I've been on this site, enjoying this site and its artists for awhile now. Yes, there's some that come up with FANTASTIC, OVER THE TOP ideas each day...due sometimes to the Advantage Factor...but there's alot of us without that advantage and limited on time who have FABULOUS IDEAS, GOOD WORK, ETC. ETC. and barely a vote is cast by those who reign over all DAY AFTER EFFING DAY. My question is....are those on top casting votes...all their votes OR just basking in the limelight, smug and satisfied that VOTES are all that matters. Yes, I know I'm putting myself out there for all kinds of ridicule and sh#t but wtf!!! Let's hear it! What's your thoughts?

I know marcos and reyrey, two of those on top...have been very good to me. But I do understand where your coming from. I mean I get as few as 50 people even looking at my work. Of if you average it out, if I get 15 votes from 50 people Im doing pretty good. I dont have advantage either and I know that some of my work isnt the best. I do know I've had some pretty good stuff with limited viewing. But oh well...its still a joy to come on every morning and see what the pic of the day is and try to come up with something to chop it into. I try to get this done within an hour or so.

I vote because some one way more smarter than me, put a little vote button on the bottom of each image. I wish I knew how they did that......

Check this out as well, makes good reading.

Geeesch! Sorry I didn't know you had a huge debate over but read most of it. Bottom line is doing the best you can and having fun which I do. Still, just interested if everyone uses all their votes. Some of the best entries are very late and no one views them.

Okay, end of subject.

I make sure I save five votes for the last night of a contest, so that I don't have to put one of those "I would vote, but I'm all out" messages. That's like turning down trick-or-treaters because you gave kids who showed up the first hour a whole handful of candy.

Then again, I'm hardly ever right about anything, so...take it with about fifty grains of salt.

Heeeelllooo!
We all do this for fun.At least I hope so. If you get 100 votes or only one vote, you know that someone else likes your work. Im an amateur and this is only a hobby for me. Every single vote I get is great. I have good ideas but dont have the knowhow. Every day Im learning something new. Maybe some day well all be the winners. Be patient.

What I'm saying has nothing to do with winning. I'm just wondering if everyone is using their votes or just receiving them. I keep some aside too. Some late entries on the green bench were fabulous! and others too. We're also all in different time or space zones (more inclined on the space zones) so not all entries are presented at the same time.

Queen, I love your analogy -- it's perfect! (sorta like your entries...)

I am going to assume that whatever the weirdness was with this site running funky last night is why my comments disappeared and not that they were pulled.

I am going to try to be clear about this.
Are you ACTUALLY saying that the top vote getters don't bother to vote?

Scion, just for you, I'll try to type very slowly. I am asking if everyone tries to use all of their votes or post their entries and that's it. The good that's come from this forum, I think, is that we're realizing that some very good chops are coming in late, thus, some have chosen to save some votes until they've seen all (or at least the thumbs that look interesting).. Also are artists aware that they can use their remaining votes up to several days after the contest?

Anyway, to be clear, I'm not implying that they're NOT voting rather asking how many on this site try to use all of their votes. ok?
