    Tough
    I had a hard enough time the first round, and am thrilled my favorite made it to the top ten. Now I have to go through this agony all over again! I think this time I need to do a lot of serious thinking before I vote. :D

    Congratulations to the finalists!

    The oops was just for failing to see the deadline date that was already posted on the thread. Already voted today.

    In addition to the great exposure for the deserving top 10 finalists, that's also a butt-load of people that got to see our little forum here, hopefully some will join!

    Oi. All of my favorite images made it to the finals... this was almost harder than the initial round! Congrats to all those who were selected for either round!

    Which is not something the diggnation is known to bother doing in large percentages. Case in point, a simple survey some friends did a couple years ago, 200 odd diggs got them a thousand or so visits to a simple page that had a form to pick between 4 logos the one that best represented a certain concept. No email, no registration, just click the radio button and hit submit. IIRC they got like an additional 50 votes or so from those 1000+ visits, but nearly half of the viewers took the obscure link at the bottom of the page to visit the existing results. And if you look at the commentary in the digg thread, it's like a lot of them really don't get the point of the vote.
