May We Ask When Will the 2018 Animals and Photogs of the Year Be Awarded, Please?
Many are becoming disheartened by the long waits for the yearlies; tending to participate less. The primary reason to participate is the awards, and for your loyal members, the yearly and banner awards are the primary incentive to submit frequently as well as promote the website by encouraging others to join and increase membership.
Everyone Loves Awards! Knowing when awards will be given and then receiving them on time is very satisfying. In discussions with other members, we would greatly appreciate having the yearly awards scheduled on a regular published calendar, like the daily and weekly awards are. This seems to be a modest expectation, especially for paid members, to have the awards manually calculated on a regular schedule until automation is achieved.
Thank you, and have a great day!Raphael RaCoon Brandsma
