    How does that percentage thing work anyway? I have 2 out of 18 votes (currently). That's around 11%.

    Still time to round up additional voters. The polls close sometime late tonight, depending on where you live.

    Heh. I'm surprised True Grit did as well as it did.

    Whoa...this is my first win, and therefore my first time running a contest! Is there a "how to" posted somewhere for me to try to sort out how to put the poll together?

    Please be patient with me...this new old model laptop and I do not work well together, so I may be asking lots of questions a 6 year old would know the answer to!

    Thanks for the votes everyone!

    I'll try to have a category soon!

    You pick a theme and set the parameters (such as movies only or SF&F is or is not allowed.)

    When you go to set up the voting thread, use the multi quote function to get avs into one thread. When you get to the last av, use the regular quote function and you'll have all of the avs in one post.

    Then you can rearrange them or not. Most of us alphabetize by name, but it's not mandatory.
    I make a list on a piece of paper of the names in the order they'll be listed in the poll (mainly so I don't misspell).

    Just before you submit the post of the avs, scroll down and you'll be asked if you want to post a poll.

    You'll also be asked how many options do you want, i.e. our names.

    There is a space at the top of the poll where you can post the number of votes we get.

    You also have the option of setting how many days you want the poll to be open and whether you want the votes to be public.


    I know is seems complicated -- I had the worst time when I first started doing these polls. In fact I had to do a few of my early efforts more than once. :alienblush:

    Good luck!

    ^ I never use the multi-quote function; I just copy the images and paste them into the post.

    That's also an option. I use multiquote because it's faster.

    Thank you!

    I'll try to have something started tomorrow (just expect the actual poll part to take me a few attempts!)

    Cheers!

    Hi there,

    I've been trying to start the new contest...but my "wonderful" Flickr account (yet again!) won't size the image 150 x 150!

    I haven't forgotten about this! I'll try again in an hour or so!

    (unless someone can suggest a Flickr fix?? :))

    Post the image and I'll take care of it. I have Photobucket.

    Thanks Jinx, I'd really appreciate it! I tried to resize it again today in the thread I started, but no joy. (and yet Flickr did size my "mythology"entry correctly moments before. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong...)

    Anyway, thanks again!
