After possibly a painstakingly thorough analysis of all voting data since the competition was first ran, I came across the alarming fact that the good images are consistently winners, that there is a definite bias in the voting system towards the good stuff...

Wait...

Good images are usually the winners?

Bias?  HERE??

Can't be.

I wish I noticed that trend before...

I'd have submitted good stuff all along   afro

And Caleidoscope - I believe I sense a tiny bit of Sarcasm in mclarekin's post   wink


EDIT - we posted at the same time!

im not interested in giving people bad ratings, so i just pick a handful of favorites and give them five stars and call it a day.  i imagine im not the only one who does it like that

So it was only partly sarcasm?  Or is my own Sarcalepsy  (uncontrollable Sarcasm!)  (my favorite imaginary disease!!)  (I made it up myself!)  tainting my judgment?

 @ Sockratease     Sarcalepsy LOL

Yes I was having fun, BUT with an element of truth.  My last years voting system :-

void VotingSystem(in.image, out.vote)
   if( not classed as "clearly above average" image)   vote =  ***;    // minimum 3 starts for entering
   if(clearly equals 5 stars) vote = *****;
   else vote = ****;

I had to speed up my voting, because over at Mandelbulber Mega_Multinational Inc I only get a 20 minute "lunch" break half way through my 16 hour coding shifts (8 days a week),

SO,  a faster voting system may allow/encourage more people to vote, and the 3 stars reward for entering reflects the  fun community nature of the competition.  Oops my 20 minutes is up, and the boss man  will be back with his cattle prodder

I noticed that the Youtube embed on the forums only allowed to you watch it up to 720p so I tried to edit in a comment and now it got moved out of the film category. It's just sitting at the bottom of all the other categories and I can't figure out how to move it back.

No problem, Ive moved it back to the right section.
Its kind of a strange situation. Normal members can't move their picture. I guess one of the moderators might have made a mistake. Or maybe theres a system preventing edits in the voting period. huh? that would be strange though.

Is there someone who could translate the contest information to Spanish and would be willing to do that?

Hi, I could do it, but maybe it's too late already.

Thanks for the offer. But yes, a bit late.

It doesn't matter. wink we haven't had any problems involving other languages after that post.

Thanks again. smiley

I see you are allowing really large images. Just want you to know I can't see them, and scrolling doesn't help. Hard to vote on something you can't see. Don't suppose there's any way you could open these somehow so they could be viewed?

a lot of the ones in the mandelbrot category get screwed up by the huge lines of text for the location information in the description, it took me a bit to realize i had to scroll sideways a bunch just to see some of the images, and the browser kinda slows down and chokes on the whole deal..

though ive also had it where the server seems to just not want to send the image..

the problem with the huge text lines should have been fixed a month ago, some images are huge, yes, scaling using the browser scale methods helps ctrl +/-

Hmm.. I thought I had gone through the images to add code-tags where needed to make the changes to the code-tag usefull and every page readable.

What browser do you use?

Christian, could you enable the normal site banner now that we have voted? Looking at these is nice but a bit more variation would be nice. smiley
