Okay, so, by now most of you know how voting works.

Just as a quick guide for those who are new to the contests - the voting is broken into rounds, and each round you're allowed to vote for up to a certain number of levels. Votes are for the levels that you want to stay in the contest, not for levels you want to be removed. Just to be clear, you are allowed to vote for fewer levels than the permitted amount, and you are allowed to vote for your own levels. Generally, the number of levels that qualify for the next round will be the same as the number of levels that each user is allowed to vote for. The results so far are only visible once either the voting closes or you've already voted.

Please remember that discussing the levels anywhere on the forums (except private message) is not allowed while the voting phase is in progress, even if the level in question is not in the current round, even between rounds. However, it is okay to discuss levels that have already been eliminated. This rule does not extend to anything off-site, so you can eg. continue posting Youtube videos of your playthroughs, discuss in IRC chat, just don't draw attention to them on the forums.

There'll be voteoffs for each rule, to get down to one/two/three remaining levels each. After this, all qualifying levels will go into a mixed voteoff.
I've decided to keep the percentages of "surviving" levels of the rule-voteoffs somewhat similar to give every rule a fair chance. Example: A rule with a 66% survival-rate and one with a 33% survival-rate for the mixed rounds doesn't seem that fair to me.

There's only a prize for the 1st place winner - of course, getting close to that still means you made a great level.

So... let the voting begin! Each round will be open for voting for 3 days, except the final which will be 4 days.

All levels are still avialable in the discussion topic: https://www.lemmingsforums.net/index.php?topic=4091.0

Seems like a tiebreaker is needed here. ;)

With future tie-breakers on the first round, is it possible to do the next rule at the same time as the tie-breaker, or doesn't the forum allow multiple simultaneous polls?  Just that they're looking rather frequent and slow down the contest.

There is no option for multi-poll as far as I know.

Also I am not sure about if doing that in the first place is a good idea.

People often complained about forgetting to vote, so I am more on the side of the slower approach here. I rather have high participation than a fast process.

Fair enough, just we had two tie-breakers in a row that will increase the voting period by at least 4 days.

Well, that depends on the votes, sorry.

If, for example, it is the semi finals and it is up to desicion which 2 of the 3 levels go into the finals: I cannot start the finals if 2 levels tie for the 2nd place. Redoing the semi-finals with 3 is not a fair option, as 1 level clearly qualified for the finals. So we need the tiebreaker to clear things up.
Levels can end up in a very different voting situation if they are paired up in small groups. Usually the result is more precise than when put in a bigger group.

Yes, they lengthen the voting phase, but I can offer to hold a poll after the voting ends for this contest to shorten the voting time to 2 days either for all votes or only for tiebreakers.

I hope that will result in a compromise. :)

Apologies - it was meant to be slightly in jest, if only because every single stage up to this point has resulted in a tie-breaker.  Mind you, I guess that implies that everyone was stepped up their game in regards to making quality levels.
