Contest Voting??? Answered


I'm really sorry if this is an ignorant question, however, I'm a bit confused with several of the contests as of now. Many of them are giving me the option to vote on entries.  I thought the voting phase was supposed to start after the contest deadline.  Is that not so?

They just changed how it works.

You can read about their reasons on the instructables blog: https://blog.instructables.com/2011/07/voting-now-open-during-contests/

I think it's a great way to even things out since people who entered at the end used to have an advantage.

Yeah that is alright but they removed the rating view of instructables! Why did they do that??

Because some members have a bad habit of rating competitors down on purpose.
