CONTEST ENTRIES NOW DISPLAY RANDOMLY IN GALLERY

post #1 of 39
Thread Starter 
Jackie and I decided to implement a randomizer on the cake contest gallery display.

We decided to do this because we noticed that the first page always seemed to get the most votes, so it became an unfair advantage to be displayed on page one.

So what happens now is that when you go to the gallery, the server generates a random order. The pictures will stay in place as long as you remain in the gallery.

If you only vote on part of the cakes, and then leave cake central, there will be a different order when you return.

We have noticed that this change has dramatically improved the voting distribution resulting in a more fair opportunity for all the entries to be judged.

This is a great idea! I'm glad to hear it.

OK, this explains what was happening at 3:30 this morning when I went in to finish voting. I think it is a great idea, was just a bit confused, while being frustrated that I couldn't sleep.

Excellent idea! I always wondered when would be the best time to enter a pic to get a lot of people to look at it. You guys are so smart!!!

they should only randomize for each user once per 24 hours.

So if you come back multiple times in the same day, the order will stay the same.
