      Vote-Off #4 is about to begin. The pages are up and linked and (hopefully!) all working perfectly. I will start the event officially a 9pm and will then announce it on social media, in the blog here etc. Before that, if any of you find any issues or mistakes, PLEASE let me know!

      Thank you!

        Yes, it also feels a little scary facing my own page…

      Looks like we’ve already got 2 volunteers for Vote-Off #5.

        Depending on how my nerves hold out after Vote 4 then I could be tempted in to Vote 5 (depending on the theme).

        Of course if the first 2 volunteers are both women then I should be fairly safe.

          I think the only way a mixed gender Vote-Off would be possible is with only couples taking part (ie so you vote for a couple).

        Al got most votes after first round,  so his votes get reset to zero, mine and others votes are carried over to the next round.  There’s been 1 more vote for me since then

        You’re comparing the Round 2 votes with the results of Round 1. Round 1’s results came from Round 1 votes. Gary didn’t have 2 votes in Round 1.

      Round 3 begins!

      Voting has been pretty minimal so far, but I’m expecting it to pick up as the clothes come off.

      What does everyone think of the photos page for each participant. They are a little basic but designed to be easy for me to update.

       

      We need more people voting!

          It’s not really working too well as a fund raiser if we only have 3 voters. I’ll have to run one of these every month to keep the site afloat!

      How can I get more voting going on it this Vote-Off?

        A 2-cent suggestion although it doesn’t work for this Vote-Off.

        Allow registered site members a few votes for each Vote-Off. It wouldn’t get you money directly but would probably encourage people just checking out the site from Twitter, etc., to register on the site and hopefully participate. This would eventually (hopefully) lead to a lot more interaction and more Supporters.

        I know you need money to keep the site going, but trying to get money out someone new to the site to be able to vote is a turn off. The availability of sites for exposure has certainly increased over the years and its tough to get people to pay for what they can get free elsewhere. I don’t mean that derogatory to this site. I like it and that’s why I participate. 🙂

          There are over 220 active members of the site (visited the site more than once and have visited in the past 7 days). I haven’t got room on my spreadsheet for that many!

          I’m not really expecting money out of new visitors (although I’ve got to try obviously!) but if 10% of regulars bought 1 lot of votes it would fund the site for a few months. I find the percentage of new visitors who are interested in the Vote-Off seems to be very low. Female participants would turn that around completely.

          Someone PMed me to suggest that I should charge an entrance fee to participants for the next one and make voting free (one vote per person per round). I’d feel bad charging volunteers AND it’s already difficult to get volunteers in the first place.

          Maybe having participation in the Vote-Off only open to Supporters? I’d prefer that to directly charging for entry.

          That might be a viable solution, except for the ladies. I’d give them free entry. I’m sure it is hard enough to get participants for that already.

          Would you give members a set amount of votes? I think if there was a way to get away from paid votes without cheating, that it would be a good thing.

          However I work this, it gets complicated. Using the free votes system (1 per person per day), wouldn’t the participants already get free votes anyway?

          In the first Vote-Off, some voters bought large amounts of votes – raising far more money than participants paying for Supporter status would, especially as several of them already have long term Supporter status anyway.

          Being free for women participants is a must, but then I’d had to charge for votes for the whole thing to work at all…

          Yes, it is certainly a balancing act.

          But, if you have 4-5 participants each round, them getting a few extra votes over others wouldn’t be a bad thing. 😉

      Gary had the most votes at the end of Round 9 but, sadly, only one vote was cast that round. I’m hoping voting picks up a LOT tomorrow.

      We got a couple of votes at the last moment. Gary won that round and now has no clothing left!

      Round 13 begins…

      I’m considering changing the rules so that there is only one “winner” in this competition. I know that will wind things up more quickly but it might liven up the competition in the meantime. The last few rounds rarely get more than 3-4 votes cast.

      Vote-Off #1 raised more than £100 for the site (over 6 months hosting costs). Costs have gone up a little since then, but Vote-Off #4 looks like it’s going to top out at less than a third as much and won’t quite cover 2 months.

      Unless we run a Vote-Off every 2 months, it’s not going to work.

        Any thoughts on this change? Good/bad?

      And I guess it takes around 2 months to get a Vote Off organised…

        Last one (#4) took just shy of a year…

        Also, I simply don’t have enough free time to run this every couple of months. I’m putting a LOT more time than I usually can into this event, keeping momentum going on this site and social media promotion work. It’s impossible for me to do that every month.

      Round 15 is over. Gary “wins” that one and is now exposed for all to see!

      The original plan was to end this Vote-Off when all bar one participant had reached their last photo. Given the very slow rate of voting in this one, what does everyone think of ending it after the first participant gets there?

      Drew and BamaSwitch just received 2 votes each. Unless more votes are bought in the next few minutes there are only 3 votes left to be cast before the end of the round.

        Dang! I thought I would make it all the way without even losing my jacket. LOL

          Someone chose to spend their last votes by splitting them between the participants with the most clothing.

      Round 17 finishes with @Gary completely exposed in a closeup photo!

      Round 18 has begun, but there are hardly any votes left to be cast. Who do you want to be the next one naked and on display for all to see?

      No votes were cast over the weekend so I’m rolling it over again.

      We’re heading for a threeway tie today, so PLEASE can someone vote for one of those 3 to break the tie?

      Round 20 has begun!

      El Hombre won round 19 and is extremely close to being exposed to us all.

      Here goes round 23!

      I didn’t think the Vote-Off would go on this long., but it’s not over yet. Bamaswitch lost round 22 and is rapidly catching up with Gary and El Hombre.

      10 minutes left in Round 23 and I think Bamaswitch is going to lose this round. Any last minute votes?

        No one came to his rescue so Bamaswitch has lost his underwear!

        Round 24 has begun.

      15 minutes left in round 24. Unless there’s some last-minute voting, Al and Bamaswitch will be facing the camera at the end of this round.

      You have the power to change that!

      Round 26 has finished, leaving El Hombre as our 2nd “winner” and exposed for all to see.

      Will someone else be revealing their closeup at the end of Round 27?

      We have a winner for Vote-Off #4. Drew was the only participant to make it to the end with clothing still one. Everyone else has been displayed to the world with a close up!

       

      With the apparent level of interest right now, I’m hoping to start Vote-Off #5 soon.
