Didn't really know what to name the thread.
Anyway, it seems like in contests that have voting everyone who submits to the contest just rates everyone else's submission a 1. I think if you enter into a contest you shouldn't be allowed to vote on other peoples submissions. Only people who don't enter the contest should be allowed to vote.
It's not as big of a deal for bigger contests, but for small ones like the kombi glove with not too many people voting it makes a huge difference
