:happybounce:

Nonetheless - may I recommend to reselect the submissions that doesn't fit the given rules to be sorted out directly in future contests (in this case mostly not fitting to "the darker side of melancholy")?
It doesn't make the decision for voting much easier because there are still such a lot of really good entries, but to go through a folder that only includes valid contributions won't distract that much and it might be easier to handle by the organizer, too.

Why don't you just put sets of polls with the entries and then at the end take the ones with the highest votes and put them in a poll for the grand winners?
Reply
:iconroses-to-ashes:
Roses-to-Ashes Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
because we would have way to many polls lol
Reply
:icondawns-envy:
Dawns-Envy Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
And then the ones that do not follow the contest theme could also be weeded out? I mean, if something is super bright and happy then it could be left out of the polls and then you wouldn't get off topic votes. Because some people might send you votes on pictures that they find absolutely gorgeous but completely disregard the melancholy concept. :XD:

if they do that I disregard that vote and/or ask them to pick something else ;)

But wouldn't that be easier than looking through hundreds of individual comments? If You had around ten or fifteen entries per poll, and then took the top two from each, then did a grand poll with the tops out of that, it just seems that would be a more organized system and everyone could vote easily. :)

Too many pages, and many off-topic.
It would have taken to make a preselection, because, I do not have any time to peel all ...

It's the off-topic part that makes this the hardest. I know that it's in the eye of the beholder but some don't seem very melancholic do they? :/

:iconarayashikinoshaka:
Arayashikinoshaka Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
Yes, people should vote according to the theme and not the "pure beauty" picture. There are pictures that are beautiful, but not in the theme.

The trees are starting to turn around Middle TN, may have to get up very early for a theme fitting shot.
