I would like to suggest that members who wish to submit entries to future contests should register before posting any material  and be given an anonymous number for their identification, not to be revealed until after the voting is finished. User names are readily identifiable and may skew the voting either positively or negatively, depending on how the voters feel about the artist. Far better if the images and films are judged according to their artistic merit and the artists' skills with the software.

Thanks very much for hosting these contests - they liven things up considerably.

that is a good idea, and fairly easy to implement, for this year we wont do it, but future compos will just have most of the information hidden
thx

My only thought on this idea, apart from agreeing it is a great concept, is to be sure to find a way to anonymize comments too.  If somebody posts a comment saying "Nice Image!" and then the "anonymous" member replies with "Thanks!" - if their names show we have just identified that image's creator.

Maybe disable comments if making them anonymous is too difficult?

Not sure quite how to go about that on this forum  (pretty sure of what to do on vBulletin, but smf gets tricky on things like that).

sure, but blending stuff out is fairly easy wink but you are right, comments will be anonymized then as well

Instead of announcing them right after I create a new updated z^2 formula, do it before!  :p
