Well, having you vote for the finalists in last week’s caption contest seems to have gone well overall. Certainly made selecting finalists easier for me. There is, of course, one little thing…
There’s no need to give other folk’s comments a “thumbs down.” I’m not even sure why WordPress includes that feature, but okay, fine. You want to be able to communicate via the Roger Ebert scale that you didn’t like a comment. But some of them seemed a little random. They weren’t even “booing” captions they didn’t like, people “booed” little “Ha ha! Nice one!” comments. Even some of my responses to people’s comments. What’s up with that? “Boooo! That response to the comment lacked insight and metaphor! Also, you used the wrong form of ‘its’! I hate you! Booo!”
I suspect it was someone having a bad day, and maybe that provided good venting. So, fine.
Other than that, things went smoothly, I thought. Anyway, here are the top 4 finalists, you can vote once a day, so tell your friends and get to campaigning!
