- NO VOTING - GD Team will be picking Diaries of the Month

Hi Growers,

We decided to try out a new system  of selecting winners in our monthly competitions during the next three months. Our Team will be choosing 10 most outstanding Diaries and there will be no voting this time. As there was a lot of negativity around the contests recently and while we are working on the new system of selecting contest winners, we decided to SUSPEND VOTING.  Let's see how it goes. Do you trust us?

We want the awards to go to the right people, those growers who put time into bringing up their plants and keeping good journals and not into creating fake accounts and begging for votes. Our only goal is to contribute to the Growers community as much as we can.  

We will be checking EACH AND EVERY Grow Diary and we will be looking for:

1) Regulatory compliance (please read the rules before joining)

2) Informative Diaries (weeks, conditions, descriptions, comments)

3)Presentation & Creativity (photos, videos, etc)

Plants and quality of harvests DO NOT matter as much. What matters is a fully documented, fat rich explanatory DIARY. Any grow is a grow learned. This project is not about who's got a bigger ... BUD but about sharing, caring an helping each other. 

'Grower of the Month' will be changed as well, stay updated and read journals to know what we got for you next!

How does the whole idea sound to you, Family? Let's try it?

Peace,

GD Team

@MUDBUG, Whats more is that those few cheaters now will compete like the rest of us... So maybe all of the pointless energy they spent figuring out/implementing their cheating methods will go to creating better Diaries, and thus enhance the community they were cheating lol!!

Finally there will be peace. I support this change.

I am a fan of this testing period: It would be so amazing if we as a community could handle voting for our favorite Diaries (The GD's that most educated or highlighted a beautiful strain or that is just plain fun to follow) without it turning into this, but if we cannot manage this without maintaining Good Vibes only, lets make it so the control is outside the realm of cheating. @ GD, When contest winners are announced, Please include as much information from panel of judges as to what made these GD's win - If the community who is interacting on a daily/weekly basis with each GD is not selecting winners, we will all want to know why you chose as you did! Really hope this works out! P.S. If this test period turns out to be successful, Maybe GD could add to the formula for selecting winners a percentage that is user voted:

Example:
1) Regulatory compliance (please read the rules before joining) = 5% of decision

2) Informative Diaries (weeks, conditions, descriptions, comments) = 45% of decision

3) Presentation & Creativity (photos, videos, etc) = 35% of decision

4) GD Growers Votes = 25% of decison

This would still give us growers some say on the GD's we appreciate most, but not enough of a factor for people to waste their time cheating and being ridiculous!

:ok_hand::+1::facepunch:Nice! This will for sure elevate the level of detail and effort from the community in my opinion! Well done! :raised_hands: Cheers! Happy growing to all!

How about also adjusting the format so that a grower growing multiple strains won’t be out of the race just because he chose to include all of his/her strains in one diary.

@WhiteWidow, Had no idea the Beta was already available! Thx!!

@BudKingsGrow,am using the beta version. It keeps crashing

@WhiteWidow, GD is working on an APP that interfaces with GD site; This will make updating your Diaries much easier (Even if they have to be strain specific)

FINALLY! We are so ready to leave this site. The drama creates to much uneasiness amongst a group that has to constantly look over their shoulders and remain in hiding because of the illegal nature of what we all love to do.
It has gotten to the point that we have no real interest in even updating current diaries because this site doesn't seem like a safe place to be at times.

With that said - GD - thank you for taking the bull by the horns and attempting to regain control of your site.

We will hang around a bit longer to see how this plays out.

Best of Luck and Merry Christmas.

@GreenDiamond, Dont depart just because of a few bad apples!! We, The Cannabis Community, need every single site like this running strong!!! It's community based sites like this that develop true voice and true power to actually do something about legalization, but it takes the courage and stamina of each individual user to make it thus. Hand strong for our love of Jane!

For first, thank you to @GrowDiaries for being present and working arround this awesome Project.

It's very hard to tryout and work up new Concepts like this Diary-/Helping-Giveaway-/Communication-/FirstHand Information-/New Ideas and Products - Site. Nothing is unfailing and it works!:+1: thank you.

Your new System might work or not.. there are several + but also - factors, which speaks for a doubtful opinion.
For an example: What about prejudice ? (How much workers you are? Enough to vary who is voting ?)

Just a thought. Please test it for sure!

Another thought:

We are a Community, manged and powered by you, thats very grateful and i'm thankfullly but don't forget:
We are a Community, don't deny the chance to be a Community, with little restrictions like this.

The voting process is a cool thing for me as user, you can give your voice to the diary which is your own favourite created by this great people who participate.

I think there must be a "sign out" Button for User which want to leave as first thing.
This will be decrease the list of participants and give anyone the chance to focus on the remaining Diaries.
Then could be a "Report" Button placed in every Diary to report doubtful occurrences.
Presets to choose the Intention and a comment field.

It's just a question of script development and the efficiency in each of us, to prevent fakers and fake reports.

Maybe. Thank you for listening. :pray:

Great idea I think.
Will also give people a little more push to cram more details in each diary. Fair play
