votes on challenges
I don't want to offend anyone but I just give my opinion about votes on challenges and this morning I'm frustrated.
I think people (in general) don't vote for the member's work but for their friends.
I don't said they don't make a good work but sometimes the votes are not given for the real work. A chance that there the COC!
I love the SBF family but I hate the injustices.

I am a bit upset about this! I never look to see who has done a page before I vote (when a person who has done page is hidden), and when chosing my COC I vote on merit and certainly NOT on whether that person is my friend or not. I think the voting on this site is a lot fairer than most!

Oh Val, I didn't want to offense you about your challenge that you have owned and any owner. If it seems that, I'm sorry. I just said that I have a lot of points when my pages are not in the challenge and the votes are not really there when I put my pages in it.
And why I said one chance there is COC, the owner of the challenge vote on merit or with the best that he wanted.

I always speed vote near the end of a challenge and as the maker isn't shown I go by whether the requirements have been met or not. Sorry to say that sometimes my votes are low but deserving pages get 10. I would just like to see more people voting in challenges even if not entered. Oh and I don't much care for people who have friends as members jut to vote for them. Sorry!!!!

I didn't want a war from here, I just said my opinion and how I feel about that. You don't have explain anything and the people involved will not come here to discuss the matter anyway.
People act as they want and I don't pretend to change anything here.
I'm not accusing any owner of any challenge, it's not the problem.
Sorry for the brouhaha

And last word because I don't want any war, if I don't feel well in the challenges it is for me not to join it simply.

I do agree with what you're saying, but I can honestly say when I vote, I do it by speed voting. If you hover over the page, unfortunately, you can see who did it, but my votes are purely on the quality of the page.

I'm glad I read this. It reminded me to go and check out all the challenges and vote. I've been a SBF member for a couple of years but just now actually participating regularly. Believe it or not I didn't know anything about the community and challenges, I though it was all about scrapping and sharing your pages on your own page (lol!) I'm just now getting really inspired to try and make a beautiful page and ones that don't have traditional photos in it. It's hard work and I'm finding it's really fun.
I'm also glad you shared your opinion. It's good to speak out, and also good to hear about it. Give you a chance to think about all of the hard work that everyone puts in to their pages. Wishing you a beautiful day. Are we friends on here? If not we should be :) xoxo

Friends- definitely. Fun - definitely. Challenges - exactly that - a challenge, to meet requirements and have fun. It's nice to win but does it really matter. There are so many talented people on here and it's a pleasure to see their work. I'm so glad that members like Michelley enjoy and learn. Happy scrapping everyone.
