such a lot of work for those who've had to organise production and post them out in the past.
I wonder if there's a way of doing a 'just for fun 'downloadable calendar that members could print off themselves to do away with a lot of the production admin and posting costs issues?

You don't have a huge friends list because you haven't been here long enuf in my opinion to be a moderator.

The calendar question might be more hassle than you realize...too many complainers...and stuff like the winner should be on the cover...I know someone who got upset because their tortoise won the vote, but had his picture posted in November...?! There are a lot of things to do that we commoners don't realize...too much trouble was what happeded...that's gonna change? Probably not...:)

I'm beginning to recall the many issues that happened trying to get the last calendar made...

Just a thought…put the forum logo on the front and let the winner choose which month they would like their tortoise featured. Its true, there will always be someone with a complaint.

I don't remember the last one...Bob was dead then and it just seemed to not be planned very well. Nice calendars once ya got them tho...
The photo file sizes where mostly wrong.
Then there was the issue of voting and some photos didn't get to be voted on. Then the international shipping thing...
Frankly, if I was in charge of it, I'd drop it too.
