The Worst thing ever! Answered

This is horrible! everyone is going to vote for their own! That is a big problem!. (I know the pic is random)

I thought it said somewhere that the staff will remove fraudulent votes.

I vote for my own.

How did you know that everyone is voting for their own?

He most likely doesn't have proof, but because of the way things are looking, it is pretty self-explanatory that all the ones farther down will get self-votes.

Ahh, I see, I did not look in the lower level instructables, but thanks anyway.

I only entered my good ones, and I don't even think that they're that great.

Good! That's what we need.

By the way, I looked at some of yours, and they're not too bad!

Thanks. Yours are pretty good too!

Thanks! I am about to release How To Build a Tesla Coil.

Sweet. I'm looking forward to it.

i feel like the whole thing is just to participate in the spirit of competition. i voted for my own, yes, but i also voted for all the cool ones and most of them are in the top 20. the truth is, those projects and instructables are cooler than my own and there's no shame in admitting that!

yeah, I was just saying it could happen.

Everybody stop adding EVERYTHING you have made, ITS STUPID

I agree. It is a waste of time for the judges, and if you have one amazing instructable, and 5000 other ones, THEN JUST ENTER THE GOOD ONE!

I DON'T KNOW WHAT WE'RE YELLING ABOUT

YOU'RE NOT YELLING, YOU'RE TYPING IN CAPS. AND IT'S HAPPENING BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE ANGRY, AND ANGRY PEOPLE TYPE IN ALL CAPS. IF THEY ARE REALLY ANGRY, THEY'LL EVEN USE BOLD. PERHAPS THEY MIGHT BE YELLING IF THEY'RE USING A SPEECH RECOGNITION SOFTWARE, LIKE DRAGON, BUT ODDS ARE, IT WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO PICK IT UP.

YELLING

Don't worry about it people! The staff overall chooses them in the end. If some useless K'NEX thing gets all of the votes, obviously it will not get put into the book. The staff knows the system, you just have to trust it.

actually it is a mix of votes and staff.

In the end, all decisions are up to the staff. Our votes are only to show them what we want. Besides, it's never been that people only vote for themselves before.

"This is horrible! everyone is going to vote for their own!"

You asked the question, I'm just quoting you. I really don't care. And your kinda right, I don't see the word ONLY in there, but I guess that's how people took it. Like I said, I don't care.

but if everyone votes for their own everyone will have an equal # of votes

That has never happened in contests before, so I doubt it will happen here.

I was just quoting Bartboy's opening statement. He asked when he'd said that. It really doesn't matter to me one way or the other.

Wow... have you noticed the contests before hand let you voet for your own?

If you want to make sure that the best possible Instructables get into the book, vote often and vote well. You all should know what good projects are. Show your support by casting your vote.

When it comes time for the staff to pick the ibles, randy, remember I made two instructables just for you...one for free...I'd do another if you posted another request in burning questions... :D

</Kidding>

Seriously, Randofo is right. VOTE. One teensy little vote from the author isn't gonna make any difference!

i dont think there going to be a problem with people voting for their own stuff .i put in my best projects and if i get in the book ill be happy but i wont vote for my own stuff. 1 vote will not make that much difference. i wish the best of luck to all those who entered and when i vote it will be for quality.

Its a bit of an issue. And whos going to go through 500+ instructables to vote for their favorate?

Remember that adding all of your Instructables will actually decrease your chances of getting in, as the votes will be more spread out.

they will only get one vote, and anyway Eric and the team are great at stopping people do that sort of thing
