[joking]
I know at least three people that didn't vote for themselves.
[/joking]
 
4 actually,
I did not vote for mine.....not sure who did or if there is a way to see who did.
I know on some forums there is an option that lets you see

There's an option to make the poll public, but I'm against it. I don't really care how people vote unless they choose to share it. I do like reading why people voted a certain way, or reading their thoughts on a given piece, but that's their choice to share or not. Let's not start taking this contest too seriously. ;)
 
Hence the [joking] tags. :)

I'm a firm believer in the privacy of any electoral process (politics or contests). I will say that I have a personal moral objection to voting for my own creative piece, but that's me and it's my issue. I WILL have thoughts about people that do in contests but I honestly don't care about a light-hearted contest like this where there is no real prize.

I fully expect, if able, that a politician will vote for themselves because governing is not a sport. There are real consequences, and they should fully believe in what they taut enough to support themselves.

Back to our regularly scheduled poll thread... (borrowed from another thread that went off-topic recently).
 
When does voting close? My phone isn't showing the pictures...and even if my vote goes to a "loser", I still want to show support to an entrant. (I have always hated the disenfranchising of voters because the winner seems "obvious"...that why the US has the current president)
 
The poll is set to run for seven days and will close on Saturday. So, still plenty of time for people to vote. :)

In all honesty... Why so long? Isn't three to four days enough? It's just that I've developed a slight distaste for competitions that last shorter than they could have :-/

Well, you'd have to ask @Soran77, who created the poll. ;)

Looking back at some of the past voting threads, most of them ran for two to four days. Personally, I would be okay with giving this another day or two and ending it then. Not because I'm in the lead at the moment (:shifty:), but because it would be cool to get the ball rolling on the new contest. @Soran77, what do you think? Would four days be okay for you? :)
 
In the past, we've done multiple votes, but not too often. It's been one of the things in the discretion of the winner and contest originator from month to month. Same for multiple entries.
 
The poll was set to 7 days as default, so I assumed that's how long the voting was before because I usually didn't pay attention to how long the polls were open before, that being said, the new contest could do a two month run, that's been done intentionally before, especially during times people would normally be outside a lot more, or the holidays, but you are welcome to close the poll M. I think the poll length should be at the winners discretion but only up to a maximum of 7 days to give time for the new contest to get rolling
 
I would say leave it open for a little bit longer... In recent past, we haven't had a poll up for several days, so it took me a while to know the poll was running. And it gives people travelling/offline for the holidays a chance to see it.

Lots of good entries, and a tight race, so I think it'd be good for democracy ;)
 
Most of the past voting took ~3 days, so that we could get going on the next month's challenge without much time lost. But this one was over a holiday, so a bit longer would be understandable.
 
*Ack!* Just realized what you did, M! :lol: If for some reason the influx of Misc people puts me over the top, M, you have my permission to assign the next month's challenge to someone else (or take it yourself if you're second). Not that I wouldn't mind winning, but I'll be completely out of contact for two weeks starting tomorrow. My son and I are going to the Boy Scouts' Northern Tier high adventure base, and we'll be canoeing in the lakes of Minnesota, far away from any civilization for that entire time.

Well, right now it almost looks like this might just happen. :lol: It's pretty close at the moment. I say we let the poll open for another day, maybe until Friday morning, and see about the new contest then. :)

That sounds really awesome! I hope you guys have fun and come back safe.
 
I've truly come to realize (in my case) that minimal effort begets minimal reward. :lol:
 
Oh wow, these are great! I am having trouble choosing, but I am going to vote after this post right... now.., after this period... now. Period.
 
Well, that was a close one. Congratulations, M! What a welcome as the new Moderator of the Fan Art Forum.
And well done to everyone who entered - another amazing range of art. I hope we have more of the same this month.

I am strongly in favor of having a WAY shorter voting time for next round guys. A glance at a voting thread is easily done and won't take more than a couple of minutes. It's already the 8th and we don't even have a subject for this month yet; I do like to have some time to work on my projects...

That being said: Congrats M! Well deserved :-)
 
@Cyfa is right, winning this contest is really a nice way to make my debut around here. Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who voted for my entry and to everyone that voted in general. This was fun! And it looks like my heads-up thread in Misc. drew at least some people over here to vote. Let's hope this continues into this month's challenge.

Before I go on an post the new contest I want to share something with you I've been working on for the last couple of days. In an attempt to update @Ptrope's list of past contests here, I created a new, exhaustive and unforeseenly long list of every monthly Trek Art challenge since 2004. Working my way backwards through the archived contests on @Ptrope's own webspace, I was able to compile all 152 (!) contests and winners, spanning 13 years – which is an eternity on the internet. I'm sure by this point this has to be one of the, if not the, longest-running traditions on the the TrekBBS. It's something to be proud of, methinks.

While collecting the data, searching for long-forgotten threads and wading through the creativity and fun that went down in this forum over the last decade, I was struck by the apparent dedication of not only all the Trek Art regulars past and present, but also the dedication of @Ptrope's work as the moderator and steward of these contest. This forum was lucky to have you at the steering wheel. :techman:

So without further ado, here's the list for all you TrekBBS hobby historians out there. I included all links to the original Enter and Voting threads as well as a link to the archived images on ptrope.com. If someone spots a mistake or has some further knowledge of the contest that were held before 2004 (I found just one from 2003, when @Vektor was the moderator), please let me know and I will edit the list.

Also, just for fun, here are the top winners of all time, for anyone who's interested. I'm standing in awe before your accomplishments, dear sirs!
  1. B.J. (15 wins)
  2. Klaus and Ptrope (14 wins both)
  3. Starscape (10 wins)
  4. Flux Capacitor and The Lensman (7 wins both)
  5. BK613 (6 wins)
  6. Albertese and Solarbaby (5 wins)
