jjanssen (I don’t know how the judging decision was made!)
The extra ‘RULES’ are in a spoiler in the original post!
When it It was a Competition with ‘real’ prizes (Payback, I believe) hosted by @polowoman long before I started hosting the Challenge, the votes were simple ‘Kudos’ from members of the Community. Since our platform change mid-August 2019 to Flarum, we have had reactions, all of which, although with various interpretations, are meant to be ‘positive’ so the voting is a combined total number of ALL reactions received.
I am trying to help other members find the Creative Corner and to participate. We used to get more entries and more votes when the threads were ‘stickied’ at the top of General Discussion. However, any ‘stickies’ are shown at the top of All Discussions regardless of the TAG, so on the default setting, it was impossible to find ANYTHING beyond the stickied threads.
That is why we have our own new subTAG for Creative Corner for all these lovely topics which used to be stickied!
