lucid Posted August 16, 2016 Report Share Posted August 16, 2016 EDIT: WELCOME BACK to the newly resurrected Awesome Boss contest, now with three proper human judges! Please be sure to update or submit your boss animation video ASAP! The submission window will close at midnight EST, just as it becomes September 1st! We'll send a link to the playlist to the three judges at that point and should get the judging results back within a few days. Best of luck to everyone! cheers. -Mike at BrashMonkey EDIT: Hello everyone, We're hoping to have your help to resolve an issue that just came to our attention. Despite it clearly being against the spirit of the contest, more than one contestant is using a third party site to basically buy likes(votes) for their animation. This is in direct contradiction to the text we had everyone paste in their description, requesting that voters watch the submitted animations from all contestants before voting, and that the the votes be based on actual merit/quality of the work. As you know, we had expected and accepted some bias from friends and family, but this is a different level of intentional manipulation and abuse of the system and spirit of the contest. We realize this is the sort of thing some of you were warning could happen, and clearly (and sadly) you were right. We'd like to change the voting system and move back the voting date, but this is only possible if we get all contestants to agree with the change (via email/electronic signature). Of course, we want to make sure we don't change voting to another system which can be similarly abused, so please give us a few days to come up with the new system. We're strongly leaning towards having judges, but the obvious choice of judges (ourselves) would not work, as we are friends/acquaintances or work with or more than one of the contestants. Feel free to make suggestions in this thread in the meantime. For now we're keeping the entry closing date the same, but what do you all think about having a second submission window to allow the people who had refrained from entering the contest due to the judging system to make an entry now that judging will be different? thanks. -Mike at BrashMonkey Welcome to the Awesome Boss Contest official submission thread.
