If you look in the poll or in the rules of competition at the bottom of the OP, it says the poll stays open for a week after the end of the month so there is a full month to submit entries.

What if it ends in a tie, like it is now (at the point of writing this).

Then each competitor meets at my place with their keyboard and takes place in a gladiatorial fight to the death.

Although people who use Model M's are going to be given a handicap due to the build quality, we don't want the fight ending too quickly.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Realistically, I'll put up another poll here of just the top boards and whoever gets the most votes wins.

Also, do you think I should change it so the poll goes up in the last week of that particular month or leave it as it is? The only issue with moving it from the start of the following month to the last week of the preceding month is there will be less time to submit boards.

I don't think the Model M needs a handicap, all boards have their pros on and cons in a gladiatorial fight. Mine for example is heavy, small but lacks range.

I see no problem with how it is atm.

Yeah, but against a Model M you'll either have to be very agile or just have to throw it at them. tongue.gif

I think it's good how it is.
