Three votes in total? One of those is an egotist voting for their own entry and the other two are basically protest votes against the egotist.
I don't think I'd go so far as to call mine a "protest vote" as such since that reflects negatively on Jespah, who I genuinely feel had the better entry.

And regardless of Captain Gold flouncing dramatically off, I hope he can at least understand why voting for one's own entry elicits this sort of reaction, I personally have never done so and I'm unsure why a person would do something so transparently narcissistic in order to win a monthly fan fiction challenge.

Anyway that's the last from me on the matter.

Re: December 2012 Challenge Voting Thread

We've had a similar incident before. Apparently, voting for oneself is acceptable elsewhere on the net. For a while after that quite controversial discussion those who did the challenge would add the rule about not voting for oneself to their OPs. It wasn't present this time (which I understand because it should be self-evident). However, Captain Gold has been chastised for his behaviour and I'm sure he won't do it again. So I regard the matter as settled, too.
