I haven't read them yet but 17 entries featuring The Dark Lord will trigger my 'suspicion' antenna.I can see a common style in a lot of the entries... there's a few of us hedging our bets I reckon
Maybe just set up two polls, but then it will be harder to track how many votes each person has castWe appear to have hit a snag. I am setting up the poll for later, and it appears that bthe maximum number of slots is 65. We are at 66.
I will contact the powers that be.
Fair play @elvet -I reckon we should go with whatever is easier for you to tally, so option 1; the curse of having a bumper cropWell, if we can't increase the number in 1 poll, we have some options.
I'm not keen on cutting back any entries to fit the 65 limit. Next Challenge I think I will see about running the entries for 4 weeks instead of 6 weeks.
We can divide the stories as equally as possible and run 2 polls.
Run 2 polls simultaneously, and let the voters have 2 votes in each poll. (Voters get 4 votes in total)
Run 2 polls simultaneously and let each voter have only 3 votes total, but they must place them in each poll as they see fit. And yes, it may be a nightmare for me to keep track of who votes where and that no one over-votes.
But what happens in the future when this challenge becomes so popular and hundreds of people want to enterAnd perhaps, set a limit to entries per person anyway.
Two polls is too complicated. If we can't handle more than 65 entries we must limit it to comply with that number.
Ask the person with the most entries to retract one. If there are 2 super-contesters with the same number of entries let them both retract one of their choice. And perhaps, set a limit to entries per person anyway.
Tis prob handiest to just shave one, the anonymous thing complicates this (if someone has typed more than their fair share of tales, not that anyone would, then I reckon it wouldn't be unreasonable to drop one ...especially if it wasn't Shakespeare materialOops , just seen this after posting. Pretty much sums up what I was thinking/suggesting.
Personally I don't like the thought of asking someone to remove an entry they could have spent lots of time creating for the Challenge, but that is a better alternative than having 2 polls running at the same time which could easily create issues.
