I propose we allow the public (non registered users) to vote on a contest once a month. This proposal has two distinct benefits:

1. The thought of increasing ones popularity with non-members will draw more members to enter the contest.

2. Members will seek votes from friends and more, bringing tons of traffic to the site, exposing hundreds to the photoshopcontest concept and may generate new members. More traffic also means more money from ads, and more members means more advantage purchases.

The trickle down effect means more money to owners who will be happier to preform maintenance and enhancements and possibly provide us with more/ better prizes.

I'm putting this to a vote.

Would current vote records get shattered and replaced with poor entries that have a lot of twitter votes?

as much as I want traffic on this site... I agree with Glenn, Anfa and Shane.

bad idea.

need more reunion and H2H's

and need less opportunities for people who don't have a clue to have the power of voting.
Bad enough we were getting spam entries there for a while.

It's a nice little website. Could it be better? sure. Been going downhill ever since JMH left

he was the original owner and founder of the site back in good old 2001. PSC is 15 years old in just over 2 months Shocked

He sold the site in late 2006 (I think), it was unfortunate, but it was the right choice for him. Sad times, no doubt but he was very well respected, and still is.

Who's running the site now? Doesnt really matter who owns it, who is running it? Promoting it?

I've always thought this site had so much potential, but it's gone downhill over the past several years. Not sure the reason, may not matter. But can it be turned around and brought back to life? Don't know. But it's worth a shot.

Another idea is to open it up to the public and allow anyone to"Like "the image just like on Facebook, Instagram, Imgur, etc. But only members can cast votes, same as always.

That way there's a public presence, but it doesn't affect the outcome of the contest.
