I hope you won't mind me raising this issue but I have found an issue with the poll.

I imagined it would either be one vote per entrant or you could vote for perhaps more than one entrant but it seems you can vote AS a registered member, a non-logged in guest and cast multiple votes by refreshing your browser if you have your settings configured to delete cookies on exit.

This seems unfair, as a guest who refreshes their browser this way you can cast as many votes against one person as many times as you wish. Poll rigging anyone?

As with everyone here, I have thoroughly enjoyed watching the build threads and love all the guitars featured in the contest.

My Daughter is 13 and watches the challenges , Last night she went on as a non member , listened to the vids , looked over the pics and made her own choice . I did not tell her who my choice was , she picked one different than I did , her own decision . Guys with all due respect , this could get blown out of proportion fast .... Keep it a friendly challenge and dont sweat the " coulda woulda shoulda's "

Rats....I was just about done with my script to clean my cookies and randomize my IP to vote continuously at the rate of about 10 an hour (trying not to be too obvious!) ;)

Just kidding!! I don't know how to do that.......yet! :D

My suggestion is to only allow the BUILDERS who took part to vote.
Give us 3 votes each. Not allowed to vote for yourself.

Or, just let Phillip decide.....

Wadya think?
