Voting for this contest is no different than for any other. Voting is done by the community. on the "Vote for Our Next Contest Winner" blog post, where the poll appears. See this page:

The poll was originally located in the area where it now reads "Voting is now closed." Once voting ends, the poll disappears.

"Thumbs-ups" have nothing to do with voting, rather, they're simply an internet widget used on most sites these days to indicate popular content.

The voting poll was prominently placed on our homepage for a rotator (the large images you see at the top of the homepage when you go to and was heavily promoted via the FW eLetter which goes to 300K subscribers, facebook, twitter, and the blog rollup.

As I said earlier - voting is done by the community, not Fine Woodworking, not Taunton. The numbers are gathered and tallied by a third party in the interest of fairness.

Hope this answers your questions. If you have any more - don't be shy! I'm usually lurking around here somewhere.

Voting is done by the community and is limited on vote per IP address. "Thumbs-up" have no impact on voting.
