    The 4 best aren't always just the 4 best and tiebreakers can easily be bypassed with extra rule [haven't been done before] people who have same vote are voted in thread by people again if they are fighting over top 3 position and stuff.

    @bold - see there's the problem.That way you create more problems since probs entries which needed that vote which you should give it,you gave it to someone just to make them happy.Votes are not something to give feedback to.Contest are there to decide the best works.

    Comments are there for encouragement and feedback not votes.

    This creates more and more problems for no reason.

    Who said ill give to someone to be happy? Show me where i did there. Maybe just i have different view about the best compared to someone else.

    In the end the top will be at the top this way you just have a better view of which entry did what way. This is how statistics work oh yeha maybe i should add that i have finished bachelor with Applied math might help here. But yeah basically more votes won't make the voting any less objective which you are trying to suggest here. What more votes make are giving a better view of how everyone did in the end.

    I have been in a SYC with 30 entries where you had like 10 votes or something and in the end things were still objective.

    @bold exactly so there isn't really any need for more votes xd

    @underline+italic the winner will be the winner no matter how many points...if he has 1 vote more he is still the winner.

    This isn't only about the top 1 person and the winner. This is about everyone who entered. By giving more votes you don't make the person who is first has more votes you make the places of the middle have more votes and get a better view of their place instead of 0 votes.

    Which again makes sense if you had 2 votes only not 4.Since chances that you and someone will have same opinion is automatically lower where with 4 votes the chances are automatically higher.

    as of now you have 2 tie breakes,where it could have been 3 if not 4 if I used all my votes...which again makes problems with certain someone can just meme around and give vote to the worst one xd

    @loj @Know @EvilGenius
    Can we do this outside the 'contest' thread please? :/
    We can move to a pm if you want to discuss this further, but let's keep the SYC thread clean.

    Dude i give multiple votes coz i want to acknowledge people’s works. Ofc this can be done by word of praises, but a visual quantity is another form of acknowledgement. If people get happy, then it is a nice side effect. The winner will remain the same, coz people will always vote what they like the best. If you think 10 is the best, so be it, your opinion is not absolute.

    so why isn't it used like that,a vote or a word everything in the end is the same.

    @bold It's like a goal from penalty in a game and goal from open play...however you see it,it will always be a goal no different than other.

    @italic it makes sense since with any voting a winner will be a winner xd

    though I agree I won't post here anymore since it's a voting thread....with no feedback on works though >_>

    1st part:

    It does make difference. The number of votes should be depending on the number of entries. Having 1 vote with 3 or even 4 entries is perfectly normal thing. Having 4 votes with 10 entries is also normal thing that is 40% below even the half which is just about right. Usually having 1/3 of votes is what's considered a good ration for calculating those things and getting better view of the end result.

    2nd part:
    People can meme around even with 1 vote that wouldn't change anything. Yes tiebreaks could happen that's why i did my earlier suggestion where if you have tiebreak for the top 3 spots you can resolve it with a little vote in the thread from people by giving them 1 or 2 votes depending on the tiebreak making a clear top 3.
