    Voting on competitions

    I have been entering the comps on a semi-regular basis, and voting as well.

    Just lately, when I go to the competition section, there is text in orange "There are one or more competitions that need your vote!"
    but there are actually none left for me to vote on am I missing something?

    I'm seeing the same thing from time to time, but don't think anything is missing.

    I get the same. I thought it meant I haven't voted in some - ie, not all.

    But if you reckon you have voted in ALL, then I am not sure. Perhaps there's a stray cookie somewhere...??
    Just log out of AP (but stay in browser), then try a Ctrl-F5 to clear cache. It is the same for ?most? browsers.

    If that doesn't work AND you're SURE you've voted in them all, then Rick will have to advise.
    CC, Image editing OK.

    It could well be inaccurate at the moment as we build the Photo of the Year behind the scenes.

    Also, remember you have to confirm your votes. So if you vote, then on the next screen you do not confirm, your votes will not be lodged. It is not uncommon for people to forget to confirm their votes. It also happens at times when people enter a competition, that they lodge the entry but do not confirm it on the next screen. So the entry sits there but will not be part of the actual competition, unless they confirm it.

    And the one final thing that can cause it, is a competition with no entries. If a competition does not get any entries, the system assumes it has, and has a null poll sitting there. As there are no entries, you cannot vote on it. Once the originally setup voting period expires, the comp is removed from the voting system.

    I get that same message after voting when there are no entries in the Beginners or intermediate sections...
    Goes away after a day or two (still makes me go back and look though )
    If you replace the 'W' with 'T' in When, Where and What, you get the answer for each question.
    CC more than welcome. Remember, I can't be offended so go for it. Feel free to post your ideas with an edit if you have time. Thanks in advance.

    This is the definitive answer which Rick mentioned and something Kym might look at.
    It happens only when a comp is divided into skill levels and only when any given skill level gets no entries.
    So comps are telling me (and all of you) that I still need to vote in one more comp this week, but there was no entries in Beginner skill level so I obviously can't vote.
