Idk how I feel about likes being the way to vote.
Wouldn’t that just mean certain submissions get buried? And some submissions might just win by virtue of being posted earlier so it can gain traction from the start while a submission posted, what, a week late, doesn’t have a chance
A valid critique, though to change the method now would mean a voting period where very few participate due to its brevity or rescheduling the existing time periods of the contest.
I think that going forward, I will simply link all of the submissions within the central topic so that people interested or invested in the contest have the opportunity to see every submission in one place, mitigating submissions being buried. If this is still not satisfactory to enough people by the time contest 3 is underway, I will ask the public if they would rather it be done differently going forward or in the future.
Presently, however, out of the ~60ish people actively observing the contests, I have only observed 3 people expressing distaste towards the like-based voting system, so I haven’t felt the need to change it yet.
I would agree if the contest were something significantly consequential like the canon contests–however, all present voters appear to be actual users, and participation is so comparatively low that I feel it would be incredibly obvious if cheating in such a manner occured.
Contest’s been real fun to observe so far, love all the entries rolling in. Glad this contest encouraged folks to make so many of the classic rahi as gwps! Everyone so far has done a great job. (And thanks for hosting such a fun contest, Starbreaker!)
