Why are people giving Likes to entries in a competition before the judging?

In my case, a like can be for the post, rather than whether the photo is the best match to the week's challenge . If this is wrong, in future I'll keep the likes until after the voting is closed!

There's no rule about it that would make it wrong. The rules for weekly competitions were written before Likes were possible. It just seems to me that giving a Like is close to making a comment. Showing that you admire a photo might influence others' votes or (in other competitions) the host's decision.

The polls are closed, the results are in:

1. (tie) OldCrow and elfieh (9)
2. OhioHick (7)
3. NixEre (5)

The tiebreaker goes to OldCrow since I had to Google the words in his title to understand what he was saying.

Great set of images!
