So as I was watching some contests, it looked like some people view entries on the first pages only, so for example in the toy copter contest when I was watching it:
The first entry by wiz on page 1 was viewed 288 times, 34 votes
Another entry on page 2, f*ck by anfa: 144 views, 19 votes
On page 3, curious cat 74 views
and the rest get less than 20 views.
What I mean is, and this is just an example without saying an entry is better than another, 144 people viewed Anfa's entry, 288 people viewed wiz's entry, so if I run calc.exe, the calculations will tell us that 13.1% people voted for Anfa, and 11.8% people voted for Wiz, which means if 288 people viewed Anfa's chop, and 13.1% people voted for Anfa, Anfa would get 37 votes! Now, let's say Wiz was faster than Anfa, and uploaded his entry three hours before Anfa, is it fair to lose 50% of possible votes within 3 or 4 hours? If you think its fair then, people in here are from all around the world, and have different time zones, so lets say Anfa was asleep at 3 am, when Wiz woke up at 6 am to make his entry, should Anfa wake up at 3 am just to get his entry on the first page? =/ Sorry if i'm complicating it, but see at least, entries should be randomized so people can get curious and view all the entries that are available at that specific time. The possible outcome of this is that, more entries are likely to be viewed by people, and that people won't be afraid of updating their entries and the overall quality will be better, and since no one runs out of votes, of 25 votes I mean, so as they're viewing, if they see some bad entries in the middle, they might use their votes better, but when they see a bad entry in the last page, and a worse one on the same page, they would vote for the bad one.
Thought of sharing my thoughts, since I have nothing else to do!
