There absolutely will not be any of this co-champions business.

I didn't run this for over a year only to not have a winner.

Maybe we should take a vote on the co-champions matter.

I was thinking the same thing!

Well, namkcuR, so far not ONE person thinks me being the tiebreaker is a worthy solution. So I think it's time for your "Plan B".

Not a reflection on your ability to do it fairly, Fitz -- just thinking about the process, no personalities involved.

While I disagree with the logic you guys are using, I do recognize the importance of ending the competition in a way that the consensus feels good about. With this in mind, I have PMed Sicy and asked her to re-open this poll for one more day. We'll see what happens.

Oh, I know. I totally get that. I want B&C to get a fair winner too.

And you're completely right - I did miss the deadline. You snooze, you lose!

Yeah, but after a year+ of voting and such, the grand finale poll should have been more than 24 hours. Just my opinion.

I think extending the poll is an excellent solution; that way, no one who's already voted can vote again.

And if the winning song ends up winning by one vote, said-tiebreaking voter will remain anonymous.

This is exactly my feeling. I understand where you're coming from, Nam, but he DID miss the deadline. That's not a problem to me (hell, we've all missed deadlines before), but if there are others that missed it too and still want to vote but haven't spoken up, it's not fair to them to allow Fitz to pick the winner for the whole thing and then allow others who also were late not to cast their votes.

Extending it by a day or two is definitely fair. Who knows, maybe Fitz would have picked Strawberry Fields, but there are 5 others who were planning on voting for A Day in the Life. Then the results are messed up if Fitz makes the only call.

Personally, I think the co-champions thing isn't so bad. If there's any band that can't be defined by just one song, it's this one.

As much as it pains me to quote Paul, let it be.

The poll is open again, if you haven't already noticed.

24 more hours.
