That's a good thing! Have fun. Higher scores can be fun too - won't lie, but the journey has some merit.

True... And I really don't much care where I place. This was a new experiment for me...

And, FWIW, I'm not in a much better boat.

Difference is for me that I didn't put much effort into it and figured to place in the lower 15% or so (maybe lower?).
It is what it is.

That's the pattern I usually see, too . . . low key for me went from 5.8 to 5.18 in a few votes this morning. However, the lower score doesn't surprise me as I didn't think it was that great or that suitable an entry . . . though I did my best.

Now a week ago when I waited with bated breath for the first score to come in on my Overlay entry so I could go to bed happy and the first vote was a 4 . . . ooof like a kick in the gut, especially thinking that the pattern is to start high and then drop significantly LOL

in low "key" from 6.3 to 5.5 with the last five votes.

It’s also a consequence of the low number of voters.... if more people were voting, a couple of low scores wouldn’t matter so much.

Tell me what's your average vote cast and I'll tell who are you :)

I've been there myself so I know your pain.

What a coincidence, I just voted on the freestudy. Though my average cast was a 6.40, so I'm probably not the responsible party.

One of my entries currently in voting dropped from 6.78 at 9 votes to 6.0 at 11. yeah, it hurts

I've entered so few challenges this year, I forgot what it was like to get trolled! Dropped .4 in a few votes. :(
