Hello,

it’s time to vote, to judge and be judged. Everyone can vote, not only those who participated, but only one vote-casting per person and no self voting.

The voting is as usual bit for those who hasn’t done RRRR voting before, this is how it is done.

We have two categories, Best and Funniest.
You cast five votes in each category with the point 5-4-3-2-1, higher is better.
Voting is done through SurveyMonkey at this link: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/67Z7CHM

But you are encouraged to write down your votes in this thread as well (Survey Monkey is to make to counting easier).

Browse the entries in the RRRR thread here: http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewthread/9325/
The tags on each entry correspond to a tag in the voting page. (Thanks to bohemian3 for setting up the SurveyMonkey!)

Now, prices and winning!
You can only win one price in each category. If your images take multiple placements, the best is counted, the rest are removed leaving the slot for those behind.

The prices are (in each category).
First prize: $60 + BWC Morphing Country Road
Second place: $40 + BWC Guillotine
Third place: $15 + BWC 80s Punk
Fourth place: $5

And thanks again to all sponsors.

Extended voting time due to the little problems with inconsistency.

The voting is open from now to Tuesday December 4 at 23:59:59 DAZ Time (which is early monday morning here)

Let the voting begin!

Edit: Remembered that those overseas might be busy this weekend meeting families so I extended the voting time past the festivities.

IMPORTANT ON VOTING!

I just got it clarified from bohemian3, who set up the voting system. 1 is 5 points, 5 is one point, which make me think of the holy hand-grenade scene in Life of Brian.

Too bad. That was on my short list also.

With so many well done entries, I find it really hard to decide. Well, at least that’s one I can scratch through…

Yeah, this is going to take awhile to go through so many entries before I can sort out my votes.

On mine, too! Well, at least I have now one place open again ... so many fantastic entries. I really don’t know where to start.

Okay, I voted.  While I’m not going to lie and say I wish I could vote for them all, I do wish I had a couple more votes.  It would have been nice to award ties too, especially for the 1st and 2nd place choice.

I found it hard though to remember to tick box 5 for 1st place. It felt so….wrong. lol

—————-
BTW, my favorite render out of all of them was Sedor#1.  Really like the gritty, post-apocolyptic feel of the image and the expressions on the women’s faces.  Quite a pleasant surprise given the items pulled.

(Not going to reveal the rest of my votes atm)

Any tips on the best way to review all of the entries quickly/easily? I stated writing down the entries I liked as I browsed but then got too many items and comparing was going to be a pain. Thinking of opening up contenders in new tabs and then dropping off my least favourite as Igo but that still leaves the question of how to keep track of the entry number for each image. Any suggestions?

Uh Oh! I see an inconsistency in the voting instructions. The instructions on this thread say that we are awarding points 5-4-3-2-1, higher is better. But the survey says “Select the images you think are the BEST, with 1 being the highest, overall best.” Please clarify ASAP. I believe we have always said 5 is the best, not 1.

Yes, that is confusing. Does voting a “1” mean you are giving it five points? Help, Totte! rolleyes

Well… I haven’t looked what at the Survey page is mentioned as I have had the 5-4-3-2-1 (higher = better) rule from this thread in mind and used that.

The voting page said 1=best (or something like that) so I used that…

Same here. I went by the survey page without noticing the inconsistency.

EDIT: looks like this has been clarified in the original post.

Well, my votes are backwards then, because I was following the instructions in this thread, not realizing that 1=5 and 5=1, etc. How can I change my vote now that the rules are clarified?
