I don’t know about you all, but I am getting a bit tired of 98% (and yes, that’s probably fairly accurate) of my entries either not being seen at all or being seen and not being rated. I don’t know what I am supposed to do in either of these cases nor do I understand what it means. Is it really that hard for people to rate the entries? Do they get tired of the process or only see like 100 names and already have their favorite and decide to not check any others? I don’t get it. If we have rules and guidelines that we have to meet in order to be able to participate, wouldn’t it make sense that we at least be thrown a little bit of a bone and make it so that a CH has to give a rating and/or feedback of some type to ensure that the process works to the best of its abilities for all involved. Otherwise, how do we know that our hard work is being seen, that our comments detailing why we thing the entry fits their business is being read, and not only for our benefit but theirs as well because wouldn’t we like to ensure that they are getting their money’s worth and actually being shown all of their suggestions in a clear, concise, and easy manner that enables them to have the best selection process available?
I just don’t know what to do here, I am being told by SH that I am not able nor allowed to post questions to the CH until I have 400 points or I win a contest and yet I am getting pretty high ranks just not accumulating many points because I may submit one name per contest because usually that name is a work for it, test the waters, give my best possible and my rating shows for it. But because of this I am not accumulating points, those I do accumulate I am having to occasionally spend for best entry, and I am going against creatives that have been here for years and submitting up to 12 or more entries (seen this QUITE a few times) and I am still getting high-ranked with my one where they may have 1-2 out of their twelve and sometimes lower ranked. But I’m not winning yet to be able to get the public message access and I am not accumulating points that fast to get it either. It’s not like I want to flood the contest and the CH with dozens of options and entries when it took me only one or two to get a like or love. But then in the other contests my entries are going days of not being seen, or not being ranked at all and only a low level of people having been ranked at all in those contests. So what am I supposed to do? I cant ask if my entries sucked (not that I would say that), or if they are burned out (again not going to say that either, come on I have more sense than that), but I cannot do anything. Should I just always take the seennotranked as trash and withdraw, or wait indefinitely for someone to ask what we should do, praying that someone does?
