# I just don't get it
why have a comp ideas board when it's obvious that nobody actually votes for the comps.

fraser picks the geeky shit comps of the day

making us suffer for another fucking week

The highest voted ideas are considered, and if the powers that be don't personally deem them interesting enough, a substitute of their choice is picked.

# when i say votey
i mean picked from the list of challenge suggestions.
It does seem that fraser picks them all the time, maybe the other time it's his own idea, not from the list.

# thats what I meant as well
why not take, say, 4 ideas from the 'ideas board' every week,
post em up on the main board for half an hour, let the regular contributors who hang around on wednesday to see the new compo vote for it - in thread- and then go with that one.
i'd say picking 4 choices at random from the board wouldnt be that hard - but maybe im wrong?

to save a bit of time as well, when people suggest a new image challenege idea, they could produce a standard size image to try and captivate the 'audience' into thinking it could be funky, thus saving Fraser the effort of making 4 mini pics to post with the challenge when it goes up.
By getting people who make the challenege ideas to put a bit of thought into a 'mini poster' for the challenge, it will atract votes anyway

# tis true, but at least we'd only have ourselves to blame....
and those that cared would have the vote anyway, as they are the ones who hang around on wednesday nights looking all shifty.
I must admit, i do feel sorry for Fraser having to put up with all us miserable cnuts at times

# I think that if the ideas board was a bit more accessible
then there wouldn't be this issue. I don't care if the design of the webpage doesn't suit lots of buttons, there are some buttons that need to be added.
