    Current standings, any OM that was nominated but I haven't listed here hasn't been voted for (yet).

    EDIT: Upon my counting this appears to be incorrect - Arcticblast, tallying up votes

    Just gonna point out there's a bunch of people who joined today voting for Budgetmons. They also only have 1 post. There's lots of others that joined a while ago but only have 2 or 3 posts. This seems suspicious to me and should probably be looked into.

    We'll see what happens with those votes. They seem legit users, but registering people just to vote is rigging the process and will most likely not be allowed, but we'll discuss that.

    Hi, okay I'll explain those posts. We're all members of the same website that apt-get (the person who suggested budgetmons) is from. We found out today that it was going up for vote, so we all joined to vote for it. I've never used the smogon forums before this, and obviously neither have a few others. We're all voting for budgetmons I guess because we helped to work out and think it through. So yeah, it is what it looks like, a bunch of people joining to vote on the same thing because of reasons, but they still are legitimate votes. I don't know if you track IPs but you'll probably find all those IPs are quite distinct. Most of those accounts also have corresponding accounts on Pokemon Showdown, such as myself, QwietQwilfish, STROKING and Roseyraid; so it's not like these were made just to vote. They're our identities, it's just we haven't posted on Smogon before.

    So yes it looks suspicious, but it's just people voting for something they helped to think of, which isn't against the rules. It certainly isn't abusive.

    @Lasagne21 and @Joim, they're all from Showderp. We actually had a nice chat about Offstat in there (thanks to @roseyraid for bringing up Beheeyem), but it's the same as a bunch of people voting for someone they know in an election. Besides, what's wrong with Budgetmons?

    PS: I know your game @apt-get. I know it.
