I agree... no one has accused anyone of fraud just as no one has accused anyone of blatant elitism. It's all just a misunderstanding.

However, something I deleted but will ask now is when has a similar voting system come up before? Was it ever suggested in older contests where the entries only came from a few well known builders? Was it asked in the last contest where a lot of people came out of the shadows to post MOC? I just want to know, for reference, before I make any conclusions about it.

I am however slightly offended by comments such as:
    "not many of the voters like my entry! A sad day for creativity indeed"
    "I have suspicions because Don and Morgan's votes are constantly only one vote apart"
    "Too bad Darkkazmo doesn't have much a chance now though. / Yeah, I voted for Darkkazmo's too. Poor Joseph, never wins anything"
    "Hmmm, interesting and funny results! Next time for future contests, I'd prefer seeing each voter claiming his or her vote..."
    "when deserving MOCs run low on votes and when certain timely voting patterns occur (PM me for specifics), it is natural to question the nature of the voters"
    "winning isn't much of a concern here, not around here anyways"

It just seems very disrespectful to all of the builders, and to the FBTB community to say such things.

Applause, just go ahead and make a big deal out of it, it's like gonna make a big difference.
If you are offended buy all those unrelated comments, I'm just offended by your very mature actions!
Why people are just so edgy, it's like somebody is trying to hide something.

I was the first person to congratulate Morgan and yet I'm treated like I'm the one who's sucking the fun out of it.

Somebody lock this thread please before I go really mad.

Woah woah woah, everybody, calm down. I'm putting a fire-proof blanket over this for the time being.

Allow me another moment to address the alternative voting style that was proposed earlier.

I honestly don't want to change the way that votes are tabulated. As imperfect as the phpbb polling system is, it's the best way. These building contests are for the community, and the community should decide who has the better model. And as such, the community should be able to see the results at any given time.

Plus, any other way would just mean more work for me. Razz
