Did any of you really expect them to keep their promises?

I'm telling myself over and over that they've unanimously selected all of my entries for the calendar and are trying to come up with how to break the news to everyone else ;)

I'd rather have them take an extra day or two to thoroughly look over everyone's screenshots. If you think about it, one day isn't really a lot of time - they must have thousands of submissions, maybe 20% of which we've seen posted on this thread.

Okay I'm confused... we need a staff member in here to straighten things out. I'm trying to be understanding about all of this but it just doesn't make sense to me. @CM_Aethon

 

I thought staff would pick the top 48 screenshots from all submissions, and from those 48, a new forum thread would be created, where we can vote on our favorites. Is this not the case?

Also, are we voting directly from this thread? Because according to your tweet, voting began yesterday, but we've heard nothing on this thread or forum.

If voting isn't starting... you guys need to tell us that it isn't starting (for w/e reason; need more time to review submissions, errors, etc), when it will be starting, and how it's going to be conducted.
If voting is starting... I guess it's safe to assume they're looking off of this thread. What about the people who submitted their pictures & didn't post on the forums? I posted mine here, so it's all good for me, but it doesn't feel fair that way.

Lastly, if you are conducting the voting process this way (directly from the thread), you need to take into account that the first few posts with screenshots will have more visibility and therefore more likes. Not many people will surf through all 14 pages of this thread to vote on screenshots, especially when there's so much chit chat in between. 
There's also people who will make multiple forum accounts to vote on their own submissions. To help lessen this, you could make the voting external on a site that only allows 1 vote per IP. I know this type of thing isn't fully preventable, but it'll make it more of a pain to do.

, and from those 48, a new forum thread would be created, where we can vote on our favorites. Is this not the case?

Our staff will pick the 5 best screenshots for each month and let you vote on the final winners to be featured in our 2017 calendar.

 

  • Prizes: Winners will be contacted via email with further details on how to claim their prize.
    • Top 12 Winners (Selected by Player Votes)
    • 48 Screenshot Runners-Up (Top 5 Staff-Picked Screenshots for Each Month)

 

 

They are going to pick 5 screenshots for each month to vote on. 5 x 12 = 60.

We will vote one of the five for each month.

Screenshot with the most votes for each month wins (12 winners).

The other four for each month gets runner up prize (48 runner ups).

 

 

 

 

Other than that, I'd assume voting wouldn't be on this thread. The voting will occur only have they announce the 60 screenshots they pick.

If they keep voting on the forums, they should add a minimum post count (like 5 haha ty) to vote to deter people from making accounts just to vote on. Otherwise, using an external site would be suggested as you said.

60 and 48, you get my point. It's 1AM here and I don't care about specific numbers. I read the OP, I know what the rules state... but things aren't going as planned. So until they show us the top 60, how are we supposed to start the voting process (like their twitter says)? Due to this delay, will we get an extra day or what? It's not a weekend either so they can't make that excuse. They need to hire someone else to manage their social media if they keep making mistakes like this.

Whoever is managed their twitter must have made a mistake. It's a really weird mistake though. Surely they've got enough communication within the company to know what's going on.

Just trying to help. You provided information and asked if it was right. I corrected it. If you don't care about specific numbers, then don't include them in the question.

That is where it went wrong. They posted that on twitter about 24hours ago. I don't know mate, but when you say : Will be updated later TODAY , then it's the 21st not the 22nd. And don't get me wrong, idc if they post it today, tomorrow. But I hate it when a company doesn't communicate to it's user what is going on. Communication is the key here, Kakao promises a lot, but barely any of it happens.

Voting forms are up, there's a link on twitter: https://twitter.com/BDO_News

EDIT: And I'm not in. I gotta say I'm kinda disappointed. I put lots of effort into this and I saw lots of rather subpar/mediocre screenshots in there. And also missed some other people's submissions from this thread that really really deserved to be in there. Wondering if these were picked randomly or by hand...?
