    Windows Valley is a well made site... good looking...

    but the content and the support that we give to the users are unique on the Internet...

    We are the best...

    Let's do a comparison, and check how the relative %ages have changed.

    If you remember the previous contest, then you will recall that there was some controversy over windows7center. Although this contest seems fairer, I think that there could be something untoward going on. With the exception of 3 of the entrants - windows7center, 7tutorials, and windowsvalley - all %ages are fairly constant (max change 4%). However, in the same time period we have changes of -13 -10 and +20 respectively for these entrants.

    Here are the relevant page ranks for these 3 sites:

    35,695 windows7center.com - Traffic Details from Alexa
    638,661 7tutorials.com - Traffic Details from Alexa
    522,925 windowsvalley.com - Traffic Details from Alexa

    Something somewhere is not adding up.

    and lets take a step further...
    look at SF's ranking...
    17,680 sevenforums.com - Traffic Details from Alexa
    way way way higher than those you just described...
    as said right there might reason to suspect something might be going on...
    not saying that something is but looks suspicious...
    i hope the Issuer of this survey has some protection against this kind of activity...

    like LFB said its closed now so its up to the judges, looking at them im sure whoever they choose the judges will have good reasoning on why they choose that site...
