Title: Who seems to vote similar to you in the contest?
Post by: eclipse on November 01, 2015, 01:22:41 PM
No one? or a few? Dr Chill and me seem to vote for the same ones  ;D Probably  because we mostly like the same books.

Honestly, no idea! Doesn't seem like it, since I rarely vote for the winner. (http://liberalforum.net/images/smilies/blink.gif)

I do think it would be interesting, maybe for just one month, to ask folks to fess up to their slate and state they thoughts. Purely for fun.

Heh, this is interesting. I'll definitely say my votes for this upcoming month when the times comes, but from past experience, I will say that I tend to vote for Raptori and Saurus the most. ;D

I honestly couldn't tell you. Overall I do my best to ignore on who wrote what and just vote for the story.

Well, we sort of brushed on that topic, since a few of us mentioned in their previous voting stats who they voted the most for, but then again it was retro-active.

I've had enough surprises that I still can't say I have a preference for anyone. There isn't anyone I'm looking forward to read : I read what is there, and get really excited by some. But sometimes I vote for 5 stories but only 1 or 2 really left a big impression on me.

Now I'm confused because I've no idea how other people vote to compare because they don't usually say.  This is the first time I've ever named who I voted for online and I actually went back to modify adding three more of my votes  to my winner congrats in that thread because so many others were naming their choices this month.

I'm quite happy to name my votes after it is over but not sure how others feel about it and I don't think there would be patterns.

Unless the excel addicts did an incredible interactive spreadsheet and we did future forecasting and ran a book ....... No? Perhaps not. ;D ;D 

I vote for the story by title when I read and score out of ten, and it wasn't until we did stats that I found there were two writers I had voted for often but otherwise quite a spread over many others.
