So, In the original arenas, which I am currently participating, I have a very low rating. I'm in the upper 2's and I'm in 36th. Normally, I don't see myself being ranked until I hit the low 4's

Are people just downvoting for the hell of it? I shouldn't even be ranking with a score that low.

Input.

Seems so, really : /
Yeah, my original entry is getting a lot of one's it seems. I guess the idea is that if they aren't getting voted up then they'll vote everyone down.

It says in a sticky there's a thing in place to make a person's ratings count for less if all they do is downvote, but I'm not so sure it's working that well. =o

I believe I gave you a 4.

But yeah, I'm not sure it's working at all.

Thanks pal! :'D
I don't know why =/
The only reason I would give an avatar less then a three is if it literally sucked.

Some just hate the fact that there is someone with a better looking avatar than them.

Happens every week at the beginning of the week, downvoting does that. Then as it nears the end of the week you'll noticed it starts to even out.

Well that's a relief to hear, I'm kind of new in the arenas and I was starting to lose hope on my entry.

I feel the arenas are going s#!t anyways. People just don't make good avatars as they used to, or, people are tired of seeing a theme that they downvote regardless of how good it is.

You are in the 2. something range AND placing with a thirty something? That is the worst I have heard it happen as.

I would bump up my thread in the SF, but a couple of weeks ago when I went to look for it, it was no where to be found as though it was deleted or moved without even a PM telling me so. neutral


Hide your face so the world will never find you.


              I think people judge too much on the theme chosen --- rather than the actual avatar composition itself.
