(top) "You can vote for yourselves But I would hope in the name of good sportsmanship you'd vote for a short story you haven't written. But I'll leave that decision up to you." With respect, this isn't a satisfactory way of overseeing things. In future you should either have a rule that authors can vote for themselves, or that they can't vote for themselves. You should also say whether authors must vote for a story in any event, or can abstain from voting. You shouldn't leave it vague and ambiguous like this. Otherwise the outcome will be arbitrary rather than a level playing field. (<<< + Why am I shown as a 'junior member'? I am 47).
