rating is not an ideal solution.

I would prefer that you could RANK each post as you pleased, but you would only get one 1st place vote, one 2nd, etc. If one came along later that you wanted to place higher you would select it's position and the other prior votes would move down in place accordingly. After that, the math is easy.

Sounds like a challenge for a talented programmer.

Damn I'm good.

The only thing I don't like about the voting is that the voting ends when the contest ends so if I get my pic on there right before its done no one could vote for me and/or have little time to do so. If voting could continue for an extra day that'd rock.

Only problem is there would be another procrastinator complaining about it being open only that long! Sarcasm

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.
you'r right
So make the comps anonymus , but let us see the voters and comments, just leave the name away of the creator

If you see many "Execution" votes, then you know that you've received a "3" (in your proposed system). However, if you see mostly "Idea" votes, well then....that would be lots of "1s".


That's just absurd.
Think again Eve.

I know that I've only been around here for a couple of years and I hardly ever post anything and nobody really gives a shit what I have to say on the topic... but... if you really want to make the voting fair then make it so that all entries are submitted BEFORE voting begins and give everyone ONE vote...

Votes should be adjusted to the amount of entries.
1 vote per 5 entries.
More than often I see someone give all their votes away. That - in my opinion - is just being nice, rather then voting for bringing the best chops to the top.

I also think that a vote should contain two parts.
1. You HAVE to give a point to either Idea, Theme, Execution, etc.. (Our galleries won't change anymore if you don't)
2. You have to scale your vote from 1 to 5.

If you give X 5 points, then you can't give Y 5 points anymore, but 4, 3, 2 or 1 instead.

By this system, it requires you have seen all the images first, and even wait until the non-advantage people have submitted their image. That would be fair in my opinion to do so.
It also requires some selective thinking rather then push the 'vote+next entry' button and come back the next day.

I guess everyone has their ideas, but I doubt it will change the way things are now Smile

Ohwell... Laughing

Remember everyone....the U.S. dollar is on decline anyways so isn't $50 actually around $12.73? Laughing

The amount of votes given in any given contest COULD be adjusted to the amount of entries so that only 1/3 of entries could be voted for.
example: 20 entries on the day of opening means voters have only 7 votes to use. I'm sure someone could grapple with the percentages to arrive at more precise numbers but this makes votes more valuable. The entry's best qualities polls could be used as a way to finish off any tie breaking that's needed as well.
there's my 2 cents and have a nice day! Smile

Naw, in the old days (Olden Days) all comments were visible but all names were blocked. That way the author of the work could comment and have their comments read.

Wow! Did I just read an entire page of ideas about changing the voting system without someone getting verbally tarred and feathered??? (I guess the end really IS near! Shocked )

Yah, things are really boring here now.
