Ha! I forgot about the 1 - 10 fiasco!

What a silly nightmare that was. Laughing

An old saying that still holds true today...

"If it isn't broke.... don't fix it"

Even though I originally stated that I wasn't bringing the topic up as a complaint and that I loved the site the way it is, I kinda figured that the topic would get carried off in that direction. Once again, I had NO IDEA of the terrible history of this subject and thought (naively) that I had an original idea. All I wanted to accomplish was to hear other members' opinions on the subject..........and I got them. Shocked

The last thing I want to turn this forum into is a complaint factory. My original intention was to try to have normal relaxed brainstorm with other members and, instead, had my words misconstrued and accidentally re-opened some sore subject.

I'm going back to chopping. See ya....

I agree with all you said. I was only commenting on a system of voting because I saw this forum.I like the way this works, but, if someone is looking for suggestions I was trying to offer another way.

Only way IMHO the voting field can be leveled is if no names are posted for entries.

Than we miss the comments and advice (and the jokes). After the contest nobody read it anymore. Gone and forgotten. And I will miss them for sure.

For each contest, it would be nice to be able to vote for a single entry twice. Maybe they could put in a button that says "first place vote" that would give two votes instead of one, and then disappear after being used once in a contest.

yeah that would never get abused...
Not saying you would DoaC... but come on, friendly voting is already a problem, now you want to give people the power to give one of their friends 2 votes?! Rolling Eyes Besides, just cause you think something is worth first place, doesn't mean I do.

if it means THAT much to you, just use one vote for your "first place entry" and don't vote on the other entries.

You would obviously use your first place vote on something else then, wouldn't you?

And this would be a damn depressing place if everyone would just give out a single vote...

Exactly. But people will always abuse the system. Be it a 1 - 10 voting system or 25 friendly votes, or in this case giving someone 2 votes....This topic is so over done. Votes need to be this way, or that way, or lets do 1 vote or give out unlimited... I don't think your the first to ask for 2 votes for one entry either...

We all just need to deal with the fact that its never gonna be a perfect system, and what you or I may think should win, isn't always gonna. Darn art being subjective and all...

Personally, I don't like the idea of giving 2 votes to any one entry. And if it were an option, I'd probably abstain. It just seems wrong to me, that one persons opinion means more than the community as a whole. Like voting for the person you'd like to see be President twice. And besides, unless its for a prize... who really cares who wins? 9 times out of 10 in prize contests, the best in show wins anyway.

Final summation... Go vote for what you like and don't worry about what others like or dislike... If you like something so much, favorite it. For me, that means a whole hell of a lot more than if I get first place in a regular contest...

my inflated two pennies.

Amen! Having something of yours added to somebody's favorite's list is an amazing achievement.

Completely agree. For me this site is more to fine tune my editing (which needs serious work) Rather than to sit and get the most votes, most importantly, YOU have to like your work...what does it matter what other people "vote" or don't? I mean sure it's nice to get feedback, but a vote isn't feedback, someone telling you what they think about the image is feedback.[/quote]
