It's time for a more legit voting system. Down with speed clickers!

There is a problem here with "speed clicking" to accumulate points in image duels so people can post lots of pictures. I notice many duels where the outcome doesn't make any sense given the huge difference in quality between pictures.

I know how to improve the voting system here. To discourage speed clicking, first increase the credits awarded for each image duel vote from 2 to 5. Next, structure in a 6 sec. loading time between pictures. Lastly, in each image superimpose a small click box that directs the viewer to "click here to vote for this picture." The box will randomly appear at different points around the edges of each picture. Therefore, speed clickers will not be able to rapidly click through pictures and will have to actually look before clicking. Hope you consider my idea, and I think it would make this contest more legit.

I agree, something must change, I like your second thought about the check box appearing randomly in different points around the edge of an image. :-)

Instead of just putting 2 images together and you pick the best one. There should be 2 images and a few boxes that can be checked for things such as best composed, sharpness,all around,etc. then take those results between the 2 and give the score for the 2. It might take longer 2 vote a duel but it would be more fair and make you really look at each picture.
