★ STF Challenge 179: VOTING ★

Ladies and Gentlemen!

First to say that I am very proud of you all! We have seen a great participation in the challenge 179 and I am very pleased with the results. There is quite a number folks contributing for their first times and despite of a few pbase hick ups it works!

Also I would highlight that there were quite a number of comments to the images, which I really appreciate. My apology that I was not able to comment on every single image. I had to work a lot the last week, aside to my duties as a host.

IMHO b/w has been showing a lot of it's strenght and maybe for one or the other it was a revival or an initiation to think in this direction a bit more.

It will be very hard to vote I think, but still it is one important last step to provide feedback to the photographers. Please take your time and go and vote here:

Thanks Warren for providing the voting system! Please check out the voting guidelines below!

Right now there is a minor issue on voting side (caused by myself). At the moment there is still the link to the last challenge 178 visible. Please ignore this and just vote on the Challenege 179.

Thanks again everybody, for contributions, comments, bumps and the Song Contest (hi John).

Cheers,
Frank

Voting ends on Thursday, 23. October, 10pm CET

=======================

The voting system is provided to us by Warren Sarle and can be accessed at the link below:
http://www.warrensarle.com/vote

First, you should select the Sony Eligible and/or the Sony Exhibition gallery for voting. It will open a window with all the thumbnails listed from the selected gallery... the loading will take just a moment until fully finished. You can click on the "show help" button for explanations, but here is a short synopsis about usage...

I suggest checking the 4 check boxes at the top of the page for displaying the image titles, etc. Clicking on a thumbnail will open a new window of the photo's "full-scale" viewing in PBase. Below each picture is an evaluation line. It includes points from 4 to 1, "H" for honorable mention, "X" to move the thumbnail to the end of the page, and "0" if you want to clear a vote on an image. You can award points by clicking once on the appropriate number below the thumbnail.

PLEASE remember to do two things: 1) enter your dpreview ID name as your "name" when voting and 2) always hit the "Save your votes" button when you are finished awarding your votes. A new window will then appear and display your selections.

NOTE (INCREASED SECURITY): IN ORDER TO ASSURE THAT NOBODY ELSE COULD CHANGE YOUR VOTES, YOU CAN APPEND, IF YOU WANT, AN UNDERSCORE (" ") ONTO YOUR "ID" FOLLOWED BY A THREE FIGURE CODE TO ACT LIKE A PASSWORD. EXAMPLE: ela_475

PLEASE post a short message back to this voting thread after you're done to indicate that you've voted. This helps validate your votes... plus, you can be notified if something is in error (e.g. you forgot to save your votes, etc.). On the rare occasion a 'bad apple' tries to cheat the system, the votes are simply disqualified.
Rules for awarding points are the same as always:

• First, you must cast 4 points for your favorite single photo in each of the galleries you vote for. If your time is very short, PLEASE try to choose at least one favorite entry from each of the two galleries.

• After awarding your 4-point favorite, you can then award up to 12 more points in each gallery that you're voting for. That means you have 16 points total to work with for each gallery (32 points total for both galleries). You're not required to cast any or all of these additional 12 points, or to cast them the same way in each gallery. You can award the remaining votes however you like, keeping in mind the following guideline...
• Award between 1 and 4 points to each of your additional selections.

To show appreciation for each other's work, please don't vote for any of your own photos. Header photos should not receive any votes either. Please vote honestly and in the good spirit of these challenges by reviewing the merits of ALL of the photos.

After finishing the voting process in one gallery, you can go back to http://www.warrensarle.com/vote/ and select the other gallery for voting.

Please vote, whether you entered photos or not. Thanks again to all who participated, and good luck to everyone!
