    Hmm. I have a couple of old votes left over from the 60s that I would have used for Bobby Kennedy-- I'll give them to auntiehill and Ziyal.

    I would have voted for rhubarb, too, but I ran out of votes. :(

    Words cannot adequately express how honored I feel to be receiving a vote that was intended for Bobby Kennedy! ;)

    I wish I'd found my Kermit doll in time to enter the contest. Voted anyway!

    awww :( But maybe we can start an ordinary thread about old favourites? Judging by the number of posts in the entry thread there'd be quite a lot of interest. And as I love frogs in general and Kermit in particular I'd love to see a pic of that doll =)

    I often wonder what things would be like if he had lived to be president.

    I have Kermit, too. He's about 45 years old.

    I have a bunch of old frogs. Frogs were my favorite stuffed animal when I was a kid.

    Thank you, Everyone. Teddy is grateful for all the love!

    I've never taken part in this before. I gather I'm supposed to start the next one or something???

    Oh, shoot, I'm sorry, guys! I totally forgot about this! Teddy and I are fine. New contest coming shortly!

    Unfortunately, I'm going to need someone to help with the voting post, because I don't have a Photobucket or similar account. (I initially posted before the contest tag went up, so I didn't realize it was a contest, and then I just flowed with it... :lol:). Do I have a volunteer?

    Are there instructions somewhere that I can't find that tell me how much time I should allow, etc.?

    I haven't entered for awhile, but I'd usually allow a week or so for people to enter, and a similar amount of time for voting. It depends somewhat on what day of the week you start the contest, as it's considered polite to at least allow a weekend for people who can't get much time online during the week.

    If you want to avoid duplicating what's been done before (or at least recently), there's a thread pinned at the top of the forum that lists the themes from as far back as we could find them. Locutus keeps it updated.

    When you decide on a theme, you should also have in mind whether you'll allow science fiction/fantasy-based entries and movie/TV entries (those forums have their own avatar contests). It's up to you.

    Oy, now I see why you asked what happened to him! :eek: When auntiehill posted him for me, she must've linked to my avatar, so when I changed the avatar, my entry changed, too. Damn. I have no idea how she did it, and there's nothing I can do about it now. Not interested in keeping Teddy as my avatar. :sigh:
