If there is a tie in this round the winner is chosen by the contest creator (winner of previous contest) so we don't end up wasting time.
ALL ROUNDS SHOULD ALWAYS BE PUBLIC
How does that sound?
This sounds more complicated than calculating BCS rankings. This is, after all, a Bimmerpost photo contest, where the winner gets (some) bragging rights and the opportunity to have more work to do.
I agree with Badger, that all votes should be public.
Why don't the top vote getters, if they are tied, get a lightning round? One vote per person, like we do now. If there are ties in the lightning round, the person who picked the theme breaks the tie?
