A Sort of Homecoming is liked far more than I had thought.

Really? It's doing far worse than I expected.

It's second to Zooropa already, 10 votes to 15.

One Tree Hill, the song that made me a fan.

ASOH, tactical vote against the overrated Zooropa.

The votes cast to members always seemed ok.

But so far, only 23 members have listed their songs on the thread.  So why haven't the 7 other voters?

Well, they might be lurking members. The ones who have accounts and participate in polls and read articles, but other than that don't want to interact with the other members here.

That's fair enough.  So why did Droo and Bads suggest having to list the songs in the thread?

Because I think it seemed kinda suspicious that Miami randomly got 2 votes, and the other songs stayed the same.

The total number of votes should always be double the amount of members that vote.

3 members voted for Miami in a very short period of time about 1 - 2 hours before the poll closed after only 6 had voted for it out of nearly 50 voters over 2 days before and it just so happened to beat Cedars by 1 vote.   But they might have voted for other songs as well as Miami.  Just seems suspicious to me.

Not necessarily.  Some members may want to just vote for one song or mistakenly only vote for one.

Oh. I thought it was mandatory that you vote for 2 songs.
