I couldn't use that link, either.  I had to go in the back way $%#Ninj2...

Try [this registration link].  Register (it takes almost literally 10 seconds), then it'll tell you to log in, then I think you'll get to where you need to go.

I already have a picture up to test it ;).

P.S. For future reference, that's how my middle name is spelled %wrd

<EDIT> LOL...if you highlight the page that you reach by clicking on the link star.torturer provided, you'll see a hidden link...click on that, and you'll see the homepage.

Your number is 938, but it also didnt work on Masochists registration...

now there is a current score. next for no voting from competitors, (and maybe previous voters) !

I vote yes.
The most astounding and unique aspect of the human race is our fervent application of our ingenuity to kill each other, thus completely defying the near-universally proven fact that the ultimate goal of a member of a species is to ensure the survival of the species.

Okay, I know that this might be an awkward suggestion and may ask a lot from members... but after a while it will become second nature if considered and implemented, no? :P

I was thinking that you pin to the top of the page in the SC4 Picture Competition Thread, the following code that can be copied and pasted to make the voting more 'neat' and less confusing... (Yeah, I realise that's saying much. :P )

But if you'd encourage voters to use a table in this format:

Code: [Select]
[tabular type=2]
[row][head][b]Name of Contestant[/b][/head][head][b]Votes Cast For[/b][/head][/row]
[row][data][name contestant 1][/data][data][number of votes for contestant 1][/data][/row]
[row][data][name contestant 2][/data][data][number of votes for contestant 2[/data][/row]
[/tabular]

Looking like this:

[tabular type=2]
[row][head]Name of Contestant[/head][head]Votes Cast For[/head][/row]
[row][data][name contestant 1][/data][data][number of votes for contestant 1][/data][/row]
[row][data][name contestant 2][/data][data][number of votes for contestant 2][/data][/row]
[/tabular]

Benefits
  • Makes voting more 'neat'
  • Structures voting better
  • Teaches people how to use tables :P

So, the powers that be put the rough format at the top of the thread and voters can even just quote the post immediately above and adjust accordingly.

All in favour...? lol

Marius that is a fantastic idea there!!! I love it and I think it would be also well implemented....

[tabular type=2]
[row][head]good idea or bad idea[/head][head]Votes Cast For the Idea[/head][/row]
[row][data]Good[/data][data][4][/data][/row]
[row][data]Bad[/data][data][0.][/data][/row]
[/tabular]

while I was messing around with the table I noticed it doesnt record just 0 so to have the 0 displayed you would have to go with 0.

Yay! LOL

I should perhaps add that this should not necessarily be made compulsory - at least I don't think so anyway!

But! Thanks for the support!  $%Grinno$%

Re: Photo Contest Suggestion Box: Best SC4 Picture Ever
« Reply #77 on: September 16, 2008, 04:44:20 PM »
What I'd like to see is a "Best SC4 Picture Ever" contest in which people vote among the various pictures in the HoF to gradually narrow down the choices one by one until there are two left and then people vote for one of those and the person who made the Best Picture gets a new CML or something as a reward. (And maybe karma...)

This would be pretty much the plain ol' SC4 Best Pictures Contest but it would run standard bracket style - pairs duke it out at the beginning, and then one in each pair wins or loses. Then you have half the pictures left and they duke it out, and then half of them remain after the voting and the process repeats until there is one left which is the winner.

Hey Nerdly I think that is allready done at least once and that was last year around SC4D anniversary...  But I think it was off of the entries that never made it to the HOF....  I do agree that a show down with the HOFfers would be fantastic!!!!
