Yeah, it's hard to get decent votes these days. This is the first time in a few weeks that the winners have been okay. But people get their friends to down vote the competition and up vote themselves. It's part of what is going on.


Which sucks for the people who put in amazing avatars and is totally unfair.

Yeah, I can't tell you how many amazing entries I've come across that just don't make it. And it's like really? >> And people always find little things to nitpick about.

I'm all about giving my opinion if something doesn't feel right, but it doesn't make me vote a lower score. If the avi is a 4 to me, its a four, if its a five, its a five. Just because one thing seems off doesn't mean it's a 1..

Same here, just cause of one little detail or even that hideous goo, doesn't mean the avatar gets a five.

One thing I noticed is this:

Got expensive contacts, wigs, etc? High vote.
Lots of friends? High vote.

Basically, it's lot of friends and lots of expensive as ******** stuff on that gets a placer.

Yeah, the arena has definitely changed for the worse. I've heard of people that just 1 everyone because they're bored. neutral
i may be a different case but ...

i don't 1 everyone because i'm bored.
i 1 every absolutely crappy entry because i'm bored and i want the good entries to have a better lead.

The people I'm talking about 1 the good entries to though.
But yeah, if I see a really crappy avi after voting for a good one I 1/2 it.

Oh I know..I missed simpler days where if it looked good it got good rates, not crazy expensive items getting you rates or lots of friends. I know a couple of people who have amazing avi's and they seem to like mine but I'm not actually friends with most people in the arena nor do I get friends to go voting.

Remove the link, you're not allowed to do that here.

The fact is, the arenas are nothing more then a popularity contest, hence moronic avatars from Chatterbox regs placing.

Oh, sorry, I forgot, I wasn't asking for votes, I just wasn't thinking >_<
I know, I see those threads all the times on CB, it's dumb.

If Gaia removed the direct link stuff then it would probably stop happening as much.
