Most of those captions were so funny, it was very hard to choose 4. I was practically laughing out loud at some of them.

I'm worse off then you. One of my captions has 10%, and the other has 5%.

I'm coming to realize that subtlety won't win you any votes here. :(

I missed seeing the picture until after the poll was written. So I get 0%.

Huzzah, a close second...

These shouldn't be posted so quickly, so that everyone will have a chance to submit one (and only one).

I guess my attempt to have more then three active topics going was for not.

In before the lock.

An IBTL would probably be more appropriate if this topic was getting locked.

It was?!?

Wow. I guess this may end up being locked after all.

Yep, in case anyone missed it, the moderatorial ruling is that the polls on the captions are too spammy to allow. The captions themselves are funny enough to justify themselves, but the polls are sort of pointless.

This probably wouldn't have happened if we stuck to one or two polls per month, instead of several polls per week.

What if multiple sets of captions were combined into one poll? Instead of having a poll for each picture, have a poll for three or four different pictures. Would that still be considered too spammy?

Heh… nearing the end of the tour… that one made me chuckle.

Um, yeah. Apparently I live in a box, so I have no idea what the deal is with the caption polls. Oh well.

Why do you need the polls? They're not exactly essential to the process.

—Alorael, who would be willing to overlook one more poll. There's a caveat, though: it must include all future image captions. Every single one.

Well, notionally, it's a contest, and hence requires some means of adjudicating a winner. :P

It's not very tricky at all. I like to think of it as moderately snide, though.

—Alorael, who demands evidence of nominal winning from your nominal contest. Are there notional prizes?

But no one ever really gets declared a winner in these polls. They just die out once all the people who might be interested vote and put in their short, vacuous quips. It's certainly a posting game, but it's also very amusing.
