The science of history is a great bulwark against the stream of Time; in a way it checks this irresistible flood, it holds in a tight grasp whatever it can seize floating on the surface and will not allow it to slip away into the depths of oblivion

Contest fine print

If a tie exists at the end of the voting period for the top position, the next monthly contest will feature a small poll (to run for a week) to decide the winner.

Also, please remember that eliciting votes for badges, either public 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, zorro_jv, Schwartzkopf and wildthayne). The committee's word is final, but they're all quite friendly and won't bite your hand off. At least, not unless provoked.

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