A network to share best practices for children with special needs
I ran into similar issues. It seems like the same thing happens with they try to LIKE the pic.
I'm finding it is more of a frustration for anyone wanting to vote which is defeating the purpose if it is to drive membership. I think it would be more effective if people could vote without the membership. then they may be more willing to explore the site, see the benefits, and want to become a member.
For this particular contest we are asking that members vote through comments. As a network and a company we do many contests throughout the year both here on www.myspecialneedsnetwork.com and our Facebook page. Almost all of our contests are random. In fact, this was the first contest we have done this way since last year. We were trying to put a different spin on our contests because it is fun to hear from members and to see the support networks come together. We do love the suggestion about allowing likes to be the voting system for future contests.
The reason people need to become members of the site to vote is because this is our only way of screening people to make sure they are not spammers. We also would not want anyone making inappropriate comments and the only way to manage comments is to be able to monitor and remove members if they are being inappropriate.
We agree that we do not want members that don’t want to be here and it is very easy to unsubscribe. Feel free to pass the following directions onto your friends and family for after the contest if they no longer want to be members. Again, we only ask that they become members to vote so as to allow for the screening process.
Thank you for joining My Special Needs Network and we do hope that you stay members and continue to enjoy the blogs, contests, and connections that you find here.
