Only 3 of the 9 posts that were submitted are valid. The others are about mutual funds, some cloud apps and a two line post. Undecided

Most of the post submitted for edition 1 are invalid. Innocent

Ranjith

'Not yet submitted entries' are not valid Innocent

is it that no topic got more than 5 votes or .....,

Ranjith
from hyderabad
7 years ago

It shows only recent voters.

Laughing

Laughing

where do we see all vote count. there ought to be a tab of no. of votesLaughing

this means which topic is winning remains a suspense till announced. wowLaughing

Ranjith

Yes Cool

May be this is done to prevent people from getting influenced by the vote count! Laughing

Also to prevent ppl asking others to vote for their ideas to defeat a higher voted idea Smile

Ranjith

You can ask for votes on this thread ( either directly or indirectly Tongue out) ( till the time someone comes and says 'Not allowed' ) Tongue out

Those who liked my idea 'XYZ' do vote for it.

'XYZ' idea is cool. 

Submitted the idea 'XYZ' 

Cool

Laughing voted for xyz,

now what people gonna write for xyzLaughing

Why am I feeling that only the recent 50 ideas are being displayed? Innocent

@ Renie Innocent

It currently shows 56 ideas Tongue out

NSV I think it has been fixed Cool because when I posted the above reply, the topic 'Describe 5 things you miss about the 80s! #GoodOldDays' was not there and I remember voting for it. Cool

There should be some incentives for the top 3 bloggers (ranked by indivine votes). The best incentive could be of course, as ND suggested above, that the post be published in a newspaper. And I would suggest, the next 2 best posts be put up on indiblogger site itself with prominence (in some parts of landing page of the site). That would be promising enough I guess.

I think the only caveat here is selecting the best posts, which is a headache the IB team would not want to have Tongue out

I detest vote count to be factor for post selection of any sort. It will drive nasty vote garnering tactics.

@RioDe: Yeah true, I too don't like indivine votes. But then choosing the best posts will become quite a difficult task for indiblogger team.

I'm against the indivine votes being a criteria  as well.

This is a great initiative Renie, kudos to the inditeam for this!!

If anyone missed this from the IndiSpire page, ''Check the IndiBlogger homepage everyday for the latest IndiSpired posts!''

I guess there are changes coming up on the Indi Home Page as well!!

Shantinath Chaudhary

I can't notice anything unsual on the homepage, even thought the Indispired posts have already started coming.?

What is it? I didn't get it Cry Kindly somebody please explain it to me Embarassed

Every week an idea will be selected out of all the proposed ideas by IB'ers. You have to blog about it and submit it within a week

Fairy Princess
from Delhi

Ok. So it's like a prompt that's selected by IBers?

Yo, one topic selected by bloggers by votes and participants write on that. Nice concept.
Within 15 minutes a topic for next week will be announced.
I think top two or three ideas should be selected for writeup on any one or all, as per liking. To some one idea may not appeal much.

hmmmm maybe...i was completely lost after the first few in the 2nd edition...as the list kept growng my head started spinning

Lets see how this rolls. It is still in budding stage.

There should also be a 'Renie choice' topic. Money mouth

what about my choice topic bro.Laughing

Ranjith
from hyderabad
7 years ago

Ranjith choice, Rio choice also Money mouth

Forum Heros' choice. That would increase forum activity as well. Wink

Looks like renie has listened to you. Only 10 ideas displayed now for the 3rd edition

Ranjith
from hyderabad
7 years ago

You checked it at the time when exactly ten ideas were submitted. Tongue out

hehehe, true, I submitted another idea just to check if it came up or not.Laughing

Opps..its a coincidence...what a great one Tongue out

I wish there was an 'Vote down' button for ideas. Undecided

I donot think it is of any use, just ignore rubbish ideas.

i think report tab in topics may be one option. explicit words of Adult nature, is it allowed or ..., this should be also clear.  

Posted for edition-2  ( #BackFromTheDead ) Smile.  Think I am the first to post.

 But my post is not yet visible under Indispire edition-2 ?????? Undecided

 The Indispire page shows that there are no posts under this edition as yet. Wondering why??Innocent

Looks like there is some bug. Entries under 'Waking up from the dead........' get posted only under 'Weird' and not under 'Waking up from the dead..........'

@Renie, could you pl see?

Very fast saket
Mail problem at indi@indiblogger.in

Smile

Thanks Rio. I raised a ticket. Should I mail too?

Renie Ravin

Hey Saket - yes there was a bug, and it's been fixed! Smile

Thanks Renie, that was fast! Indifast!Smile

However, just an update... the 'View Posts' button doesn't take to the page displaying posts. You may like to fix that too.

This button too is fixed now.Smile

looks you are the first to be back from dead, and alone, lets see who gonna join you nextLaughing

Why the Idea I propose on Indispire gets fewer votes?

Are the numbe of votes visible to the original poster? Innocent

 

Nandini Deka
from Bombay
7 years ago

we all can see it, dont we?

No, we can't. We can see only upto five votes. We can not see the exact number of votes, even for our idea.

Ranjith
from hyderabad
7 years ago

Thanks Saket. I didn't submit any idea. So, I wanted to know if the original poster of an idea can see the votes received for his idea. 

Ranjith
from hyderabad
7 years ago

But you can keep track of the number of votes received by each idea by noting down the voters list once every few minutes. Cool

You can also write a program to automate the task. :P

very awkward Rajith didnot post any idea, but only votes for them.

Ranjith

At 10PM every Thursday, the next edition activates, and the idea with the most votes is selected. In the case of a tie, the IB server selects one at random.

Earlier it was, 'IndiAdmins select an idea' to break the tie. Innocent

Laughing

Laughing

there is a bug again, unable to vote at indispire posts

bug still there. voting for posts submitted at indispire  doesn't pass through. 

congo"s Shruti on your idea winning and truly, at first glance I wasn't much  attracted by it. but when I plunged, I am glad I opted to write on this theme. I am enjoying my writeups.Laughing

I rarely log here.. sucha  coincidence, i visited the thread or else I would have missed this.. thankie.. and I wrote this prompt because I have often felt like I woke up from the dead,.. thanks to my endless "death dreams".. I've enjoyed reading your opener :)

Amazing initiative. It was high time I got more involved in Indiblogger activities. My lifestyle blog was in hibernate mode. Hopefully I will find some inspiration here to post more often. I already see interesting topics. Posted one of mine! et's see what happens. 

Kudos to the Indiblogger team for always doing the best to help us bloggers!

Welcome onboard Ritu,

Waking up from the dead and watching how life unfolded without you.. Is your lover remarried? Is your mother over your loss and likewise. #BackFromTheDead Damn, I am half way through this and I am crying like a 5 year old who is lost in a trade fair or something... I think the response to this edition will be the longest post in my blog. CryCryCry 

yo, waiting to read your post.Laughing
