What if instead of being able to give everyone a 1-10 rating, you were allowed to give out 1 ten, 1 nine 1 eight etc...
You wouldn't be able to vote one persons up, and if you made it so they had to use all ten of their votes or there vote didn't count I think it would be fair. Than the winner is the person with the most votes.
It's a good system, but it would need the ability for users to change their votes (in case they voted someone a 10, and then later viewed an even better entry). I could also see the limitation of voting for only ten entries being problematic for certain contests.
Well you could have as many votes as there were entries potentially, and I like how they have been closing the entry time then having voting, so say for the joss contest there were 40 entries, they could give you a 40 votes. But I figure that would take way too long if you made it so you had to use every vote.
