Make a submission and a voting rules topic or something. Makes things easier to have all rules in a stickied topic (or two).

I really don't see a reason why anyone would need to worry about getting their votes in late.
In retrospect, I should not have included KOTE's votes, but otherwise, I think counting everything before my post was just the right thing. Otherwise, I would have ignored perfectly fine scores and opinion. Sure, it's probably not going to happen with two weeks time, but I'm not quite content with retroactively imposing the new rule. Absolutely nobody would have been hurt if the scores would have been included (except the people who are not winners but wouldn't have been otherwise, but that applies the other way round too).

The first person to make a tally includes all the votes he saw. If somebody posted in the meantime, tough luck. Then again, that might be prone to manipulation because anybody could do it.

That happened? Well anyway, as I said nobody would be able to vote once somebody has posted the results.


Still, what about the "no netgame" thing? Would you be allowed to grade a map if you didn't get the chance to play it online?
