Can IOTD just feed SaturdayShowdown? If you post an image on IOTD, you get a +1 Participation point because it'll be used in SaturdayShowdown.I think it's actually going to be the other way around. The IOTD will be selected as the top rated image from a moving seven day window that hasn't yet been an IOTD or something like that.. that would leave the pic pretty current as well and would provide a window back to the screenshotsaturday showdown. But I get what you are asking for, which is a way to have gdnet folks post to the showdown without having to go through twitter. I'll try and think of something simple.. it would probably be a simple twitter-like input box to make it easiest.
And one other thing. Saturday Showdown ....... Samurai Showdown. You know what to do
IOTD will probably be retooled to become the GD Showcase most likely.
I think there needs to be a way to skip voting on either image. [Delete] key, maybe (and a button).Agreed.. there are sometimes non-interesting images that show up. What I'm trying to do is figure out a way to quickly isolate which ones people find uninteresting and filter them from the voting process. Some just lose so much that they have to be pretty bad I'm guessing.
I get that you are choosing the better of two images, but sometimes they are both equally not interesting.
