Hi Folks,

First of all, kudos to all codeproject authors, especially to authors whom I follow. You've been all an inspiration to everyone Smile | :)

I just got a quick question. I've been here for about a year and 9 mos. I've won a few article contest before but up until now I'm not sure how really the system selects the winner. I know about the voting system but I noticed how it is politically driven. I mean if you are a popular author and got many friends, regardless of article content, views and downloads, you will win.

Is it only me who noticed it?

My real question is how the voting get's validated? Aside from votes, does content, views, downloads help on winning?
