Votes

What's on your mind today?
Wed Apr 29, 2020 9:29 pm
The voting is one issue but the other issue (and the reason I think the back and forth low voting goes on) is the commenting. There's nothing worse than doing your best work, making your submission and then having somebody tear your work apart right on your entry for everyone to read and while the contest is still going on. It's just too easy to sway other peoples voting score with negative comments. The fact that you can see comments on every entry before you vote doesn't help either. I'm not looking to hear peoples opinions on my submissions I just want to enter and see if I win. All the snarky comments and wise ass remarks about peoples work right on their submissions as the contest is unfolding is in my opinion what's causing all the problems.Perhaps you should not be able to comment until the contest is over or at the very least your comments should only be able to be seen by the contestant and not everyone else. I'd much rather read peoples comments or justifications for scores AFTER the contest is over or in private while the contest is going. Just my 2 cents.

Agreed! (in private works for me)

@untexp How can we (as Capt. Picard would say) "make it so"

P.S. not only is it frustrating to have your work torn apart like that, it also makes artist reluctant to post their best effort or submit at all.

We're probably all just dreaming because I have the feeling nothing will ever change here as far as how this page runs. As suggested in other discussions it's doubtful a reprograming of the page to create new voting or commenting perimeters will ever happen.

This won't stop anything. We can't see who did the chop until we have voted anyway. Comments will still be seen. Maybe limit commenting in voting only, then the only way to see it is to vote. Or just keep comments private to the author. I know sometimes a comment can be useful when you first enter the contest, and someone spots a blooper. That can be edited before the final. It just seems that comments private only to the author is the solution, and the comment(s) should be reportable as knowing that the comment is private, they might say something that shouldn't be said.
