Ok basically I think and a few others do on here that on the standings pages and the personal profiles of members the 2nd's and 3rd's should be included so people can see a better picture of how people perform

to illustrate this I have made these mock ups

what do people think:

oh yeah I obviously made the figures up, because of the exact reason I am talking about. It would take to long to go through peoples portfolios and compare stats against each other, with this implimentent though, it can be done in a matter of seconds.

i think the stats should only list the winning entry...
this just seems more like a ego boost.

It's just another stat... no more of an "ego boost" than any of the other stats. (I mean, if your stats are wins: 0; 2nd: 0; 3rd: 0, it's not going to be much of an ego boost. Razz )

I think it would be cool to easily see how many 2nds and 3rds one has gotten, as they are also very good accomplishments.

yeah but i've always thought this site was about learning and sharing knowledge w/ others...

having the 2nd place 3rd place stats just takes away from the learning aspect of this site, turning it into more of a competition site.

i mean who cares who comes in 2nd and 3rd?
they are nice accomplishments...but eh...

idk...ppl are never going to be satisfied anyway....next idea will be 4th and 5th place Rolling Eyes

this site shouldn't be about winning or placing in a contest...it should be about learning and growing as artists.

thank you, and enjoy your saturday Cool

1st, 2nd, and 3rd (as opposed to 4th and on) are *usually* the placements that are acknolodged in many contests -- it's the standard. We even acknowledge it in our portfolios -- why not have a count too? I think it's worth keeping track of (imo).

Also, if this site were PURELY for learning and sharing knowledge, it probably wouldn't be called Photoshop CONTEST. -- the learning and sharing knowledge is just a major perk of participating in the site; but if it were the sole reason for the site's existance, we wouldn't need *any* statistics.

I cannot re-iterate enough that this site is not intended to be a strict competition site. It is to be a learning envronment and community first, and competition second. We have been through a few different voting systems and this one has been the most productive for the majority of the users of this site.


this is from a different thread about voting....though jmh clearly states that he would rather not have a strict competition site....which i feel would happen if the 2nd, and 3rd place stats were implemented.

i think i made my point...someone put a fork in me...i think i'm done Wink
