There have been a few questions and complaints from some of you regarding the staring contest and people you believe may be cheating in some form, so I wanted to explain what’s going on.
I noticed some of the comments were wondering why certain entries fouled out when the stares seemed legit. These entries were fouled out because there were inconsistent scoring patterns. If you have any questions, please do let me know. Ibeatyou is about competing, which means winning fair and square. It’s easy for us and our members to spot suspicious voting, and we will foul out entries that have used unfair methods to vote up their score because it is not fair to the other entrants. This goes for all competitions, not just the staring contest.
We prevent cheating, but don’t interfere with voting in any way and will never do so. Love an entry? Vote it up! Think a lame one is in first place? Vote it down! But most of all- have fun, and play fair! Now go out and compete!
