During Christmas 2012 we started the Konami Cartridges poll. After 176 votes we felt it was time for a new poll, but let's first have a look at the outcome of the previous poll. We asked you how many original Konami cartridges you own, and here's the outcome:
- 1..5: 33.5%
- more than 20: 23.9%
- 6..10: 18.2%
- 11..20: 14.2%
- None: 10.2%
The figures speak for themselves, let's hop straight over to the new poll. As you've read, a few days ago, the #msxdev Compo 2012 contest was closed without winner due to the lack of an acceptable amount of audience votes (in a construction where people had to cast their votes on IRC). Despite having jury reports from almost all the contenders, the organizers had decided that it was not possible to point out a winner, and the related main prize was moved to the 2013 edition. Still, this leaves the contenders of the 2012 edition without a clear idea of who could possibly have won, other than the contenders' own jury reports.
So, as a gesture towards those contenders, we've decided to open an unofficial poll - we've done it before with the MSXdev'10 entries. Obviously, the contenders won't win anything apart from knowing our poll results in.. oh, a month or something like that. So, keep in mind it's all unofficial, but you'll do the contenders a favour by checking their entries again (so please don't just click a poll option randomly!) and then cast your vote. If you wish you can use the poll comments if you want to add some context to your choice. Below you'll find links to the related news posts, for your convenience.
