I am pretty incredulous... at the time of writing this the combined views of the Prose voting thread is approx 180, yet has only had 7 votes cast!!!
And the Poetry shows the same signs of apathy.. 120 views and only 6 votes cast.... and of that total of 13 votes I've cast 4 of them!!!!
Are people actually aware there is a contest going on, and that they are eligible to vote...or is this forum just populated by disinterested passing perusers?
Yes, I've seen luckyme adding a quick note about the contest and voting to several comments and posts, but that relies on people reading that particular post. And yes, there is a contest specific post directing people to the entries and urging them to vote but, it appears to be hookless..
I know you can lead a horse to water and all that, but perhaps it's time to to grab it by the neck and thrust its head into the trough until it DOES drink!
Can admin not send out a blanket spam message to all members urging them to vote.. and maybe keep sending it at regular intervals until the deadline?
I'm just at a loss to understand why people don't want to participate in this...even most of the entrants, to a certain extent, who have taken the time and effort in the first place to enter have obviously not yet voted... it's all very peculiar.
Good luck to everyone in it anyway.
And for those of you have voted, get across there and do it now!!
