¡Felicidades! El cuadro seleccionado es maravilloso. Hubo trabajos muy destacados en esta ocasión, como siempre.
A mí me impresionó particularmente el colorido: desde la serenidad elegida por @edgarafernandezp hasta el contraste de @muelli y @callout-nina. Los verdes profundos de @yetsimar son una belleza muy femenina e intensa y el neón de @funtraveller realmen energiza. Cómo composición, me gustaron mucho los collages de @justclickindiva y de @doriangel, @apanuraboe @arunbiju969 y @fathud.
Gracias al equipo de #lmac por otra ronda espectacular.

Congratulations! The selected painting is wonderful. There were very outstanding works on this occasion, as always.
I was particularly impressed by the color: from the serenity chosen by @edgarafernandezp to the contrast of @muelli and @callout-nina. The deep greens from @yetsimar are a very feminine and intense beauty and the neon from @funtraveller really energizes. As a composition, I really liked the collages by @justclickindiva and @doriangel, @apanuraboe @arunbiju969 and @fathud.
Thanks to the #lmac team for another spectacular round.

Great works... Congratulations to all 👏👏👏


I voted for both @edgarafernandezp -- congratulations, of course, Edgar -- and several others ... but I notice that the actual tally of votes to determine the winners does not accord with what was done here. BY POLLING, there is a clear winner, and it is recorded on the blockchain how the community voted -- but @justclickindiva is all the way down in eighth place.

I take nothing away from @edgarafernandezp and his beautiful collage -- I say again that I voted for him. I do have a problem with being asked to vote, being able to READ, and then coming to see the winners and seeing this fabulously mismatched outcome. I have no dog in the hunt because I haven't made a collage for months ... but as a member of the greater Hive community, I MUST bring attention to EITHER the way winners are chosen needing to be better and transparently explained, OR the fact that this exercise in democracy is a bit of a farce. As a professional journalist by training and a non-profit board member in real life, I know a problem when I see one. I live in a country -- the very United States of America -- in which democracy is being played around with. I am not for seeing it played around with here on Hive.

LMAC is important to hundreds of artists -- enough to make up a neighborhood in my home city of San Francisco. For MONTHS and MONTHS, the same 15-20 people were winning ALL THE TIME. It is recorded on the blockchain. Similar weight can be seen in whose work is prioritized for the LIL, and whose is NOT. More recently, we have seen new winners -- but then we get poll and winning mismatches. Some of us in this community DO PAY ATTENTION, even if time to make collages is no longer available.

I have no personal bone to pick here -- I have enjoyed my time in LMAC, and even though I no longer have time to make collages, I enjoy seeing all the work others are doing and voting for many, many artists. Yet I REFUSE to act like I don't see the problems anywhere when a democratic process doesn't produce the results it presumably should ... and so I am bearing witness on the blockchain and asking for clarity and transparency here, for ALL OF US.

Hi @deeanndmathews.

Yes @justclickindiva has the most votes. However, the result (snapshot at the end of the poll) of the poll matches the winner ranking exactly.
Please note that voting is stake-weighted to prevent manipulation. We have been doing this for a longer time and it is explained in every poll announcement. See the text at the very top of the page.
Before we started doing this that way, whoever wanted to manipulate the poll could do it simply by using multiple accounts. Nobody would have been happy with that in the long run.


First of all, I appreciate your response. Danke sehr, Herr @quantumg.

"Stake-weighted" -- OK, I kind of understand that, but without a breakdown of what that means, it is still not completely clear, and I imagine that it is not clear at all to the average artist at LMAC. I THINK that it means larger HP means a bigger vote value as opposed to "one person, one vote" ... but that also means that it is possible that voting could ALSO be manipulated by a relatively few big accounts picking favorites. HOWEVER, I do know there is also some multi-account spamming on Hive that is not as obvious to the average Hiver who is not doing that, and that as someone responsible for a community, you may indeed see that behavior much more.

Even though I have a right to petition my government under the First Amendment, I rarely receive any response when I do ... thank you again. It may be to the interest of the community, from time to time, to do a post breaking down how it all works. Most people assume "one person, one vote" because IN THEORY that is how it is in real life.

Wow! There's some pretty rad stuff here :)

Will be following and building up to participate! 💥
