Where is your entry for the Origami contest? I though that I would bring it to your attention. Have a splendorous day!

Why did you delete your instructables? They were very good?
nepheron (author)  dombeef3 years ago
I've decided to return, most of my 'ibls are back but a few are still gone. Fungus says those will be back in a week or two :)
Yay! But why?

Kiteman helped judge a contest before, he says the reason votes are generally ignored is because people will make fake accounts and vote for themselves. The current system isn't perfect, but it's the best that can be done. Now I can understand why the contests are handled this way, and I guess I agree with it.

However, in the future, I think that this issue should be made more apparent to people entering contests.
to be fair:
though I agree that the rules aren't published, Staff have openly discussed the method of how winners are selected on many other contests for a while. You've been a member since 2007, you must have noticed how other contests were handled?

Honestly, I didn't notice at all. I never really thought to question it.

Yes, thanks to your explanation of how the voting system works. I understand now :)
Welcome back. :)
