    Why do people join competitions? To get a feedback of how they are doing that's what joining a competition is all about. And to get real results of a competition or of any kind of freaking voting system you need votes proportional to the amount of entries. That's from a freaking statistic point of view too that's how any kind of voting or competition is done.

    No you join competition to see how you rank among the other you just strive to be the best. But not everyone and their mother are like that from the get go. So you need some way to see how you are compared to others so you can go up more.

    Oh, I'm usually very picky and give not many votes anyways, but after voting seeing that a newbie should get at least one vote for his entry then I'm that nice and give one.
    I'm also one of the people who are voting near the end of the competition, so there's that.

    You must know what your competition is trying to achieve. Yours is achieving showing how elitist you are and nothing else.

    I'm too lazy to give tips, only do it every once in a blue moon or when people ask for it :happyurr

    Well, i should say that the only competitions I participated in were coloring contests. No matter how bad a coloring is I guess everyone is happy to get at least one vote for their picture. I will also feel free enough to say that coloring something takes a lot longer than doing a small avy and acknowledging someone's work with a vote is at least a good start (I mean you put in like 6h+ of work to make it look good). Feedback is also very welcome.

    That's why I feel like encouraging a gfx-beginner (and coloring newbie) is good.

    Imagine if the NFL didn't have brackets and only picked the 2 best teams for the Superbowl as soon as the previous "contest" ended, instead of everyone having equal chance to get to the finals.
    Imagine if the World Cup was just the champions from last year, because why bother with low class teams.
    Imagine if the F1 Grand Prix consisted of 2 cars.
    Imagine if there were no semi-finals, quarter-finals, etc... at the Davis Cup

    Imagine watching a race on TV and the cameras shut off as soon as 3rd person crosses the finish line. **** that 85 year old bitch in 167th place who wants to see her struggle and fight until the end to cross the finish line.

    That's what your arrogance comes off as.

    This is not a coloring contest and we share a same opinion about coloring how it seems.

    This is AOTW and let's talk only about AOTW.

    In the end...there's only one winner.

    You don't see people crying over teams which were not good enough.

    ...isn't this a thread for voting system (not stated for AOTW)? o_O

    Guys calm down with the language please.

    I agree with @Aerysaurus what about trying her idea first and see how it goes? If it goes well, you might consider allowing 2 votes (and maybe 3 or more if there are more participants once the community is growing bigger).

    I think the amount of votes a member can give should depend on the amount of entries in the voting thread.

    If the entries are four or less than a member should only have one vote because if multiple choice is allowed, the chances of a tie will increase or the entries will get near about the same votes.

    If the entries are seven to nine, then a member should have three votes to give to three separate entries. This is because if the amount of entries are high then there might be two or three very good avatars which deserve votes. A member would then be able to vote for those entries which he likes. Otherwise it might lead to a sense of regret that a member was not able to vote for two more very good entries.

    If it is to be implemented, we should have a discussion and decide on how many votes a member gets based on the amount of entries.

    For example:-
    1-4 entries - 1 vote per member
    5-8 entries - 2 votes per member
    9 and above entries - 3 votes per member
