Years sounds good :laughing-rolling:

Seriously, I'll do my best to have something presentable come the deadline.... I wouldn't dream of manipulating the rules for my own ends !! (I value the integrity of the forum.... I'm not a politician !!)
Cheers

Only 1 Day left

Don't forget that you must submit your diary build by 12 midnight GMT tonight to guarantee your build is up for the final vote. However, as the same as last year, I won't be staying up till midnight to officially close the comp and setting up the voting poll, I also won't be around tomorrow morning. The earliest that I'll be logging on will be sometime tommorrow evening (6pm approx), so if you need an extra 12 hours to finish off your build, you will have a little bit more time to do so ;)

I fully agree, I've yet to go through all the diary builds for another look before I vote. I going to do what I did last year and make my own voting card where I gave points to each individual build on various aspects and then I just totted them up and the one with the most points got my vote.

Thanks Casp, Number1 and Wingnut

Just one week to go before the voting closes. The voting this year is too close to call and all can still change.

If you haven't yet voted, please do feel free to read through all the diary builds and cast your vote for your favourite to win.

Please can I remind you, that you are not allowed to change your vote once you have voted

Roy and Jess :)

Yes it was very difficult to choose who to cast a vote for this year. A lot of very strong contenders, I'm not surprised to see the voting neck and neck, too close to call. We are needing more votes to push for a define winner. Just over 3 days to go, so if you haven't voted yet, do take your time in reading through the diaries, but don't miss the voting deadline.

:text-goodpost:

The only thing that I dislike about the comp, and that is seeing entries with nil points :( Everyone has taken time and effort into their builds and I'm surprised that a couple of what I thought were strong contenders, are lagging behind in the votes. I would like to see all these gain a few votes. However I'm not allowed to influence the voting :shifty:

Could Mustang make it a hat-trick? :mrgreen: or will one of the other entries lagging behind suddenly overtake to snitch victory at the last minute :think:

It certainly looks like this year victory could go right down to the wire :auto-checkeredflag:

I'm not sure if we can have a joint winner or whether Mark and the administrators/moderators will have to step in and have the final overall vote :think:

Oh this is all very exciting and nail biting stuff :D
