Yep @redmando the results will be visible when the poll expires, that'll be 14 sep... Or do we all want to see the intermediate results?

Just to make sure: the mins/mods CAN see the intermediate results AFTER they've voted and that allows our staff to share spoilers like this (and this is for real): 'Two songs head-to-tail atm, with 32 and 33 points'..

Pro of showing the intermediate results to everyone:
-We can see the aggregating of the results together like a 'race'

Con
-This is no 'race', everybody has his/her own taste so only the final outcome counts
-Seeing who's in the lead can (of course unintended) bias voters to only listen to, and vote for the songs that are in the lead at that moment

So let us know what we all prefer (you know we'll listen).
In the meantime we have 11 votes and 15 contestants, so we'd like to see at least 4 more voters and even better: seeing non-contestant kitcheners voting. Common fellows, please don't be shy, we need your honest opinions!!

Cheers all!!

That was very enjoyable - listening to all those covers and re-aquainting myself with ones I hadn't heard or hadn't heard for a while.

The votes from Sydney, Australia are now in!  ;D

I would like to suggest that the results be kept private until the very end so that anyone listening can really vote their own preferences and enjoy the playlist.  It's tougher if you know there are two or three front runners and you feel pressured to essentially use your points to decide the influence the top 3. 

Also, it would be nice to keep the deadline firm - that way it will allow anyone who has seen the original deadline post to listen at their leisure.  I am thinking that many kitcheners don't get the chance to drop by daily and might have glanced at the post and planned their listening for when they had more time. 

Anyway, just a thought!

Yep that's my preference as well @Rabid Parrot , but always good to ask and check with the community...

Wow btw 1 song already made it to more then 40 points, two following in the 30's...
I hope all kitcheners vote (not only the participants in the Cover Competition).. Don't be shy and let us know what you think!
Cheers!!

Sorry, didn't respond (missed) this comment. Absolutely @Rabid Parrot , no question about that! Maybe we'll even set the closing date 2 days later, @Dutchbeat and I are in our second kitchen management summit then, so we can respond to the results together at the same time! That'll be a lot of smileys and polite words!!  ;) ;)

To every kitchener who has voted yet: wow I'm amazed by how much time you all take, I see reviews appear now and then (way before you finally press the 'vote' button), you all seem to listen to each entry with a lot of care and I have to say that makes me feel really proud to be part of our community. Chapeau!!

AND I'm happy to see non-contestants voting as well!! I'd like to ask every kitchener/kitchenette to vote and help us find the winner of this competition, please don't be shy, your input is really appreciated!!

Yes, that's going to be great @Dutchbeat !! Shall I run it (eh... start a thread in 'Competitions', explain the assignment and get it going?)

In the meantime, the intermediate results for the Kitchen Cover Comp:
1 Song already in the '50 points' range
2 Songs around the '40 points' barrier
3 Songs in the '30-40 points' range..

We have collected 15 votes already (please reply when you've voted), but I think we need 10 more votes..
You'd help us a lot when you vote kitcheners/kitchenettes!! No matter if you were a participant or not... Don't be shy!!

Cheers kitchen fellows!!

@Dutchbeat I'm doing great, although still crazy busy. I'm trying to hand off some of the projects so I can breathe again, but a couple of them WILL NOT DIE!  :-[

I'm hoping to have some free time for playing around with some tunes soon, though. Hope you're doing well!

@MartiMedia you're so right, this is way more fun! Someday maybe I will just up and quit. That would be something!  ;D
