I still don’t understand why it’s necessary for a CH to remove other contestants’ points after a contest has closed and in the process of deciding a winner. The nonprofit contest which closed yesterday (4975, I think) has increased one contestant’s score to a 5, and I can’t speak for anyone else, but in the last hour, all my points disappeared. My 4 became a 1. Has anyone else had a problem there?
you mean this one
none rated, tried haitian words as requested
My two 4-star went to a 3 and a 2
Same here. My only 4 became a 1. I just went in a deleted all of my entries.
Heartbreaking! I’m glad I didn’t enter that contest,
None other than
I agree with @auntshommy. These sweeping point changes aren’t meaningful to the process once a contest ends – we can no longer submit or tweak entries. I wonder if SH can implement stages in a contest, where each stage sees the system behave differently pertinent to the type of work being done.
Yes 4 stars became 1 star, and then he added he wanted ‘voices’ as keyword, so my couple of entries with ‘voices’ also were 1 starred.
Same here. One of my low ratings was “VoicesLit,” which was supposed to be both “Ignited” and “Literature.” It was very frustrating.
One possible explanation for downgrading the no longer desired entries is to make them invisible to the beholder’s eye.
but they have tools to only look at certain ratings
This same contest has now downgraded every single entry, long after the contest closed. Anyone else?
