    As stated in the OP "the best tales posted ... will be put to a 10 day poll". It was decided that the best 6 stories would be put to the vote, because too many in the poll and the likelihood of a tie was too great.

    The shortlist was selected by a panel of 3 people (myself, Yodasarmpit and Carrie) on the following basis.
    • All 3 of us had to agree on what we considered the best three stories.
    • Then each panelist nominated 1 additional story to be included - the remaining 3 shortlisted.

    So each story actually had 4 opportunities to be included - once in the top 3, and once by each of the panelists.

    Because what one person finds interesting, funny, surprising, unexpected etc. differs to the next person, as it would across the forum, I felt this the fairest way to include a cross section of entries

    I had a really bad day, just had a few big laughs and planted my vote! I'll have to keep an eye out for a future thread like this, I've a couple to cringe at.

    Best of luck all!

    I actually thought your tale was one of the funniest, a proper jape/shenanigan that could only happen in a nuthouse. :)

    Aw, you don't have to make nice, I've already voted for your story; and I don't think votes can be retracted. :hehe:

    Eeesh, that is making me fidget in my seat! I don't think wincing covers it.

    Do you get a prize for last place? Yorkie and I can battle it out lol.
    I don't know why you're complaining Yorkie, at least someone voted for you. I voted for myself :hehe:
