Wow, I have never seen so many digits behind the decimal place. Someone is having a fun April Fools. I sure hope that is what it is. I am hoping I wake up tomorrow and it will have been all a dream. This is a first time I have and my votes so close to my views, interesting.

Yeah I also had the DNMC 1 comment and was so incensed that I reported the post LOL something I never do (so if it is an april fools joke you got me!!), but I think I am going to stop entering. We had such a dull muddy colorless month and I had a choice of four or so really dull pictures and because I am in the Freestudy challenge for 2007 had to enter something because I am doing pretty well but my score after 33 votes with 2 comments is 4.03030303030????????? OK D&L put us out of our misery it is a joke isnt it????

Edit to add : My last few entries have really bombed too :-( I am getting worse not better.

Lori, I'd love it if my scores bombed all the way down to 7! Looking at your recent past, you've had some nice scores and some incredible scores. Keep in mind that many folks on DPC have never gotten a 6, much less a 7.

As to the DNMC comment, yep, I reported it, too - as malicious voting.

If the SC is behind it, then fine, they can enjoy their laugh at our expense. But if not, maybe they'll get annoyed at the flood of reports. I'm just going to imagine that. *wicked grin*

I'm also just going to assume that all scores are 2.5 below the real value until proven otherwise!

dnmc 1 and my other 2 comments are from baggies also. If it doesn't come even close to where I think it should be I'll pulling it. Enough of this "joke". I don't need the stress.

I am trying to find the humor in this... if indeed the SC is behind it I believe they should let the "joke" out soon. HOw many others will go thru voting ripping off scores that are not meaninfful as part of the joke? How will it be set right again? I personally feel this raises questions about the integrity of the whole process and makes me wonder when else has the voting been manipulated for someone's amusement or other purpose.

Yep in the past four challenges if I remember correctly I have had a personal best, the 7.0 odd, but the other two have been personal worst scores too in the upper 4s LOL. Okay so they werent the most inspiring photos but I didnt think they were THAT bad, at least worthy of a 5.5 for composition and exposure etc. Hehehe.

I dont think that it will be a problem, It may be that a few more people have realised and jumped on the band wagon, but they will probably go back and change their comments and votes after they have all had their fun.

My score is BAAADDDD too. I was also shocked to see a "DNMC 1" comment right off the bat from a baghead. Hopefully tomorrow it will be gone and my score will pop higher!

This was the first free study I have ever entered, so I was anxious to see what my score would be this morning. I had always heard voting was a little tougher in free study so when I saw a 2.99 I was pretty darn disappointed lol. And i got the baghead DNMC. So I came here to see how that was possible to get a DNMC in the free study. So I read all the responses and now I am feeling quite better and a little more hopeful about my score (gee maybe it will go up to 3.99 lol). But can you imagine all the poor souls who do not come here to read the threads? They probably will not find this so funny and my guess would be, probably quite depressed as well.

Yeah, yesterday I shelled out $25 to renew my membership so I could enter this challenge. When I saw that at first I was not happy.. but D&L got me big time! haha

Yep. Pranks are always funny to the prankster and usually not so funny to the victim, at least not until they get it.

the same way you guys trusted it on 4/2/06. and 4/2/05. and probably 4/2/04.

true scores are being recorded, just as they have always been. it's just their reporting that seems to be screwed up for some completely unknown and totally not suspicious reason.
