To break the tie or not to break the tie, that is the question.  If I break the tie, I'm actually pushing one person off the stage.  If I don't break the tie, the person I'd choose gets in anyway.

 Oh well, I have more time to savor this.

Just push someone off the stage and don't worry about it, I'm sure there is some safety net rule we haven't heard of yet.

How about a game of, "Guess how much this costs at the dollar store?"

Why does the cash register at the Dollar Store have more than one key?

I think the other keys are for texting.

Two things:

CPOTM reminds me of american football (or was it baseball I read this about), that is long periods of idleness are being interrupted by short bursts of violence.

Second, this is the end of the month and we still do not know who the remaining candidates would be that still need to be voted on.

I believe the rule is as follows:

If, after numerous elimination, nomination and votes to stay, there is, at any stage herein or thereafter, a tie as defined by the universal rules of math, we shall declare the voting invalid, and thus start the entire procedure ... yada, yada, yada ... again!

See, I told you this voting was for 2013!

DalaiLuke

I vote for a shoot out!

ProKnight said the suspense was killing him ... or something to that effect Wink, so here goes; to sum up everything I know about the two contestants, it comes down to a pretty face or a neck beard.

April's almost over. I can't believe this snoozefest is still croaking along.

Well, it's not as if we had something better to do.

It looks like it's Charlotte vs kco.

proKnight98

Since kco is safe from this next round of elimination round (due to him winning the Head of Nominees competition), now vote for either:

Charlotte_212      13

NimzoRoy     11

Congratulations Charlotte_212, you are going to advance on to the final round of voting!

This new voting format is a big commitment for all of us to stay on top of each month.  I think I liked it better when there was only a nomination round and a voting round.

I've completely lost track of what's happening, but it could be because I've been drinking....

TheGrobe

Easily remedied, my friend.

Would it help if I posted the voting rules in the first post? I could also try to make the voting a bit simpler.

The second one -- what was that again?
