How the contest will work

Post  stephster17 on Thu Oct 15, 2009 4:46 pm

Ok ladies...I have been mulling this over for a while, and I have come to the conclusion that I just CANNOT do the elimination thing this time around! I hate doing it, it's a horrible feeling to have to "cut" someone out of the contest, so this is what I have decided to do...

I will be rating the layouts submitted for each round with points...the "favorite" for that round will receive 15 points, the "runner up" will receive 10 points, and all other will receive 5. That's it, as well as not eliminating, I will also not rate each layout and have someone in "last". There will be two favorites and all others will be equal. I WILL NOT share along the way who the points have gone to, it will be a mystery, until the very end. Even at the end I will not share points, only who the winner is. I will however keep a tally posted in our private DT area just for accountability sake. I think this is the fairest way and the way least likely to cause any conflict!

As much as I hate eliminations, IF you do not submit a layout by the deadline for that round, you will not be moving on to the next round, you MUST complete each challenge to stay in the game.

Of course, if you miss a challenge, you can still play along and I will post a seperate thread for anyone who wants to play along to post their layouts in. Those who are playing along do not have to have their entries done by the round deadline, they will have until the final contest deadline to complete any of the challenges they wish to complete.

And don't forget to cheer on your fellow contestants, as there will be the Miss Congeniality award for the person who does this well throughout the contest!

I think that's it! If you have any questions please let me know, and be ready for Round One...the "Interview" round...to start tomorrow!

That is such a great idea. The elimination is always tough and can create hard feelings. This will be very fun, thanks Steph!

Steph, this is a great way to judge the contest. I wondered how it was going to be done. There certainly doesn't need to be any bad feelings when our main purpose is to create, share & have fun together.

Steph...What a GREAT idea! Eliminations are sooo tough. This way everyone can continue to play.

I'd hate to have to "rate" the layouts also...good luck with that! LOL!!!

Thank you so much for deciding on that process. It's hard being the "newbie" as I haven't formed any bonds and already feel at a disadvantage because of that. Hopefully, I'll work hard enough to win some hearts! LOL

Good luck, girls! The pressure is on and we are all in for the long haul! Scrap away!
