I like to talk on Parrot forums and what I like about them is that there are POTM (Photo Of The Month) contests every month. Its really fun!. Every month someone chooses a theme and everyone posts a picture or video related to that theme and at the end of the month people vote on what post they like best. I think this would be a really fun thing that we could add to this forum.
This is the Parrot forum **LINK**
Maybe we could even make up our own monthly challenges!!
Does anyone else agree with me that we should do this??? (We should start a protest :roflmao:)

We have a calendar contest once a year and during the SWS twice yearly we do raffles for our vendors stores on here. But I believe that's the main things the board does.
Am I missing anything @Mizzely ?

I believe the forum did something special for veteran members :chin:

I think forums contests are really fun. I know a forum that does heaps of photo contests with all sorts of themes, etc.
I basically gathered that AA doesn't do contests often due to the work, the staff have to volunteer their time to run them.
I'd be keen to see more if the staff are willing :)

We also like to have a tangible prize for the winner, which requires sponsors ;)

That's true. Some other forums generally have a free upgraded membership for X amount of time, AA doesn't have that so other prizes would be needed.
Are the sponsorships generally just from vendors, or do other members donate?

Generally we have asked vendors to donate, however we've had members in the past donate raffles and stuff so it's not outside the realm of possibility!

My mom misses helping me with Bingo. When I mentioned I might volunteer with a Bingo Tournament, she actually clapped her hands and went "Oooohh Bingo"

:laugh: So if Bingo ever comes up again let me know! :numbercaller:

Not the same as a literal contest, but Secret Santa here this year is my favorite activity-type thing I've ever been part of on a forum! It was SO much fun and I honestly don't think it could even be recreated elsewhere. The amount of work on the back end and the number of people participating was really beautiful!

We used to have monthly photo contests.
I really enjoyed them and there was lots of participation.
I think the prise was a new ribbon on your profile.

We have had random contests too. Just randomly through the years.
My Sydney won the "What is your parrot stockpiling?" photo contest with his rubber duckie stash :lol:

They have been a lot fun! But I think it on how much time staff has and if any vendors want to offer up a prize. Thou like someone said above sometimes the prize was a banner.

Its funny my mom asked how AA was and then she says "I really miss Bingo!" So I had to show her this thread :laughing2:
