    I have a question. If the time for voting is “1 week”, why is it showing only 2 days+ left?🤔😲

    I actually think 3 days is a better limit for this final round, due to there being fewer stories to consider.

    Patience old chap. In a few days, we can mull over all of them.

    The Ghost salutes your enthusiasm though.

    I think 18 votes is pretty good going in less than a day. Still plenty of time remaining.

    😀

    (I think a poll such as this works well on RHP where its forum regulars have integrity and fairness).

    We only had 17 votes in the original thread…

    To be able to vote by a single click could be a factor, as could that People now only have four stories to read 😉 [Those who voted in the first round knew the stories anyway (I hope) and only had to refresh their Memory]

    Perhaps one of two might even appreciate the nuances of a particular story that they might have missed when there were so many stories to get through. (That certainly applies to me).

    This last vote is interesting, and close so far, but....Far more interesting to me now is who wrote all of the stories! I hope nobody chooses to remain anonymous, I imagine that we'll be discussing the stories for a bit after the final result is known. It isn't the winning, after all, and there were some entries which didn't make much progress points - wise but deserve much acclaim nonetheless. I've found the 1st round voting fascinating, and it will be good to know who we voted for! Sorry, but this is my first one of these, I daresay you old hands have seen it all before and don't share my innocent enthusiasm....

    I feel just as enthusiastic every time reading the entries and following up their results. I know by now that all the writers are very good and their stories too. Some I find it easier to relate to though and they usually get my votes. But they are all interesting and worthy of our appreciation. 😍
