    Voted. @Avro Arrow : why "Aldrin" when it's an Armstrong quote?

    You mean techman? -> :techman: There may be an Apple emoji similar to that, but this is just one of the board-specific smileys, and has been here for years.

    Sorry, I just picked a label based on the person in the picture, rather than based on the quote. I think I can edit the poll choices if you'd prefer I changed it to something else? (Although I've never done it before, hopefully it doesn't reset the votes! :crazy: )

    You can just edit the labels. It doesn't reset the poll.

    Hi all, if you haven't already, please consider voting in the other two polls. Even if you don't usually visit the other forums, all votes are welcome!

    The Dramatization
    The Fiction

    OK, I've changed it to reflect the quote.

    This is the last time I re-use an av that was popular in a previous contest.
