It's time to vote on June's Writing Contest: Random Wikipedia Article.

We got 12 entries this month, most on the very last days - as usual ;)
Thanks to all of you for participating!

Please read through all of the entries in the submission thread and place your votes for your three favourite entries in this thread. You won't be able to see the vote breakdown until the vote closes, so spread the word for others to come and vote! We do ask that if you entered, to vote for someone else.

The key for the numbers of votes is this: 1-5 entries: 1 vote, 5-10 entries: 2 votes, 11-15 entries: 3 votes, 16-19: 4 votes, 20-25: 5 votes, 26+: 6 votes

Note for @m3mnoch:
When you do the usual summaries, could you also add the title/subject of the wikipedia article, please, since that's one criteria for the judging? Or is that too much trouble?

Aaaaand voted.
Everything I wrote above is pure conjecture. I don't know what I'm talking about.

I'm a perfectionist but not very good at anything. That's why I rarely finish things.

I'm having so much trouble deciding... each story could be voted for on all different criteria...
Oh well.

So far no story has more than two votes, so every vote has a huge impact!

Voted! Would have really liked to have voted for one more, but I'm happy with the three I chose.
