I know this was a topic of discussion toward the end of the last contest, but what was the consensus?

Does each person get 1 vote (best pic only), or multiple votes (multiple good pics, to average things out)?

1 vote per. Multiple votes is worthless. We're not picking anything but a single winner and all the entries are usually good. "If you're not 1st, you're last".

I thought it was a clever use of the rules. No offense to Seth, but I think it's better than a triptych since it keeps everything in a single photograph. A triptych, to me, is more style through pure post-processing. I thought these contests typically encouraged less post-processing.

93-posts and 4 entries!

Why so much talk on this one? Let's rest the keyboards and get to work with our cameras.

The rules are set, so let's put together a good contest instead of arguing about the details.

its an effective way to tell a story... not that mine is as effective as it should be but, there is something just as hard to pull 3 separate images together and relate as it is to clump them all together and take 1 photo of them. Not that mine is good at it or not (thats for you guys to judge) but in terms of planning it out and how they interact, I think my technique probably took the most effort in that respect.

Should I make another (voting) thread talking about 1 vote or multiple votes?

just do multiple... its the law of averages, if most people vote for 1 photo that means everyone agrees its the best.

its too bad the poll doesn't have a 1-10 scale cuz then it'd be perfect to just rate every photo and total up the points.

i think multiple is really the only way to get numbers up high enough.

otherwise there's going to be 5 people voting on 15 pictures because people are too busy to vote, or forget.

Agreed. Single votes will lead to a lot of ties.
