Extermination of the VULTURES
Posted 22 November 2012 - 06:08 AM
If they either do it well enough the CH doesn't notice, or build on something that's been submitted and improve it, or if the CH doesn't care and picks a vulture submission anyways it just good fortune on their part. As rough as it may be, this is a contest after all, and we are entirely at the whim of the CH. That's the name of the game.
Besides the website does a decent enough job of punishing those who blatantly copy, and it's a hard line to draw in the sand anyways. What's the difference between being inspired by, and copying a fellow design? Surely I am not the only one who at least takes not of what has high ratings in a non-blind contest?

My friend if you don't know the difference, you simply don't know what is like to be inspired. You obviously can get inspire by a winning design offcourse, and it's when in your mind you see your own design, completly different.
Anyway, it's better to seearch for your inspiration somewhere else.

But now.... I have keep on seeing a few designer doing this. Waiting till the last day, and then submit. And that is their tactic. I couldn't believe it!
I was following what they are doing. One particulary won many contests by that. How convenient!!!!
I definitely think DC should bring the new option... like 4 days of submitting, 3 for improving... or something similar.

Of course if all contests were blind, it wouldn't be an issue. Or if there was a way that the rating points could be blind (not the entries), then no one would know what direction the CH was leaning towards. It could be setup that only each designer can see their own entry rating, but no one else can. The CH of course would see all ratings. Once the CH picked the winning design, then all rating points would become visible. Might be a programming nightmare, but I think it could work.

We have designers here who actually do not design, but figuring out how to copy and cheat in every possible way. They will simply track the whole process, by watching what design/designer is having the most entries, what and if they changed anything... by watching the improvement process you could definitely know what CH likes.
