I go through the submissions, open each one in photoshop, and eliminate the ones that don't meet the size guidelines (I don't often have time to do that as they come in during the submission period... I leave that up to the submitters). After I got done with that yesterday, I had 62 photos. I had to bring it down to 48 from there.



So that means we should be able to vote soon...right?! I am dying from anticipation.  :shocked2:
Thank you so much for the beautiful sig, RascalRatties!

I am hoping to have the polls up on Wednesday. ;D

(it was going to be tomorrow, but my hubby took the day off, so he's cutting into my normal "sitting on my butt in front of the computer" time. LOL!)

Oh, and I'm sorry if this is already in one of the many 6 pages of this thread that I missed, but do we get to see the statistics of the votes WHILE the pictures are being voted for or do we not get to see that until AFTER the polls have closed?

To prevent any shenanigans, the results will only be visible AFTER the polls have closed.

It's a contest for the best photos, NOT a popularity contest, so the results are hidden until it's all over. ;)

VOTE AWAY!!!!

I set the polls to close in 14 days... so it'll be over on Wednesday October 15th. They'll close based on when they were created, so November/December will close FIRST... I'd recommend voting before 11 am EST on that day!

Good luck to all the entries!

hey will we know the results of the votes the DAY OF the 15th? Or will we have to wait a day or two after the polls close?

As soon as they close, automatically, the results will show.

From there, I will set up a final poll to determine the cover. :)

gah! only a few more hours! I'm 13 hours ahead of you guys all the way over here in korea, so it's been the 15th ALL DAY and it's KILLING me! I won't get to check the results until way after they're posted as I am going out after work either :(
Oh well, it'll be that much more awseome when I get to finally see the results then I suppose...Is it a sad thing that the rat calendar result day is prbably one of my top 10 or 15 most exciting days of the year?  :yelcutelaugh:

It's on my list too, Bug.  :yelcutelaugh:

Is there a set time for them to close, or start closing? I've got to go to class from 12-9pm (crazy, I know) and was hoping to sneak back within that time and see the results.

ETA:

Nevermind, I found the times.  :heart:

Yeah, I can't set a time for all of them... I just set each one for 14 days, and they start shutting down on their own, in the order that I created them. Since I created them so that they would appear in chronological order, I had to do November/December first. So they're going to start winding down starting just about now...

This afternoon, I'll go through each one to officially post the winners, then create the cover poll. The voting for that will be exactly one week.

When it's available, you will know.  :thumbsup2:

After the cover poll is over, I then have to finish preparing the images for print (adding text, making sure they're the right dimensions, etc.). Then, I have to upload them all to CafePress, and "create" the calendar in the store. I hope to have it up by October 30th. If not, then November 4th (I'm off on Tuesdays and Thursdays, so I have time to devote to it).
