Lol, I use premades all the time and I have seen a lot of other people do that.

I guess we've been breaking the rules all these years, sorry about that CSM.

Thats OK?...

I just checked out polldaddy and I am VERY HAPPY with it. You can change themes, add text and images for one entry, set results for private, choose how many options the user can choose, etc.

I will definitely use this in the voting process. Also I changed to Possum's method of submitting entries by PM.

BTW Possum, polldaddy is extremely easy to use. You can choose when the voting is over etc etc etc..

I liked it when it was pure and simple , people posted their entries ; then the polls go up and people voted . But then that's just me I'm not into complicated things ..

What's wrong with PM entries and a simple link on polldaddy for a poll?

Click a link and vote instead of click a link and vote..

Same goes for entering.

Instead of clicking the topic link, posting in the image URL and clicking Post, you click on the Envelope icon, post in your image URL, and click Send.

I think y'all are seriously overthinking this.

I'm with you on this. Waaaaaay too complicated.

Well this is how I like it. PM entries and a poll. Complicated much?

Well frankly I think voting should be kept as simple as possible . It would make things easier for the voters and the host that way and would make it easier to enter in the first place.Making things too complicated puts people off.

Originally I was against having to PM my entry but I have warmed to the idea since. I think PM`ing the image is a good idea and helps to ensure that the best picture does win. However if there are some people who are determined to get together and vote for each others work what`s stopping them PM`ing each other to say which one is theirs? I`m sure this doesn`t happen but as I recall, all of this PM`ing business came about because of just such a problem with friends voting for each other instead of the best work.

If it was down to me we`d just post and vote like before. As Soka said - it was pure and simple.But I guess that`s no longer an option so just PM`ing and voting as before would be my preferred method and it should be the same across all comps to make it less confusing.

Do you mind the polldaddy? It's actually quite easy to do. Click a link and vote.

Well I don`t really know the difference between the different types of polls but if Bbq says it`s OK then it must be OK so I`ll go along with that. ;)

PM entries OK with me, but PollPaddy not, because it is an external site, that means you sing-up the PDN forum, and don't vote through it, so you can vote more than once in those kind of sites by deleting your history or using another browser, and they don't support the IP address voting...! That is what I believe so and I may be wrong.

If they're that desperate to cheat, they'll find some way, like creating a sockpuppet (assuming there aren't any post count restrictions on voting).

and they don't support the IP address voting...!

They do.

That brings up a good point. You have to be a registered member here to vote in the poll, but on a site like polldaddy or surveymonkey you don't have to be a registered member to vote. That means that anyone could vote in the poll?

Here is what the free version of polldaddy says.....

100 Survey Responses per Month (we might exceed this on one account for all comps)

10 Questions per Survey

Polldaddy Link in Content

Basic Poll & Survey Reports

1 User Account (we would not be able to share an account)

Like I said, you can go ahead and run the AVOTW like that, and I'll run my comps the way I am. I really don't mind if you use polldaddy because it's your comp to run as you see fit. I don't think we need to argue about it, I think we just disagree with the way they should be run. I've been running them for a while now and I'm OK with the way I'm doing it and I'm OK with you running your comp the way you want.

Now for the thing I mentioned on Friday. I have asked three artists on here to create new awards to replace the ribbons I made a while back. One artist each for the three comps I run so everyone who wins the different comps will receive a different award. There will be awards given for the top three places for each comp. I'll post them here as soon as they have them ready and then I'll reveal who the artist for each of them is.

I think that could be viewed as either a good or bad thing...

More votes is a good thing IMO...

I like PollDaddy. It is simple, and anybody can vote. So, I think it is the best way to go.

So you guys think people who aren't even forum members should be able to vote?

I think so too.

Possum, as long as we both keep the same method (PM entries, you can post on other sites, public vote) then there should be no problem. I have already incorporated PM entries and polldaddy, but I have only gotten two entries. PLEASE SUBMIT AN ENTRY!!!!

Hopefully next week will be a little more cooperative and I think we should lock this thread after we reach a decision.
