I remember the first time I entered an FBTB contest, I didn't even get a handful of votes, literally. The second time I entered an FBTB contest, I got even less votes, I mean, Captain Hook could count the number of votes I got on the fingers of his hook hand. Nowadays, I'm just happy to participate. The fierce competition makes for a better contest overall, doesn't it?
I do wonder if the contest entries should be anonymous, so that the contest entries compete on solely their own merits.
