we are 5 paricipant post there work .why manager not start voting . i agree with the vankizzle remarkneed minimum 3 participants for 1 winner
need minimum 5 participants for 2 winners
need minimum 7 participants for 3 winners .if you have not intersting in atc competiton colse the section.we will not take participation in ATC why we waist our time?
yeongshing ADMIN :Hi, regarding your concern, you may see my reply in the following link: http://community.mobile9.com/group/?gid=353&sid=139758
I think that with 3 participants can also vote for 1 winner
need minimum 3 participants for 1 winner
need minimum 5 participants for 2 winners
need minimum 7 participants for 3 winners
yeongshing ADMIN :Hi, thanks for your suggestion. "3 participants for 1 winner" would be too few to make a good winner quality. Due to the lack of ATC participants, we will take "5 participants for 2 winners" into consideration. IF there is any change, will announce in ATC 24 Final Entry Thread.
yeongshing ADMIN :One more thing, I believe you already know about this but I would like to remind that although ATC23 did not have voting, participants will still receive Participation point in Achievement as a token of credit.
yeongshing ADMIN :@imsagi, do you mind share me the names of themers via *PM in forum*? I invited some themers (you might not see them all) but i think you might know more Themers than me. So when i get new names, I will try to invite them.
Open for voting is not a problem. If think another perspective, it might be a good idea to know how much points a participants' entry worth, but if too little entries like 1~5, giving out Winner Trophies does not seems to make much sense to me. All contests online and offline have their own rules and even good small contests required at least double or triple of participants amount out of the number of trophies/prizes that are going to give out.
yeongshing ADMIN :@warda29, "what do you mean our work is not good and qulity" -> I think there is misunderstanding somewhere, can you tell which of my comments that you are referring to?
and i just wanted to be clear about this, do you speak for yourself or do you represent other people as well so you speak on behalf of them?
yeongshing ADMIN :Let me explain another way with example.
"it might be a good idea to know how much points a participants' entry worth"
-> It's like rating, people will rate for your works. For example, IF there are grades like A(very good), B(good), C(not so good), D(poor) to give a design work, there will be specific points collection that make your work is grade A or B or C.
Maybe lets say, 8~10 points is Grade A, 5~7 points is Grade B.... and have 2 works Grade A, but these 2 works have different points even if they are in Grade A, maybe one is 8 points and another one is 10 points, so even both is grade A, 10 points work is still better than 8 points work. Do you agree?
This is just an example, hope this will explain better. It's like Grade=Level, Points=details that let you know the exact different.
yeongshing ADMIN :"but if too little entries like 1~5, giving out Winner Trophies does not seems to make much sense to me."
-> We did some discussion and study on this with a group of people and other resources. Conclusion is trophies are given as a reward and honour of very good work and better than others when compare, if too few entries, there are less to compare in terms of poor, not so good, good, better and best, so if trophies are under this condition(when entries are too few), then the trophy does not give one very meaningful honour.
all participate only for the badges
and users will not participate on all contest on m9
i agree with vankizzle
yeongshing ADMIN :I admit vankizzle's point is true for some people, but also not true for some other people. Just like warda you have said people have different mind. Not everyone thinks the same meaning for contest and badges. That's why we have two types of badges for contests.
Winner = Contest Sage Badge
Participants (non-winner) = Contender Badge
