I'm sorry, are you sure you counted right? 12+8+5=25
25 cannot be divided by 10 (without a remainder (is that the right word - I'm sure you know what I mean)) and if every voter is supposed to cast 10 votes, this just cannot be right.

That's on me! I never learned to count, so I sometimes forget to carry the one.

I gave Baron one too many points, so subtract his score by one.  Apologies all.  (I even gave Mandle 1 point for well-intentions this round.)

Second is Baron with 7.
Third is Sinitrena with 5.

I overlooked the one discrepancy vote as it would not have mattered and because I am lazy. Someone do a better job next time please.

That makes no more sense. At all.

12+(8-1)+5=24

24 is still not dividable by 10.

Adding 1 (for Mandle's intentions) back on gets us back to 25 (or 26, if you keep one additional point in).
Neither 24, nor 25, nor 26 are dividable by 10.

Honestly, where did you learn maths, guys?

(And that, by the way, is why I am against secret votes in our little competition.)

You are right... I did screw up the math... Sorry...

Ejected Star: 12
Sinitrena: 11

By the by, my Mandle point was a joke, and my total vote was 11, with Baron getting an incidental extra vote.

Mandle's joke point is now fully rescinded! No cake for you!

A possible solution to stopping bad maths from happening again, is for the host to display the votes after the fact, either anonymously or whatever.

E.g.

Voter 1 ( 6 to Sini, 4 to Baron)
Voter 2 ( 18 to EjectedStar, 1 to Mandle)
Etc., So on and so forth.

(Also, when I am host, I PM myself my votes before I write up my 'vote now' post, just in case I need to show receipts/no vote manipulation)

Well, I did ignore your vote for me, and then I dealt with your 5/6 vote by reducing it to 4/5 if I remember correctly, but then you said to take the extra point off from Baron instead so I did that but got confused it seems, but the final tally, thanks to Sinetrena's eagle eye, is the correct vote I believe.

It adds up to 30, at least.
And I can tell you how everyone voted, by the way:
Spoiler: ShowHide

Mandle didn't vote
Sini: 7 EjectedStar 3 Baron
Baron: 5 EjectedStar 5 Sini
EjectedStar: 4+1 Baron 6 Sini

Isn't maths great?

But maybe it would be a good idea to do a complete vote reveal at closing time, just to be sure no mistakes were made.

Edit: Completely forgot - Congratulations, EjectedStar!
