Meet A New Voting Engine For InterSystems Contests!

Hi Developers,

You asked for it – we did it!

We are introducing a new voting engine and algorithm to InterSytems Contests which you can try with the current contest – starting next Monday!

You can select 3 projects now: the 1st, the 2nd, and the 3rd place upon your decision. This is how it works for the Community leaderboard:

Community Leaderboard:

Place Points
1st 3
2nd 2
3rd 1

And there will be more complex math for Experts leaderboard, where different levels of experts have more "points" power:

Experts Leaderboard:


1st 2nd 3rd
VIP level in GM, Moderators, Product Managers 9 6 3
Expert level in Global Masters 6 4 2
Specialist level in Global Masters 3 2 1


Experts' votes will also contribute 3-2-1 points to the Community leaderboard too.

This is how it works:

We hope this new system will be fairer and you'll have the option to give your votes to more projects that you like.

Comments, suggestions are welcome!
