  1. Congratulations to everyone, but…
    Contests are just huge popularity contests to see how many of your followers actually read your stories. I really hate how this is run. The same people always get to the finals. It just makes me mad. Tom “Jellybean” Stack is a name that comes to mind. I don’t hate him and if he ever reads this comment I hope he knows that, but he has 295 followers and I have what, 56? Only ten of which actually actively following me?
    This entire system just pisses me off.
    Rant over.

  2. yey! finalist! i just want to know when the winner is announced!

    and i do kinda agree with audrey, this sometimes can be a popularity contest, which gets me pretty up set. however, some people actually do try hard for this, and to see that you’re a finalist is amazing. i have what, 40 followers? and im a finalist. i dont think its always the popularity thing, although i do agree with you that this is kind of a popularity thing.

    i prefer the contest when the people of figment decide the winners. i find it much easier and more fair for everyone else.

    well, congrats to everyone who got it! good luck, even if you are my competition! ^^
