View Full Version : Voting Week#44 & #45 2016

Apr 20th, 2017, 06:42 AM
Here is the idea I mentioned in the email to catch up with voting for POTW 2016.

I moved 6 photos into each of the 6 categories for weeks #44 & #45

When 1st going to the links below before you vote, you will see every photo having 0 votes.
This is set to be sure vote count won't sway your own vote.

POTW Finalists November Week #44 2016

POTW Finalists November Week #45 2016

Once I have all 6 entries for the 6 categories, I'll turn on the voting.
There are 2 differences from our standard way of voting:

The system does not allow a member to vote for their own photo. We have no control to make changes on that, it's already programmed.
Once you vote, you and others can see only the count of votes on each photo, NOT who voted.
With this voting option, it is not automatically closed at the end of designated days, I have to close it manually.

Below is a screen shot of what you will see when following this link.



Here is a screen-shot below of one category and how it will look.
Only I will see the text where the red arrows are pointing.

I'm feeling a bit dense this morning. I can't figure out how to place a vote.

Update: I just spotted the vote button. Never mind....

I'm having problems with the voting too.
I voted yesterday, but there was one category that wasn't ready for voting yet. So I wanted to see if it was ready today.
But now there is this message for both weeks and all categories (at least as I see it on my computer): Voting has not yet started. Submit your entries and check back later to submit your vote.

I'm now experiencing the same issue as Kiki_Kjaer.

Same as Gymnast & Kiki...just empty boxes in POTW 44 & 45. October POTM the old style voted fine.

Please bring back the old system, I don't like this one - sorry.

All of them are active, I checked. Currently there is no way for us to catch up since it takes 1-2 hours to create and submit the code for each week.
This is the fastest I can come up with for the POTW. Steve has been away and won't be returning until next week. I can create code, but have no access to submit it.

When you first look at the link to each category, it will show 0 for each photo. Once you vote, then all counts show up

We're not seeing the same thing. You're logged in as an Administrator. For the rest of us, we're not seeing any images. All we see is this message: "Voting has not yet started. Submit your entries and check back later to submit your vote."
