This is all just to get popularity and get CR name out there and they reward you with a one year membership. You spam your friend and promote the site and they reward you. I hate the use of using Facebook to gain anything and spam your friends to win something.

Two huge flaws with this. Those who have 1000s of friends will win.Those who have facebook just for personal use cant win, so this contest is very flawed and very unfair. Also someone could have a really lame or bad costume and get a ton of votes and just abuse the system just to win.

For example: I could do something really lame and just put face paint on and have 1000s of people vote for me and win. I put no effort into the costume but yet I got the most votes. Then there is the other guy who puts a lot of thought and effort into there costume and spends time in it and does a great job but only gets a few votes because the only have like 100 friends on Facebook. You see where the major problem with this contest is. This rewards greed and not creativity. People should be rewarded for their effort on the contest and the costume not based on just the number of facebook friend you have and only that.

I hope someone on staff reads this and maybe consider the rules change.

Nope, still not joining Facebook. Never will. I hate how these days Facebook is required just about everywhere :/ At least give some alternatives.

(Not to mention popularity contests have NOTHING to do with actually good costumes, but yeah, cheap advertising)

I find Facebook contests somewhat grim as it is. But winning by numbers? That's going to leave it as the most-networked and most-promoted that wins. That's going to discourage a lot of people COMPLETELY from even trying to participate in the contest.

I second this! It's SO not fair that all of CR's (And most other website) contests now involve some Facebook option...

Yet again, another contest that hasn't been thought through.

Dear Shinji/CR,

Please stop this laziness and reliance on FB, using the Like button is one of the most ill-conceived ideas for choosing a winner yet. Not only will those people who have loads of friends and are members of lots of groups (and other message boards on the Net) have an advantage, you are excluding fans of this website who choose not to have a FB account from entering.

I hope you keep this in mind for future competitions.

Regards,

Para.

That is a good point but, actual peers would be likely to appear on facebook friendships, so perhaps it helps to have genuine costume pics. Facebook being the only option is absolutely unfair.

Maybe I'll post them up, but I doubt since I don't post pictures in public

Now I'm torn. Do I put on my crappy $30 costume and then tap my hundreds of FB friends for likes, or do I keep paying month to month?

Too many whiners complaining about it being for Facebook. It's certainly more fair than on here.
