The system does work.
Jan 14, 2013

I have a pretty good background in statistics and have looked at the scoring results carefully to see if I can come up with suggestions for improving the system.  There are so many instances of scoring bias that are obvious attempts to scam the system but I think in some cases it is misunderstanding of how scoring should be done.  In any case it does seem that for the most part the better photos rise to the top.

The best way to get the most valid results is to vote on every photo in the challenge.  That way the scammers will be lost in the noise.

I always wonder what the cheaters do if they should win.  Do they put the results on their wall or show it to the local photo club?
