    Default Contest: Vote for the official 2012 Vapor Station brand ECF Signature Banner!

    I have compiled a list of a banner from each of the contestants in the previous thread. In this thread, each person can cast a single vote. The winner as of June 1, 2012 will be deemed winner.

    ***Please keep in mind I am only allowed to include 15 options for the Poll. I had to remove some of the entries for that reason and kept the maximum entries to 3. If you are one of the folks who had their entries cut short and would like to replace one or more of the banner entries I included with one of the ones I didn't, please feel free to PM me and I'll replace them!

    Here we go!

    Purr-sonally... I think the names should have been left off of the entries to keep things more anonymous...

    (although a couple of them are quite obvious... lol)

    Not cool.

    I don't have a horse in this race, and I couldn't care less who wins.

    But VaporStation is looking for the best banner, not the person who solicit votes.


    Deleted because original was deleted. Carry on! Nothing to see here...

    Good luck all. Great looking entries!!!

    Thanks for sharing that!!!

    Well I DO have a horse in this race, and I was wondering how the votes for that banner went from zero to 18 overnight?? She has been a member here long enough to know that most of us frown on that sort of thing...
    If you wanted to PM a few friends**, we can't stop you... but openly soliciting for Votes is just poor sportsmanship!!

    Maybe it's just because you felt that you wouldn't have won on your own merit, I don't know... but this is one of the main reasons why I have never liked the kind of contests that are determined by the # of 'Likes' a certain entry receives... whether it is on Facebook, or now on the ECF!! It turns into a popularity contest and not fair for the people with the most talent...

    IMHO, the voter pool has been compromised, and the person responsible should either be disqualified, or the people at VS should just pick the one that they feel is best to represent their company.

    Sorry for the Rant, but this really struck a nerve with me... grr.gif




    ** Right now she has more Votes than Friends... LMAO!!!

    I'm not going to disqualify De, but I will disqualify the vote count until the post is removed, and begin counting from there.

    Posting elsewhere to vote for your specific banner corrupts the entire process and is detrimental to the entire purpose of the contest.

    This is the official 2012 Vapor Station brand ECF Signature Banner contest. This should be representative of people's actual preference of the banners, not the preference of the artists who made them.

    I posted a comment in the thread where her OP was, and 3 people admitted to voting because they actually LIKED that banner the best... If you take into consideration that she would have probably voted for herself (LOL) then that would leave the count at 4 Legitimate Votes.

    But either way, the damage has been done and there is no way to guarantee an impartial outcome now...



    Btw... thanks for removing the names from the entries!!
    (but I guess now it's kind of a moot point)

    Ok, I seriously didn't think it was that big of a deal since I see people asking for votes in contests like this all the time. It also wasn't against any rules posted.

    I also said vote for whoever/whichever banner was liked best, but that I thought it wouldn't hurt to beg for one of my own.

    That banner had 4 votes BEFORE I posted that(yes that includes my own vote, I liked G1 and H1 the best, but chose to vote for myself) So I guess other people liked it before I posted it to where my friends hang out.

    I only posted it one time, in the one thread that I spend almost all of my time here in. The same people that spend time in that thread are the same people on my friends list (yes SpaceKitty, some of them aren't on my friends list, just never added them all since I talk to them everyday anyway)

    The post has been removed. I apologize for upsetting everyone.

    Thank you for removing the post, DeviantDe. I fully 100% support posting the contest anywhere and everywhere, the only thing is it just throws the authenticity of what is considered by most to be the best banner out of whack when you ask them to vote for yours specifically.

    We'll set an informal count of 8 votes for G1.

    Does that sound fair to everyone?
