Hi all from LXF towers,

From LXF homePage comes this:
Quote:

Make it with Mono: voting stage open!
The submissions are in, and now you can cast your vote on the website!


Where "cast your vote" is linked directly to the 10 entries with the highest score, and where you can not choose "next" to view others.

Would it not be more fair to everyOne of the 220 entries,
to link the text on LXF's indexPage to the list of ALL entries
instead of to just the first 10 ?

Esspecially since it seems that some are rigging their votes ... ?
Quote:

Note: some projects, such as ###, have been subject to massive attempts at vote-rigging. Don't bother - we're fully aware of it, we're watching open proxies and we're deleting invalid votes.


I can also imagine that, as it is, someone would think those 10, linked to the LXF homePage, are all that was submitted.

I am trying to compensate for this with my signature, but it would be better to give everyone a bit more of a fair chance.

Lis

You can, however, click on the Entries link at the top to see all the entries. Though I'm inclined to think that, as they are listed in order of votes, it is unlikely that anyone is going to go through all 200 hundred, which means those near the bottom will stay there.

Looking at the current top project, Miranda, I'm left asking myself if what we all need is yet another IM client. Rolling Eyes

Click 'Entries' at the top to view all of them. Or search for topics of your interest!

I think it's more fair to every one of the 220 entries if the link was to all of them, and not just the 10 with the highest number of votes.

Yes; you can find a link that brings you to the others.

But that takes some thinking and figuring out.

Surely you know that most of us are to much in a hurry to do any of that
for something as trivial -compared to other work that involves making money- as a vote for an app programmed in mono.
For most it's just not interesting enough to do any thinking for.

If, at the bottom of the page, those people would see the "next 10 items"-link, chances are they will be tempted to take a peek.

Thus increasing the chance that all the other entries get some attention.


The chances that people scroll back up, to see what else is on that site, and are attracted to the "entries" and "search" link, are much more slim,
unless you're on a break and really have no plans for the rest of the day. Wink Well .. something like that anyway.


This is why I do think it would be more fair to everyone of the 220 entries, to make the link on the homepage goTo all 220 entries instead of the 10-most-voted-for.

OK, I've added a 'Next 10 entries' link on the front page.

"to make the link on the homepage goTo all 220 entries instead of the 10-most-voted-for"

220 entries on a single page? That'd be gigantic, and probably crash most browsers!

Mike:

Thanx a million !!
I did not mean to ask for a link to all 220 entries on the same page.
Just the "next" link at the bottom.
So it's pefect what you did with it.

Now I can take my signature of me.

Cheers !
