So,, I submitted my entry at the arena last week, which voting phase has just ended,,
and since then I keep on monitoring my entry's rank...
2 minutes before the voting closed,, my entry as on the 10th rank,, which delighted me, cause even though I didn't win but I still placed on the big ten.... that was what I thought...

few seconds before it closed, it still said I was on the 10th rank... with the average rates 3.99

But when the vote closed,, I can't see my entry among the top 10,, while the 9th and the 10th ranks has the same amount of average rates 3.99 and when I checked I also got 3.99 average!
But why I didn't place on the top 10?
Why do they got to get 9-10th rank while I don't even placed at all?



It's not that I'm angry... well, a bit furious actually... I'm just really disappointed with the result...
if I had less average than the last rank and I don't make it on top, then I would understand
but the fact is I have the same average as the last rank,,
any other people experienced this before?

I think it may also have to do with the number of voters but I'm sure someone else will have a better idea then I do!

I'm not sure what happened. I was sure I would not place as mine was rank 14 at 3.99. I also think it has something to do with the number of votes. At the last minute I got a message saying I ranked. sweatdrop

In my eyes we all shared 9th

It seems to me like it would have gone down to the decimal?

Ah, I remember your entry,, it is one of the pokemon thingie right? the one on the stage! Congratulations, anyway!

I actually was on the 14th rank since 1 hour before the vote closed. So I keep sending messages to my friends to vote for me. And suddenly it's escalated to 10th rank minute before the votes closed. and it keep on the 10th rank until it closed~ I think what disappoint me most is because the system told me that I placed but the reality said I don't..

Wow! thanks for the picture!

A rough estimate of the scores raw scores based on those numbers...

9th: 3.985
10th: 3.986
11th: 3.988

Which doesn't really make sense.

that's also possibility... but I don't think it really is since until the moment before the votes closed I still on the 10th rank...

Score * Number of votes received = raw score. It'll be a decimal, and but I haven't quiet figured out whether you round up or down, or to the nearest number.

Yeah just simple screen shots of our votes.
I was rank 7 around 6pm Mountain time and when I checked it again before voting closed it was at rank 14.

I remember reading somewhere (can't remember where) that voting "closes" well before turn over. So for the last little bit when the scores and ranks are going up and down, it doesn't mean anything,

if that's the case, why don't the site mods told the contestant before?
wouldn't it be a 'scam',, for deceiving the voters that their votes counts?
I purposely ask my friends to vote near the closing date,, in case of the downvoters influx...
