The Voting System

Published by at 5:31 pm under News

The BP voting system is up and running. To participate go to the creation space (under community).
You’ll randomly be given 3 options and you need to pick which one you like the most

Don’t stress out too much about which one to vote in. The system is created so that everyone gets different options and at the end of the day the best coats will be democratically selected!
When choosing consider what you’d like to use yourself as a GA.
Use the ‘Report Abuse’ button anytime you see something that goes against the BP rules, including draft horses, coats with two horses, etc.
When voting for coats you’re given 3 options, and you get to pick your favourite. You have 20 chances a day to pick between different coats, and earn 50 equus per vote!
I’m going to try to explain how this works so that everyone sees this is a really fair way to do it.

Each person is given the opportunity to order some of the coats from #1 to #6 (in this example there are only 6 coats, there were over 2000 coats submitted). This is played out on a MUCH larger scale with the actual voting system. I’ve even shown you how a few people voting for friends, or their own coats, won’t effect the outcomes.
Please remember coats are being placed in the rankings, those are not tallies of the number of votes.
Please also remember this is a really simplified explanation.
Using this method means that the best coats will rise to the top and the worst sink to the bottom. Each coat will end up in a specific spot in the rankings (don’t hold your breath for Howrse to release those rankings, can you imagine being dead last?). So if you have to pick between 3 you really like or 3 you really hate, it doesn’t make a difference, you’re changing their orders only very slightly.
At the end of the day Ow has said your place in the rankings won’t necessarily mean your coat will or won’t get through to be a GA. Admin is also going to pick out their favourites & makes sure all the coats are unique, and creative as well as beautiful.
Good luck!
