I didn't like on our poll that you could only vote for one! I think that on the next competition, you should be able to vote for your "top 3" and then whoever gets the most votes, wins.

Sounds good to me. Can you set that up? Congrats to the second and third place winners

That might be a good idea. I must confess that I was really torn, and waited until about 3 hours prior to the poll closing, to vote. The top 3 all did very well, and if I had 3 votes, y'all would have gotten them!

I was online at the time the results were announced. There was a small window between the poll results being visible & Robert deleting the whole thread so, I know how the voting went.

Without giving anything away (because it's not my place to do so) I feel that if everyone had 3 votes, the results would've been the same or close only with higher numbers.

Just my 2 cents worth...

Every body did a great job. It was tough to vote for just one.

...& there's the man responsible! I've said it before & I'll say it again, if it wasn't for you Eddie, it never would've happened so, you deserve some of he credit; you can go ahead & change your user title to "Inspiration for the 2013 Build-off Winner"

Thanks again to everyone for the interest in the build, the grats &, most importantly, for voting
