Deleting all non relevant posts from a COPY of this topic would be ok, but I wouldn’t want any post deleted from this topic.
However, it’s not really fair to ask the mods to “fix” this. Instead of making Stonemason find a solution, we could repost our images to a new topic. That is ... if we want to participate in being judged by the community. Not everyone might want to be judged by the community.
Give us a week or so to do so ... not like any other way will be quicker. After all ... isn’t everyone else who entered checking this topic daily?
Some contests used the DAZ ArtZone (which doesn’t exist anymore) to submit entries. Others have used an entry only topic and a separate discussion topic. I believe most contests on the DAZ forums tend to have fewer entries, and there aren’t usually a lot of non-entries posted.
Deleting all non relevent posts from the original thread seems a good way to go about it. As the contest was going I saved all entries to a folder every day so I already have my votes sorted out using Acdsee tagging them a 1 though 5 rating, so now I just have to pick my top ones from the 5 rating category. But I do believe only people who entered should be allowed to vote once for each position. ie… one vote for 1st one for 2nd, 3rd, 1 for for for community favorite…etc.. and not for their own piece. And I agree about the no comments comment when voting. Best of luck sorting this out Stonemason. Haven’t there been contests like this before on these forums? How were those handled?
