Thoughts on voting
Jul 29, 2011

When I first started looking at the Challenges and getting familiar with this site, I did not realize that 0.5 was a negative vote. I thought it meant the picture was just barely worth noting, with lots of problems. Because if half a point is negative, then what is a 0 vote? A half-point vote could boost one entry over another if the other got no vote.

So early on, I may inadvertently have awarded some 0.5s mistakenly. I think it is confusing. I mean, if you give $10 to Charity 1, 1 penny to Charity 2, and nothing to Charity 3, you still helped 2 more than 3.

Sandbagging/using multiple accounts -- I'm not smart enough to know how to stop that. It seems kind of silly to spend time and effort rigging the outcome of a competition with no tangible prize except bragging rights!
