awesome, awesome stuff everyone!

From my count we have 10 contestants so there will be 10 prizes.

Now how should we vote? My thinking is to have everyone rate the dios from 1 (best) to 10. The person with the fewest points gets to pick a prize first and then so on.

Maybe we should have the contestants vote too? (obviously not for their own submission).

I am open to other suggestions as well and will list the 10 prizes on Monday (you guys know 2 of them so far).

Might be easier if folks voted for their "top 3", and then you distributed the rest of the prizes as you see fit - just concerned about someone feeling down about receiving a low ranking......

And please - NO VOTES FOR JJ (not that I would have earned any  :rollfloorlaffsmiley:  ), mine was just for fun - the prizes are for everyone else.  :u:

I could see a "top 3" or "top 5" voting system working with Sanjai's reverse points system, 3pts for 1st/1pt for 3rd, and then as you said the remainder decided by Sanjai.  The voting could be kept anonymous by having people PM Sanjai with their votes and then noting "PM sent" or "Votes submitted" within the thread.  I would have a hard time believing anyone here would question Sanjai's honesty in tallying the votes.

Stop underplaying your dio JJ, personally I think it's great!  I think everyone that submitted did an awesome job and it's cool seeing everyone's dedication to the hobby.

Thank you :) We had a lot of laughs getting the pic as close as possible.

A vote by PM seems appropriate. I would simply list these by order (#1 would go first on the list, #2 second, etc. etc.). Keep it simple. The best part is already over and done (the best part IMO was to work on these dioramas!!  :) )

Else, it could also be put on the Snowtroopers.ca Facebook page, however I don't know if there's enough visibility on this page...

Okay, thinking about it, I agree with Thirdfloor, you would need a points system to ease up the process. I don't know however who would be allowed to vote. Thought it was interesting that the contestants not be allowed to vote (I personally hate voting LOL), but I don't know if they'd be enough troopers to vote in this case...

Or it could be a small 3-4 people jury formed among the rest of the troopers, with Sanjai presiding the process and having the final say in the selection, based on certain criteria. It would also be perfectly ok IMHO.  As long as I don't have to run 100 meters or swim for hours like an athlete, I don't mind. LOL :)

What has been done in the past contests?

There seems to be only about 11 people in the mix of things here or who have shown interest in this...the 10 people who submitted something and Sanjai.  How about that's our jury right there, with the idea that you can't vote for your own work. You can base it on whatever points system you then want and go from there.

Anyways, just an idea!

No one said you can't vote, on the contrary, it would make sense to have everyone on Snowtroopers vote. Well, at least to me, this is our "community", so I'd say every active forum member would be allowed to vote if they want to. :-)

the last one we did had a small "jury" of 3 or so people.

My concern is that we won't have many non-contestants wanting to vote.

So, let's see how many lurkers on here would be willing to participate. If you weren't a contest and are willing to vote please let me know on here. I will give it until Tuesday morning to see how many names we get.

Good to be back!

I will post the 10 prizes in the next day or two. Then we can figure out the voting. If anyone else would like to vote (who wasn't a contestant) please let me know!
