. Same here I started at 4.6 after 4 votes and now I am at 5.7 after 16 votes.
This is weird as over the past few months I always started at around 6.7 after 4 votes or so and then steadily kept on dropping without ever rising at al and would then mostly finish in the mid 5ís by the end of voting. Can not explain the weird change in voting behavior but Iím sure my end score will be as always very disappointing

Lovely, lovely comment that makes it worthwhile. Score is, and I admit it, disappointing. Hopefully it's early voting days yet.

Up and Down...Up and Down started at 4.7 after 4 votes..then up to 5.9 after 18 votes then back down to 5.1 after 24 votes and now back up to 5.5 after 28 votes. Seems like the voters can't make up their minds or don't know what they are looking for.

UPDATE
So after 36 votes I was back up to 6.0 then started dropping again to 5.4 at 45 votes and now after 51 votes at 5.5

As I understood it, not if the title of the entry wasn't the exact title of the book AND nothing else. I only saw a couple I wondered about . . . but of course I voted on the image and cover and figured SC would take care of any DQ's that needed to be made.

Some are too lazy to google the title and get evil satisfaction from giving DNMC, sad world we live in :(
I wish we knew who they are.

Or how about all the entries that didn't put a title on the cover?
That'd be a DNMC for me. How many books do you see in the store without titles? If you answered none, you're correct.

EXACTLY!

And I'm guilty of adding the author's name as well as the title (I suggested the challenge, but did not suggest all the extra rules!) I'm guilty of only reading the Extra Rules bit where it doesn't say only the title. Description and extra rules differ.

Choose an existing book and make a cover for it. Your entry must be titled with the title of the book, nothing more.

Extra Rules
Your entry MUST be titled with the title of an existing book. Made-up books or non-book titles will be DQ'd. If we can't find the book on Google we will call it made up. Be sure and check before you submit :-)

This was already covered pretty extensively in this thread.

True, although I did not vote below 5. I assumed that maybe these entrants did not have software that would allow them to add text. You could say that maybe they should not have entered but I decided not to punish them.

Nor should you be expected to.
And I'm happy to see that the one entry with both a title and author as the image title was not DQ'd - appropriate IMO because the clarifications were made over the course of the two week period. Entrants who had seen only the initial challenge title and description and "acted accordingly" (adding: as they understood it) should not have been penalized - neither by SC (which they were not) nor by any voter (since the first and imo most important of our voting rules is "You may not: give an entry a lower score because you believe it violates the Challenge Rules."

Oh ffs....this is why I took a lot of time away from the site and am entering only occasionally. Silly crap like this rearing its head. 'Oh I'll just enter a decent but random pic and toss in a title and call it an entry....'

I expected, as I suspect most voters did, to see an entry. That looked like a book cover. Not just a photo that MIGHT make a good cover. And ta-daa!!! On the front page, all the entries look like book covers.

Just.Sayin.
