    As folks can see it is now easy to submit your videos to a contest as well as vote on one.

    The voting setup as follows is one person = one vote.

    Would anyone prefer it work differently?

    That seems to work fine. Thats how a good system would work.

    Yea, I don’t have a problem with that.

    Yup, thumbs up from me.

    There have been a variety of different judging methods used over the years. The ones that ended up being used most often was to have three or four judges (members of the community) judge the films but doing it that way meant that it was easy for things to drag on if a judge got stuck or dropped out of the loop.

    Email votes tabulated by the organisers worked well, because the human element made it easier to weed out fake / repeated votes.

    With a “one person, one vote” system, it should (theoretically) work quite easily and be effective. The downside is with people with multiple accounts but if enough members of the community vote, then such behaviour would not affect the outcome.

    As I said in another thread, I’d like to see judges and a public vote for big contests, but I don’t mind having only a public vote for these smaller contests.
