I think the voting may favor whatever's at the top and bottom of the initial nomination post. If I was feeling really frisky, I'd test it here (usability studies elsewhere support this notion), but there are too few voters for a good sample size.
There may be a little cross-pollination with the "Story" nominations/votes too.
Bo is consistently better than the votes reflect, IMO... Maybe we just share similar sensibilities.
A better nomination and voting app might be in order, but it would require a bit of web-dev time.
Much appreciated fellas. I would temper any ill feelings towards the fact that I was not to be included by noting that I had by far the most opportunities to show off my work (due to my position as art director, and Drabblecast's oft-used fill-in). I had nothing but chances. It was a worthy field, and I couldn't tell you an entry I would replace with something of my own. I look forward to another shot at it next year; save any honorary awards for after my death (August 2015, strangulation, Everglades, invasive python, 25 ft., nickname 'Big ol Bill')
