Post in this thread to sign up for the March Photoshop Competition.

I think most of you know how it works by now. If all the spots are filled and someone that hasn't had a chance to play yet wants in, someone that has had a chance will be bumped.

It would be helpful if you would put something to the effect of Sign Up for the March Photoshop Competition with a link to this thread in your sig.:wink:

I have a question.....would it be possible to make a rule that people aren't allowed to tell others which one they did until the contest is over?

That week or the whole contest? Because they aren't supposed to tell until the week is over.

That's what I thought but, I know for a fact that there are people that don't follow that rule...

I mean, each week, once the voting is over , then everybody can say which one they did

dolphinfan2k5

Yeah, that is supposed to be a rule. Unfortunately, it gets broken a lot. I doubt many people read through the thread though to find out who did which one before they vote so I don't think it has much of an effect.

They don't have to read the threads....some competitors send out their work to other people via PMs. To people who aren't even in the contest....

I send mine to people who are in the competition that im not up against...we share each others work


In no way does it influence my vote either

Budd, I know what you're saying but, all it takes is one voter to vote for a friend to change the whole outcome....Last week, If i had voted, there would have been only one point seperating 4 and 5.

I think when you have a chance to look over other people's work before the contest, you familiarize yourself with that particular entry and it feels more comfortable to vote for that entry because the other entry is unfamiliar to you.

Not only that but, I'm sure that tips could be exchanged, which essentially makes it a collaboration and not exclusively your own work.

If you guys are cool with the way it is, that's fine. I'm cool with not entering the contest. I was just hoping that it could be more fair.

It has been a rule, and I will say that I have broken it. I think Infins has a point here though. It is easier to vote for something that you've seen beforehand. It's something that is sort of based on the honor system though. There's no way dm or I could know if contestants shared there work.

Ive done this once, I was the one with the sean taylor sig in february comp in round 1. I got beat by the best!

maybe we could add a rule where none of the contestants can vote? I'm not sure if this will entirely help but I believe most of the shared images are between contestants... who votes is easy to monitor if you let people see who voted for what :wink:

Aren't most of the votes from the contestants? Personally I don't think it affects the outcome much at all. I know people hate losing, but it is just for fun.

Well no. I believe the last few votes have gone close to and over 60 votes with (at most) 16 contestants so I think it should be ok :wink:

DM, I would like to let the contestants vote because they are a big part of the vote on some occasions. I think if we just told them not to show their work to anyone and went on the honor system it would be fine.

In my VERY humble opinion the only person to see the various entries before they are posted in the voting thread are the person running the contest and the person who made it...

...and, in my opinion, the only people that should be able to POST in the voting thread are the voters. Whoever is IN the contest should not be able to make any comments in the voting thread until AFTER the voting has closed.

Just my opinion...
