Wow, now re-reading my post really confused even myself..
1) As I've said, and I'm sticking with it,
a) I'm not here for glory (p.s. how on Earth did I get level 9
), so I don't reeeally mind which place my entry takes - I have one that finished last, but... I'm tremendously proud of myself and with it, cuz it was smth I made all by myself from scratch, with a pen tool and a brush, using a mouse
b) I don't care for vp either, I just want to participate in choosing the best of the best, cuz it's fun - and I can't
One member, one vote, done.
2) I've given 10%, I've given 100% - and damn I'm proud of it!
No matter the system, I would've continued voting whatever I felt best. ...if only I had that opportunity, but my voice is zero.
3) Higher voting power = more "weight" is not fair to those of us who really do care about the place but do not have the opportunity to get vp by voting this much. Yep, it's better to have roughly the same number of votes for each entry, but on the other hand - for some entries I personally don't want to vote neither high nor low, prefer to give comments to help
4) Why old member don't have vp by default - to be honest I must've been too naive, that never even crossed my mind. So yep, there is logic not to have vp on basis of "I've been around much, done a lot" if those things are really happening..
But if I had to choose wether to allow more vp to those who have more time to spend voting or just to let it be "organic" with one member having one vote, I'd go for the second, for it does seem to be the lesser evil.
Oh it's gotten too late to write smth which is not
So my position is above. But, thanks to not-telling-who I will give this system a go, vote in one or if I can two contests for every single entry and see what, if anything happens
Will tell you next week how it went
