    Erm, polls with too many options are often set to allow multiple votes. We have no rules about this, so it's mainly left to the host to arbitrarily decide. So I just followed the criteria that was used in the Paired Modeling/Texturing Poll, which seemed good enough:
    Except that in the Modeling/Texturing Contest it was rounded to the closest number, not the smallest. We would vote for 4 entries if I did that and I thought it would be too much.

    In case any of guys think we should have clear rules written about this, you're more than welcome to vote 3rd option or voice an opinion in the Arena Contests Changes thread.

    We cannot see who or how many voted for us if we don't vote ourselves.

    Alright since it's the 1st time both of them did it (and one of them told me via PM telling to discount his vote right after he did it), the poll was just reset.

    Please guys:

    I'm sure some people won't even listen to a single piece. They will vote directly.

    Edit:
    Oh, I had forgotten about the video of entries. Now, all of people will see.

    Couldn't reply on the previous thread since I don't have the rep (I think, not really sure since I came back to this website after 7 years).

    @KayS Do you like Buckethead? Your entry could fit really well on his Colma album. You have my vote :)

    I hope not. Why do you even think that with such strong belief?

    I accidentally voted for myself, please amend it and don't disqualify me lmfao. I meant to vote for Devine. My bad.

    Edit: And it won't let me vote again, I feel like a dipshit.

    For some reason I was no longer getting updates to the previous thread.

    Why am I not on poll, the piece I did was the finished product :/

    I think the confusion here is that in previous contests the host has just taken the final wips as the actual entry if no later updates are posted. Or at least that is what I am used to :/
    --I uploaded more than one WIP so....I just assumed the final one would be taken. Sorry about that.
    You can find it on the previous thread. Last update was like 20th july or something? Page 8 or so

    Grr Weeb Fantasy


    In the life of a weeb, as he traverses his depressed lifestyle and wants to bond with his waifu.

    I suppose I needed to post a picture of the wip Project.
