    What if your teams video IS the best video? Or, why not just continue with a single poll and implement this new voting rule (which I think is silly, by the way, but that's neither here nor there)? And, why have team-specific polls if voting for your team in those polls won't be counted?

    I dunno. Your sentiment isn't true of everyone. There are definitely some people who participate because they personally find it enjoyable. I know that's why I signed up in the first place. . . not for the fame or forture. I just like creating things (or ideas if we don't actually submit anything) and getting amusement from them.

    I also think that quite a few people view the entries though.

    I just yelled at him for making you cry!

    Question: Are the votes public?

    Well, ideally that's the only time you'd vote for your own team. But I think we've seen some things that tell us this isn't what's happening. I think the point is that teams with a larger number of members (or active members) would have an advantage because of a few extra guaranteed votes. This way, at least the decision of what is best rests primarily with disinterested parties. Maybe it won't work, but I'm glad we're giving it a try. I think the last voting system was fatally flawed.

    But you said that teams can't vote for their own team.

    Well, three points:
    a/ Then just disallow team members from voting. . . period.
    b/ I'm not sure that your assumption for why it was "fatally flawed" is correct; but I'll check on that.
    c/ I really don't care. I just didn't know how or where I was supposed to vote.
    Which made me think that it's possible other folks were having the same problem.

    Can those of us on dial up possibly see a transcript of all the videos?

    If not, no big deal.

    Oh damn. . . that was your idea? My bad.

    After reconsidering the subtle beauty behind this idea, I'd like to apologize for my rude and horribly misplaced criticism. In other words. . . sorry.

    And you misspelled "publicly."
