Vote Swapping

I see that almost all the topics involve trading votes. I thought this was an objective contest about art, not Survivor.

Unfortunately it's half and half. Everyone with enough votes moves to the final round... then it's an objective contest judged by professionals and website staff. At first I was not stoked about the setup, and seeing some of the super awesome shots with 5 votes and some snapshots with 200 votes, I'm still not stoked. But with the sheer volume of entries, I honestly can't say I could think of a better way to narrow down the field between round one and round two. But I totally hear you!

David, I felt that way at the beginning. Now realize that Phase ! is getting 250 votes without regard for your artistic talent. Have to have them in order to compete under their jury part, Phase II. Yes, silly is the adjective I use on a public forum....

This whole thing makes me ILL. I will be removing my entries and will not participate in a vote for this ridiculous contest and it's encouragement of pandering for votes. That this sort of thing is supported by staff means I will be looking to take my business elsewhere.
