A HUGE thank-you to everyone for voting. 160 votes in total is equivalent to around 26 people voting, which really is fantastic! Also a big thanks to Vinkie (you've been amazing!) and everyone else who helped to keep YFS running... and last, but by no means least, thanks to Matthys for setting up the poll and all the mods for approving it!

I'll post the results later tonight....


And don't forget - it's not too long until the 2011-12 annual selection!!!
