Default Does this seem fishy to you? ...

I was looking at the entries for that Fire Songbird contest in the Share Center.
If you go look at the top viewed images, the first two seem REALLY fishy to me...

First off, they both have 7000-9000 votes. The third highest views have only 1700, whereas the first has 7635 votes, and the second has a whopping 8332.

The rest of the pictures usually have 50 or so.
Something else I noted was that the first picture has a rating of 9.08 and the second 9.13.
Most images don't get past 5 or 6 with their 50 or even 500 votes.
But with 8000 and an exceptionally high rating? They'd have to have a LOT of 10s...

At first, when it was at a rating of 7 or so and only 3000-4000 votes for those images, I thought yeah, they must be popular.
But this is nuts, in comparison to what the other pictures are getting.
Does it seem fishy to you?

Yes Amygirl it's very fishy, and not fair especially since they changed the contest rules from highest rated to highest # of votes. At least they became aware of all the votes of 1 on some really nice pictures.

What bugged me was on the parent club, webbimom won four, that's not fair, but I can respect these winners because the contest was where your pets sleep, not to jsut show off your pets, and they only entered once, not fifty times like certain people.

Wow, that's a good point, I didn't even notice it was where they sleep. I was one of those who propped my up like they were ready for family fun. I'll have to pay attention next time.

I believe the contest finished, as they tab no longer specifies 'contest'.
According to the original announcement, the contest was to "share your favourite Webkinz pics!" and there was no apparent limit to entering.

Would I be right in assuming that your picture was 'Snuggled Up'?

No, when i tried to make a webkinz newz account, my name was already taken, so i had to choose something else, I did try to enter the contest though, however it apprently "Didn't fit the contest rules and guidelines" soI gave up and voted for what I thought was the best, but yes I have been asked many times before if that is mine.

Ah, OK.
I hate when that happens (both with username taken and not fitting contest rules/criteria)
