You know, in a Tie break, i would rather have the Staff vote, to put it back out there wouldn't be fair. If you are square (even), well then you need an internal vote by the creators of the contest! This works I doubt the team would want to revisit a new format? So lets move on to the finals, and yes lets hope we don't land up with another two bounty's on the same piece of ice! :) Cos that woul be very 'cold'... LOL
Good Luck may the best ship sail forth....

2 major complainers in one contest?!

The staff here run this site out of their own time and pockets. You read the bit about the prizes being self funded, not donated from Lego, right? If they keep getting complaints like this, maybe they'll just stop doing them for their own sanity? Would you really want that?

I certainly wouldn't. I love seeing the creativity in these contests. The remaining 4 are right in my opinion.

I am quite sure, for clarity, the staff will ensure that EVERY SINGLE FINITE DETAIL is laid out in the rules at the start. But please do remember that a tied vote is almost unprecedented, so some slack on how to deal with that should be given here.

Well, that discussion was interesting to read.

After I've found the topic with the rules of the contests, I was a bit surprised that there's no
sentence like: All staff decisions are final.
That's something I see a lot in contests.
Correct me if I missed it, but it would be nice to see it in the rules of every contest.

I still can't understand why was there such a buzz about votes splited up in 7:3 ratio.
There's no reason for staff members to have exactly the same opinion like forum members.
And ted @ndes suggested a very nice way of solving the problem.

My two cents, I guess.

I did mention this to founder, that the contest (s) will need to carry a terms and conditions, which needs to be used as a reference to entering anything, so we don't land up with misunderstanding and unsure situations... I just cant see why the staff vote issue has been pulled out like this? The control of how tie's etc are handled need to come from staff, we as the com can't take that into our hands, that would be just a glass house waiting for the stones to be thrown...
A community vote will be always differ to a staff vote, after all we all have different tastes and that ratio would be higher on a lesser vote count. I think if there are solid ground rules planted, we all know were we need to step, and understand how to conduct the process and in turn 'respect' it!
Thats not only my two cents but five!

_nours: If there were only three staff votes, would a 2 to 1 split have annoyed you as much? 67% compared to 70% of the vote. 2:1 is quantitatively much closer (the one vote edging it) but proportionally similar. The small sample size of the staff vote means it's more likely for swings like this to show up.

The re-vote system seems unfair because of people unable to do so and new voters joining the sample. I say make them build another ship with the same bricks! ;) Seriously, staff tie-break is fine. It's not an uncommon system. Editor's decision is final is also common and the comes down to one vote.
