Jeepers, voting on this one wasn't easy, the overall quality of the builds was EXCEPTIONAL!  :thumbsup:

Having said that, two of them are running away from the field, and they look like clones of each other too!  :thumbsup:

I hear what you're saying, Kit, but, although the race for first & second is tight, the competition to see who gets into third place is just as tight between more contenders, and there's still a long way to go, so the gap could close as the race continues!

I can explain this one.    ;D    It's a joke about "voter fraud."  One seeking to vote multiple times should get started early in order to get as many votes in as possible before the deadline.  Of course, this isn't legal so it's amusing to think about.  ;D

It's a saying I like to attribute to Robert Mugabe but according to wikipedia it actually originated in the US in the mid 19th century.

Of course that doesn't mean Mugabe never said it.

To vote multiple times in this poll one would need to have multiple forum identities or to know the usernames and passwords of "deceased" whiffers.   :wacko:

All right, I understand this joke.
But please remember that many whiffers here have not (English as mother language and) the same tradition knowledge, and we just try to understand the words directly, without imagining this is an (untold) joke.

With all due respect Tophe the majority of those who regularly post here speak (some form of) english as a first language.  However, I understand the point you are making and should have remembered not everyone would understand.  I have now (after a bit of head scratching regarding how to do it) put a smiley in the thread title.  Because after all, pointing out something is meant as a joke makes everything all right (sarcasm).

Seeing as only 38 people have voted there must be lots available...

Come on people, VOTE.
