Interesting point of view, considering how subjective that is.

Personally I knock off a point or two, maybe 3 if it would've been a 7 but I completely can't see the relation to the challenge.

Oh well.


It isn't always subjective, that really depends on the challenge. If I can't see any relation to the challenge, I vote a 1 for DNMC as well. It's pretty much the only thing I vote a 1 for, and I don't do it very often. The voting scale is 1-10, so if you aren't going to use it, that simply means you're voting on a smaller scale. Personally, I would like a larger range than we currently have.

For the past year and change it has been the latter, but I might get back into the swing of things.

If there is a photo I dislike, I will make sure to vote 20% so my vote for that one will count.

I prefer not voting, but of late I'm using the 5-6-7 keys exclusively. Bad composition or image = 5. Good, meeting the challenge = 6. GREAT = 7. DNMC = 1

Given that the challenges in the past year or two or three have been 100 entries or less, if folks are voting at least the challenges they enter, their votes cast divided by challenges entered should be 100 or greater. Does that make sense? If you vote MORE than the challenges you enter, your ratio goes higher. If you don't vote the challenges you enter, but vote other challenges, you might hit 100, or you might not. And if you rarely vote, your average would be less than 100 (in a couple of test cases, I found an average of 16.)

Not sure what any of this means other than I should already be in the shower and getting ready for work.... carry on!

That's one of the things we're looking into possibly changing.


That would be great!

it can be taken both ways and i cant wait to get pm's and read posts telling me how rude I and others are for not voting 100%.

oh good, something else to call people out on. :\

When it's for something positive it's usually referred-to as "acknowledging" not "calling-out" ...

I don't know, maybe I'm being weird, but I'm not crazy about having awards for voting. I'm not sure if I remember correctly but I think handing out the sparkle ribbons encouraged speed voting just to get a little piece of bling. How to get people to vote, I'm not sure. I vote and I vote a lot...I passed 100,000 given votes just recently. I enjoy doing it. I've been here 10 years now and there are always more people who enter than who vote. It sucks for sure. I like the idea of have special challenges for people who participate in the site other than just by entering challenges though.

Why not a challenge for people who have more than a certain amount of votes given? I know we've done things like that for people who take the time to comment often. I just don't care for the idea of giving awards for something people should be doing anyway.


You're not remembering correctly, the sparkling ribbons were for 100% commenting. Alice is just suggesting another version. I think if one member wants to hand out an award for anything it's not really up to anyone else if they should do it or not.


Yet I can express an opinion about it. They can do whatever they like.


No, I'm disallowing opinions hencforth....And I'm going to start giving ribbons out to people who keep there opinions to themselves....


Then we are screwed as we will never get one of those ribbons...unless you can make it really super sparkly and out of teddybears and unicorns or something. Then I might be persuaded to shut up just to get one of those on my profile page.

On second thought, maybe I'll give out ribbons to those who give too many opinions, something like this maybe?

I've hidden the snippier comments on this thread. Keep it productive and stop calling each other out.

SC is currently discussing this very thing, so we can also have "official" recognition for voting and commenting :)
