      Default How to Vote?

      I don't understand the voting that is done. Can I go to any design and vote on it or are there only certain designs that can be voted on (front page?) and how do they get to the point of being voted on?

      Only can vote where it shows daily design. Look for vote for design and vote in there only. You can choose other designs in set if you want. After you vote you can see the points earned by click on the link Points for more designs
      then at the top click on your points earned. It will show there. Hope that helps.

      Brncpa, you are correct in that you can go to pretty much any design and vote for it. All you need to do is click on the link that says "vote for a design" and choose the design you want to vote for. You need to be signed in using your forum ID, but will be prompted if you aren't signed in already.

      The only designs that can't be voted for are those in the sets that are on voting hold. When a design wins the Daily Free PES, the entire set that it comes from goes on hold for seven days. This is done so that a larger variety of designs will be voted for.

      You have three votes per day and the design that gets the most votes by midnight Eastern Time US will be the free design for the next day. Then, the vote resets to zero.

      You click on the 'Hourly Free Hunt' to see the design. You then have several ways to go : if you recognize which set the design comes from,go straight to it, or go to 'Search' and see if you can find a key word that you think might be in the file name for that design's set, or you can go to the 'Design Sets' pages and go through them until you think you have found the set.
      Then, if you click the main picture, (and you are correct) you will see 'Free Hunt' in blue letters.
      Click this and you will see all the designs in the set. Look through them and you will find in bold black lettering 'You Found The Hunt Design!'
      Click the picture and you will see 'You Found The Free Design! Get It Below!'
      Click the picture and you will get the download file.

      It isn't as hard as it sounds! and the more you do it the easier it becomes - and you will get to know what key words to search for.
      GOOD LUCK!

      do you have to have a membership . I am not a member. I did find the words search, and design sets. There are really a lot of sets. Sounds like it could be hard to do, certainly it could take a lot of time. When you find the design, I guess you could say you really worked for it. Your instructions are very good. Thank you

      hm928, you do not need to have a membership to participate in the hunts. However, if you wish to accumulate points, you do need to have a screen ID and be logged in. Since you can make posts to the forums, you already have your ID taken care of. In addition to collecting points on the hourly search, one can collect points by voting for the daily design, making posts in the forums, and categorizing new designs (which is difficult as only 10 have that opportunity). Welcome to DBS... ...Stick around for a while and watch your points grow.

      thank you la cole, and motoandnutty for your replys. I am going to try the hunt, it looks like fun. I never could figure out how to get started on it, or if anything was required. I like this site very much, it has so much to offer.

      Motoandnutty and La Cole, Guess What? I tried the free hunt, and I got I got it. I am so proud of myself. But I could never have gotten into the hunt without your help. A big THANK YOU to both of you

      Way to go hm928! That is such a good feeling isn't it!
      There will be times when it baffles you, but there is sometimes help to be had from the ladies who hang out in the 'Hunt/Free Design Chat' that you will find if you click on the link half way down the DBS site pages on the left. (under Socialize). They have an unwritten rule that you don't just tell people where the design is, but they sometimes give pretty transparent hints.
      I look in now and then as I like making up cryptic clues, but my hours are 'unsocial' as I'm five hours ahead of the US here in the UK. and there aren't many on line when I am.
