Well something seems a little lost in the voting process.  I just checked my contributions and I noticed that something was declined that had 28 YES votes and 2 NO votes.  Now the 2 NO votes were the last 2 and the comments for both were related to essentially Nothing there. 

Now before I go any further, on this particular profile, all that was contributed by me was the COO.  When I submitted it, there was nothing else pending for this profile. 

**This is guesswork from here on**
As close as I can figure, something was submitted after my submission and approved before mine was denied.  I can only hope for the sake of fairness and equality of everyone's time, the person who submitted the same item, submitted a more complete profile.
**End of guesswork**

Now this was only the COO so it is no big deal, but I have come across about a dozen of these profiles where there is nothing to vote on.  I would certainly hope that if it is something that takes a significantly larger time (like an image) and voting was something crazy like 28 Y to 2 N, there would be some explanation as to the denied statement.

Maybe I am just off here, but there you have it...

In this case someone did submit a COO change, before you submitted yours, and theirs was accepted.  You can avoid this by checking the contribution history at the time of submission, which shows any contributions that are in queue.  You can see the submission that was ahead of yours in the contribution thread for that profile here.

In general this is pretty rare, but with the COO submissions, it's happening a bit more frequently for right now.

I could swear that wasn't like that before 

I have in fact seen that quite a few times and did not submit the profile change.  Thanks for setting me straight.  I'll just go back to browsing my collection now.
