  • I like the extra confirmation step. I have often finished voting and realized I have one in there I don’t like as much as the others, or found I missed one I was unsure of but later wish I had voted for. Now I can vote for all the ones I like and then trim the choices at the end with out worrying about missing one. It’s much easier than going back through all the pages; and then forward again to confirm. Thank you Spoonflower!

  • Great contest!! There were some gorgeous entries. Is it necessary to have the 2nd confirmation when voting? I feel like that takes too long and was a bit annoying. I’m sure you have your reasons, but isn’t one confirmation enough? Thanks for the fun contests and site.
