Question about steam sales

The games I want keep coming up for community choice and getting voted down. What's the chance it'll be a daily or flash sale anyway?

There's a chance.

flash is more likely than daily, but community choicers have been known to be flashes and dailies, and dailies have been known to be flashes and community choicers.

the problem with the community choice is the community is stupid. You see a good game for $5 and a crappy game for $2 (normally $5), and another crappy game for $1.50 (normally $2.50), which one wins? $1.50!

Or sometimes it's the percentage.... 40% off a good game, vs 80% off a mediocre game? 80% is better so I better vote that!

I don't even care I select all votes at random. Quick glance then click.

I might do that if I have no clue what any of the games are... Otherwise I try to vote for the best game out of the 3.
