I didn’t mean to offend you in anyway. I think maybe your taking me a bit to seriously.
I honestly feel that folks are going to vote for whatever website they feel is best no matter what I joke around about. By making posts about the friendly competition I can hopefully get people to actually look at the sites and offer some thoughts or feedback.
I have no way of knowing what others think of my website. The previous competition undoubtedly proved to be the best way for me to get opinions from other inspectors. I never got 1 extra vote after my postings last month but I got 2-3 responses that benefited my website greatly.
I never would have realized or even thought about several items that other inspectors brought to my attention due to my last postings.
This is a friendly competition and the whole point of a competition is to see how you fare and figure out how to improve. I realize it’s not a popularity contest. I’m not asking folks to just vote for me and be done with it. I’m asking folks to look at my site an tell me what they don’t like about it so I can continue to improve it.
I know peoples intentions are sometimes hard to understand from simply reading posts. I can easily understand where your thoughts are coming from as I to feel the best website should win vs. people getting their buddies to vote for their site.
I didn’t mean any harm. I was simply poking some fun into the competition with hopes of getting some extra participation. I can understand your point of view and I’m sure others may also have your point of view so I do apologize and I’ll leave it alone.
On the other-hand, there are some great websites in the nominations for this month and last month. Just viewing the websites in the competition has been very helpful for me. I am building a new website through HIP so getting ideas from all the nominations has been awesome.
Once again, I do apologize. Most of you guys have been unbelievably supportive and helpful with all my questions and concerns and the last thing I want to do is make enemies vs. allies of any of you, especially over something I meant to be as a joke.
Best of luck to everybody in the competition…
