In this time not less interesting vote turns out. 11 screenshots is also very good :)) . Each competitor has his own vision of the theme. Each screenshot is interesting in its own way :wink: .

My cast of votes are Emperor Jake, GarryG and michael blunck.

I because of poor health could not send here your screenshot (A common cold that can happen any time of the year.). I'm feeling better now :D . And a screenshot just today I was able to do. Anyway, I'll try another time to take part in a new theme :D .

No it doesn't, whilst GarryG is currently in the lead, Voting has not yet ended, and doesn't end until the 9th July (see highlighted part of screenshot below). It's still a close competition, so good luck to all who have entered.

Great vote. Until the end it is not known who will be the winner of June 2018. The difference in one vote at the moment still gives nothing. At any time, everything can change. Yes, there is still enough time until the end of the vote :wink: .

Thanks all for voting! It was my first time in this thread.

Unfortunatelly, my impressions are poor. It was very unpleasant to see how people vote for their favorite screenshots and after that they change votes to promote potential winners, according to voting statistics... :roll: If this is the idea of "screenshot of the month", I sign out.

I'm sorry you feel that way. However we do have the option to disable re-voting in polls, perhaps we should try it out? How do others feel about this? I'll put up a poll :)

(edit: I said I'd do one regarding the screenshot sizes as well, will do that after)

Back to the competition, le_harv has replied with the theme for July...

Intermodal

An exercise in seeing how containerisation has changed freight transport in the past decades. Get stacking! :D

I personally do not change my cast vote for the screenshots. But it's not the first time I've noticed this trend that you've written about. And I hate to see it. Because, too, stopped to participate in this topic. In my opinion, if a person has already voted, then let it remain so. And the realistically promote certain winners not very is true.
I think so - let everyone vote only once for a screenshot without the right change decisions. Another thing-remove the ability to vote for your screenshot. This is not technically correct.

We cannot remove the ability to not vote for our screenshots. And i don't see the problem in doing it, as anyways now there's 2, sometimes 3 more votes to come with.

However, i do hate this behaviour of people that are first sincere with their own choices, then change their votes to make someone else win. I did cast my vote for you and i kept it like this.

There even are people who look first at the poll results, and then vote for those who have the most...

Great contest. Congratulations le harv. Excellent entry and a fine new theme. :D

I never change my vote. I'm all for vote once and be done with it, but irregardless, I will always vote.

@ Emperor Jake - Amazon ran out of boxes for your order for one small bottle of super glue. Hence the 40 foot container in your driveway. :mrgreen:

Unfortunately there's no way to control that, you'll just have to go by people's word and there's no guarantees there :twisted:

I've put up the poll, you'll notice you can't change your mind once you've voted now. Thinking about it, I'm in favour of this decision as well as it'll make people put more thought into their votes before they cast them. I'm actually surprised people didn't bring this up earlier if they see it as a problem.

If that is indeed an issue that some people change their vote after they have seen the current voting-results to "rig" the outcome, than I also support disabling re-voting.
For the record, i also never have changed my vote after I submitted it.

Wow, I'm blown away, didn't think I had a chance against the superb competition I was up against. I suggest buying lottery tickets. I'd even go so far as to say that surely England will win the World Cup now!

Thank you for the votes and the the competition, I look forward to all the entries for this theme. Good luck everyone.

Congratulation to the winner "le_harv:" and also to too all who take part in the screenshots.

Like the choice for this months theme.

I agree we should not be able to change our votes.

Cheers all

I will freely admit that I changed my vote. In fact, I changed it several times. I changed it for two reasons. First, I would prefer their not to be tie votes. I changed my vote so as to better push for one winner rather than a split win. Second, given a great submission between a player who has won before and a player who has not won before, I tend to prefer to favor players who have not won the competition before. We have many users on the forms who have participated in this competition for a long time. I would like for many more people to participate, and would like for those people to feel like they have just as much a shot at winning as the veterans, as long as they're submitting quality entries.

Why was vote changing a thing, anyway?

Conveniently close to a body of water, a factory is served by a LARGE intermodal terminal. Trains unload grain, livestock, and transfer cargo to the terminal where things are shipped out by freighter through sea and through land via trolleytrucks and trains
