Challenges
Can anyone explain how you can get so many points on your page with comments, the then when the challenge votes come up, very low voting. Just a thought! Charlotte

The problem is (I think) that everyone who votes on your home page doesn't vote in the challenges unfortunately.

Guess something not right, hard to believe you get so many comments and votes, then when it comes to challenge votes, very low. I only seem to get around to commenting and voting on all the ones that are in the challenges I join, but I never fail to give the challenge votes.

This has always been a problem. Many members don't go over to challenges at all - nothing much we can do about it. I usually wait until a challenge is nearly finishing and then I speed vote, that way you don't miss later pages.

Thanks Joce, guess that could be a good idea. Did you ever get your IPad where you could view pages?

It comes and goes Charlotte. I sometimes find if you ask for votes in your description you get a few more in a challenge but I don't like doing that. We just have to grin and bear it. :)

I guess it's also all in the eye of the beholder. I know when I vote I speed vote and don't look at who did the page. But I do mention that it's for the XXX "xxx Challenge" first so people who want to can vote.

I only recently started to check out the forum. and tonight felt I had to put in my 2 cents but I feel the same way that Charlotte does, and have seen it happen to my pages many times. I too find it simpler to speed vote on the challenges, then go back and vote on the home pages, I do wish there was some way it could be tied together, maybe someone at SBF could try to work it out, if they read these posts.

Guys, could you all check and see if you see my challenge http://www.scrapbookflair.com/challenges/ILLUSTRATION_FOR_HOPE_IS
It started on 7 21st but no one has entered, what makes me wonder is I see it on my challenge page but underneath is a tiny red box, and it says up top this is private. I do not know what happened because I have done many challenges in the past and this never happened!!!!! Help!
I just cannot believe that no one wanted to join the challenge?

simsage,

I asked support to make your challenge a public challenge. Most likely, you accidently hit the button to make it private when you set up your challenge. You can make changes until your challenge starts. Once your challenge starts, you have to contact support to make any changes.

Rae Ann says:
Also the reason that challenge voting is unique and not tied to the voting on the individual pages is because the challenges have requirements and the voting should correlate with how well the scrapbook meets the requirements. Many members scroll through the new scrapbooks to vote in the public galleries. However, some members just don't make it to the challenges to vote. The views are the page views. Members may or may not be viewing the page in the challenge. Many members view the pages in the many public galleries rather than the challenges.

I agree with Charlotte (LadynRed_44)and it's not the first time I mention that. Yes, people don't necessary vote on challenges but and here it's my personal opinion, it's a question of popularity on the site too and probably it's normal. It's a little frustrating but it will not stop me to scrap because it is a passion.

I agree with Charlotte AND Micheline, especially on the popularity part and also how many friends one has. Problem is all of ones friends might be competing in the challenge and everyone wants to win but that's not the honest or upright way to do it. A page should be voted on the merit of the design not who made it. There's my two cents.

if you have a lot of scraps, it sometimes takes a little longer for them all to come up so you can check the box below the scrap you want to enter in the challenge, then sometimes a little longer before the button appears so you can post the scrap you checked...though I haven't really experienced a terrible slow down here, there are some members who have mentioned that it sometimes take a very long time for a page to load
