GB Voting
« on: April 26, 2012, 09:11:47 PM »
Since the prize actually goes to a person, can we either vote on a per-user or per-team basis?  I just don't want to see people that submit 2-3 entries for a GB essentially penalized by having the votes spread out among their entries.   The voting can be considered to be a vote for that person's effort in the GB, moreso than the merit of their individual works.

What do people think of this?

Cheers,

Logan

Makes sense to me - people who do submit multiple entries do tend to have their votes spread.  I am happy to hear other's comments though.

I like Logan's idea, because if we take BdB as an example, trying to choose one of his creations he enters into a GB, it's very hard.

But there's another example of a character on another forum who loves to swamp a GB with a bunch of projects, and while his ideas are generally very interesting, the execution of said projects are a lot to be desired.  But on occasion he does do a real cracker, so Logan's idea doesn't really work here.  I thought the idea of voting for a particular subject is because it really creates a stir as to how it appears to the person looking at it, the others might not. 

Just my 10 cents worth ----

Sir Prize, per-haps! ;)

I tend to vote for quality over quantity - but that is often a balance of quality of product (build/profile/story) and quality of concept.

Very good...  ;D

I also entirely agree with your voting logic.

There are prizes?

Sometimes - it is really up to the GB Mod.  I usually offer prises though...sometimes, they are even nice. ;)
