While doing my Best Set Competition votes today, I noticed something I had already somewhat seen coming. Over half of the Sets I could vote for were not Blue at all, or had only small parts beeing blue. I had already seen some posts on Instagram of people sharing their entries, so I knew some people completely disregarded the Theme, but I did not expect this many people to ignore the theme entirely.
Sadly, if you are presented with 2 Sets that both disregard the Competition’s Theme, you have to give one of them a vote regardless, even if you don’t want to. I personnally started voting for the Set which I thought would get less votes by other people in such cases, in hopes of having other people vote for the other set so neither set can get alot of votes, but I feel like this won’t do much to combat the problem.
This is why I would really want a “Neither Set fits the Theme” or similar Button, to not give votes to a Set which doesn’t fit the theme at all. This button would simply skip the 2 Sets and present you with new ones, as if you would’ve voted normally (it’s up for debate if it should count towards your 25 vote limit). If a set is deemed as not fitting the theme a lot, it could also get disqualified, but I don’t know if that is neccessary.
Thanks for reading my topic and please let me know your opinion on it!
