As an aside it is my perception that since making the vote 'blind' the result is far closer - which is a good thing. I perhaps need to go back through past polls and properly analyse . However interested to hear others opinions?

Don't over analyse it, John! It's a good thing the vote is blind! The results do show it! Keep it like it is! I really like it!
We're all in front of the screen on the last day of the month now! :lol:

I think it was a positive change - now that it's blind, it seems to have taken away a lot of the tactics, gamesmanship and posturing about votes, timing and the results.

I like to think, perhaps a bit naively, that in doing so it's become more fun and less competitive and contentious.

I like the new system, it probably takes "going with the flow" voting out of the equation, and makes the whole process a bit less stressful for entrants who have put blood, sweat and tears into their bikes.

I do think that some kind of tie-break might be a good idea though, otherwise in the (admittedly unlikely) situation of say, a 10-way tie, it will cost you a small fortune in subscriptions! There could be a consolation prize for tie-break losers?
