Contest Fine Print (note rule changes)

If a tie exists at the end of the voting period for the top position, the badge that had the greatest number of nominations will be declared the winner. If that is still tied, a run-off poll (to last a week) will decide the winner.

Ties for second or third place will use the same tiebreaker, but if they are still tied, a tie will be declared, and no run-off poll held.

Also, please remember that soliciting votes for badges, either publicly or privately, is not allowed. Please do not advertise one specific microbadge or designer; let votes fall where they may, honorably!

Any situation against the rules or not identified will be dealt with by the Microbadge of the Month committee (currently garion, wildthayne, zorro_jv, edbolme and Schwartzkopf). The committee's word is final, but they're all quite friendly and won't bite your hand off. At least, not unless provoked. Or very hungry. Or zombified.

I'm the weirdo who purchased overtext solely for the purpose of stating that Kaffedrake's overtext makes me feel melancholy.

No u

I'm not sure what I was expecting but I didn't expect this particular outcome. The ring got hit hard by the curse of "most nominations doesn't win". Someone should collect data on that maybe.

Also if anyone in charge of approving microbadges is following this it would sure be nice if some microbadges could be approved today so we have something to vote on next month!

Pretty sure I called this one in a geekmail to you a while back

Also, it was hit with the "curse of the game badge" more than anything. Game badges just don't win, no matter how awesome they look. Gimmick badges are where it's at.

Yeah in the secret microminati deliberations where we draw up the results of the polls for the next quarter and that we're not supposed to talk about

Don't forget the slanted food badges though. Yet another thing someone should be doing stats on.

The badge was already dropped on me, no need to request it!

Now I'm anxiously awaiting the list of badges approved during September, if there's any truth to the stories from faraway ports that some such exist.

Not much here... Just a few special ones, so not eligible.
I'd still hate to skip a month though...

I had 6 approved in september and they were not consecutively uploaded so there must be a slew of them out there, including microbadge #40,000
