Re: Discuss here the best article iPad2 contest
What's the policy for people who submitted articles?  If we don't officially have
one, I think everyone who submitted an article should vote for any article except
their own.  If submitters are allowed to vote for themselves, of course they all
will and their votes will effectively cancel out.  I think it's best to give each
submitter a meaningful vote as to what the best other article is.

If we're allowed to vote for another that's not our own, do we have to 
vote? Not that I'd tactically not vote to increase my chances of course :p

I had just assumed that I wouldn't be voting, but it would be best to have 
clarification on this.

IMHO everyone is allowed one vote including the authors. But Walter decides.

One vote per person is probably best.

There were never any rules about authors of articles not being able to  
vote.  Since all of us had posted to the newsgroup prior to the  
announcement, we can all vote.

I was planning on voting for the best article besides my own because I  
think that's the gentlemanly thing to do.  But there are no rules as far  
as whether you can vote for your own article or not.  I.e. if you want to  
vote for your own article, there is no rule against that.

If other authors vote for themselves, then I'd want to vote for myself as 
well. However, I much prefer Steve's plan of voting for someone other than 
himself. I agree it's "the gentlemanly thing to do". Besides, if most of us 
do vote for ourselves, then they'll pretty much just cancel out anyway.

So I have a proposal: Even if we are technically allowed to vote for 
ourselves, I propose that we all agree not to. With Steve and I in favor of 
this, that makes it 2 out of the 5 so far. So how about it, Jonathan, Dave 
and Robert?

Sounds like a plan.
