  1. Why aren't the number of votes per video currently being displayed? It doesn't look like a transparent process otherwise, doesn't it? Every contest out there these days is so transparent to have all their contestants satisfied even if they didn't win.

    I request you to enable the same as we really know how each one is progressing through the course of the week.

  2. Are there no consolation prizes perhaps for the top 3? :)

  3. We totally agree with you on the transparency issue, Krishna! Thing is, we're using an outsourced platform for the contest and we don't have the ability to change its mechanisms. It's fully automated, however, so at least you can rest assured that it won't be tampered with...

  5. The Wildfire campaign app being used in this promotion simply does not publish running vote totals.
    http://help.wildfireapp.com/discussions/questions/817-show-total-number-of-votes

    It is a legitimate service, however, used in many Facebook & Twitter contests.

    In my experience, this is probably for the best, as exposed vote counts tend to spur last-minute gaming of the system in a push to win.

  6. I like the fact that they are not posted, I dont feel bad that mine could be on the bottom.
    likewise, im not always on the page checking my votes while i should be doing other things.
    Btw thanks for having the contest its been alot of fun!

  7. Hi Ramesh, I suggest he popularize it as much as he can, as there are no leaderboards this time around. Sorry for the disappointment. Like DIzzledorf said, our platform is well-respected and we trust it, so you should, too. Glad to hear that you had fun with it, Twixstarz. Some of the entries were trez impressive!

  9. Are you guys going to verify votes before you announce winners? I have been in a few wildfire contests and they can get pretty out of control. Some contestants have found ways to vote over and over agian for thier entry. You can request that Wildfire send you the voting records of the contest. They keep track of Ips and can tell you if anyone is cheating.

    Thanks for the contest. I look forward to seeing who won!!
