Are the ballots ready yet? How bout now? Smile

I've actually managed to read all the stories in a fairly good time frame. Kept the headaches at a minimum and wrote all my comments on a note book, just waiting for the ballot kinks to be worked out then I can vote before my brain forgets all about it!

The balloting system is now fully functional. Give it a shot.

Cool beans! Words in a green box is okay. Words in a copper box is bad. Let me know if you get any copper-box words and what you did to get them. Words above the page (in the green background) are bad too.

Thanks much.

Scotty

Urm, I don't think I got any copper boxes, I entered scores and notes on each story so as long as you got all stories scored, from bottom up in a row then it should be working fine.

THE RESULTS ARE READY!

New Tricks by Faceless_Fiend won with a score of 4.38

Vincent Newberry by Le Renard earned a score of 4.11

Small Town Strong by Amber Barnes earned a score of 3.09

Food by Samhuinn Blackhorn earned a score of 3.08

Burn: The Legend of the Last Howl by Azola earned a score of 3.04

Enemies or Lovers? by Kirk earned a score of 3.03

Star-Crossed Lovers by Kirk earned a score of 3.00

Thanks to everyone for their participation--both authors and readers.

One exciting development is that private comments are now visible to the authors (only) when they view their results page. I'll get this feature rolled back into previous contest results.

Scotty

PS: Princess, your ballots were the first this quarter.

I now have private comments for spring 2008. Didn't do a contest for winter 2008 and sent the private comments out in emails for fall 2007.

Currently ballot results are held in individual story results files, including the comments, and which I generated semi-manually. I need to get a system in place to auto-generate the results. I think I'll hold off on updating older quarters until I get this system in place.

I also hid the text of the stories for spring 2008.
