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?

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.

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.
