Piter, are You jealous of nobody likes Your comments? :) Make some job to make a quality grounding of Your vote and to promote it! Then You will have more "likes" than participants who don't.

I'm not jealous, read other comments on contest page. I just think that we lost spirit of this contest.

If dukascopy team wouldnt do anything to change something regarding LIKES system i am getting out of this contest. I can have 15 correct predictions and 0 incorrect predictions, but someone with 200 likes can be above me easily :((. I suggest them to apply the same system from Trader Contest as regards popularity points

IF You will make 15 correct and 0 incorrect predictions and give valuable explanations of Your voting You will definitely win the contest. For info: DC contest team has no plans to change current "like" system. So to participate or not to participate is up to You. Continuation of the system of Popularity points from trader contest currently is very questionable and there is high probability that it will be eliminated or at least heavily renovated during nearest months so Your example is not relevant.

Playing the fundamental Contest this week, impressed to see that 50% of the results of the contest account on the Popularity points.. seems too much for me.

Just my 2 cents.

I completly agree, its not fun to participate in a contest that the skill is the least important :(. In my opinion should be awarded a maximun of 50 points to the really interesting comments, not the ones copied from somewhere that talks about "fundamentals" when they guy is making his predictions 12 hours before the news starts.... the movement just after the news (10 min) is alot more based on the state of the market and true technicals, like liquidity places than the fundamentals.

The popularity should be maximun 25 points. There is no sense to have 20 people above me when his points are based on 80% on the popularitu points they have.

This response is my opinion is not very aproppiate. Some users have tried to explain their experiences with this tournament and I think both are clever. The thing is that the like system have enough weight to give the traders (who seem to have a lot of spare time) the motivation to contact other traders the same to make an agreement of the kind of "you vote mine and I vote yours" and we will do that every week. And thats the only thing!! If popularity points weight will be decreased to near 0 you will see REAL LIKES and mean nobody will like for other reason. Just a pure hearth like :)

Just an example of how silly is the current situation, look at this image:

And this you can find it in every prediction.

I dont know what Dukascopy wins with this system, I could understand it if the likes where from people outside Dukascopy (to attract posible new clients). I will not against if Dukascopy has his own reason to be like this, but what I will not tolerate is that you think that those likes are genuine lol, thats an insult to intelligence.

The Contest is very fun to play but the rewards you get when you see that 85% above you in ranking have done worst with their predictions is not fair.

Is this normal, that i don't see votes from ALL of users?
They give me votes and i can't "return" back some of them.
Is there some max number of votes/day?

This contest is not Fundamental analysis contest. This is a "like hunt" contest and nothing more.
Likes are still hugely over-weighted.
