@GrowDiaries...I will be more than happy to give any and all changes to the awards section a fair and honest review and I think it will take a collective effort as a community to dial it in and find and fix the loop holes...I was kinda uncomfortable with were the awards thread was headed last month and had kinda already posted but I have a few things to add...I think its fair to say that the community as a whole thinks COMPLETE diaries should only be able to run id its not an official rule can we please make it one...maybe someone could check the diaries over one at a time at the last day of entry and boot the ones that don't meet the critiria...more work on your end but would save some drama no doubt...we as a community could also have it a rule if you know you shouldn't be in it but accidently made it in by some kind of mistake that you can change you diary name to DISQUALIFIED so that the GD team sees it and knows to pull it...and like I said I love it here and no matter what GD changes we will all have to still use a little honesty and give them a hand from time to time when we can to dial this thing in real good...I think changing up the grower of the month award should no longer be for the most comment likes but the grower who gets the most likes on their diary in that month...it would make the term "Grower Of The Month" have a more true meaning...doesn't matter if you harvest or if your in the awards section or not...if you get the most likes on your diary in the month you win...this would be a pleasant shift from trolling for likes to good old fashioned growing...exactly what this site is supposed to be about!!!! At any rate with the changes you've mentioned and the new contests and giveaways I'm excited to see what you guys have coming and thanks for your work and dedication!!!!

@GrowDiaries, just that your adding a lot of stuff into it that most people don't have the means of doing ((I think it's a really good thing everything you've added like wet weight and dry Ect but I think most thing like ((SOLUTION TEMPERATURE, SUBSTRATE TEMPERATURE)) things like that should be optional so I can remove it..... I understand that's a part of growing and there will be a lot of people doing it? The I've yet to talk to anyone that dose this and I've talk to a lot of people lol... And I also think this new voting system is seriously daft.... Your changing your site based on people cheating and arguing instead of punishing the people that are being cheeky/aggressive or suspected of cheating.... The voting system works fine, regardless what you do people will always vote for there friends.... People will always ask for votes there is absolutely nothing wrong with this ((I asked for votes last time, but I reached out to people I knew and people I had talked to and asked them to look at my diary and if they thought my diary was worth a vote)) it was a way of getting people to look at my grow as when your not master grower or had a interview for all to see or you've not been about for ages or have a lot of friends on GD or have the time and knowledge to help other growers you don't get noticed.... I've seen a full 12 week grow with like 3 comments :joy::joy::joy::joy: like seriously... There is a simple option to all this.... Keep the vote system the same but make them permenent.... And yous (GD check every vote to make sure know ones cheating.. So people don't have fake hardly active accounts) If anyone argues or fights they get 3 warnings then delete there account, Fucking hell we're all adults but yet most are acting like kids some times, there is hardly anywhere you can click now with out seening people argue over absolutely nothing :neutral_face: :v::skin-tone-3:️:relaxed: "or why not remove the vote system, keep diary of the month and GD and the sponsors pick the winners," this would take away people trying to cheat people arguing and so on like asking for votes.... Ps. One stressed out dyslexic grower :joy: And yes I had to Google dyslexic for the spelling.... Someone pass me a joint lol
