Is ANYONE voting for the Art of Sound Contest? Answered

So I am searching through the art of sounds instructables. I vote, flip through the steps and whatnot. When I vote it might say "Current votes: 21" or something. Well, I am looking at the stats, and it looks like only about 2% of people are voting. For example, my entry has over 600 views. Yesterday, over 110 people looked at it. Did I get any votes? NO. I still only have 3. And that is me, my friend, and my other friend. Another one I saw had over 16,000 views, 5 star rating, and only 31 votes Why are so little people voting?

Well it is ok that you did not make it this time you probably will win another type of contest.

Yeah right. (sarcasm) First off, every contest they come out with, I either can't buy, or there is nothing I can think of. I will never win anything.

Well in the long run you will come up with something or be able to buy that certain part.

OMG wtf. No offence, but how do you manage to post something that is not something you need, but I post something that will help you with a necessity and yet yours gets featured? Can someone explain that to me? I mean, I know the staff picks what they like, but why K'nex? There are too many good ones for just 1 to be featured.

If it's my opinion the staff got to take a wide look at every thing there is and not only i one category that would be unfair so not just what they like. Because a lot of us don't even like sewing still they make a contest for it. Well i like k'nex lego a lot and a lot of others do too but no contest. And your dam right there are to much for just 1 to be featured.

Not everyone looking is a member with the ability to vote, and of those who are, not everyone is looking more than a click to see what it is. Of those who look at it, read it and can vote, not all of them understand voting, and of the remainder only a few can be bothered and think it's worth voting for.
Much of the site traffic is "outsiders" passing through, and a lot of the inside traffic isn't confined to people going through contest entries for voting purposes.

I thought outsiders didn't count as views?

I couldn't be sure, but I see views as page loads, you may be right.
Anyway, the one you posted isn't a make, so regardless of it's content it's not one that people are likely to vote for when they've got actual thingies to vote for.
