The caucus discussion has run dry, so let's move on!

The entries may be found here.
The ten criteria by which they ought to be judged may be found here.

Polls close February 29th. If you vote for your own hold, it doesn't make you a bad person. After all, maybe it was the best one. In the event of a tie, we will hold one or more runoff votes between frontrunners until a clear winner is shown or a 1-1 tie occurs. In the latter case, an independant judge will be asked to break the tie with a final vote.

-Erik

You know, it would be pretty funny if everyone voted for the last option.

I suspect there's only a handful of people that have made the substantial effort of looking at the seven holds and forming an opinion. So I put the last option up there as a little joke, but also to cut down on uninformed votes.

That's why I added that "View Results" option. Maybe I should just rename it to "I have absolutely no opinion, but still I must vote!" ;)

Yeah, I guess I'm being redundant. Okay, let's just call it a silly option then.

It does have a meaning though.
Then you can see how many that don't have an opinion.

This is my last ditch call for votes! Only two more days!

Vote for me! Vote for me! Vote for me! :D





Seriously though, two days left with the voting. If you haven't tried out the Speaking Grounds yet, get to it. If the task of trying out all seven seems a little daunting, at least try out the three frontrunners, #1, #5, and #7.

If anyone thinks it isn't proper poll etiquette to announce the leaders, tell me and I'll edit that out. In any case, vote!

Well, "I don't have an opinion" is also up there among the leaders...

Man, imagine what would happen if that option won. They'd never be able to choose what item they want from the DROD store.

Wow, I flaked on this one. Let's say the polls closed today instead of the 28th. If anyone objects to this slight change in rules, I'll see if I can go back and figure out what results were for the 28th. But right now, they are:

Second and Third Entries - No Votes (Sorry, guys. You had tough competition.)
Fourth Entry - One Vote. (Heh. Did you vote for yourself?)
First, Fifth, and Seventh entries tied with four votes apiece. Which means we have a runoff poll. Look for that in a new topic.

-Erik

Are you sure you didn't mean four votes apiece?

Anyways, what will the deadline be for voting for the runoff poll?
