And it is going down the wire…
The entry deadline for the first British iPhone giveaway has now been extended yet again.
This time until midnight on Friday 16th November.
The reason for this is that rather than completely abandoning the initial comment voting idea, I am following Imran’s advice on implementing a version of comment voting that only allows readers to vote other entries up.
To summarise my reply to Imran’s comment, I have done two things:
1. I have contacted the author of the ‘Comment Karma’ third party plugin used to enable Comment Voting to ask if he/she can make (or advise on making) the modifications necessary to the plugin to only allow ‘positive’ Comment Voting.
2. I have also contacted my web developer to ask if he is comfortable with making the changes himself.
I’ll post an update as soon as I hear back.
Hopefully, this will make the competition much fairer and remedy the current situation with ‘negative’ voting of comments which has marred the giveaway so far.
