Soft sandbagging...
Apr 28, 2012

Or why I don't like people voting in challenges they enter.

My Post Processed Pet challenge just went to voting.

I've had one person vote on all but one entry. After looking at the results I'm fairly certain who it is. I think the sandbaggers are getting more sophisticated as time goes on. The give a few higher scores for some of the less then stellar entries and then go with low but not .5 votes to anything that looks like competition.

Now I could be all wrong about this and I'm not known for giving out a bunch of high scores myself. I also know all the entries are not stellar but take a look at the sample below and how this person voted and let me know your thoughts. Would you consider this a form of soft sandbagging? I did make note of the voter ID as well as the ID of the one entry they did not vote on.

It's easier to ask for forgiveness then to ask for permission.
