Dark Image of the Day Competition for 10/20/12

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7117/7115542045_6fc7671bf8_m.jpg

Welcome to the Dark Image of the Day contest. This contest is for those that don’t view the world through rose colored glasses and always have a dark cloud following them around.

We’re looking for the best of the alternative world. Think gothic and steampunk, strange and weird, mysterious and surreal, terrifying and horrible, and fetish and freakish. Anything that is out of the box of normal.

There are other contest for fashion, glamour and nudes so lets keep those entries in their respective places. Let’s make this contest the one that your mother warned you about .

So please read the entire theme and stay on topic with today’s theme

~~~~~



Halloween Themes until November 1st. Let’s keep them Dark and Haunting.

TODAY’S THEME: “Moods/Scared”

Tomorrow’s Theme: “Trick or Treat - Artist’s Choice”

THE RULES:


1 - DO NOT POST IMAGES - ONLY LINKS TO KEEP THINGS FAIR
2 - Stay on topic with the posted theme though artistic interpretation is welcome .
3 - Mark links to mature images (blood, bondage, nudity) with "18+"
4 - You may enter only 1 image per day, even if you have multiple accounts.
5 - You may only enter an image that you were directly involved in creating.
6 - You may not resubmit a given image to the contests for at least 15 days.
7 - Only one vote per person each day even if you have multiple accounts.
8 - No voting for yourself.
9 - No spamming others to vote for a specific image.
10 - No Vote stacking .
11 - Winning images will be retired from this contest.

HOW TO ENTER

Using today's theme as a guide, look through your personal images (on MM or elsewhere) and find one that best fits the theme.  Artistic interpretation of the theme is welcome but DO NOT select a non-related image just to post something.  Then, copy either the image link or page link and post it in the thread.  DO NOT USE [IMG] TAG TO POST THE IMAGE.  If it contains anything the MM rules deem as mature (blood, bondage, nudity, etc), then please mark the link with "18+".  You may also add a brief editorial about the image, if you wish.

HOW TO VOTE

Voting starts at noon PST (MM Time or 3pm EST) and ends the next morning whenever the votes are tallied.  To vote, simply quote your favorite entry and type "VOTE" below it.  After the day's competition ends, the host will tally the votes and post the winner of the day.  In the case of a tie, the host will choose the image that best reflects the day's theme that is not their own.

Congratulations!

I wish to thanks everyone for participating in today’s contest.

PBE Photography - Disqualified, Rule 10. It has the appearance of vote stacking. It’s PBE’s first entry into the contest and two of the votes for their image come from friends that are also new at this forum. VBFoto and lil miss natalie both reside from the same area and both have only post once and twice on all of Model Mayhem.

This is not my first entrance and you disqualify because the model(LilMissNatalie) voted, along with another "area" person. What an effing joke!!!!! Please take your contest and shove it! What about the others who voted for me? Show me real proof other than a hunch!

You right, it might not be the first time that you entered the “Dark Image of the Day” contest, however I do find it very suspicious that “Lil Miss Natalie”, who’s been on the Mayhem since April, places her very first posting on the forums to the contest to vote for the image that you took of her being choked out. This is also in violation of rule 8 on her part. Here is an image from her port showing the same make-up and photographic style as your entry, listing you as the photographer.

Also, VBFoto, as stated on his Model Mayhem page, appears to know you on a personal basis. Again I find it amazing that his second post in his ten months with Model Mayhem is a vote for a friend’s photo.

Is this real proof? I think that it’s enough to keep things fair for all and disqualify your image.

I also find it humorous that you send me a PM and then block me so that I can’t answer you in a private manner.
