Not too much, but could be better.

I had higher hopes for this one, liked my idea and thought my execution was OK, maybe not the typical image and can see some DNMC type votes.

Very disappointed with myself. I edited and submitted from my phone and when I finally saw it on the computer I realised just how horrible it looked. Sadly but then voting had started so I couldn't reedit it.

85 votes!! We'll make the 100 vote check in on this one, I think! This is awesome!

Half way through voting. Happily surprised by some photos.

Given that this is DPL Week 1 and there are 24 teams, most with 7 people on them, I'd hope we get a lot more than 100 votes. Everyone playing should be voting, or you're really not participating.

My voting mechanism,

Voted my top 3 scoring 10, 9 and 8 respectively.
Voted a score of 7 for the remaining top 10.
28 votes with a score of 6 to those that I feel are above average.
Score of 5 to the rest for best participation effort.
I believe everyone should be minimally on the passing score.

You have rated 151 of 156 images (97%) in this challenge.
You have commented on 1 images (1%) in this challenge.
You have given an average score of 5.3775.

Pardon me from shying from commenting with the pathetic comment count of 1.

My score sucks blue tits on a witch with hypothermia on a diet.

But this is not what I expected, that out of 156 entries, that there would 120 votes, this late in the challenge.

Also didn't help that when I made that statement, I thought it was Saturday night. =\

Or it could be that all participants have voted on 80% of the images. They canít vote on their teamsí entries and at least at least one thread has encouraged people to abstain in voting on images they donít like (rather than those that are Ďpoorí) rather than give a low score (not that I necessarily advocate that myself).

Also, there is still time on the clock. All things considered, I think the voting rate has been rather good.

How you can enter and not vote is totally beyond me.
Surely that is the whole point/idea/reason.
I say all non voters require horsewhipping at least.
07/07/2018 07:38:50 AM · #21
Nice to see I keep up the horse theme.

This!!

And when you vote then you vote on everything you're allowed to in the challenge - including those you don't like. This is about honest evaluation, not about making someone feel bad. And while we're not required to comment on why we "hate" something, if you feel you don't like it and can express it then by all means do. Particularly during DPL this is a competition, not T-ball, and not voting on something that you believe deserves a bad score can impact how other images finish.

Just vote, dammit!!

Response to blue has been better than usual, more than 100 entries and more than 100 votes. Look at the free study for June for the typical patterns, less than 100 entries and vote counts in the 50's with less than 16 hours to rollover, thats why people are worried about the site and the numbers. Even the top images only get a few comments before rollover, seems a lot of the learning opportunity is gone from the site and the community feel. DPL helps some with that.

Where I stand on Blue
