Can you explain the math that allows you to see what the last person gave you? I'm a bio grad but can't figure out how to do it!

Sorry. If I have 250 votes sitting at (eg) 5.4052 and then my next update states I have 251 votes sitting at 5.4102, then that means I have just received a 6 to 7. Sometimes I find the vote number is exact other ties a bit off...this can happen if somebody has just changed their vote at the same time.

What you do is times 250 by 5.4052 which gives 1351.3.

Then times 251 by 5.4102 which gives 1357.9602.

1357.9602 minus 1351.3 equals 6.6602.

But you need an update button for this and therefore need to be a member.

Also you can only really see the actual individual votes. If you update and you have received multiple votes then when you do the minues part of the equation you will need to then divide it by how many new votes you have received and that will give you an average.

I hope that makes sense. Sorry for not coming back to you earlier I was away from the keyboard.

I just received a 1, a freaking one on my entry just b/c of the object I used.. now a 1? I never vote anything a 1.... I really think someone is just going through and dropping 1's on everyone elses picture.

It is such a horrible feeling when they do that. I reckon it should be compulsory for any ones to be with a comment. But them's the breaks.

Yay! Just got my 15th comment. Thanks again for those commenting. :) It's truly appreciated. Makes my night.

My result is stabile now, but I received one funny comment from Hidden during voting.
It is: "looks very similar to another picture submitted for this challenge". Is this constructive comment, that probably this person also gave me low vote. So if he/she first saw my photo and then that other photo, other person will have the same somment WHAT THAT MEANS FOR THE VOTING OR CONSTRUCTIVE COMMENTING. THIS IS REALLY FUNNY!!!
I would like to know who made this comment!

Totally random story. While voting on this challenge, I had the following two photos show up in order...

This little light of mine...
I'm gonna let it shine.

Well, looks like I have finally levelled out after 5 days of agony. Not my best effort, but ok I hope, as most of the scores seem low.

no one is dropping scores by voting 1s to everyone. I give out 1's all the time, almost as much as any other score. Reason being that anything that doesn't fit the challenge = 1. No comment no nothing, just a 1. Examples are for this challenge, any sunset automatic 1. Any outdoor picture with the sun as a light source 1. I only give 1's for entries that don't fit challenge.

This is a pretty low score for me. And only 2 comments. Sounds like the voters didn't like the shot or the idea behind it, but not so drastically that they bothered to tell me about it. ...Working in mediocrity is not very rewarding, is it? LOL

Still a bit in shock after being at 7.0 after about 30 votes but I am happy with this score, before entering I figured it would do about 5.8-6.2 and I am extremely happy with the 5 favorites and 16 of the 17 comments so no complaints here :)

I thought this would be able to grace my profile. Voters thought otherwise :D
