After carefully reviewing the model contest, emails, conversations with Lifetime members, models and others, we've decided to extend the contest till June 1st, at that time, on June 2, the final winners will be announced. The contest is closed for new submissions and open only for voting by Lifetime Models and Photographers!

When the contest first started we had confusion by some. During the tweaking of the site, the ability for folks to enter the contest was stopped, inadvertantly for about 12 days after we had only 27 entries. It wasn't till some members complained about the situation that we found the bug and reactivated the system.

In addition, the system needs some fine-tuning and we're working on that. One problem is if one model has one vote and that vote is a "10" and another model has twenty various numbered votes that "average" to say 9.95, the model with one vote would win. The contest favored late entrants rather than early entrants the way the program was set up initially.

By extending the contest for two weeks we allow some competition as models who are in the contest can "encourage" new voters to vote highly for them. I also encourage all Lifetime members to vote on every image to make it fair for all the models.

For the record, I leave shortly for the Maui workshop. Any replies, negative or positive, I will not be able to answer readily. Let's make this contest fair for everyone. There will be no further extensions. On June 1st, Texas Central Time, midnight, the decisions will be final. And yes, I still have to vote too. Thanks, rg sends!

I'd vote and support the contest but do not see any instructions on how to do so.

No link on the top that says "G1 Model Contest" or similar and the contest link in the forums just described contests at other places.

Gotta make it obvious.

Of course if a model reads this and wants to post an answer using her image as an example of how to vote....

the link to vote for me is in my signature. If you would like to look at the other images in the contest, click on my link and just go back to the "model contest#1"
Hope that earns a vote. =) *wink*

I'd noticed that a few weeks ago and wondered how that aspect of the contest would be handled. Made me wonder if an entry window (something like the final week of any give month prior to the following month's contest) could be set up. That way any model would have the chance to upload her image during that 10 day period, and all would have an equal footing for the month of voting.

For those missing uploading a shot during that week-long entry window, well, there's always next months contest.

Of course that doesn't end run the problem of low-voting a model (which I thought I saw some of during this past competition). Doesn't take a mathematical genius to figure out when an entrant's image gets ratings in the 10 to 7 range and suddenly pulls a stray 2 or 3 that something's not kosher. While I recognize opinions can widely vary, at the same time things like that are a red flag to me of more an agenda to move someone up at the expense of another. But then again, those instances are pretty obvious and thankfully rare (particularly since the ownership of the low vote is right there with the casting). So they can be dealt with on an individual basis.

My thoughts on it anyway.

Dave

Terrace, I like the new avatar. Also, I already voted for you. If I could I'd vote for you again.

You didn't miss the party, we're actually still waiting on the official announcement. So I guess if you did miss the party, then we all did

WOW,you guys are really impatient. It has only been about 6 weeks since the second deadline. Dont you know how long it takes to count votes!!! There were hanging chads, and the old folks from Florida couldnt figure out how to vote. People these things take time.


JUST KIDDING.
