Is there any way to maybe start a stickied poll and advertise it in the Naruto/Bleach/One Piece sections when it's that time of the week?
I think it would be more effective to involve those who. . . aren't involved. . .
I agree with drastic measures Rav.
Oh yeah...congrats to ydoc, arisato-kun and guy. Good job~
Are people who aren't participating in the actual contest voting?
It should be checked if anyone outside the contest (aside from the section mods maybe) voted. . . If the seven people that voted were all participants in the contest, then it's clear the voting period needs more exposure. . . and what better time to advertise than during the releases of the big three shonen series. . .
I'm suggesting just some sort of reminder (stickied locked thread headlining the popular sections) to people that they can vote. . . and by doing it in the Naruto/Bleach/One Piece sections during their busiest time frames, we're inviting the masses who may not have known about these contests. . . More potential participants wouldn't hurt. . .
If you can talk either the individual mods of those sections or a global to sticky something completely unrelated in a particular section then all the more power to you. However it is highly unlikely.
Well maybe if Rav would come on IRC I would vote. Or if I'd been around when/if Imotochan asked. ^_^'
I'd like to point out that without votes, there can't be any winners, which defeats the purpose of a competition. When it defeats the purpose of the competition, there is no point to the competition. Hence, no competition.
In other words, there might be no more DotM.
