Would be different if there were hundreds of votes but with so few votes the difference between 1st and 2nd could be one vote
  i think if we had 3 votes each it would counteract that  ;)

I don't mind. I just thought that was the agreement last month.

Looks like we have a leading runner.

The only problem with voting for yourself is that if only the people who entered the competition voted, then everyone would only have one vote each :D

There are two very good photos there and it was hard to choose between them. I do think that there could be a gentlemans agreement that entrants do not vote, at all. Too late for this time but for the next time it could be included in the terms and conditions - although it's impossible to enforce.

I think less rules is best, add a little anarchy to lifes dull, rule based, sheep like existance.   And thats not an attack on people who have posted about more rules   :)

I bet Rodney Connor wishes he and 4 friends had voted for him last year  ;)

Isn't odd how we are discussing voting on the week of an election; weird  :o

I agree it is all a bit of fun, a place for us to show off our photos but as there is a prize to play for maybe some tighter rules might help. We could vote on it  :D

Lol, good point and interesting parallel.

So, i suggest, reforming the best photo competition, so the winner is chosen randomly, that way everyone has a fair chance, regardless of ability !   ;D

The prize is trivial, so, lets not worry about.that, it was about.the kudos i would say.

What about refining it to say, like in cheesy voice ovet style, the only rule is .. There are no rules...

AV system anyone?  If D'hont is the same thing I'll delete this and just quote LandyLiam along with a smiley.

You can't stop the entrants voting, the number of votes will be too low.  No voting for oneself though, that was definately the consensus last time it was discussed.  For those who have already done so, please tell me which is yours so I can register my protest vote ;) 

I didn't enter either, knew it wasn't going to be one I could attempt.  I did briefly court the idea of taking a picture of Action Man up the Mournes with a little back pack on, but Jonno told me how many extra grammes that would be in my rucksack, so I binned the idea :P
