Finalists Selection

Hi! I recently entered one of my i'bles(the sunflower one) in the citizen science contest. So, I have a few questions which I hope someone to answer. First, that if I have posted an i'ble which lets say got 50 votes and another i'ble posted by XYZ(someone else)  which got 100 votes, But the former is more relevant than the former. Now, at the time of the finalists selection which one will be selected? Second, it is not exactly a question rather a problem.And it is that, whenever I post in the forum topic "The Clinic" for some suggestions and tips on my i'ble I do not get any reply at all (Only got a reply 1-2 times).So, what shall I do? Hope someone  will reply. Pranjal

Unexpected Finalists

I noticed that only four of the finalists are winning by views or ratings. Why is that? A lot of out of the blue (no offense) Instructables have been promoted to finalists, what is the reason to this? Is this to do with judging or are there other more sinister reasons...

Help us judge the contest by rating this forum post! Check out all the finalists in the master list or in the Laser Cutter Finalists Group!It seems that many are interested what each finalist would do if they happened to win the Laser Cutter. In my case I would be very excited to produce small, limited edition mechanical sculptures. Everything that currently comes out of my studio is one of a kind, time consuming and expensive. While this may suit the incredibly scarce population of wealthy collectors, it leaves the rest of us in the lurch. I would like to bridge this gap with pieces that are equally fascinating and affordable. A whole army of little tin-toy style robots and monsters! Not to mention countless detailing and production aspects of my traditional work. Custom etched switch plate covers, precision cams, and on and on. If you would like to see examples of the design sense that I would apply to these little beasties, please visit my website.Thanks to you all for so many interesting entries. I now find myself using instructables like an encyclopedia whenever I encounter unknown territory in my studio. I hope my contribution was useful to some of you in the same way.

Honus- Finalist

Honus is a finalist in the Laser Cutter Challenge for:How to make a Green Lantern ring-including a glowing version!This is a forum post created by Instructables on behalf of the finalist. Help us judge the contest by rating this forum post! Check out all the finalists in the master list or in theLaser Cutter Finalists Group! I just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone for being considered a finalist- this is a great site with a tremendous amount of knowledge, talent and inspiration for individuals like myself that want to create as well as learn from others. There were so many great entries (350!) in this contest that if you haven't perused the entire group, please do so- there's something for everyone! As for my own entry, after reading through it you may discover that the beauty of learning this mold and pattern making process is that you can then make all sorts of custom resin castings, which makes for some pretty cool projects like custom cases for electronics projects, custom resin cast jewelry or that special part you need to create for your own project. You're only really limited by your imagination!And since people ask "what would YOU do with a laser cutter?" this the proposal I came up with according to the original rules (I had posted this a while back in the forums)-It is important to me as it has to do with how I feel as a community we can have a really positive impact in the world not just by offering our instructables but by directly helping those in need and at the same time promoting ourselves and this site. I think it's a neat idea and while I'm sure there would need to be some tweaks here and there I believe the overall idea itself is sound.My idea would be to start a laser service- with a twist.Let's say someone posts an instructable in the laser group that requires the use of the laser for their project. I would provide that at a given cost based on the complexity of the job- let's just say $40. From that $40, 20% would go into a Paypal/bank account to be held seperately for a charity.Now let's say that person wants duplicates for themselves to sell on eBay or wherever. I would do this at a reduced cost, say $30. This is because the setup work has already been done. Now 25% of the money goes into the charity account.Now let's say that someone reads the original instructable and wants to create the item for themselves. It would cost them $40 but now $5 goes back to the creator of the instructable and still 20% goes into the charity account.When the charity account reaches $500 everyone that has posted an instructable in the laser group votes on where the money goes- it can be a school, Humane Society, Habitat for Humanity, needy family, scholarship fund, etc. but it will have to be limited to a few choices during every voting session. The money is then donated in the name of Instructables.com -everyone that creates something here gets to see their projects create a direct impact on the world around them in the form of this charity donation.The original creator of the instructable also gets $5 every time their instructable is used to create a product that they designed!Well that's my idea- I know the rules concerning the contest have changed but I'm still going to do this anyway if I'm lucky enough to win. That's been my plan all along and I think it's something that benefits everyone and I'm sticking to it! :DThanks!!And for those interested, more of my instructables are here: https://www.instructables.com/tag/?limit%3Atype%3Ainstructable=on&sort;=none&q;=Honus

Make it Real Finalists

After much heated deliberation (and crowding around Carley's computer), the finalists for the Make it Real Challenge are now live! With over 1,100 entries, it was extremely difficult narrowing it down to just 50. It took us most of the day, but we managed to cut the list down to size. Of course, there were a number of great projects that just missed the cut. With so much on the line, we did not make this decision lightly. We thank everyone who entered. We would also like to congratulate everyone who made the cut and were selected as finalists!

turkey tek- Finalist

Turkey tek is a finalist in the Laser Cutter Challenge for:Interactive Multitouch DisplayHelp judge the contest by rating this forum post! For those that care what I would do with a laser cutter:1. I will use the laser cutter to shape young minds; precisely.2. I will use the laser cutter to engrave space filling curves on everything...even other space filling curves.3. I will use the laser cutter to build up furniture out of layers of cardboard.4. I will use the laser cutter to build the structural elements of another laser cutter. High power laser diodes are getting incredibly cheap these days. Once I have time to understand how to build high current pulsed power supplies without current overshoot, itsa done deal. 5. I will use the laser cutter to fairly divide complicated pies among multiple individuals. Coupled with cheap desktop FDM (food deposition manufacture) machines, you will soon be able to download a fractal pie from the internet, fabricate it, and then cut it into little tiny fractaline pieces, all the while not wearing any pants.6. I will use the laser cutter in a massive alternate reality game I've been planning for several years which will involve fabricating 2**12 unique procedurally generated puzzles.7. I will use the laser cutter to double the number of gold spheres I own by making the byzantine, low kerf cuts required to implement the Banach-Tarski paradox8. I will use the laser cutter to efficiently remove corporate logos from consumer goods. This is something I currently do with sandpaper or an exacto knife, but with a laser cutter, I would offer to do it FREE for anyone who wanted to send me their cellphone, mouse, laptop, etc.9. I will use the laser cutter to machine microfluidic devices for experimental kitchen use.10. I will use the laser cutter to piece aperiodic quilts and quilts of varying curvatures 11. I will use the laser cutter to do anything any other finalist proposes to do, twice!

How are finalists being chosen?

I am pretty new to the site, but I have tried entering a few contests in the past few months. I was wandering, if the finalists are chosen based on the votes, then clearly people who have many followers / a blog or a YouTube channel will have more votes going against people with none of those. So if there is a great project with not many votes (due to the reasons i just stated) does it even have a chance of winning? thanks in advance

Question by HadasW 11 months ago  |  last reply 11 months ago


What are your picks for the Laser Cutter Finalists?

We're busy doing a round of approval voting to help select the finalists for the Laser Cutter Contest. In this round, judges give a "yes" or "no/no opinion" vote to each entry. We rank the entries by total number of "yes" votes and the top 10 become finalists. While I haven't gone through everything yet, I've been adding Instructables I plan to vote "yes" for to my favorites (by clicking the "favorite link" right above the comments). Again, I'm not done yet, but you can check out my current picks here in my favorites.What are your picks for finalists? Post you top picks as comments, or if you have a lot, post a link to your favorites.Remember that an additional four finalists will be selected based on pageviews and positive ratings as recorded around Monday January 7th ( Laser Cutter Contest rules). So, there's still time to vote for and tell your friends about your Instructable or your favorites. Also, we just added some sorting options for groups to make seeing who is in the lead that much easier:Laser Cutter Contest entries sorted by pageviewsLaser Cutter Contest entries sorted by rating

Voting for your favorite entries in contests

Instructables members can vote for an entry during the contests plus 3 days after the contests close, which helps the Instructables staff in selecting few of the finalists. This has lead to many of the contest entries carrying out "Vote for me" campaign even before the entry is accepted in a particular contest. Entrants also send personal messages to other members asking for votes for their entry and also seek votes in reply to comments. Almost all of the contests carry huge prizes for the winners, which no other DIY website other than Instructables is offering. So, everybody wants to win contests and spend so much of their time and money to produce outstanding DIY projects. However, due to the voting system to decide part of the finalists, somebody may exercise some unfair means to get selected as a finalist. What if a member has garnered considerable amount of vote bank and every time gets a fair amount of votes for their entries in the contests? What if a member has created few fake accounts and vote for themselves through that fake accounts? Is there a way to keep a check on this kind of unfair means?

Why?: Contest, Finalists, OAE, and... WHAT?

EDIT: This has turned out to be a really long post. Please see the top comment if you don't want to read everything, or if you aren't a scanner (seriously...). I did my best to stop my longforumtopicisitis disease... I don't really know how to write this "topic". I know I'm not the only one that's a bit upset about it. I'll do my best to keep it short, but if you might get pretty confused if you don't read (almost) everything. I would really like to hear your 100% HONEST opinion. I am looking for criticism. Don't worry if your response sounds harsh. Thank you. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Instructables member OAE has posted several forum topics about contest winners in the past months. I understand the fact that he is annoyed some Instructables that win in contests aren't original, aren't documented very well, and lack pictures. It does bug me a bit when these types of Instructables win, but I guess that there's normally a reason for that, since most contests don't lack entries... He also mentioned the fact that he was pretty annoyed about the fact that he doesn't win. I DO NOT want to insult him in any way, but even though his Instructables are fairly well documented, I wouldn't expect for one of his Instructables to be a finalist. Brooklyntonia wrote that "A paper airplane on a cutting mat doesn't scream click and vote.", and I agree. However, I seem to have the same (I think) problem with my Instructables, and I think that it has  just gotten a bit too much. I've won in 3 contest with 86 I'bles (think of that as 50, if you know what I mean...), which is why I feel a bit weird for "complaining". It's not that I publish Instructables just for winning in contests. Far from that. SOOOOOOOO MANY times in the past year, I have posted an Instructable that I was absolutely positive that would win in a contest, but it wasn't even a runner up! I have SO MANY! It would take me an hour to post half of them, but here are some: Articulating 70W Spectrum-Balanced LED Panel for the Lamps & Lighting Contest How to Make a Wooden 6" Bench-Vise for the Wood Contest The Flat-Pack Bandsaw for the Flat-Pack Contest (less than the others, though...) How to Build a Wooden Drill-Press Vise for the Hand-tools Only Contest 9 Unusual Tool Storage Methods for Your Workshop for the Living without Closets Contest Make Your Own Plywood Mallet! for the Plywood Contest World's Most Over-Engineered 14-in-1 Soldering Station! for the Leftovers Contest Please correct me if I'm wrong: These Instructable are featured, well documented, meet the contests requirements, contain well lit high quality photos, are original (90%, of course...). I "politely encourage" people to vote only in an Instructable that I think will win... I would understand not winning at all once or twice, but not even being a runner up even once? WHAT am I doing SO HORRIBLY WRONG? What discourages me even more is that even though I want to build something that I really need, I will wait for months until a contest opens, start making, spend a ton of time on the Instructable, and then I realise that I waited for so long, and my I'ble hasn't even won! Benne, however, even though we both publish somehow similar content, has mastered this somehow! If I make something, I have to type up the Instructable immediately, because my short term memory is pretty bad. I wrote about this a bit here. If I calm the excitement down, I might be able not to publish it right away, but that will just discourage me, since I will feel that I haven't accomplished anything (aka positive feedback, etc...). Then after waiting several months, I will publish the I'ble and still not win? Imagine your boss, at work, saying "Okay (your name), you've spent 10 hours working, but I'm going to pay you only next year. Oh, nevermind, we're having budget cuts. I'm not going to pay you at all" Wait, WHAT? WHY? I'm making this sound as if it's a bet, which is okay since you don't get "paid" from Instructables, but never getting anything at all is annoying. Also, publishing Instructables is not extremely addicting (A REAL one... ;)  I think I am following the contest guidelines, but not winning again, and again... Why? Is there something that I don't know? Thank you for reading!

How do I see who the finalists are for contest in the new contest layout?

Hi I'm having trouble seeing who the finalists are for the pallet contest in the new contest page layout, could someone explain to me how to see just the finalists and not every entry into the contest.  Thanks a bunch! (In the old layout there use to be a button that said "finalists", all you had to do was click the button and presto there they were. I wish that button would come back. Also, I'm having trouble trouble judging the swimwear contest. I received the email to judge and I clicked the link to go to the ballot, but I just get directed to the contest page for the swimwear contest.  I'm logged in so I don't know what the issue could be.  If you have any information to help me with this as well as my first question I would be very appreciative.  Thank you.

Do I have a chance of winning a contest, if I'm not in the finalists, before the judging period ends?

Please answer my question to the best of your ability. I entered the solar contest with 2 entires and the judges choose 34 people to be finalists, but the judging does not end for a couple of more days. I'm not currently a finalist and was wondering if I have a chance in possibly in becoming one before the judging is over.
