"Please vote for your two favorites from each thread." Following instructions, I voted for two favorites from each thread. (2+2=4) (Grin)

What's confusing about it? Two votes in thread one, two votes in thread two. 2+2 does indeed = 4. Four votes total. Yes. Vote for two in one thread, two in the second. Four total votes. Four.

Four.

I was just checking before it went wrong and then you've got an invalid vote.

Uh... shouldn't it be four in total or three or two in total? Two in both threads limits - there may be another in the poll you want, but you don't want to vote for even any in the other. See?

I see what SW means though. You could want 4 from one vote and none from the other and that squews your votes. But if that's how it's working. WE'll justhave to say fix later.

In other words, what if you want all four choices to be in one of the poll options...

It's a valid point... if you have to pick two pieces from each thread, you're not necessarily picking your four faves. It becomes more like each thread is its own contest.

We'll just have to change it for next quarter... the voting's already begun for this one.

*headless goalie blocks head from making it in to the net* Try again, Paco!

See? Actually, my head rolled off in the confusion, but just 'cause I let it roll around doesn't mean I let people kick it!

Zing! A hit! Acknowledged, sir.

Just goes to show that the more you try to imitate my amazingness, the more of a dunce you look!

Parry, parry, thrust...

A total non-response. I think I can count this as an epic win for HoiLei! *does victory dance*

I mean, well played, sir. Maybe next time you will triumph. (See? I can be gracious.) *walks away with grass stains on head, but style undiminished.*

Thank you both for turning a highly respected thread into a highly respected thread with a somewhat disturbing banter.
