No, only the host of that particular challenge can see the votes, and DPR bods can also, if they ever took the time. Even when a host can see the voting pattern, he/she cannot tell the identity of the voters.

Thanks for the info.

I don't want to make unfounded accusations, but just for the sake of discussion, it would be possible for a challenge host to notice what he/she considered an unwarranted 5 star vote, and then pm friends to set the situation straight by giving 0.5 star votes to an entry, no?

Not saying that's what happened, just that there is that possibility.

Or I guess people might have felt threatened by the picture and sandbagged it. However, somehow I doubt that anyone would feel threatened by this picture.

Probably some people just didn't like the picture, and voted it down without realizing what a 0.5 star vote is supposed to mean.
