How do you vote?

Postby Shelleysart » Wed Aug 18, 2010 10:06 am

Just wondering how to vote in the free art showdown contests. I have seen some with stars but they were not in a contest. Is it by how many people favorite it? I have looked at the current artistic nude 2 and there are no stars to vote. So i went to animal planet 2 which is in phase one of voting and there are no stars to vote there either. Any ideas?

And can vistors vote that dont have an account?

Thanks

Hi Shelley,

You won't see any voting stars in any of the Showdown contest albums. Voting for the contests is done in a different location. The voting stars you see on other pictures is just for casual rating.

The Showdown voting takes place on this page: http://www.asingularcreation.com/showdown-vote.htm and only displays the finalists from the current contest. This is where public voting takes place, which is phase 2. Phase 1 of voting is juried and is not open to the public.

In order to see the status of all of the contests, you must look at the showdown main page here: http://www.asingularcreation.com/showdown.htm

all the best,
Joe

i think i got it now. But when you say "public" does a voter need an account or can anyone go and vote?

I sent the following link to a few of my friends and they are all having issues trying to vote: http://www.asingularcreation.com/Galler ... pos=-80017
I directed them to click the Vote Here link in the message stating I was a finalist but no one seems to be able to cast a vote. What are they doing wrong?

Hi Russ,

That is not the finalist voting page. The voting page is: http://www.asingularcreation.com/art-contests-vote.php

There is currently no public voting. The voting is juried. I am considering bringing back the popular vote and will keep everyone updated.

I went to the link Joe posted for voting, but it shows six copies all of the exact same photo for finalists. They are all of the same exact tree.

I am confused. This is the page from the website that says there is public voting and there are phases.

As I said, public voting stage was discontinued. We may bring it back. But currently, voting is strictly juried.

Okay, thank you. Actually, I prefer to have your jurors decide. When there is a public vote it ends up just being a popularity contest. Thanks again!
