    PhotM #2: Voting Thread!

    Photography of the Month #1 - Voting!


    Ok, so the submissions were awesome an on a much higher level than I ever anticipated. Amazing work everyone but as you know, only 3 photos can make it to voting and the ones chosen were for me the ones that better fit the spirit of this months opening contest! For all those who didn't have their pictures chosen, better luck next time and don't get down! the submissions were of high quality so it wasn't easy to make the picks! Now, the poll will be open until the 29th of July, meaning 16 days to vote for your favorite photo!

    Entry #1 - Thor



    Entry #2 - Escorpiius



    Entry #3 - Chiharu



    Entry #4 - Janin



    Entry #5 - migui87294



    Entry #6 - Nocturne



    Now, vote for your favorite photography! Remember to vote on the photograph, not on who submitted it. It may be hard but the goal is to pick the best one and I trust you to make the correct decisions!

    Re: Photm #2: Voting Thread!!

    It was extremely hard to pick only 5 so I decided to pick 6 for this week. Amazing submissions all around and amazing pictures all together.

    So, which one is your favorite?

    Re: Photm #2: Voting Thread!!

    Um.. I'm not being mean or something but Nocturne's subs doesn't really looks so hard to judge or even so hard of work. I mean it's a guitar with a note that says NB. It's cool but look at -Severus Snape-


    This actually .. Um, yeah.. What I call effort. :3

    No no, I'm not taking her side.. I barely know her. Just stating my option. Honestly. ( .__.)

    Don't kill, please.

    OT: I like both Escorpiius' and Chiharu's entries!

    Thor that's a sweet entry
    I also like Janin's and sleepy Naruto so kawaiiii

    I agree with Yasmine, there was another entry around the same theme and it was, how can I put this nicely, waaaaaay better? Anyway, that's up to Scorps, he might have seen something I am missing and choose this one between the two.

    Re: Photm #2: Voting Thread!!

    Guys, these were my picks based on ym opinion and that is how thw contest works. Now vote between thse which ones you like and thats that.

    It never ceases to amaze me how people who don't participate in it still manage to deem their opinion valid... As for the others, you guys know that picking a picture is always subjective. It was hard to pick this time but visually, conceptually, in terms of effort, etc etc I felt these were the most apealing. Simple!

    PS- Yasmine or should I say Shina.., tone it down. ok?

    Re: Photm #2: Voting Thread!!

    Basically that's how the contests on NB are. The judge judges and that's it. No need to argue over the matter as it has no meaning or result at all at the end of the day.

    OT: This time the competition will be closer I think. More interesting than the previous one, which is good for the future of the contest.

    Aww man. Can't I do anything right? ( .__.)
    Okay, okay. I understand that the judges choose and I'm sorry for butting in. I just happen to see that there were subs with a guitar as theme of the PoTM. Sorry!!

    @Nocturne; sorry, sweetheart. I really really liked your entry as well with Thor's. but I would be pleases to see hers as well. I mean, to me it would be easier judge, you see. ^_^

    Sorry once again, guys. I'm an weird woman. :3

    Goodluck to the subs~!

    Great entries, but my vote goes to Escorpiius.

    We've all been addicted to NB at one point, or maybe still are. Nice setup as well.

    *sigh* Well, first of all, as Scorps said - it's a matter of subjectivity. We all got different choices, different views on art and take different things into consideration. But at the end of the day, the judge has conferred the power to judge, and one has got to respect that.

    As a judge, I might have chose different entries, you might have chose different ones and Scorps chose what he felt, was most appealing.

    On the comparison (which shouldn't have been done in any case), here's one example (if I was to judge) of how views can differ: Like one may look more appealing to the other, but the one that was chosen submitted 2 photographs. The setup of -Severus Snape- may look better, but submitting 2 photos (instead of 1) is a proof of extra-dedication and extra-hardwork towards the competition from Nocturne's side. This give him, some kind of plus points. And there are similar factors: it's not easy to judge - as Scorps said, everyone got their own choices.

    Last thing, why do many of you, rant about negativity and why 'one particular entry' wasn't chosen? Can't you praise the positivity that Scorps bend the rules, and generously allowed 6 Entries instead of normal 3. Maybe, both Nocturne and -Severus Snape-, along with some others, wouldn't have been into the Voting right now. Appreciate the positive sides - it's already extremely fair and kind to allow more-than-allowed number of submissions. For that, alone, Scorps deserves more respect and praises - and it's really low to question his judging post-that.

    Your opinion is important. That's why there's a voting thread. But your opinion shall be about the chosen submissions and the best one, out of it, according to you.

    You are not required to voice your opinion about the Submission thread; which is under judges' decision - not public one. What happens in the Submission thread, is not really public's matter - it's the host's territory. Also, when opining that "this/that one was better than the other..", you are not giving your opinion on the better submissions. You are giving your opinion, on how judging should be done - and that's extremely disrespectful.

    Scorps is right - we, Mods, take time to host contests with all it takes, despite our RL time. And then, someone who didn't participate, will indirectly apply that the judging was "unfair" one. That's really irritating.

    You got the Voting Thread to give opinions on the Best Entry, not opinion on the host's way of judging.

    Thanks to both of you.

    Though, when I thought the concept of 'How NB is an Addiction and a Cure altogether' - I envisioned a better outcome. Imo, my Scrabble one is closer to what I initially conceptualized. This one turns nice, but I hoped for a better outcome. Another example of how views differ...

    I agree with this. The voters are the ones that decide the outcome. So their opinion couldn't be more valid.

    Re: Photm #2: Voting Thread!!

    Escorpiius put it perfectly: you are here to judge, from within the pictures picked which ones are the best in your opinion. Thats the members role in the contest. Not to judge or pass judgement on how the holder of the contest decided on which pictures were to be picked.

    Its really annoying to see people who go out of their way to simply "complain" for the sake of complaining.

    I bent the rules and picked 6 pictures so more pioctures had the lime light and were up for voting and instead of praising that, you only complain. Not pretty. Actually, its quite sad. And pathetic.

    And then people wonder why more contests aren't held and more events aren't made...why would we do more if when we do, this is the reasult?

    An opinion is an opinion, wrong or right, everyone has his own. The point of an opinion is not to be valid, it's to be heard and express someone's thinking. It's a public poll, it's not bad to express an opinion in case it's done in a nice way.

    One would have thought that since 3 images is optional to reach the final voting poll, quality over quantity would be appreciated more.

Can't you praise the positivity that Scorps bend the rules, and generously allowed 6 Entries instead of normal 3.

    It's a new contest. Scorps himself said that he might change the rules adding more photos in case the submissions were good and over 10. It's not bending, it's rethinking what could work better for the competition.
    Why do mods always take a honest opinion that doesn't bash/insult or say something bad so negative. Why do you always respond as if members are trying to insult you personally, or make you look bad deliberately? Can't you think for a moment that when someone says something about a competition, even if it's an opinion that disagrees with a mod, it's stated to help this competition? I mean hasn't it crossed your minds that since we take time to enter this competition and put effort to that, we do enjoy it and our criticism and opinions are made only to improve it?
    I understand that we can't always agree on something but why are you talking about negativity when such thing doesn't exist.
    Judging is part of a competition, you can't expect that people will comment on everything apart from that. If you are creating a competition that is based on a single judgement you bare the responsibility to hear and take criticism, when it's done positively. Those comments are not made to insult the judge, they are made to point out something that the judge might have missed or something that a member doesn't understand. In both cases, the outcome can only be positive.

    While I understand what you said Chiharu, you fial to see the point. I don't mind people giving me their opinion...but when you say "sorry but its obvious this submission was better than the one you picked" thats not an opinion, thats not constructive criticism that will help the contest go on and get better. Thats destructive criticism.

    I don't mind people saying "Well,m I actually liked the submissions of X member better but from these I like that Y submission the best". Thats an opinion conveyed in a harmless, innocent way. That is not an issue. Thats welcomed. However, It makes us feel that the community isn't grateful when they lack the decorrum to put their opinions out in a "nice"way. And when they do, off course we get defensive. Its our Work. I doubt you stand idle if people convey such opinions in such a way about your work. I understand everyone will disagree on one contest or another eventually. We don't always have the same opinion. Though what I don't like is the lack of...I dunno...I just find the way people say things too "disrespectfull" (not the word I want but close). The problem is not an opinion, its how its given.
