    Default The Winners of POTW 570 & UESW 468

    Creative Workshop Competitions - Check out our sister competitions here on TWC! << Picture of the Week | Tale of the Week | Monthly Writers' Study Competitions | Graphics Workshop Monthly Competition >>

    The winner of POTW 570 was Dead*Man*Wilson


    The winner of UESW 468 was Derc



    RewardsDead*Man*Wilson: 1 points and +3 reps
    Derc: +3 reps


    So...on to the slightly convoluted GPOTW 129 Voting Breakdown...

    GPOTW 129 Results Explained The vote finished as such:

    Submission 3: 7 Votes
    Submission 4: 8 Votes
    Submission 8: 7 Votes

    However, since the decision was made to remove submission 7 as it was a cutscene, the votes for submission 7 had to be recast. I PM-ed those who voted for submission 7 and the results are as follows: Cookiegod cast his third vote for Submission 3, Commissar Caligula cast his third vote for Submission 1, and I cast my third vote for Submission 4.

    A bit of technicality on my vote
    Now obviously it's not very transparent of me to suddenly say I switched my vote after the poll closes, so if you guys have any doubt you may check with Hex (Alwyn or Caillagh), the moment I PM-ed the 3 others who voted for submission 7, I stated to Hex that I would be casting my third vote for Submission 4, so I did in fact cast this third vote on the 29th of July, not after the voting ended.


    So, where does this leave us? With the votes having being redistributed, the tally stood at:

    Submission 3: (+1 from Cookiegod) 8 Votes
    Submission 4: (+1 from myself) 9 Votes
    Submission 8: 7 Votes

    However, Derc unfortunately did not reply before the polls closed, and since everyone is required to use the stated number of votes (3 this time), it would be unfair to allow Derc to only use 2 votes. As such, his own votes were considered invalid, and having voted for Submission 4 and Submission 8, the final tally now stands at:

    Submission 3: 8 Votes
    Submission 4: (-1 from Derc) 8 Votes
    Submission 8: (-1 from Derc) 6 Votes

    And this is why we are having a re-vote this week. So for the sake of all, please do check your submissions to see if they are allowed, and if ever in doubt, do PM the competition manager! The competition managers will do our best to filter the submissions, of course, but it would be difficult, especially for games that we haven't played or seen before, so we seek your understanding and cooperation on this.


    Congratulation to this weeks winners! Special congratulations this week to Dead*Man*Wilson, who after winning two POTWs in a row, joins the order of the proficient paparazzo and is now eligible for a bronze medal!

    Sounds like you had to use maths to work out GPOTW 129. That sounds terrifying, good thing I'm not in charge anymore =)

    Congrats on the medal Wilson! Also congrats Derc, your GPOTW pics might be unappreciated masterpieces but you're getting the UESW wins.

    Congrats to Dead*Man*Wilson. That pic is really good.

    Derc however doesn't deserve praise. He's such a troll.

    It seems like Derc is repaying me the favour for when I kept voting for him and "the forum software somehow didn't register the third one" (at least that's what I tell myself to pretend that I'm not stupid, ok? So just roll with it!).
    "Something funny."
    - not me.

    I admit I did that on purpose. My curiosity got me. I wanted to see what happens.
    You explained the results very well. Thank you. And sorry. I hope to have made up for it in the current revote.

    Also, thanks for your votes in UESW. That city is now unfortunately Roman.

    Nice tale about counting votes for the contests. We all live by the letter of the law.

    Loved the overview of the city by Derc, one of the highlights of my R2 experience was sieges.
