I find that half-gold one interesting...given how strident she was yesterday. Huh. I am glad to see Clarion placed, though! I rather dislike the color themes in Runway but I like that particular entry.
Thank you! It's from one of those sites you can find free, pre-made layouts on. cat_3nodding
The problem is that community is very insular and convinced of its own right-ness, so they're unlikely to accept that they are mistaken about things. cat_rolleyes As far as I've seen, there have been a couple big, proper cheaters, and the rest have been people whose avatars they just do not like. (I honestly find that forum's taste in avatars rather sub-par most of the time too. So feeling's mutual, I guess.) In the case of Sal and the OC Runway the other day which stirred up this conversation, the accusations were based solely on that particular person's finding the avatar not to their taste. Which must mean...CHEATING! Except that's not the case. It appears there is another person who is winning by having a different account vote for them repeatedly, but as of now, that is not against the rules (unless it can be proven to be her mule account, and then it's a punishable offense). Until Gaia decides they want to properly fix the voting system in a more fair way, that's going to happen. Either she'll tire of it, or Gaia will tweak the Runway voting code and rules again to even things out.
I'm rather burnt out on the whole thing. I have way more to be indignant about right now. cat_lol
I avoid talking in the Runway forum about this, but that very topic (assumptions of cheating) is why I mostly avoid that place. It's really mean-spirited to assume that people are cheating just because you do not care for their avatars. I know there have been a few known cheats, but the vast majority of people accused haven't been doing anything. It's really frustrating to have to see that every single day with one or more of the Runways.
