Gerrit already said in the October-thread that sending a reminder to vote a few days earlier would be a good idea and I agree! Tonight at 12pm I got a reminder to vote and at 3.30 this morning I got: And the winners are...
And I only checked my mail at 8.00 this morning

Maybe a message could be placed on the Home-page alerting users to the competition? Blinking? :}:}:}

I'd really love to see more participants, especially since we have members with such varied fractal interests

Update: hmmm, themes?? Halloween? Colour? Fuzz? Or would that be too childish? (not for me! )

I didn't send a reminder, maybe that goes automatic?
Anyway, every month till now,  I put on the last day a call to vote but this time I didn't,  for all the other times maybe one or two persons voted, no more than that.  So only a reminder is not enough to get people to participate I think.  A call on the main page would maybe be a good idea?

That's an e-mail timed at 00:03 last night, auto-notification

So indeed, you're not sending anything... My bad!

I agree we should get a notification to vote also on the Home-page

but if someone just posts a short "vote now" in the last days to just keep the topic up and in view, that should be enough.

sorry I'm not more active myself right now, life got very chaotic here with lots of big changes that take up nearly all of my time.
hope this will calm down in the next weeks.

Argghhh no flashing banners like in the merry early nineties?

The messages... ehm... I need to be the remindee, not the reminder

Good luck with everything, Fraktalist, take your time!

Probably not many people check this website every day, so maybe a "call for votes" say 5 day before the deadline?
You could also perhaps add some motivational stuff about how good it is to vote, though I wouldn't know what that would be
Or put up a list of people that voted with a thank you to shame the non-voters?
Or make the vote obligatory, and get suspended when you don't vote but have accessed the website withing the voting period.
Not sure how I can get more silly...

Yeah, I can do that.  I think the best thing is to make a little change every day to keep it in the picture :0o  I can try that, if I have the time and don't forget it I'm not sure it will be very helpful. Maybe to make it more known on the internet, on social media... get more members and get more participants. Maybe that is not even a bad idea?  I think a shame-list is not such a friendly idea     Maybe we can sell the virtual tomatoes and get some money for FF     Nor the more dictatorial option
But thank you for your input.  Much appreciated, at least you come up with some ideas

Sorry I was late, I almost missed the starting day.  I've been in bed most off the day (flue) and just realized it is december the frist   So the contest thread for december is open.  I hope more participants will admit their Art.
