MY scale and the DPC scale. At the voting screen it says 1=Bad and 10=Good. Couldn't be clearer than that.


I think there are only a handful of my entires that have not scored at least one 1.

That's still wide open to individual interpretation. There are some folks who tend to vote with a scale that is more Don't Like<--->Like than Bad<--->Good

Even the regular ribbon hogs get some 1's and 2's. Some voters are looking for an image that has meaning to them. If it doesn't speak to them, their default vote is low. It does not always mean it is bad, just that it did not fit their personal criteria. Unfortunately, these folks also feel it would be wasting their time to be commenting when they could be pressing on, seeking the occasional pearl. I'm becoming more comfortable with it, but it still stings to be told with a low vote that an entry you are proud of sucks.

How does this ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/988/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_762578.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/988/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_762578.jpg', '/') + 1) . ' get 2 1s? Malice? Jealousy?

Anyway, back on thread. 168 votes and 5.4524 and still dropping.

I'd be interested in hearing your definitions of "Bad" and "Good" that will be universally accepted as absolute truth by all voters, ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31_N.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31_N.gif', '/') + 1) . ' mikeee.

Someone could argue that those two ones cost me a ribbon, but in the end, everyone's still subjected to the same voting that has existed on this site since day one. It all comes out in the wash in the end and I am beyond elated that I took fourth, even with the two 1's.

I bet you would, because you know that there is no way anything could be written that would get universal approval. But my point was not that I got a low score, but that the my opportunity to learn the lessons from the master were lost because they didn't leave a comment.

A 1 and a comment is worth far more than a 5 and no comment.
03/03/2009 12:19:05 PM · #107
I think people that score a 1 or a 10 should have to give a mandatory comment. As an artist I would feel that if you feel so strongly about a piece that you should be able to exlpain why. On the flip side people would probably start rating from 2-9 to avoid commenting. Everything talked about in regards to voting on this site is a double-edged sword and everyne needs to take it with a grain of salt.

edited to add current score since this is a scores thread :) Booooooooooooooooooo LOL

This is indeed the scores thread, and I don't even have an entry. Thus, I'm outta here. I'll pick the argument back up as needed in one of the other millions of threads where it resides.

You havn't seen how bad my entry is for this coming week. I would like to prolong the current voting for another week, and forget all about skin/Self without people

Well I reckon you will beat me on this challenge that starts voting today...so we should get the couch and popcorn ready now.

If someone puts ACW (All Comments Welcome) on their picture title, I will comment on it if I vote on it.

My score is about 4.1 ... probably because people find it puzzling! hahaha
03/03/2009 11:12:02 PM · #116
Its going to be a fun ride. At least you will probably have a rollercoaster with the ups and downs caused by an 8 followed by a 1. I think I will just be on the slow slippery slope to the bottom. 3's across the board......

Couch and popcorn thought sounds like a plan. Your place or mine..............

03/03/2009 11:17:17 PM · #117
I was at 4.98 two hours ago. 4.99 an hour ago. I was hoping to get it over the 5.0 mark by rollover. Instead it went back to 4.98. Quit playing with my emotions. haha

It may pass 5 after vote scrubs at rollever...

This is so fun. I had hoped for a nice sub 5, but my expectations have been exceeded: 4 point 2 and falling! Really not sure if this is a puzzle or not a puzzle. Oh dear.

Let's meet at the bar...I am sure a few drinks will help the popcorn go down...or I may be able to actually hit the low voters in the head with it!!!

Do they throw out the top and bottom or something?

Nope...anyone who hasn't completed the minimum of 20% has their votes scrubbed from that challenge...also anyone who is a bit heavy on one area of voting...example...loads of 1's and only a couple of 10's.
03/03/2009 11:51:41 PM · #124
gee, the way people are going on in here, I'm almost half-convinced my 5.8 will ribbon! hehe.

(ok, no, but I'm hoping for a top 20)
