This poll was a total cheat. In the last few hours of voting the votes for both video's containing models by Menno Gorter (#40 & #52) heavily increased. This occured in such manner that it wasn't even realistic these votes came in a honest way.

I saw something like that too, but in a different way than anonymous is trying to tell us.
In my opinion there was some kind of race going on right from the beginning.
I don't know exactly what was going on, but it seemed strongly every time when I got votes Dryw Filthiarn's fans gave at least two votes more.
I didn't matter to me.
Surprisingly it turned out real different the last morning.
So maybe that's what bothers mister anonymous?

Conchas can you tell more about this?
Is it possible to see where the votes came from?
Up till now I wasn't aware of having such fans.
Only I can't enjoy this while the poll is accused to be a cheat.

Unfortunately, blogger pools are relative easy to cheat... :(
And there is also no data stored about the voters. Even if it would, it wouldn't be reliable either.

Unfortunately it is also not the first time that we have suspects of this happening. Remember one previous TBs poll, where we had the same kind of suspect.

Wonder why someone would like to cheat such polls for nothing, except for the "fun"... or too much free time. :/

Epo using fans? :-)

So they should be disqualified! ;-)

I think Gus Jansson might be #1 at least then, since he made an absolute fabulous walker.

Even if having a cheating race, between two or three entries, they should be the favorites anyhow.
Doesn't really matter who's 1st or 2nd, as all are absolutely great creations.

If we don't care about it, maybe we have less cheating in the future... :)

I don't know about the walkers, but crowkillers' model is absolutely beautiful even though the functions are simple.
