Well that was a disappointing turnout for the poll. Considering the quality of the entrants, to not even get 90 votes is rubbish. I can't even say that people saw that the winner was running away with the vote and so they didn't vote, because he only won by 14 votes. I don't know.
Anyway, this weeks winner, by the aforementioned number of votes and picking up his first CDC win in the process, was Skoul for his piece HeatStroke. Congrats Skoul and well done to everyone who entered.
Congratulations. It makes ME want to duck and cover . . .
Congratulations, mate! Well deserved!
And JR part of the problem on the low turnout could have been the new layout, which Jeff had mentioned had not been doing well.
And it only took a year and a half! Thank you to every one who voted and well done to the others on the poll. I have a feeling the low voting turnout may have been to do with the redecorating, but we have the old layout back now so hopefully there will be more voters.
Congrats, Skoul! Great perspective. The shading by the foot is the perfect touch that sells the angle. The costume is solid. That weapon on his right arm is very cool!
I agree with Cliff, that the low turn out was most likely due to the new layout. This happened once in the past also. It is kinda proven that when the Blog is moved to a secondary position in the site that engagement with it drops. New people, and the casual non-members that visit the site don’t go looking for it and thus interaction with our posts fizzle.
