Advice on the Voting Process
Published on: 05.07.2017
Dear members of the Entrepreneurship Campus,
As may know, July is the last month you can submit your ideas and projects for the Youth Citizen Entrepreneurship Competition 2017. There is time until July 31 for getting your entry reviewed, accepted and published in the respective category. If you have questions about this stage of the competition, regarding the registration process or who can enter please find more information here or contact [email protected]
How to have a good start of the voting process?
The voting process officially started on May 15 for all the published entries. In the meantime, all the users that have submitted for second stage an idea/project that was or will be approved must publish it. There are many users, whose idea/project was approved, but they cannot find in the specific category and ask for support. You as the owner of your entry can change its status from unpublished to the public. Afterward, the entry will be listed among all the other published ideas/projects.
This is the time for you to start promoting your entry. We have explained in previous posts that you can find on the blog and news page, on our Facebook, Twitter, and Linkedin pages, how to promote your entry and what to do for being among the finalists. Find here how the ten finalists are determined.
You have to engage with other members, read their entries, and write meaningful comments, suggestions, and recommendations that can help them to improve their ideas.

What you should know about voting and commenting
Ask Questions. Do Not Judge.
If something about the entry you are interested in is not clear to you, please formulate your comment in a form of a question. Readers would also like to hear from you WHY you find an entry useful and interesting. Be positive!
Take your chance to engage in a constructive dialogue with entrants. You are encouraged to build community on the competition website.
Do not insult and blame
Insults or blame won’t be tolerated. They will be deleted.
A fair voting process
Now that you know how to promote your entry and get your friends to vote, you must also learn about some important voting rules. Users can only vote once a day from one individual IP address. We use a voting system with various security backup mechanisms to recognize whether or not someone has voted in a fair or unfair manner. Each attempt of vote manipulation will result in the disqualification of the entrant and the remove of his/her idea/project from the competition.
We thank you all for your engagement and wish you the best of luck with your ideas and projects.
