Recent updates to entries sorting had a negative effect on voting – Contest Holders started using voting to manage shortlisted entries, and downvoted entries that were originally upvoted – to narrow down their shortlist. Therefore we have separated shortlisting entries from voting.
Entries upvoted by CH-s are automatically added to their shortlist. To remove entries from the shortlist, CH-s have to click the Remove from Shortlist button, instead of downvoting the name. This way CH-s have a convenient way of selecting final candidates without affecting previously given votes and points.
