    GTA contest - vote for the best author!

    The two Guess the Author contests are closed. Let's reward the authors with a special prize through your votes! Let us know which text is your favourite in terms of the relation to the topic given and the overall quality. Everyone, including authors and those who did not participate, can cast their votes. Of course, there is no compulsion on anyone, including authors & participants, to vote, but it would be nice to show your appreciation.

    What you have to do: See the attachment of the text submitted by the 15 authors. Give points to each text as follows: 1 (Fair), 2 (Good), 3 (Very Good), 4 (Great), 5 (Excellent). Send a list of your points to: as follows -
    GTA 1: 2
    GTA 2: 1
    GTA 3: 4
    ....and so on.

    Please put in the subject line 'GTA Vote'. Once you have sent the mail, please let me know in a response in this thread.

    (i) Authors are not allowed self-voting.
    (ii) If you do not wish to put any vote at all for a particular text, simply put the word 'abstain' against the GTA number (e.g. GTA 5: abstain.)

    The two best winning threads will each get Rs.75 if their points are tied; otherwise, it will be Rs.75/- and Rs.50/- for first and second winners.

    Closing time to receive votes: Tomorrow, 14th December 2017, 12 midnight (IST.)

    Only after closing time you can discuss the two contests in the contest updates thread, with feedback.
