    Thank you! :D

    Right now it's making me a bit stressed out. I have never been on a vote-competition, and I have never liked them. And this one isn't well-constructed. Who's gonna read 60 applications with a 500+ word count? Not many. I wished we had the chance to make a short one for the voting part, so it's easy to get an idea of the different people and their skills and backgrounds.

    I'm thinking of changing my first section of the application to be more suited for a quick look through. But it feels a bit wrong to go and change things now.

    Thank you :D
    It's a shame. It should be set to random - with smaller windows, maybe in a grid, so you can get an easy overview. And with a small top10 in the sidebar or something like that, but only with the names, so you have to click to their application for voting (or find them in the random page, with everyone else :) )

    I wrote right when I came from work... after 1 hour in a train and hungry as a Lion :D
    I typed, typed, typed... t y p e d... Hit enter... Not enough Words... Bwah... I copied 1 of my post I was writing for BlackBerry phones... Hit ENTER... Not Enough Words... I said W H A T? ok... and I Typed "Sample text to fill 500 words" I copied it and pasted and pasted and pasted... and Hit ok :D

    I was reading some stories... I won't say mine was W O W... however with experience in writing about phone I am not even in the list of the guys who might win...

    That's all because of ...f...f... sample text :D
    Cheers, :D

    LMAO.

    500 is just too much. I copy/pasted right from the start and even I was surprised I didn't hit 500 words already a couple of times.

    My application was:

    Dear reader,

    I want to review the OnePlus 3 really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really bad!

    Thanks in advance, and have a great day.

    Hmm, the voting began just a few hours ago, and I notice lots of people complaining about how this is such a bad system. I completely agree with all of them! So, as my first act as a 'finalist peer reviewer' and 'OnePlus Lab Candidate', let me campaign for change. Citizens of OnePlus land, please vote for me at https://oneplus.net/lab/candidates/candidate?user=5610f8191aeaac89804fa17ea7a52af9db286d03 so I may be the voice of reason and sanity and make sure that the Lab never engages in voting based mechanisms ever again ... Like seriously, a vote for Karthik is a vote against voting!
