Would anyone like to participate? :D
My friends and I have created an ulzzang tumblr contest blog (for fun!) We would love to have you guys jump start the contest if you have a Tumblr. We believe it will be a fun and unique experience. The blog is ready to go, we just need help spreading the word! So please join us ^^
Also, it'd be great to have some suggestions on what we could do to make it fair and enjoyable! To visit, click the banner above, or the link in my signature below, or enter ulzzangcontests.tumblr.com into your address bar. Thank you~
Although we regret that the contest is open for only Tumblr users, we feel it's best to keep it that way because with that it's possible for other people on Tumblr to see your picture through our voting system, click your blog, and start following you! Like becoming a real ulzzang, but more like Tumblr famous sort of thing.
We're currently on our third contest and we've been conflicted about something. Those who are more popular can gain many votes, thus making it a popularity contest. However, we implemented a rule indicating that contestants are no longer allowed to reblog themselves starting from the 2nd contest onwards. It seemed to work for the 2nd contest, but others have suggested other means to make it more fair... such as having all of the pictures anonymous and then reveal the names after the contest is over. However, even if we make all of the names anonymous, the system still wouldn't be as effective. If they're famous such that our followers are following ulzzangcontests & him/her, then they most likely already know what they look like, so making it anonymous wouldn't help since most blogs have a face to their name. If it's the case that the person is famous and they enter into the contest, but our followers don't follow them then, what's the difference? Sorry if this doesn't make much sense. But basically making the name anonymous still wouldn't hide the fact if their famous to begin with. We're trying to make it so contestants can't advertise themselves, which is really the main cause, but it's kind of hard to control.
Is there any other way to make the contest more fair?
