    Why do I feel threatened when I read this?

    Wait, you mean I don't have a future now?

    Hi,

    I think a "vote for Sparkie or you will get banned" would encourage voters

    Yeah, it would encourage them not to vote for me!

    Thank you all very much, I really appreciate your support! Please keep voting

    Sparkie's design, apart from one terrible flaw, is better than any other design by far

    Did I say terrible flaw? Oops, I meant minor flaw. It's just that "30 Day Money-Back Guarantee" doesn't seem to fit into the box...

    Thanks for your compliment about my design being better by far!

    As far as the " money back guarantee " not fitting into the box. I would rather have the text come back one line than have to stretch the box out any further.

    I think that #5 is also very well done, but of course I hope I win!

    Of course if you look at the poll, the top two which are getting the most votes (probably rigged) are nowhere near as nice as the ones that are getting some of the lesser votes! Besides, some of the designers just yanked NMF's current HTML code and redid the header graphic!

    While the first two are quite simple and may be popular, I don't see why they are exactly as popular as they are.

    And the last one is terrible! Why is that one so popular?

    When I said about it being a fix earlier on, I had my tongue planted firmly in my cheek, but now I'm not so sure that I was joking

    I like #5 the best, but that contest is horrible: they have the radio buttons right in between the top of one entry and the bottom of another.

    Plus they only validate based on cookies (they should also use IP), so if you turn off your cookies you can vote as many times as you want...

    ... Which most probably explains at least one sad individual who decided to take the liberty of pressing 'vote' at least 10,999 times......................................

    Some people are desperate!

    I was just now told that they were just using the poll as a general concensus to see what people might like, but it seems they will be asking their employees and clients individually which they prefer.

    I wouldn't trust the top two designers with any of my business simply because of their unscrupulous behavior!

    Well if that's the case, and the client/employees have any kind of taste whatsoever, I'd say it's going to come down to you, Sparkie, and No. 5. Good luck

    Sparkie, is that an advertisement or a site?!

    I must admit that it was the only real option out of all choices. The rest was just trash.

    Good job, though
