It more confusing than it needs to be Coyote.Just a thought, perhaps I'm mistaken. The way voting is set up and the wording of the voting page, it can be interpreted by some voters that they are voting on the pictures and not the member. Does anyone else get this sense besides me?
Yeah.. I'd feel compelled to use someone's picture or how cool their car looks to help me through the process.. since I wouldn't really be familiar with any of them. Seems as though more newbies participate in the voting process than nominations too.. Plus the ones who sign up during the second half of the contest.I spend some time on the Chargerforumz. But I do not vote on there because I don't spend enough time on there to get to know all the members. I don't want to vote for just pics. I think someone has to spend a good amount of time on a forum to get to know the helping members best. This may be the case here. ??? :4-dontknow:
Its just when I vote, theres a ton of pictures with vague definitions of what I'm on voting on. I get on how to vote, but I can definitely see how its confusing to some members. Especially for someone thats not exactly computer friendly. And lets be honest, being unfamiliar with computers shouldn't inhibit car enthusiasts from voting due to confusion.Please explain so we have an idea what's confusing. I thinks it's handled the same across all the forums that are participating in this contest. I'm not sure if this has been brought up in the other one's before.
I can't speak to the entire process. I remember when I first started voting, I was confused and I am very computer literate--I make my living on a pc. Anyway, when you click on the link to vote, you get to a page that has two sections one titled "Recent Photos - 2011 Dodge Challenger Member of the Month - April" and the one below it is "Most Popular Images - 2011 Dodge Challenger Member of the Month - April."Please explain so we have an idea what's confusing. I thinks it's handled the same across all the forums that are participating in this contest. I'm not sure if this has been brought up in the other one's before.
I may be wrong but I don't think that this can be added at the voting gallery. I do intend to try to make it more clear on the voting thread that has the link. Of course I am assuming that people are reading the post and not just blowing past it.Maybe something along the way that says, "You are voting for whom you think should be the member of the month based on his or her contributions to this site." I don't know, just a thought.
I agree Tom. If you just go to the voting gallery not knowing you would pick the picture. People that nominate members know that it is about the member, not the pic. And we always have a number of newbies that vote, I can't say what their influence is for their vote.I was over my brother's house one weekend for a party and there were 4 gentlemen that I had come over to the computer when voting was open and showed them the page one by one. Without saying a word to them about the process, they all said one by one that they liked this or that picture best. In other words, they all thought that the voting was about the picture on not the member. Just saying..........
