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, who is currently on MB sabbatical). 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.

According to the tiebreaker rules, mb wins by a score of 7 to 6. Congratulations, Gary!

Gratz also to Jonna and Morten for strong competition.

I am also startled at the turnout. Up about 25% from last month.

No, same format. But the average votes have been hovering near 80 for the last few months, IIRC.

I should have voted tactically to arrange a 3-way tie for the gold, I'd have got silver.

Wow. So does this mean I'm a real micro-badger now?


I knew the voting was close but that was super close. Don't know what to say. Shocked that I got enough nominations to win the tiebreaker. I was just happy enough when it looked early on like I might get my first 'top 3' finish!


I think we've all learned one thing from this. BGGers have a soft spot in the hearts for silouhettes of sauropods. mb mb

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