I propose the following in response to the backlash that is being received from others in regards to the choices made for the "Halloween Costume Contest". See Comments #121 and #126. Followed by my response, #122 Although I feel that their responses are unjustified, it is obviously a real issue to them. My Proposal: Summary - To create a poll for each contest. How I think it "could" work (step - step): Place the Contest as per usual Provide a small time-frame to post related content (i.e. Photos) as per the contest. Create a Poll in relation to the Contest only after the time-frame has lapsed (2 above). Add ONLY the Contestants (Post #) that have posted within the given time-frame to the Poll. - This Poll will be Public for all Forum Members to vote for their favorite contestant. Pros:Less Insults and backlash.100% Fair results as it is a Public vote and therefore majority rules. Cons:I don't think it is possible to prevent contestants from voting for themselves.Is it possible to see who voted for who? If Yes then void those who voted for themselves. --- Alternatively: Close or Prevent further comments to the post. Pros:No more backlash. Cons:No friendly Congratulations, Compliments or Thank you's will be possible. --- NB: This is just an Idea, that may or may not work. If you have anything to add or have a better proposal, then please comment below. PS: I personally don't appreciate negativity on a friendly contest. I'm sure the Devs sit together and go through a process of elimination.
