Why did you say this: "I shall cast my vote later so no one knows what my vote is."? Nobody should be able to see what anybody else voted -- or even have any idea how the voting is going. This might cause unwanted bias in how they decide to vote. I get the feeling that voting will not be extensive and with only four entries, the results may not even be conclusive (be it what it may).
I did that so I could see the results later when the polls end. If you believe I should update it without it then update it with it, I can do that. And why would people be bias after they see the results?
I don't think someone would change their vote to vote for something else just because of the current standings. If theirs was winning, why would they change? If theirs was losing, would they change to something else that has a higher vote because they really don't want the current one that's winning to win? Also, you don't see who votes who -- but if a vote showed up two seconds after the upload, it would be obvious who did it.
Current tallies I guess would be ok; and you could program it to appear after a certain number of votes have been tabulated. In a way, that would also keep the challenge administrator honest (not saying you would be dishonest; but, others might be more at ease about the final results being they were made public).
Have not had a chance to get to pic to run it
Yeah, I wouldn't want me to be dishonest and skew the results.
You might want to update the description again as you have the polling ending before the scenario was new (maybe you meant December).
Oh, yeah, woops, um, yeah, I didn't see that, yeah, um, I'll change that.
