I've been out of town for a family reunion so I've missed a lot of these posts. I would like to put my opinion in..
1st off, this is how I vote... I view all of the pics. I write down which ones that "I"
think should win. I usually pick a top 10. Then I look through the "10" I picked. Then I look again, then I vote on what "I" think are the best. I don't agree w/ voting for every pic.
If you put a cake in a contest you are risking your feelings being hurt, risking low ratings, etc. So when you put a cake in then to me, that means you understand ALL the rules & will agree w/ the outcome of the contest. I think that all this talk about the votings is really silly. (My opinion) Everyone should vote how they want & that be that. I will not vote poor or fair on any cake! Eventhough that might be what I think. Fair is fair. I will look at EVERY cake in the contest before making a decision.
I also do not think Jackie or this site should have to change anything to please the members. Just because a few members didn't think it was fair for the person who won to win doesn't mean things should have been changed like they were (the star ratings). That to me wasn't fair.
I would like to also say... I think it is going to be silly as all get out if anyone makes a post saying.... "We weren't arguing, we weren't stepping on toes".... yes, some were! No throwing stones...
And remember..... WE ALL HAVE OPINIONS.... just play nice~
There are a lot of talented cake decorators on CC. Why not let Jackie make the rules & we just follow them. Yes, we all have opinions... I have for sure!
I think any opinions should just be addressed to Jackie in a PM & handled that way instead of blowing everything out of porportion.
& getting others mad or upset. It's not worth arguing over... the prize is a book for crying out loud!
