The caption competition was shelved for a while because the vote on how to do the voting ended up as follows:

As before with names shown against captions and voting 1,2,3 in comments.
37.5%  (6 votes)

Names shown against captions but voting done by anonymous poll.
6.25%  (1 votes)

No names shown against captions, but voting done 1.2.3 in comments.
18.75%  (3 votes)

Anonymous captions and anonymous voting by poll.
37.5%  (6 votes)

Total Votes: 16

 It occurred to me, though, that if I combined the votes for the different components I would arrive at a majority decision.  Thus:

Names shown against captions 7

No names shown against captions 9

Voting 1,2,3 in comments 9

Anonymous poll 7 

Right, so now I have to get to work listing the captions anonymously, and then ask  for voting in comments …  Unless somebody changes the poll!

    Bwahahaha!!! Classic – voting on how to vote! Trust you, Col! Where can I go and tip the balance to 17 votes (which will give you, by division, digital fractions that don’t come to an end)?

    Looking forward to the outcome Col 😉
    Whatever you decide – since it is, after all, your competition!!!

    Great example of how we do NOT all see things alike. 😀

    I think your plan to combine like responses is the way to go.
