Comments only counted as a vote if they specifically stated a variation of "I vote for this one." Nice chatty comments without a clear vote indication did not count.
We have a two-way tie between
Entry #1 submitted by Ghost Writer
Entry #3 submitted by FHL.
If Ghost Writer and FHL want to identify themselves, feel free to do so--either in the comments trail, or let me know via e-mail the name you want posted and I'll update the posts.
