Voting?
 
I have an idea for future contests. On other websites it is considered a way of choosing the winner. Despite the fact that the staff do pick some of the best winners, it would be nice for us BI members to have our say. Looking at some of the replies from previous contests, I have noticed that members seem to complain on certain details for example: "It's too blury and it has too much of the same colour".

We could vote on the winner using a system; using a poll or this:

-Pictureofentry-
1. Serenapawfectpal3- 05 May 09:40am GMT
2. ~~~~~~~~~~~ 07 May 04.30 EST
3. and so on

That would be the voting system I would prefer. The one that would get the most votes would be the winner (runner up.. etc). Before you nag at me and say it would be too hard because there would be too many entries, the staff would narrow it down fairly to the top 5 entries.
To make it fair, voting would be secret and not displayed. This is to prevent people from saying "Please vote for me! I worked soo hard on it!" or the voters saying "Vote for my friend!, and "Don't vote for so and so!". If shared, they would get a warning from staff (the easiest way to do this is to report their post to make it easier). Another way to do this is that their post would be censored.
I'm so sorry that this sounds too hard on staff but it's just an idea.
There will be some issues that have endless problems, that's just life.

Reply to Zoe: That would be really good. I like it. (:
Reply to Mist: What I mean is the number of votes. It is like this.

maybe the entrant's name could not be displayed so no-one just votes for their friends?
great idea.

Zoe; If it wasn't displayed you wouldn't know who you were voting for, Therefore you may vote for the wrong one.

Serena; Great Idea!

I'm not really sure what you mean? Do you mean like, say the top 5 entries we go like
1. so-and-so
2.
3.
4.
5.

Like put them in our order of choice?

I don't think so, because some people might not vote for the actual banner, they'd just vote for the most popular person listed.

Caroline4LeafClover465 05-05-2011 06:20 PM

Okay, so maybe this could be a solution?

All people who want to make a banner or something for the contest could e-mail it. Then the staff would narrow it down to like 5 entries, and in a poll, they would show just the banners.
And the people who would be in the poll aren't allowed to reveal their banners, they gotta wait till the end of the contestt

Well, personally I think that if we did that it would turn into a popularity contest and then people with a lot of friends on here versus a newbie would win.. but it is a good idea. :)

I actually like this idea. I mean some people might not like the banner that is chosen. BTW I'm not meaning me. I like the banner :)
