It's optional. Not sure if I'll go down this route every month but will certainly run it like this for the remainder of this poll along with the next one. .


We should have a vote - on the vote!

Personally:

10 post before eligible to vote? Thumbs up!

Voting progress hidden? Great idea. Posts like "Bob has taken an early lead, but Mick is storming along" at best are kind of annoying

It'll help make the result a proper surprise rather a disappointment with a cloud of suspicion, I'll say no more on that, but it always hangs around this competition

Tweaks are probably a bit late for this one, but I like 'em

-A user will need at least 10 posts before he or she can vote.
-The results will not be shown until the poll has ended.

Both sound like worthy amendments - get my vote for permanent application.

I agree-- good idea with the changes. It'll be nice to have surprise outcomes methinks. In the meantime, it's probably best to settle this mess by sending uncast votes to the Ultimate :)

I love being the catalyst for change :P :wink:
Seriously, good changes, John, though I'll miss utilizing my latest strategy for voting and manipulating the outcome. Gosh darn it.

Guess I can cast my vote now :D

oh, and I vote the changes be permanent, as they are improvements that address many of the recurring issues.
