Concerns of the poll.

Based on the amount of people who voted (and didn't make fake accounts to vote over and over) fuckkcliche and I have decided to elect nitrogliceryna as the new graphic maker for estiloamor . We feel terrible about the poll because we know you guys really did try, and all the people who qualified were seriously amazing... But some voters were making fake accounts and we could tell by the "sign up date" in their userinfo, and honestly that's just unfair to elect somebody who got more votes just because one person was voting over and over again... It was either that or it was a popularity contest, and winning something like that wouldn't even feel right if you won; there wouldn't even be a point in winning or losing if it wasn't about the quality and hard work put into the graphics. They were all really good and I'm not just saying that, because I know how hard it is to make graphics and that's why I'm more of the layout kinda person.

When you begin something so small and have it suddenly just blow up in your face, you have so many people expecting this or that out of you and it starts to make you a little nervous... And I was extremely nervous about taking down that poll. I knew it wasn't right, but at the same time the entire poll was what seemed to be a "popularity contest" and honestly that's not what making graphics is about, and it hurt me to see people not getting votes because once again they were all so damn good! I know I made people sad or I pissed some people off, and with my entire heart I am sorry, because I know what it's like to feel like your work isn't "good enough" but I can honestly say that you all were amazing. Please be in my position, it really wasn't easy for me to satisfy so many people from the situation, no matter what I decided to do, somebody was going to get hurt and I'm deeply sorry... I just couldn't take it.

To all those contestants I want to tell you this, I honestly think each and every one of you should aspire to make your own community. You all have an incredible talent, and I can see you getting somewhere with it. I'm saying this with complete honesty. And once again, I am really, really sorry if I offended anybody.
