I keep saying I am going to hide my scores but I always turn them back on. So who hides their scores? Are you happier that you do or do you miss the update button?

I usually keep them on for the first 20 or so votes, then off until about middle of the week when I check, then check again on the last day.
Eta, I do prefer having them off

I leave them on. It's a study in human nature.

I leave them on. Half the fun is whining or bragging in the scores thread.

Do you have a problem if you wake up in the middle of the night and the first thing you think of is the update button?

Lately I have been switching the update button off, that's due to my scores being on the low side. High scores means my addiction gets worse.

I always hide my scores. My theory is that I only have to be disappointed once instead of a whole week. I currently have no idea how my free study is doing.

I hear you. I woke up at 3am and thought I should check my FS. I thought better and went back to bed.

So I'm not the only one who wakes up a stupid o'clock just to see how an image is getting on and sometimes waiting for that first vote.

...going to bed late (after 12pm ) and getting up at 6 makes me miss only 5 voting updates...it´s like addiction, but a nice one
08/01/2012 04:49:07 PM · #16
I show my score. Keeps my blood pressure up... Haha
08/01/2012 04:50:53 PM · #17

4am.? Not 5?

I haven't checked mine in years... mind you I haven't played much in years either so it truly isn't much of an effort for me.

I turn mine off.
Although of lately I submit junk work to this site so I don't really care.
08/01/2012 08:14:41 PM · #25
Tried to turn mine off a few times but no success there, just made me all the more anxious to see my score!!! So I leave it on cause I'm a masochist at heart.
