... and yet, when you regard the images through their bare quality, ranging from their concept thru execution to presentation, the first association related to the vote distribution would be that there was some pumping up of votes without any balanced photographic criteria.

So it becomes less important to discern whether that was done by seeking support from friends and/or family, or it was done from alternate accounts by the author - trying to reverse-engineer the qualitative assessment of the voter(s) casting highest vote values on these entries tips the balance toward tactical voting, rather than any other quality-related merits.

This is what it usually boils down to, and too many examples show the semblance to this voting distribution curves leading to subsequent uncomfortable discoveries.


There will be no sure-fire solutions until the proposed organizational and other challenge changes are implemented. It is hard enough to realise that so many entrants' and voters' basic honesty needs to be enforced, let alone trying to fight such trend with no effective means of supression.
