I voted for night_wrtr, Jmack and m3m, but I could have easily chosen another 3 and still consider them 'best'.

And Eclipse, there was a whole month between when xia posted about there only being 9 voters and the end of the poll, so maybe there were more.

I voted for night_wrtr, Lanko and tebakutis, but it was hard because I had voted for several of the others in their month.

I was also sorry about apparently few votes, as even though there were finally 13 voters there were 12 stories submitted. Some people may not have actually read this thread though.

This particular point has been bothering me in the monthly voting. I am pretty certain that 3 nonwriters, including myself nearly always vote on those entries.  Am I right Eclipse and ScarletBea?

This seems to imply that some writers expect to be voted for without voting in return. I would really appreciate all writers letting us know in the monthly voting threads when they have voted, as some already do.

I'll admit I actually forgot to vote...  :(  If it's consolation I would have voted for Goldenfoot too.

Damn, I've been forgetting a lot of things lately...

Fantastic, @night_wrtr!
Excellent story. Sorry I'm a little late to the party.

If the forum was working properly, I would ask for something like that internally, hehe

Oh, I'm going to play with the Calendar, see what's there...

Congratulations, night_wrtr! Great story!  :)
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.
