It's nuts when you have a dozen more entrants than voters in a challenge. There is NOTHING wrong with voting in a challenge you have entered, NOTHING. I do it ALL THE TIME and routinely have give 10's and 9's and 8's with absolutely no regard for how my image is doing. Just over half an hour left before roll-over . . . and I have 37 votes when there were 49 entrants.

It's very saddening.

All true but those who enter and don't vote also don't read these messages.
If I didn't vote because I had an entry I would not vote at all! ;)

Nikki, I totally agree. I vote on every challenge, pretty much, this one included (though I forgot to enter).
I will NEVER understand how anyone would want to put an entry into a challenge that gets decided by votes and then not vote themselves. IMO it totally defeats the purpose of the whole thing.

I don't know who reads these threads and who doesn't but we have had discussions on this topic and apparently we can't do anything about it. Unfortunately.

And yes, it's very saddening. I'd call it infuriating.
