One of these semesters when I don't have math I'll try this out. Until then, statistics will stay in the class for me.

but, but, but...  math is amazing!
*maths

in that case, is it "maths are" or "maths is"?
Maths is. It's not a plural - you don't say "physics are amazing", you say "physics is amazing" (in that context at least).  ;)

Wow thanks @Eclipse I feel very honoured!

I've never thought about whom I'm voting for each month, I base it solely on the stories not the authors. I've just had a looked and each time I've voted it's always been different people, so I have lots of favourites  :)

Voted in six contests up to and including Space Opera.

No of stories/votes: 28

No of authors voted for: 17

1 author 5 times

1 author 4 times

2 authors 3 times

Only voted for a winner 3 times

Surprised about my two top authors, as I don't really take account of them when reading, only when results come out. There are a few now that I can usually recognise the style.

Such a wide spread of my votes shows I like so many different writers here which is great. I might keep these stats up all the time now and look again in a few months time.

But who are they?  :P

Yes I think I'm going to do the same, keep a little sheet to keep track of stats as time goes.

Just saw this post. Fuck, I joined the forum shortly after you started voting, and Jmack came into my introduction post and recruited me into the contest during the Rogues month.

The Werewolf, Vampire, Girl story is still one of my favourite things I've ever written!
