Wow, so... out of 1100 registered users, twenty-nine people voted in the compo?! And (presumably) seven of those were the authors themselves!

I've heard of "lurking" on a forum (and I do it myself on a few) but come on!

Not everyone has a Flashboy, uses emulation or has time to test these games good enough to really evaluate them. I myself tested them after the vote closed unfortunately. Though, while the people who coded them did a great job, I didn't really get a feeling with the games so I don't think I would have voted in the end. If I would have voted, I don't think it really would have contributed to the real value of the skills of the coders. So my vote might have given credit where it shouldn't be and the other way around, making the results ill advised.
Also, a lot of those registered users are inactive I am afraid.
