Congratulations to A_for_awesome and all the winners!

Maybe that's because someone quoted a voting post and it was picked up by curl.

I won't attempt a full recount, but here's an effort make the results a little clearer. There's the detail of tie votes, where the order has not actually been determined by the count. And reporting the ordering only by pattern number seems like a deliberate attempt to make people jump back and forth between pages a lot.

I hope I haven't added any new errors, but this was all manual copy and paste, and pattern-number vs. number-of-votes can be confusing.

So I wouldn't put it past me to have confused things even worse.

I've taken the liberty of editing the two troublesome posts, removing the #s to make the quoted one non-countable, and adding #s to muzik's votes.

Subtracting the accidental double vote -- -2 for #3, -3 for #4, -3 for #9, -2 for #18, -2 for #19, -1 for #20, -2 for #24 -- and adding muzik's +1 for #3, #6, #7, #9, #11, #12, #13, #16, #25, +2 for #4 and #14, and +3 for #8 and #18 -- produces the totals that Macbi mentioned, and a new exciting three-way tie for eleventh place:
