Yeah that's exactly what i'm noticing on the effect of votes to the ranking of pics,

a few low votes can effectively pull down a good contender from the race. One or a group can simply low vote any decent looking competition out of the challenge.

And that is the dilemma we face with the 'Sandbaggers' who take great delight in voting #.5s for most of the entries, and #5 for their own, usually through multiple accounts, or friends, or family. Some of the hosts keep a close check on unusual voting patterns and entrants whom they know have more than one account, but there are other hosts who just don't care enough, and offer  excuses for the multiple accounts, use of the same cameras, same photos in multiple galleries etc. Ruth
