|Well, here is my pmail that I sent to Orca regarding the contest:
I think you could open it to all Catsters to vote. You could post it in the Plus area under Fun or Friendly (I think I would do friendly because the fun area is mostly games and it might get buried there). In the non-plus, you can post it under Other Meows & Purrs.
The Pet Poetry group is having their photo contest which is open to all cats - you tag a photo
Christmas Bash 06
So, I don't think other cats would be offended (by not joining your contest) because there is another contest they could enter. In fact, you could even mention the Christmas Bash 06 contest that is open to everycat.
You could word it such that our group would be honored to have all of Catster vote for the Best Holiday Black and White Ankle Biter. I agree that it would be good advertisement for the group and anyone who might be interested in joining. Maybe the contest could just be for those black and white ankle biters who are members by a certain date. Then you wouldn't have cats joining the group just to get in on the contest.
You might want to announce the contest to the group first; see how many cats join in the contest; and then decide who is going to vote. I don't know if you have a way on your website of restricting so that you can only vote once a day. If not, I think I would definitely post that voting once a day is one of the rules.
