For now. And no one is more surprised than I about being "the guy in the lead."

doesn't matter if he's in the lead or not, the 2 people trying to figure out the system are the 2 leading

I'm curious myself. After you explained it, I almost like the system less, and i was looking forward to how it turned out before it was explained

Oh well, I guess time will tell how it goes.

yeah i know, its experimental. I just think it gives the voters a little more guided choices as to photos that fit the theme properly to vote instead of just who had the naked chick in their photo.... coincidentally it was that one that i personally thought fit the theme the best this time

I think a naked woman fits every theme....

But agreed otherwise.

Was just thinking, if its only 3 images ever, maybe the 3 peoples who's images are selected shouldn't be voting as that can scew the results more easily...

Just a thought.

no, the three participants.

since they can't vote on their own pictures, it changes the odds.

That's an easy one - I like how it's been forever. New one is convoluted and contrived imo. It excludes entries and will put people off. All my opinion of course.

Poll is closed and we have a tie (again). I have to say, though, that rodi's image is better artistically and stylistically. It fits the theme of "in between" better, too. Like being in between sleep and waking. I can just picture that scene (in my fantasies) of waking up and seeing her getting out of bed. Gotta give this one to rodi.

convoluted - maybe, contrived I really don't see how you can say that but you're entitled to your opinion.

I thought it gave a better selection pool of images and elminated those rouge votes we end up seeing EVERY time we run a contest of 2 or 3 guys who come in from nowhere and vote on 1 image that its blatantly obvious isn't among the top 50% of the entries.

Again, I'm not married to this method or trying to push it on you guys, I (along with Chewy's advice to try it out) just thought it'd be worth a shot to see how it went. If the majority didn't like it that fine, if we want to give it another shot with a more general theme, maybe it'll be better - who knows .

I don't mind people voicing dislikes of it because it was experimental, I just want some kind of a clear and detailed explanation as to why they don't like it and what exactly about it doesn't work for them so its not just - meh I don't like it but I can't really give any valid reasons as to why it doesn't work.

Many website contests base themselves on these kinds of formats where you submit a photo to a contest and are either accepted or not and then the members vote on the accepted photos for a winner. The benefit is you get a good quality pool of finalists, the down side is some photos get left out.

You guys know like 2 months ago, I was one who liked the way the old votes were, multiple and public. I felt like the law of averages usually gets the best photo picked (or at least one of the best). I guess it's probably just safe to say no matter what voting method we use someone is going to not like it and there will always be a debate that the best photos are winning. It's a subjective content so it's probably just the nature of the beast.

Either way, thanks for hanging in there for this one and should we run a lightning round or is Mark conceding to Rodi?
