Just a possible suggestion on voting

Hey there :) I'm not sure how scoring the voting goes, especially not with such a huge number of entries, but another comm I'm in does the voting in a poll too -- except that they have a ticky-box for each icon. Looks like it's a bit easier to come up with placings that way, because of course it counts each vote the icon gets, and that way LJ does all of the math for you. I have no idea if you'd even want to change it, but it kinda looks like it might be easier in the long run.

They state in the voting post that your entry *must* check no more or no less than the number of placings (in their case, three), and that those that don't have the right number of votes won't be counted. Not quite sure how they'd take them out of the totals, but I'm guessing there's a way to see who voted for what.

Anyway -- I don't see anything wrong with the current method, just that totalling up the winners looks like such a long process! :D

Re: Just a possible suggestion on voting

The votes are weighted here. The ticky box method is fatal if you forget an icon.

I use a spreadsheet to tally the votes for me - also makes it easier to check for self voting (which I just discount and is happily an extremely rare occurance).

Re: Just a possible suggestion on voting

Ah - yes. That makes complete sense! (This other comm also has WAY fewer icons per challenge) And I know so little about how to actually use a spreadsheet, but it sounds like it's not as hard to total things up as I thought it might be. Cool! :D
