in our opinion it's best to not vote for yourself. If nobody does it, it's fair.

Wouldn't it be a good idea to state this in the rules? I don't think everybody would think of this.

I thought it was in there but we only said "please vote", so yeah, I'll add it, thanks. ;)

In the voting thread there's always this:
We do ask that if you entered, to vote for someone else.
I guess that kinda covers it...

Ah right, yes. That's what I was looking for but apparently I wasn't looking in the right place. Of course it makes more sense in the voting thread than the submission-thread. I'm tired...

I was looking in the submissions thread and discussions thread, so I didn't see it either.
