Naw... That's my voting strategy, not everyone else. I gave you a 6 on your last two challenges. (definitely uncle joe on the first, though. :)

Voting seems to have stalled. Not moved more than a vote or two since overnight. Anyone hit the 100 mark yet?

Yes, but it's been a rollercoaster. Lots of love/hate. I have two wonderful comments.

I have only had 2 votes all day. Those happened to be a 7 followed by a generous 2.

Guess this is a good place to post this question... Anyone have a good system for voting?? Last challenge I voted on the top three were my top three but the rest were all over the board... looking for a system to put in place...

It is rare that my top 3 votes go to the eventual ribbon winners. The aim of the game is to reward those photos that you admire, regardless of the eventual outcome. At the end of the day we all have different life experiences, views of art, consideration of the importance of technicals and so on ad infinitum, and it is this mix that combines to give a photo its average vote and ultimate placement. It is a rare photo, indeed, that has such broad appeal that its overall average is above 7.5.

Opens thread. Ctrl F. Types "3." and presses Enter. No matches found. Well, we need to fix that.

I'll PM you some info on how I vote, but keep in mind, that is only how I vote. You may have different criteria.

I uploaded at the last minute and realized that I exported the wrong photo. Two nearly identical shots and I grabbed the wrong one. Oh well. I'm expecting my street photography one to do even worse.

Like my "got mile" entry IF this holds I will have a new image on my profile page. Only my "got milk" didn't hold, at the last min there were some low votes. :-( So I hope this one holds.

*sigh* dropped .11 in the last 24 hours. Usually it doesn't drop that much after 150 votes.

It is going to be fun seeing the distribution on this one. Lots of 8s and lots of 4s. What a bizarre ride!

I wonder if street photography is going to be the same type of voting.

I'm still incredibly peeved about my entry. It's about where it should be.
I entered a bad outtake instead of something that actually used leading lines well. So so stupid. Looked at what I would have entered just there because I've been so angry with myself I couldn't look sooner... very annoyed. Nothing record breaking. But I'd say it'd've gone above my average score no problem.
I half hoped (by which I mean entirely hoped) that my entry would need to be validated... in which case I woudln't've submitted the original. So so annoyed.

It's my understanding that you can self-DQ if you haven't done so in your previous 25 entries. If you do, your entries goes away, *poof*, like it never was. It's just gone--no pink highlight on your profile page. (Of course, to restate a point worth restating, you can only do this once every 25 entries.)

That's correct. Alas, I am clean for only 11 entries so didn't bother trying. Thanks for the suggestion though. Might give it a try anyway :)

Done. I'm taking bets about whether or not it'll happen. My money's on not.
