in a timely manner? why surround the contests with hoopla and then neglect to put any hooplah on the winners? GG's home page, regarding model contests, hasn't been updated in months. what's with that? the contest seems self-tabulating. if as much time and effort went into the model contests as goes into hyping the many workshops that are hyped, this wouldn't be an issue.

let's have the envelope, please.

Wow....isn't THAT the truth.

It is curious the way the results are just kinda swept under the carpet, only to be quietly revealed (almost like an afterthought) some weeks later. Given the closeness of the voting in September, I would think you and Kori Rae aren't the only ones who would be interested in knowing the final tally.

Oh well, since this is probably going to get bounced to the Contest Forum I might as well rant some more.....has anyone ever heard of 95% of the entrants in the October contest? I thought this was supposed to be a 'reward' for community member models. We have a 'bonus' point system for lifetime members who vote....how about the same thing for regularly participating models? (so the votes they RECEIVE are given a greater value)

OK, enough of this trying to communicate before my coffee.

jimmyd and all, I'll take the blame. I actually emailed Mark this morning for the tallies as I fell behind with all the recent event events over the past month. I even sent Korie a PM this morning. I've been on the site since 4:00 a.m. playing catch-up. No excuses, just I'll take the hit and we'll get it up to par shortly, thanks, rg.

glam chic has almost 1600 votes in october's contest with others hot on her tail. can ya believe it? that means--if other months are any indication--that 2/3 of the voting is already completed for october.

2/3

and its a week into october already.

so this current contest... this october contest, is two-thirds over.

two-thirds done.

wow.

And still no word on the September contest. I cant help but feel it is a little disrespecting to the models who do win.

Yep...gotta agree there. It's not like these are ballots that have to be hand counted and checked for hanging chads.

Mea culpas are fine, but it would be better if they were followed up with some results.....but what do I know?

"Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?" is often a problem in such matters.
