I haven't voted as I don't find it dumb but at the same time i think it can be tweaked a bit.
For #1, I think unconsciously we each evaluate the images with a certain importance put on different aspects and this is often a very personal thing on which putting numbers might be hard.
#2 .. like you said, i don't think could be done ...
I think your thread is really interesting though as more and more people participate in the "On Asssignment" (which is absolutely GREAT !!
) and it's often really hard to choose just one favorite. Another idea (sorry forgot whose it was) was to make a first vote to retain say the 10 most popular and then another one on those finalists only. I think that could work ...
What do others think ?
