People should be made to pick their favourite - it forces you to be more critical.
Someone mentioned earlier that they'd vote for the best and maybe for someone who doesn't have many votes - it's a competition, so in my eyes there's no room for sympathy votes... it just devalues the meaning of a vote.
Someone may come on and vote for every entry, which would be reduntant.
But that might just be me.
I agree with this - voting should be a critical assessment, and general comment should be expressed in the discussion thread, and not via votes. It'd be nice if we could do preference voting - 10 points for favourite, 5 for second, 2 for third - but I realise that this isn't practical.
As for the anonymous thing, it would stop cheating, but tbh if people want to vote anonymously then perhaps they should be allowed to. If you want people to know who you voted for, then you can already do so on the discussion thread.
Just my tuppence worth - not especially bothered either way on either issue.
