    I think it would be interesting to ask people: what motivates you to take and submit photos to the POTM?

    I've always thought it was the motivation of wanting to get on the Hall of Fame where your pitcher would be on display for all to see.

    In what way does the hall of fame have greater appeal than any thread that offers photos "for all to see"? In my mind, that would be an artificial distinction.

    Lets try it out.

    I have added TF poll to the July voting thread: http://www.terraforums.com/forums/sh...-and-voting%29


    Not sure how this will go on the "official" results (maybe they can be put as a July #2 in the hall of fame??)... But for fun, lets revote for July using TF poll... Please vote for your favorite 3, you can vote less.... but then your second and third favorite may not make the top! You have 5 days, go!

    Haven't seen the results of July's contest, but unless I'm dead last again I think "Anonymous" was referring more to that contest a couple of months ago. We all know the one..
    I think last month and the month before turned out pretty fair considering the competition.

    The whole point was:
    1. Why not just use a TF poll so we don't even have to worry about swayed votes?
    2. I know we already voted on the voting process, but that was a confusing 250 question poll. This thread was focused on just the ONE question that actually mattered to me. And no, it wasn't the 6 month rule.

    I actually liked using the TF poll more, it was nice to be able to just scroll down and see the entries again before making my choices.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    I'm okay with it, though generally not being able to rate them from top to bottom and assign first, second, third and so on leads to another kind of skew - one where people vote for their own entries.

    No one way is perfect but why not give it a shot?

    I agree that I miss not being able to rank them, but I still prefer the TF poll over the other. If keeping the voting inhouse could remove or minimize any potential tampering, I see no reason not to.
    Does the poll allow someone to choose more than 3 entries? If so, that may be a way people could potentially tamper with the results.
