Some pretty interesting vote distributions over the ten threads, although the rush of late voting distorted the totals somewhat. The community reaction to a fairly notorious pair of linked threads in I Never Wanted... was (somewhat hilariously) like watching little kids accidentally walking in on their parents fighting and running away in horror; if that pair wasn't Hoovering up the nominations, Jacklyn Tran, Ashley Truong, Leilani Pascasio, Craig Chao, and Rosemary Sease were taking all the rest. And in the following thread (Revenge Therapy), only a few were able to snag nominations before Janine Cordova's force-of-nature post swept aside all other challengers, earning FIVE times as many nominations as the silver medalists. (That Jeffrey Mulyadi was somehow able to dart into the end of both threads and snag enough nominations to earn extra credit is probably the under-the-radar accomplishment of the year.)
Continue reading for the list of extra-credit earners in each thread! (To earn extra credit, you had to a) earn four or more nominations and b) remember to submit your own! This year, sadly, saw a much higher-than-usual number of people with their extra credit revoked; they not only miss the points, but get hit with the 20% penalty on top of it - a six-point swing. It's frustrating to those who ended up one nomination short of the extra points to see those votes go unused or misspent, but I guess them's the breaks sometimes.)
