There are unfairities happening in the Undersized Urbanite contests.
Just like Kyle said, I feel emotionally attached to each of the houses and am so grateful for the contestants and their hard work. And that’s why this is very, very hard for me right now.
I am so sorry to all of the contestants, but voting has had to be suspended. It may or may not be opened up again, and the voting may or may not have to start over again.
It has come to my attention that there is a glitch in the system, and I am asking my voting server to evaluate the situation.
If they are able to re-adjust the votes per the rules of the contest, then voting will re-open and remain open for the duration of the 7 day period that was initially intended for voting. If they are unable to adjust the votes per the contest rules (3 votes per household, one vote per dollhouse), then I will decide how to proceed on Sunday.
I will update you all as soon as the situation changes. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
In the mean time, you can still view all of the contestants miniature homes here.
UPDATE: Voting has been re-opened. I apologize again for the need to shut down voting for the last 26 hours. After evaluating the options, it is best to close the voting at the originally scheduled time of 8:00 pm (EST) on Sunday, May 12th due to part of the prize package being time-sensitive.
Please remember to follow the rules of voting that were originally laid out: 3 votes per person, one vote per dollhouse.
Thank you for your patience.
