Voting Thread: 2018 Today's Toons Favorites (Final Round)
« on: January 13, 2019, 02:18:36 PM »
The preliminary round went pretty well. The voting reduced the 180 items in that round to the remaining 41 listed in random order below. As it turned out, any item that received less than 3 votes was eliminated. 55 items received no votes at all.
 
There are some "rules" here, but not many. When selecting your favorites, use your own criteria. Some like funny, clever, pithy, touching, etc. Some like cartoons, photoshops, animations, etc. So, judge each entry unto itself.
 
Each entry is numbered (1-41). Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to send me (via comment in this thread/private message) the numbers
in order of preference of your 10 (or fewer, if you can't find 10 that you like) favorites. If you are caught sending more than 10, I won't disavow your existence, but will ask you to remove any excess. This offer will self-destruct at 1 PM ET, Sunday, January 20, 2019. Scoring will be as follows: A 1st-place vote will get 10 pts., a 2nd-place vote earns 9 pts., ..., down to a 10th-place vote getting 1 pt. Good luck!

If certain pics/toons don't download (even after a refresh/reload), send me their numbers (which will show up) & I'll try to help. The detailed results of this final vote hopefully will be posted on Sunday, January 20, 2019 or Monday, January 21, 2019. The decision of the judge (Today's Toons editor-in-chief) is final! Questions? Bring it on! And now, on with the show!!

P.S. If you'd like to inquire about possibly helping with the Best Of 2019, private message me ASAP & I'll tell you what would be involved.

P.P.S. Did I remember to say
  in order of preference?

P.P.P.S. If you send me your picks in numerical order, I will ask you if they're really (altogether now) in order of preference...

@InHeavenThereIsNoBeer

They are in numerical order...do you want 10 pts. for #6, 9 for #22 & 8 for #33?

Yes. 

P.S. You should probably specify WHICH order you want them in, aka #1 first.

Have been doing this for 14 years & as the rules have always stated, they are in order of preference...

Order of preference is ambiguous.  Could be ascending or descending.

Again, you're an outlier. If you prefer it, it goes first...it's spelled out so clearly in the introduction that even most Democrats could understand it...

I doubt most Democrats understand the difference between a scalar and a vector.  I know some don't.

If you bother to vote next year just do it in double-reverse order of preference...

I usually prefer the ones that reflect the politics of the year in a broader sense, and I almost went with 15 first for that reason.  But #6 is so simple, clever and funny I gave it the nod instead.  Thanks for doing this, Pookie!  This has become a morning coffee ritual every January for 14 years now.
