I noticed that a lot of models will purposely vote a 1 (poorest grade) for models that look good just so they can get higher up on the contest. For example , there was a very pretty blond model that had an outstanding photo in this recent contest and she had 15 (1) votes! what's up with that? That's the thing about honesty ... some people just can't handle that someone else looks good.

My Question is...if you're going to give a one, why vote at all..its still adds a point to the models score..so if a model wanted to be petty and jealous. why vote at all??

Look at last months winner...I think she had over 30 (one) votes.

I couldnt agree more, and I think it just shows caddiness and low self esteem.

While this is obviously a flaw in the way the GG contest is set up, and even more so a flaw on some of the models parts. The GG contest is the best run and has the best set up of all the contests i've seen.

Hopefully everyone will vote based on how they truly feel about the model and photo and not let their standings in the contest influence their decisions.

I currently have 19 (1's ) in this contest. I'm not arrogant enough to think that everyone should give me 10's, but I don't think that my entry is 1 quality either. I would only give a 1 to someone who entered a very bad webcam or phonecam pic.

Ahhh...the joys of competition

I don't think that someone giving a one vote is as bad as it sounds

If you figure that the lead has about 130 + votes
And a few down in the rankings get about 60+ votes

all the one votes add up ( it just looks bad )
Nothing is said about the 40 some votes of ZERO some have gotten

First, how can you tell how many 1's anyone got? I couldn't find that info.

Solutions:

1. Don't let models vote in the model contest.
2. Make the vote public for any score under say, a five. If you're going to slam someone by giving a one, two, or three, have the balls to be held accountable.

Just my two cents...and worth every penny.

I don't think you can "not vote". The little javascript error box comes up. Yes I am guilty, I tried. I just wanted to fly over the folks that are only on GG for the contest.

Actually you can go directly to who ever you want to vote for by going through the thumbnails instead of letting it force you through the main contest entrance.
