Good luck with that. If money is rolling in then the crap just keeps coming.

I wish they would change their products and stop selling animals. I contacted them a couple of years ago about stupid small animal races they were having. All I got in response was a form letter..blah blah blah.

I doubt there is anyone on right now to answer my question, But I gotta try. Will I get to pick the main image for my entry? I am working on one right now and don't want the wrong image to be the one that shows up with the entry in the lineup.

They allow you to upload 4 pictures. The 1st one will be your main picture.

The first one I uploaded or the first one that shows in the list after uploading?

Crap. I'm not sure if I submitted my entry or accidentally wasted it all by finishing up wrong. If I wasted it, that was over two hours planning and editing pics to put in and all that.

Sorry.. now I'm not so sure.

It was. I just hope I did it all correctly. I just went through and I think I have voted 5 stars for all our people. So if mine shows up, you all vote for me too. :)

Well, I know now that I entered it correctly. It shows it to me when I log in. Hopefully mine will show up soon. Maybe tomorrow, I guess, since I noticed that todays new entries are dated the 23rd and mine is the 24th.

Edit: Uhoh, I just realized I put in a couple of .BMP pictures. I may be wrong above. Mine might get disqualified. crud!

I know petco sucks and all, but We need to keep putting more C&C cages and voting 5 stars for all the GL poeple to keep the cages in the limelight. I will be gone for a few days to visit mom. I hope to see a GL person win the contest. More for the glory of seeing a C&C cage on top than for the petco prize.

TexCavy, you convinced me! My cage isn't anything amazing like any of yours, but I wanted to get involved in this so I added mine :] It said that Milkyway's Harem was the "top rated" !

That was before I left for vacation. I bet we got beat way down on the order before it was over. I never got to look at the rankings again. Just now back. I guess they tell who won tomorrow. Anyone have a clue?

Congrats 3popcornpiggies!!! I think that is yours on the page right? I am pretty sure that's Lily on the right. :)
As bad as petco is in our hearts though, watcha gonna do with the prize?

When I thought of what I'd probably do if I won I decided that I think I would use it anyway due to my frequent tight budget. Or if I could afford to, I'd offer it to the rescue, but I doubt they would take it since they have better morals than me.

Not only that, but the description is lovely and very educational without being preachy! Well deserved!

What's the prize? A petco voucher? I'd use it. I wouldn't spend more than the voucher (for example, if the voucher is for $20, I'd prefer to spend $15 than $21) but they're not profiting from you using the voucher.

Oh, and a BIG congratulations to 3popcornpiggies!

Hey, you're right Kat. I hadn't thought of it that way. I think the prize is a $200 voucher.
