I have to say that adding a bonus of 20 to everyone who votes seems a little
strange as the only reason I did not vote (as discussed in previous thread
here) is that I could not, thus those who vote gain a good boost by getting 20
extra points for each section for voting. Surely it would be more logical to
add their average score to their overall to make up the difference.

The very low vote seems curious as it seriously weights the voting against
certain entries. Although I realise that you [stephen] have analysed the
results with just missing out that vote (which is good) it still doesn't really
make up for the equivilent of a productive balanced vote on all entries sadly.

Thank you again for spending so much effort running the contest, it is running
fairly smoothly in my opinion. And although I don't rate very high yet I am
learning loads and really enjoying entering the contest. I just really hope
that we get a good number of entries and votes in the next round!
