Yet another low turnout for the poll to mirror the low turnout for the entries, but even so, this poll did throw up some surprises. I knew it was going to be close, but I didn't expect our eventual second place finisher to be the one challenging for the win, considering it was the most "standard" of our entries, but there you go. I guess people must have really liked it for this one.
And the second surprise comes from the fact that, according to my records (which admittedly do only cover Hammerknights and my own contests, so there may be a Jeff run contest I don't know about here), this is the first CDC win for our winner, which is amazing considering his Power User status. But then Herr D (who won with his piece Foggy Moonrise On Aelihoh) was never one for being conventional. So congratulations Herr D, and well done to all of our contestants.
Congrats Herr D!
Hey, thanx! I think you’re right, JR. I don’t think I’ve won anything besides a Pop Quiz or two and some caption contests on the blog. If this win and my OPMC wins tell me anything, they tell me that I’m more likely to produce a popular result with a stringent limit on my imagination.
*Congrats to Cliff for picking the most perfect variable item on hm3.
