    All five stories are very well done. This is not going to be easy!

    Regardless of whose vote comes out highest, no one should be disappointed with their contribution.

    Oh, by the way guys, hmm, I'm just thinking.. I wonder how many people just vote and don't bother reading it perhaps or looking into it fully

    I was thiking about the idea of letting just mods see who voted for what to ensure people aren't just voting because they can, I don't think that would work too well either...

    :/

    Any suggestions on this? This may seem insignificant, but I'm wondering how many do vote without reading the stories.

    We may make this a topic to discuss in suggestions- in fact,, vramoved

    Back when these first started, it was lucky if six people voted in the whole week.

    With 5 days of voting still ahead, it's way to early to call.
