Nice work by all, but seriously, why does the Leopold have 2x the votes than it's nearest challenger?

IMHO, these "contests" are hacked by BS modelers or at worst the "winners" are pre picked before votes are cast.

IMHO?...really?....It's your opinion surely, but not very humble I must say. Where's your proof? Do you have anything to back up these allegations or are you just spouting off sour grapes?

WTF are you on about!?

Yes it's a conspiracy, everyone but you gets together and decide who the winner will be before the images get uploaded.

Pretty brazen for a new guy, I suggest you read more and write less.

Rick, Bob.....Do NOT read into this BS....not worth it. Gut instincts is "Noob" and/or "Troll." I think the latter....but that's an opinion.

I will comment on his statement that there were twice the votes for the Leopard (at the time of his post): when one is not logged in....it shows the number of votes posted so far for each entry. When logged in, it doesn't. This MUST be changed! There is no reason for votes to be shown...NONE!

I could care less if entry 1 had 10 and entry 2 had 5....I'll vote for the one I like the most. Why allow the possibility of Lemmings? Remove that possibility.

I totally agree, the vote count is not required to be shown.

As suggested by many in the "what should be changed" topic of last month. +1 from my side on this issue.

Yes, remove the vote count from view. It's not necessary and shouldn't be revealed until the winners are announced. In the meantime, I just don't look at the vote count. I vote for what I like and not what everyone else voted for.

Well, calling the Leopard a "Leopold" shows a lot about him, I think.

And maybe it would be better not to show the vote count so no one can claim that it might affect people's opinions in any way.

Lemming syndrome:

"A psychological quasi-condition in which the afflicted person becomes subject to the whims of a portion of popular culture, and bends his/her entire persona to conform to the norms dictated by the media moguls in charge of said trend."

A typo is when you press on the "s" instead of the "a" for example, seeing as it's right next to it on the keyboard. But pressing on the "O" and "L" instead of the of the "A" and "R"? I don't know about that.
