5.0 after 2 votes. Not distracting enough or too distracting, perhaps?

I've just had a look through and there's are some tenuous ones IMHO, it says include at least TWO distracting elements so ergo there has to be two distracting elements and a subject as well....

Either way I'm at 5.3 oh my love of Dpc dwindles ever more hahaha ;)

Very disappointing. It seems I have no idea what voters like because I thought this one would do very well.

No no no.

You guys need to open your eyes more before you dish out ones, on a perfectly distractive image:

18 votes 4.66....that's an avg vote of 3.88 for the last 10 votes, for a pic that meets the challenge!!!

One comment saying they couldn't find anything distracting, I showed my 12 year old son what he thought was distracting and he picked it up straight away and I didn't even point them out to him !~ DOH!!!

I'm sure it will go up, it will go up, surely.....oh who cares!!


Please leave it up to the voters if they think an image meets the challenge or not. If the distracting elements have to be pointed out - as so many of the image titles do - these were obviously not distracting enough, even in the eyes of the photographer.

And if a voter finds an image to be overall harmonic it is their own opinion and their right to call it DNMC and vote accordingly. Obviously there are some of them, might have something to do with the image. PMs and posts in threads won't change that.
I gave your image a 4, BTW, which is above the average of your last ten votes.

Umm pretty sure you aren't supposed to call out the score you gave someone in the forums. Come on now.

he hasnt identified the image in anyway....

but the rules do say

Challenge Rules - Voting Rules
Voting Guidelines

Requirements

You must:

comply with the DPChallenge Terms of Use.
submit any disqualification requests as soon as you suspect a rule violation, but no later than seven days after the challenge results are posted.
vote on at least 20% of the entries in a challenge. If you vote on less than 20%, your votes will not count.
rate entries on a scale of 1 to 10. A score of 1 is a “bad” photo, and a score of 10 is a “good” photo

You should:

recommend an entry be reviewed for disqualification if you feel it violates any rule. To do this, use the “here if you suspect a rules violation”. link on the image’s voting page, and give your reason in the space provided. After submitting your requests, vote assuming the entry did not violate any rules.
read The DQ Process - A Voter's Guide.
keep an open mind to other interpretations of the challenge topic.
consider the challenge topic when voting, and adjust your score accordingly.
vote on as many entries as practical in any challenge in which you vote.
comment on entries using the comment box under each photograph.
offer constructive criticism with any vote of 3 or lower.

You may:

adjust the scores of entries you have already rated directly from the main voting page.
offer criticism, praise, or other constructive comments.

You may not:

give an entry a lower score because you believe it violates the Challenge Rules.
recommend an entry for disqualification for not meeting the challenge.
vote on an entry based on its server-generated thumbnail.
vote on your own entry.
vote in a manner that suggests an intent to disrupt the voting system.
offer or cast biased votes for any other user.
offer slanderous, rude, profane or inflammatory comments.
abuse the anonymous commenting feature in any way.
discuss any entry in the forums while voting is in progress.
hold more than one DPChallenge account.
vote from another user’s DPChallenge account.
attempt to alter the point totals for any entry in any way.

We will:

display all entries in a random order for each voter.
group entries you have rated with other entries of the same rating on your main voting page.
declare the entry with the highest average score at the end of voting to be the winner.
recognize the first, second and third place entries on the front page.
use automatic and manual methods to actively monitor voting patterns for abuse.
ignore the votes of any user we believe is voting disruptively.
disqualify challenge entries from, suspend or ban anyone who abuses the voting system in any way.

this is kind of interesting one then as all these score threads would break this rule.........

Do we need to split hairs? Whether its in the rules or not it seems like pretty poor form. It's just not nice and came off as rather insulting and scolding.
10/24/2012 05:34:55 AM · #19
Just to make me feel better I'm going to comment on every photo, so please forgive me, If I leave a lame one, might be b/c I can't come up with anything to say......lol
10/24/2012 05:35:50 AM · #20
I didn't give away which image it was, did I?

What the rules imply is you may not discuss entries in a way that can identify the image.

Otherwise these scores threads were completely against the rules.

Again splitting hairs. You know its just poor form. It's just not nice.

Can you please specify what 's insulting in giving a 4 to a photo because it is too good to meet the challenge?

I think it's more rude to give out low votes without justifying that in a comment (while I know that is not mandatory).

Poor form is to call someone out in the forums - and it is against the rules.

You can vote whatever you please. That's not what I'm talking about, and I suspect you are aware of that.
