Competition voting... discuss
« on: April 03, 2012, 11:57:12 AM »
OK peoples, the 'poll' method of voting for our monthly competitions seems to be working... based on voting for January's competition and the votes cast so far for March's competition :)

However there is a possibility that a 2 or more images draw the same number of votes :-\ so we'll need to decide what to do in that instance!  As I see it there are 2 options:

1.  Leave it as it is and declare joint winners, or
2.  Set up a second poll with just the disputed images to decide the eventual winner.

The problem with the second option is time... it'll take longer to decide the winner and the tie could keep rolling over ???  I'd welcome your thoughts on this issue and I'm always open to alternative suggestions....  discuss :)
Chris :)

You'll just have to think of something else to toss.
