Update: A member has raised concerns that the voting aspect of this competition is open to cheating and as a result won’t be entering, and doesn’t think many others will enter either.

I just want to reassure everyone that I will be able to verify votes are placed by an active member based on their user history and IP address etc. As explained briefly above, the vote for this competition will be via the comments. I was going to include more specific rules with regards to the vote once the vote has opened, but please be assured I have systems in place to prevent abuse of this and/or multiple votes by one person.

The reason I included the voting aspect is that it increases page views of the site which helps with generating ad revenue. If I just announce a winner myself, I lose 3 days where people might visit the site to vote or see who’s in the lead. I was also recently (wrongly) accused of manually picking a winner myself, so I wanted to eliminate any presumptions of bias!

The recent pet competition, which involved voting, was run fairly and transparently with each registered member getting one vote. No one seemed to be put off by the voting aspect and there were over a hundred entries in the end. Please do raise any further concerns with me; it would be a real shame if no one ends up entering!

Just realised I’ve read the competition wrong. I thought you had to do all 3 of those things which was impossible for me, doh! Better get to the drawing board quickly then lol.

I do have a problem with voting comps on Facebook, as some people have an unfair advantage if they have thousands of friends, and others have no chance if they have just a few friends. Also there’s a lot of vote buying goes off…
On here though, the one vote per person seems fair enough as I doubt there is a large gang of friends, and especially if the final entries are displayed in some sort of anonymous way if that were possible!
