    You are correct it needs to be changed but that would not help for this contest and since the problem wasn't discovered in time we had to go with what we had to work with. It would be much easier for all the entries to have been listed in a poll and it would be less work for Sumosmoke as well but as was said it just couldn't be done and something can't be fixed or adjusted until it's discovered

    Piney no problem. I'm not laying blame on anyone including myself.[​IMG]

    Its going to take a bit to work the kinks out of the new system and find all the little quirks. We will get the size of the polls taken care of and move on and hopefully get even more members involved in the Throwdowns.

    Just so everyone knows.. I turned in a ticket last week to have the number of poll options changed. We obviously need to have a limit to the number of options but 10 is not the right number. I put in a request to bump it up to 20. I am not sure how long this will take but it will be done.

    We did  not even notice this problem until this came up.. now that it did, change is happening.

    I apologize for not catching this sooner but I suppose that is just par for the course.. you learn as you go.[​IMG]

    This is sumosmoke's first month as Events Coordinator and also the first month for two of the Judges.  Let's give them a chance to get squared away, what do you say. 

    As with all new software you are going to experience some glitch you hadn't counted on.  That is something none of us on the Events Committee has any control of.

    This is the start of bigger and better contests so please be patient.  We have found several things already that have been corrected on the posting of the entries and I am sure as time goes on we will find and correct more problems...

    Those of you who dropped out it would have been a lot better if you had just PMed one of the members of the Event Committee with your complaints and given us a chance to act any complaints you have before disqualifying yourselves.

    I would like to thank sumosmoke fro taking this on, I can guess it is a bit of work and hassle and the pay is less then low.

    Warren, and others, thank you for all of the support. We'll work on the kinks on the back end, but for now, let's see some more votes!!

    Excellent entries by those that remain eligible for prizes as the the winner of one of the two categories. We're halfway through the voting period, hope to see more people support their favorite entry!

    Hats off to Sumosmoke!

    She did her best in producing a 12 entry throwdown on a platform that would only allow 10 entries. Hopefully that will be cleared up by next month. Can't wait to show mine. Couldn't find anything on the web like it.

    Will will definitely have a solution for the July Throwdown, regarding the poll entries. It was sad to see people pull out because of it, but hopefully they'll be back.

    I will post the winners this afternoon by 5pm EST.
