Here are the 13 poems and lyrics from the last voting process, with an added two that came in 16th and 17th from when the mods placed their votes. Vote for your favourite. Voting still remains anonymous, if you are one of the top 15 please do not identity yourself until voting is over. You can only vote once, so make it count.

 

Please keep in mind cheating will NOT be tolerated. Anyone found to be cheating will be disqualified from the competition. Please play fair guys.

Well glad all this is sorted out. Voted, looking forward to seeing the surprise results!

Turned out the winner cheated by making multiple accounts to vote. So they're disqualified and we're voting again to decide the real winner. 

 

That's all there is to say about it really though, so let's try to keep this thread for talking about voting rather than negative stuff :thumbsup:

They decided to use 3 of the 30+ accounts they created to congratulate themselves, and mods can see people's IPs right on their posts, so when I noticed 3 of them had the same IP it all went down from there. :P

 

Anyways, excited to see who the REAL winner is this time around. I'm glad we can't see who's winning, as it'll hopefully encourage people to vote for their actual favourite rather than switching their vote to a poem with more votes like last time.

The fact that the old winning piece wasn't even remotely good should have raised red flags in my head but I guess I'm not such a cynical bastard ever since I can't see IP's and take happy pills.

Good job everyone; it takes a lot of courage to post your writing for others to judge.
