Someone took their frustration with the site out on my image, it seems.

edited to put this out there - I guarantee this doesn't deserve a 2. It may not be a gyaban-esque image, but that wasn't the intention of the challenge. I would be very tempted to literally punch this person in the face. How about I come and "water and fertilize" some of your stuff for you, because that's the comparative to what you're doing to others being hit with a undeservedly low score.

i'm exactly on par with you Anita. 2 /2.5, 3/3.3333.
One of my DPL team members had a 7 for their opening vote, followed by the low-voters.

I don't really care if they vote low on all of them it will all even up, or SC will catch up with them.

lmao, if I needed a reason to go back into my hole after dpl my current score of 3.4 is good enough.

If people don't have the brains to read and understand the challenge description they should have their voting rights removed. Am just waiting for the first comment to say 'but, your images overlap' and that will be the final nail methinks.

wooohoo a race for the brown ..

I just cruised through and wow what fun creativity, I think this will be my most favorite challenge to vote on and have entered yet.

Nice work everyone, i love them! I want to spend time commenting too this one around, look forward to voting but from what I saw nothing deserves a 1 or a 2 Less than a 4

Two votes and mine is 4.0000. I may ribbon with this ;)

Andi, "but, your images overlap"
07/15/2015 08:47:56 AM · #12
5 votes = 5.2. I was quite happy as I had a 7 after 2 votes:) Sigh. Still, looks like a high score compares to what's been posted here

Not me. I just looked through - no votes cast yet - and said to my husband, "This is going to be impossible to score. It's like looking at entries for two completely different challenges!"

I have not voted (yet?) and this is the first Open Challenge I Have missed in 8 weeks, (very busy and a tooth extraction and weather was unkind). I did try a last minute attempt late last night but it was too dark and did not come off so I did not enter.
I was however concerned regarding the rules as I felt my envisaged entry need some erasing of one image on the wrong side, if you see what I mean, making it more of an overlay or superimposed rather than side by side> It seems there are a few entries which have done the same.
I will watch with interest to if they are DQed but if I do vote the inventive real side by sides will be marked higher by myself. Thoughts?

5.25 - it's a bad joke

Vote as you see fit, it's your vote to do with as you wish :)

The extra rule does say You MUST use two images. They may be juxtaposed horizontally or vertically, with or without a gutter/border between them. Parts of one image may overlap the other.

Was really curious to see what you come up with. At this rate a 5.2 is good! A low 6 will win this one. I wracked my brain right till rollover. Sumbitted. Gotta take one for the team. Mine is a clean cut shot. Straight cut going through the shot(no overlap) but I think I entered the wrong edit in the end. Technically horrid. Alas my currently lowest score ever...

A fun challenge but something went wrong along the lines. Need a breather ;)

I've actually commented on quite a few already and can't believe the low scores, I found myself laughing hysterically at a few of them.
07/15/2015 09:38:37 AM · #20
quite a few dnmc's, huh?

I've not voted yet but only saw 1 or 2 that may need closer inspection :)

First 6 votes averaged 3.4 and the next 8 averaged 7.4 - go figure!
07/15/2015 09:59:37 AM · #22
Oh good, I thought I was the only one getting hammered. The combination of DPL, cranky "site was down" voters, and mixed message challenge description (gallery was only juxtaposed, description granted overlapping) has scores completely in the dirt!

Just browsed through the images and can't imagine why the scores are that low - at least not for 70% of the images. Not all are great, but some brilliant ideas here and there. I thought mine was one, but voters seem to disagree :/
07/15/2015 11:34:21 AM · #24
Am guessing that the voting 'rules' don't get read/followed? With all the people posting low votes it can't be down to the quality of images?

taken from the voting 'rules'*

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.

You may not:


give an entry a lower score because you believe it violates the Challenge Rules.


* the words 'rules' and 'guidelines' both appear in the Challenge Rules section - misleading?
07/15/2015 12:16:03 PM · #25
Another guess for the low opening scores?
That we have a few evil little trolls who come in and drop low scores just to see what happens.
If they get a bit of attention - well, they got what they wanted.
Now to figure out a way to foil their evil little plans?
