To let everyone know: I am going to be stuck on dialup internet access for a few months, so the application process will not be as quick as I'd like. Please remember, each application is thoroughly reviewed, manually, and portfolios will take quite some time to load on my extremely slow internet connection, it is this that will slow the process down most. Please bare with me and have some patience, I'll be getting back up to speed by the end of fall :)


Hello Illumina, I had not read this post so I am sorry if I sent you multiple PM :p

I have a question. I have seen many quiet and not disturbing members getting many NO on the poll, I really always read the posts before voting and I was wondering if the poll system could be negative in a way. Some very competitive designers could vote no just to avoid other skilled designers having the appliance accepted, I really can't find other reasons for voting no in those cases. I suggest to make people write down a line with the reasons why the user should have bothered the community; without that it might be unfair. I dunno if I made clear, but I find it unfair for some people to be judged negatively without a reason.

Regards.


EDIT: I read right now that scorpionagency asked the same thing, I'll read replies.

The voting is based on that members participation with in DC it really should have no reflection on their work.
DC is simply asking "did this member contribute to the site in a POSITIVE way?"

If I feel you've been posting a bunch of crap just to get to the 10 posts then I'll vote NO.
If I've read where you've been helpful participated within the forum maybe participated in some of the community contests. then I'd vote YES.

There are a few threads that discuss this more in depth. just look/read around in this area.
;)

Just curious, how long does the process take? And if you are not accepted will you be notified? I filled out the application about a week or so ago and have not heard anything back yet, so I'm just wondering.
Thanks! Mindy

I have read that page numerous times and fulfill all those requirements. Do you happen to know about how long it takes for them to get to the application after it has been submitted?

On a side note, do you happen to know if there will be any new community contests soon? I'm kicking myself for missing the deadline for the vampire drink. I made a design and everything and thought I had more time to send it in. I was sad to see yesterday I had missed out. Oh well, there is always next time!

Thanks! Mindy

They are processed in the order they come. then reviewed and an email will be sent to you regarding you acceptance or not. Then you'll be voted upon.

As for the Community contests. Yes there will another one soon. One of our staff members are working out the details as we speak. ;)
It should be a fun one.

Ive just been participate on a contest of a funny "baby monster" but I have the dude how the votes are applied, i told this because the winner was a good sketch from a baby stamp with two dogtooth..but was not funny..

I think votes should be qualified in categories depending on requirements, for example a contest of a car sketch should have options to vote: ellegance, creativity, dinstinction...etc and each one of these topics should be a percentage value to qualified the best...

votes are simply who's you liked the best. If someone didn't follow the brief given then you wouldn't vote for it. ;) simple as that. it's your vote use it as you like.

I totally agree with SliverFX.Or may I suggest to have the DC team to screen thru those had been voted 'NO' and give a second chance to those that are really good ones or like what SliverFX had mentioned to have a good and strong reason to support their 'NO' vote if not it will be consider invalid.

Hi,

I just became a member and I am curious if the voters are also allowed to enter the contests....a little confused lol

Introduction:

This post is a brief overview of how the "Attention All Members: _____ needs your votes!" threads work. You may have already seen them in this section and there may actually be several of these up right now. What follows is a breakdown of the system being implemented with these threads.


Basic Idea:

Motivated by our recent "nice work" discussion, we’ve decided that it would be fair for Design Team applicants to be voted upon in terms of their (hopefully meaningful) interaction with others on the forum. Therefore, once a designer has applied to the Design Team via the usual application form and has proven to meet or exceed our standards for Design Team members with his/her portfolio, that designer will be subject to the voting system described below.


More Details:

The voting begins when a thread titled, "Attention All Members: _____ needs your votes!", is posted in the Announcements section; naturally, the blank will be replaced with the username of some DC forum member. Within this newly created thread, users will find a poll-question along the lines of, “Has this forum member contributed positively to your DC experience?” If you believe that the answer is yes, then vote “Yes”; otherwise, you should vote “No” given, of course, that you’ve seen at least a few of the member's posts and strongly believe that there has been no such positive contribution.

In order to pass this voting process, the total number of "yes" votes must exceed the total number of "no" votes by at least two (2) votes . Further to that, if the number of "yes" votes does not exceed the number of "no" votes by at least three (3) votes, then the pass/fail outcome of the poll remains at the full discretion of the administrator running the poll. The administrator may inspect the applicant's profile and/or consider any other relevant information to determine the outcome of the poll.


Please Vote:

The results of these polls will strongly affect the final decision about the Design Team application in question. Therefore, we stress the following:

a. Voting is vital – If you’re not already on the Design Team, then chances are that you too may be voted upon at some point. Please extend the courtesy of voting to others, remembering that you would surely have them do the same for you!

b. We encourage all applicants to keep this voting system in mind at all times; not just before and during, but also after the application process – If your skills are enough to get you through the Design Team door, then we would certainly appreciate it if you could share some of those skills with the rest of the forum members. Be it in the form of an occasional critique or a bit of inspirational work, your contributions to DC will help make it a better place.

Best of luck to all applicants, and thank you for voting!

Important:_______
Please note that, while this voting process is vital to becoming a Design Team member, it does not serve to undermine the required skills that are presented in a designer's portfolio. One should not expect to enter the Design Team based on forum participation alone.
note: the original thread was flooded with offtopic messages and it had to be closed, but if you are still interested you can find it here.
