clearly superior to the old system.
still vulnerable to outside manipulation if 3-4 crappy maps get artificial support from clan members or people that were pmed and asked to vote. but that's very unlikely to happen.

But the mods have access to the voting statistics, they can watch the voting patterns and see if any one map gets a disproportionate amount of votes from the same clan...

It's of course harder to catch if someone asks people in live chat to vote, or pm:s random people who aren't in the same clan... but, those can still get caught.

All in all I think it's a good system, I hope it'll be used in future competitions as well.

No we can't. We need a phpBB mod to do that. Unfortunately that mod wasn't installed on CC. http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... &t=2068075
And from what I know only admins can do that anyway (you need access to ACP)

Come on DiM, you know full well that the time space continuum does not apply to CC. Therefore any vote that should of started 2 days ago in our time will only start when the sun orbits around the earth, fluffy little creatures dance to the moon and natty runs around a grave yard naked at midnight chanting his love for all things yellow. ;)

then what's the point of having a deadline if the poll starts X days/weeks/months/years/decades/centuries/millennia after the deadline?
