Congrats to all the winners. I pegged 2 of the 5 (Mr. Coo and Non-Livingstons)... incidentally, I've pegged 2 of the 5 in ALL THREE MONTHS of voting so far. For February, I had my #1 and #3 choice end up in the actual top 5... But for March and April, my #4 and #5 choices ended up in the actual top 5 both times.
This wasn't really a coincidence, though, as I have started to use my top 3 for the underrated things I WANT to win the most but realise won't (so I try and give them as many points as possible), and save the bottom two slots (#4 and #5) for popular stuff that I enjoy as well... but I don't think will have much problem winning a spot in the top 5. Both months I've voted in that manner, I've been correct in that assumption.
In any event... One last thing about the Kitten Cannon thing:
Like I said in
back on 5/4/05 @ 04:34 AM:
"Speaking of issues... I don't know if you read the posts from the guy earlier in this thread (page 2 or 3) who had a frontpage movie on 4/1, but it's not in the running for this months' awards.
In addition, did you (or anyone else besides me) notice that Kitten Cannon is up for the April Awards after it was already up for the MARCH Awards?
It was submitted on March 30th, IIRC, and it must have gotten into the March Awards with a daily award... and then gotten into the April Awards with you frontpaging it on April 1st (or something similar).
Do you or liljim know how that happened, and why the poor bastard earlier in this topic got shafted (he can't vote, either, but I'm sure he's more concerned about his movie not being up for the voting).?"
So... I saw this situation coming, and I'm sure I'm not alone. I'm just happy that steps have been taken to ensure such double-candidacy won't be happening again.
Had Kitten Cannon actually WON for March, then I'm sure Tom wouldn't have left it at #5 for April as well, so it's not that much of a controversy.
More important to me is the OTHER thing I wrote about in that post 10 days ago: someone who got their movie on the frontpage on April 1st wasn't able to vote in the April contest, and more importantly... their flash wasn't featured as one of the flashes we could vote on. I hope THAT gets fixed, too. ;_;
