I was browsing some challenges and was absolutely stunned at some of the images that won, now firstly, I didn’t enter these particular ones, and as it would most likely be I wouldn’t have a chance against some of the fabulous works I saw..
However, it is no doubt blatantly obvious that the winning image must have sought votes, why can’t people just allow their image to win on it’s own merit? Lets face it, if you feel you have to seek votes then it really mustn’t be that good even to you!
That is so unfair and unjust and for Pete’s sakes it is just a bloody fun challenge!
Challenge meaning just that! You challenge your work against other artists works and if the public vote on yours then so beit, but for crying out loud I think it is high time to grow some maturity and just leave the votes up to the individuals who want to vote and aren’t asked to vote..
Honestly, if someone messaged me and asked me to vote for their work on RB I’d report them! So nobody try it!
Some of the crap I’ve seen didn’t even sustain real effort compared to the other entries.. so I may be doing a Pauline Hanson by speaking out perhaps for what many are already thinking but, well, at least you know where I stand on this issue.
Anyway that’s my 2 cents worth.
