In recent days I saw one sweep take my submission down 0.02 and then the next one gave me back the 0.02. I can't decide if I find that frustrating, or if I wish it did that more often so that I finally learn to just stop checking.

Many of us can become obsessive about checking the ratings of our current contest entries. Checking won't change the result and the final sweep can be drastic.

I thought Laurel had switched to quantum voting for the contests. So our observations checking the votes does influence the scores now.

A small sweep went through a little earlier. I think 3 votes on one story and 10 on the other. Not nearly what i expected.

Yes, I lost 5 and 3 and given how I got slammed repeatedly I'd expect to lose a lot more

Yup. I lost 4, jumped .07.

I'm betting at least another 5 disappear.

The sweep is hitting stories other than contest entries. Thanks to removal of one vote I may now be the proud owner of the biggest bombing target on Lit: a score of 4.93 on 15 votes. I repeat. Not a contest entry.

Congratulations to the winners!

Also to everyone else who got good ratings, great comments, many views or who is simply happy with the accomplishment (or anything else). In the end, only the number of views was a disappointment for me so I'm one of the happy ones.

Before my first (and only contest sweep) I was at a 4.63 and after the sweep and 29 votes removed, I jumped to a 4.88 (I lost about every 1 vote I was given) and then I was hit with a 2 on the final day (my only vote after the sweep) and finished at 4.87 which is not where I saw myself ending this contest. I thought I was out.

It's not even about the score. I'm more upset about the views possibly lost after I came off the New Story list than getting hit with the ridiculous (I say ridiculous, but it was my story) amount of 1 votes I was hit with. If my score doesn't jump like that, then I don't make the Recently Popular list.

This competition stuff is brutal. For you guys who do it regularly and for years, you've got some thick skin and a whole lot of respect from me. At least now I know what to expect in the future (minus getting fortunate enough to place).

Thanks for letting me play, it was a frustrating pleasure and congratulations to everyone.

Congrats to all who entered and especially to our winners. As near as I can tell from my tabulation, Chloe should qualify for a consolation prize for Sammi Woo. To the hundredths she was tied with PuckIt.
