    Did I miss something? When did we start offering cash and big ticket items to the winners of these contests? This must be true.... cause why would anyone go to all the trouble of soliciting votes if it weren't?

    Geez.:rolleyes:

    I did vote for myself afew times but sometimes that is the only vote I get...LOL It is wrong to ask friends to vote for you.

    Geez...seems pretty lame to be soliciting for votes.

    Heck - I've never even voted for myself (I didn't think it was permissable).


    Take care.

    I only vote for myself if I feel that my picture if the best out of the lot(also wether the OP says wetehr you can or not) if there is a better picture I vote for it!!

    I can't believe people are trying to pressure people to vote for them, that would would make me have a very bad image of them...:no:

    I don't ask anyone to vote for me. I feel that if I deserved a vote - it should come from their own decision, not me ASKING them to. Because even asking can be somewhat pressuring.

    Or if you vote for them they will give you a positive rep. Yep. I've gotten THAT one before.
