Just in case you didn't know, a similar promise (with similar earnest wording) to revamp the challenge system came near the beginning of 2012... :yawn:

To be fair, the problem with the Challenges isn't the voting system or the basic structure - it's the lousy way a significant minority of the people involved in all aspects of the process act. How exactly is dpreview supposed to fix that with a bit of re-coding and a few rule changes?


If your reply is to my comment, Joe, then I'd say the same problems that exist now existed when the promise was made last year. In other words, when the promise was made last year, Simon knew the extent of the problems, what would be needed to curb the cheating and make the results more reliable, and therefore should have had a good idea--just as he does now--of the necessary resources and time it would likely require.

If you weren't replying to me, then... nevermind.
