    1. "A Very Tight Place" [very hard choice; best two remaining in this bracket IMO]

    2. "The Raft"

    3. "Night Surf" (2)

    4. "That Feeling, You Can Only Say What It Is in French"

    If we were going to 10 votes, the results for 4 would look like:

    4. "The Mangler" (5) vs. "That Feeling, You Can Only Say What It Is in French" (4)

    It really didn't get schneidered 5-0.

    Just sayin'

    Yes, the battle royale is picking up momentum, but for a while there it took forever to even get five votes. Future rounds will be for ten votes.

    Is there was way in the title to say that the round/thread is over? I am getting a tad confused on what is open and what is closed which is why I never started playing from the start. Mind you it takes me hours to balance my checkbook so do not really change things based on my comment I am just getting a little lost.

    it used to take forever because many stories were unknown. I was able to drop everything I was doing and read them as soon as the voting started (although I hadn't even known most of the lesser known ones existed), but not everyone has such possibility, or access to pirate ressources.

    I don't know if I can still vote here now? I had to go to work early in the morning, and have only just come back - somehow, doesn't seem quite fair, I haven't missed a single voting on this site since it was founded.

    Can't edit the titles of threads, but i keep everything current in my signature. I updated everything today on my phone just so people would know the rounds are over. I'll make it pretty and start the new rounds when i get home.

    Maybe next time it's a good idea to first gauge interest and only start new 'battles' when the desired minimum number of participants have committed?

    Also, I think that you can change the title of a thread when you edit the first post and click the 'go advanced' button on the bottom right.

    I changed all the titles (see above), but they only show in the thread itself, not the boards.

    Hmmm, that's weird. I'm pretty sure that I changed the titles of threads I started on more than one occasion. If you go 'edit' > 'go advanced' in the first post, there should be two title lines: one of the thread and one of the post itself. My memory is hazy re: the details, but I think it works like that.

    *edit: for some reason, I think it only works when there are no replies yet. Otherwise, one of the mods has to do it.
