http://www.ratemydrawings.com/drawings/ … 54506.html Even this artist recognizes she is not in accord with how its been explained artists get ranked... CAn anyone explain why someone who does one draw in over a year gets to be in the top 5 and others struggle to keep their position but have faithfully supported RMD over the years with participation and cant even break into the top 20? How can a member be the top in categories and yet post no recent draws in that category? I just dont understand this. Also what are the rules to awards? That also has turned in to a contest of favoritism and neglect of those not popular. I'd really like to understand this. It makes no logical sense to me in light of just overhauling the ranking system. Thank you
Why bother with a new ranking system if artists who have left for months or even years or drawn one quick draw months ago can come in and with that reclaim their top status? Its not fair to the loyal artists who have worked so hard with 100s of submissions to creep up a little bit only to be knocked back down by someone popular who has NOT earned their top positions. Why bother with a new ranking if you're gonna cheat that way? The rest of us have had to earn our positions by loyally staying and participating. Once some one has been gone as long as many in the top positions have, they should not be allowed to use their previous status as a spring board to the top of the new ranking. They have their positions in the all time ranking. One draw for anyone else would NOT raise them to the top 20 little alone the top 100. They should be starting over because of their non participation Wasn't that the purpose of the new ranking? To make it fair to those who have been loyal. Instead we just have a repeat of the past. Even in the new ranking rules it gives a 90 day mark but its not enforced. So I guess nothing will change here. The award system is as corrupt as the ranking system. RMD Get some integrity!
