Voting

Voting Period: Sunday, January 15th 00:00 JST ~ Saturday, January 21th 23:59 JST

Voting is done similarly to the previous years. You will need to obtain a voting ID by submitting your email address to the site; you will receive an email with your voting ID included, and when completing any poll you will need to enter this voting ID. There is only one voting ID allowed per person.

Voting ID requests can be made half a day in advance of the polls opening. As such, they are already available as of this thread posting.
Please request your ID before the poll starts if possible, to help take some load off of the server during the voting period. Additionally, as you can vote anytime during the voting period, perhaps take care to save your votes until later during the week.

Please refer to this site for the clock / time by which the contest is operating. (http://wwp.greenwichmeantime.com/time-zone/asia/japan/time/)

Five categories are available for voting :

In the same order as on the site :
Character Poll - Vote for your (maximum of) 7 favourite characters. Your top vote will receive 2 points as opposed to 1.
Music Poll -  Vote for your (maximum of) 10 favourite songs. Your top vote will receive 2 points as opposed to 1.
Works Poll -  Vote for your (maximum of) 5 favourite works. Your top vote will receive 2 points as opposed to 1.
Best Partners Poll -  Vote for your (maximum of) 5 favourite pairings. Your top vote will receive 2 points as opposed to 1.
Voter Questionnaire - A questionnaire collecting voter data on demographics, game clear rates, game and manga ownership, etc.
Here is a translation of the questionnaire. (https://www.shrinemaiden.org/forum/index.php/topic,20546.msg1312321.html#msg1312321)

Here (http://toho-vote.info/List.php) is a list of the candidates that you can vote for in each poll. The top four links send respectively to the list of characters, the list of songs, the list of works, and a list of arranges that will count as the same at their original.

With your votes, you can submit comments about your vote. These will be published on the website once the poll is over. Both your vote and comments can be edited until voting closes.



FAQ

General

Q. Can I vote from my cell phone?
A. You can vote, but support for phones is not guaranteed. If errors occur such that you cannot vote, please vote from a different location, such as a net cafe or a friend's PC, instead.

Q. Do I need to fill out the comment field?
A. Filling out the comment field isn't necessary.

Q. I don't want to fill out all the spots for votes.
A. Vote for as many as you would like, then leave the others unselected.

Q. Can people outside Japan vote?
A. Yes.

Q. Will it be okay if I vote from the same computer as my siblings, etc.?
A. While it's impossible to say with 100% certainty that your votes won't be mistakenly judged to be duplicate votes, if you include the voting reason in the comment, it should be fine.

Q. I have no choice but to vote using a free e-mail address; will it be all right if I fill out the comment field properly?
A. As long as it's not a duplicate vote, there won't be any problem.
Note: Recently there has been a surge in votes from one-time-use emails. In case using one is unavoidable they will not be prohibited, but please be aware that there is a higher likelihood that these may be marked as duplicates or invalid votes.

Q. What is the maximum number of characters allowed for comments at voting time?
A. 200 full-width characters. [or 400 ASCII characters.]

Character

Q. Can I vote for Lily Black?
A. She is included in the "Lily White" option. (Note: In the "Kare Radio" broadcast on Aug 21, 2010, ZUN commented that Lily White and Lily Black are the same character.)

Q. Can I vote for Rin Satsuki?
A. As a character which does not officially exist, she will not be included.

Q. There's no option for the character I want to vote for...
A. As Seihou/Uwabami Breakers characters/ZUN are not characters that have appeared in the Touhou series, they will not be included.
In addition, inanimate objects (Yin-Yang orbs, gameplay items, etc) except for the Shanghai Doll and UFOs will not be included.

Q. Story of Eastern Wonderland's Stage 1 midboss and Stage 3 boss are inanimate objects, so I can understand why they're not included, but can't I vote for other PC-98 midbosses?
A. Considering that they have no proper names and are very poorly known, we have decided not to include them.

Q. Regarding the fairy mooks, will there be separate options for fairy maids, etc?
A. Characters without proper names will be included in the options named after their race.

Q. Can I vote for the girl on the Dolls in Pseudo Paradise cover/label?
A. Taking her popularity into account, there are now votes for "Dolls in Pseudo Paradise CD Jacket Girl" and "Dolls in Pseudo Paradise CD Label Girl".

Music

Q. How will votes for arrangements of original songs appearing on the music CDs be handled?
A. Arrangements will be displayed as separate items on the voting screen, but votes for the arrangements and their original songs will be counted together during vote totaling. Please vote for the arrangement you like the most.
(You cannot vote for both the original song and the arrangement.)

Q. How will "Love-Colored Magic" and "Love-Colored Master Spark" be handled?
A. Please refer to the table of arrangements with different names which will be counted together with their original songs (http://toho-vote.info/List.php#COMMENT).

Q. Aren't "Bloom Nobly, Ink-Black Cherry Blossoms ~ Border of Life" and "Border of Life" different arrangements of the same song?
A. In this poll, they are treated as different songs.

Best Partners

Q. Can I vote for 3 or more in a group?
A. You can only vote for two as one group.

Q. Does the order of characters chosen matter?
A. The order does not matter. "A and B" will be counted the same as "B and A". The name order when votes are released will be in order as listed in the Character List.

Questionnaire

Q. Regarding the voter survey questions on game clear status, aren't frame drop rates going to be included?
A. We're not being that hardcore in having such strict policies on counting clears.

Other

Q. Are there any plans to include the spell card poll?
A. It will not be implemented this time.

Q. Can I use pictures I've drawn on Pixiv, etc. as publicity images?
A. Publicity is welcome. In addition, including the hashtag "#toho_vote13" and "第13回東方Project人気投票" is recommended. Registered participants can put links to these works here (http://toho-vote.info/Shien.php).

Time to vote in this year! Missed last years! Decided to vote for who is on my mind instead of numbered favorites, my list is too messed up to number any character. T^T

Top vote: Kagerou (I expect her to rise a bit in ranks, she's been getting more attention in the fandom since the last one)
Additional: Wakasagihime (fish princess is best princess!), Nue, Doremy sweet, Alice, Kogasa (Sorry Tewi! T^T), Sanae.

I love all of them for varous reasons..but struggled with alice, do i pick alice, satori, or parsee, who do I pick to represent my all time favorite...

Decided not to vote on music, far too many to pick, would end up picking mostly CD ones and never got a chance to hear ZUNs 2 new CDs recently so I can't give a fair assesment.

Who do you think might rise in ranks due to fandom?

EDIT: damnit forgot about Nazrin and Shou, this is why 7 feels so small T^T

Well, having the Best Partner vote again is in commemoration of AoCF, so that's what would be implied, but I think it'd be a safe bet to say that shipping is most likely what it'll end up being anyways.

Voter questionnaire

1. Age

I disagree with the old guy's mindset in the sense that I find it way too harsh. Furthermore, this mindset would sort of means that every fanbases would be crap seeing how all popularity polls are heavily affected by things such as how well-known a character is (via official material, fan material, memes, videos, etc.), nostalgia, bias, appearance of a character, etc. and I think this is what's sort of funny about the popularity poll. Not funny in a mean-spirited way but... I think it's fair to say the Touhou fanbase is very creative. We got a lot of neat ideas and we're really good at putting our ideas into motion to make games, comics and all sorts of neat things. However, the Touhou popularity poll rarely changes in term of results which is a sort of funny "contradiction".

Anyway, it's a popularity poll and that sort of thing is just for fun and to collect information about the fanbase. It's neat to be able to vote and pick what we like and even if a favorite character, tune or work would be in like, dead last, it wouldn't alter that character in any way. There's no need to get upset about it. One should vote for what they like and take it easy.  :V
Title: Re: 13th Annual Touhou Project Popularity Contest
Post by: Chill Observer on January 15, 2017, 04:21:23 am
The only thing I'm concerned about is some people who are voting might still misinterpret "partners for AoCF" as "shipping pairings in general", so we can expect to see some skewedness in that aspect.

Otherwise, I'm fine with how things are, really. You can't really control what the fandom prefers. Remember, every fan is different and has differing preferences. I like seeing the slight variations in polling results after each popularity contest, I find it quite interesting.

Can we get a real source on that? All I found was this on http://toho-vote.info/Rule.php:

『東方憑依華』の発表を記念して、あなたが一番だと思うペアを選ぶ「ベストパートナー部門」を特別部門として設置します。
To commemorate the announcement of Touhou 15.5, we have instituted a special "Best Partner Group", for you to choose the pair which you find the best.

"Commemorate". It doesn't say that they will use the votes for 15.5, or that you should only vote partners for that game.

"Best Partner group" seems pretty clear cut on what it means. Talked with a few others and they voted in favor of 15.5 tag partners.

Caring about the results is unnecessary. Placements barely change in the top 20, and themes/works barely change, as well. I predict this year that LoLK characters will fare much better, but that will be the only major change.

Also in regards to the poll, it were shipping, there would be so many pairings to sift through and it would all just be one gigantic mess. I would hope they're referring to AoCF partners, and I'm pretty sure they are.

Voting in favor of 15.5, agreed. You can do that, voting a pair that you think makes great partners for the game itself. But if the voting was solely for 15.5, I believe they'd severely cut down the list, instead of letting you vote everyone.
For example, one of my votes still goes to Merry/Renko. Aside from being one of my favorite ships, they are canonically two of the strongest partners in the whole series. That doesn't mean they'll show up in 15.5 however.

Post by: Colticide on January 15, 2017, 08:27:18 am
Well since the roster isn't set in stone the partners could be anyone (we all know not everything but still), it's just there if you want a pair that you think could work, like Reimu/Aya or Kagerou/Wakasagihime! (How that pair would work no idea, maybe we finally get to see a flying fish!)

Post by: Drake on January 17, 2017, 03:31:03 pm
So here's a thing I made that people should try even if they've already voted:

http://drakeirving.github.io/touhoudict/

The site presents some javascript code that loads up an english↔japanese dictionary of Touhou character names, as specifically listed on the poll, and then translates all the character names in the dropdowns on the page. You have to copypaste the code into your browser's console on the appropriate voting pages and run it because it's the best way I figured to do it for now.

Translating character names and music titles etc is something that's a dumb issue every year and probably over 80% of people already push the site through google translate, so I'd really like to see a better way of handling this. Additionally this should aid the compilation of results both here and on the wiki.

So far this is just a test of interest and efficacy. I'd like feedback on how this process could be made easier; ideally this should be as browser-independent as possible, which is why I opted to just let you copypaste the code and run it. Userscripts are an option, but I have the impression that a large portion of people would not take the extra steps to download a userscript manager. At this point I don't really know a better way to present this outside of contacting the site managers and getting a translator function in the site itself (which honestly isn't out of the realm of possibility either).

Also if it doesn't work or if something should be made clearer then just pile it on me.
Title: Re: 13th Annual Touhou Project Popularity Contest
Post by: Colticide on January 18, 2017, 01:28:24 am
Thanks Drake! You are seriouly awesome!

As a side note love to see people top picks of characters I couldn't pick, make me feel better that I was unable to choose them T^T.

EDIT: so I pasted it into the console tab, not sure where to go from there, I hit enter and get Undefined at the bottom. Pretty new to working with stuff like this so I know I'm doing something wrong. I should also say that I'm at the character voting screen when I do it.

Voting is done similarly to the previous years. You will need to obtain a voting ID by submitting your email address to the site; you will receive an email with your voting ID included, and when completing any poll you will need to enter this voting ID.

How do I do that?  I haven't gotten any farther than translating (https://translate.googleusercontent.com/translate_c?act=url&depth=1&hl=en&ie=UTF8&prev=_t&rurl=translate.google.com&sl=ja&sp=nmt4&tl=en&u=http://toho-vote.info/Shien.php&usg=ALkJrhjwPTn-lRo_1o6zU9z9dcX2D75FxA) what I was told was the registration page.  I don't know where anything is, and I don't speak Japanese; I need to be carefully walked through this.

It should return undefined, and afterwards the dropdowns should have translated names. But maybe I'll instead return a confirmation message on success because more than one person thought it was weird. I might also put some visual feedback on the page itself.

TIL the innerText property is not supported in Firefox because reasons, but is supported in Dev Edition (which I use), which is why people have reported it not working on FF despite me totally using FF.

Fixed; for everyone having that issue on FF, it should work now. It should technically be faster now as well.

Pairings Vote
Reimu and Marisa (Topvote)
Koishi and Kokoro

Questionnaire
Age : 19. Male.  Residence : Europe.

I only cc'ed IN in Normal, once.
What draws me in the Touhou : All of the list, but in order : Music, Story, Universe, Characters, Derivative Works, Games.

I got into Touhou in late 2014. I discovered Touhou via Youtube and through doujin sites while looking for STGs.

I never attended to Reitaisais or Comikets (would love to, if I could). If i were to participate, i would Buy multiple things and perform Cosplay, i guess.

Also this is my first time voting.
Hope i did not mess up too badly.

Quick glance at the results:

All hail the Queen.

Scarlet Sisters are dominating as usual in pairs in the music section. Stable for three years already.

Satori is being sandwiched by the Scarlet Sisters.   (corrected by Flandre5carlet)

Nope, she's below the pair.

Anyways, those results are pretty damn expected, especially so the character top. But I'm kinda sad about how low some of the characters/pairings are (or alternatively, how high some silly joke pairings are...)

The music in particular, I'm saddened by how low some amazing themes are ranked.

Sorry for my  trivial question as this kinda odds me a bit, but will this result be the actual 'finalized' popularity ranking of this voting poll, or is it still subjected to changes?

It is indeed not a final result yet. Therefore anything can change. But noticing Reimu's major lead, she won't be moving around.

Marisa and Koishi on the other hand are quite close.

Reimu/Marisa being the top partner choice is no surprise, either. By a considerable margin, even.

It's a shame that DDC demo characters are the only Flat Characters in the series. They have almost no personality except being the victims of the mallet.

I think that's why artists like them! They are mostly a blank slate and can be use to make their own story! Example being the grassroots network MMD, taking little knowledge and using that! Daiyousei is prime for creators, she is completely blank and is a canvas for those to work with! Daiyousei popularity comes from the fans, they like her for many reasons and not because she deserves it. Still happy for many of my favorites rank up this year! (Far too many favorites!)

I understand that logically, some game has to be the least popular one. What is distressing is how long it takes for that least popular game to appear on the lists. There's a difference between a wide spread of game representatives in the Top 20 or 25 and, say, the entire spoken-word cast of one game appearing before the first character from another game. The latter suggests a much more notable lack of interest in the second game than the former.

With so many characters, you could say even a character placed at 40 is still really popular,

The "downfall" of Cosmic Mind is also interesting, as well as most EoSD characters and music appear to slowly creeping up in the list each contest.

Also, Unknown X is listed twice in the music list.

TD just feels the most out of place to me, don't get me wrong I love Miko, seiga, and yoshika but I keep repeating myself... 7 I have to choose 7. It could also be the fact most of TD's characters we know a lot about already. Take Rumia for example, what is she? What kind of youkai is she? She still has mystery to her so people are still interested in seeing more of her. Wakasagihime scored in the 60s, but I love her! Her design... and that's it really... I mean she's nice and part of a group with Kagerou but there is nothing else I know about her, I want to know more about her and only the fandom can fill that need.

I don't know those are just my thoughts about TD.

I kinda share that sentiment about TD. Mamizou hijacking FS is one thing, but the taoists have incredible interaction potential between a fabulous leader with an awesome ego, her naive but zealous right hand girl, her temperamental but friendly ghost wife who also has the bone to pick with the former and the trickster mentor extraordinare with her zombie pet.

Why is all that chemistry still so untapped, I don't know - considering the doujins at least as fun as those centered around SDM practically draw themselves. That is in fact, the reason I'm rooting for Tojiko to return somewhere in canon - so she registers as a legitimate and amusing enemy to Futo in the eyes of the fandom.

Yearly reminder that you have all failed me,  and I will not forgot this.

Also, I hypothesize that Miko and the Gang are a tad less popular because they aren't really folklore so much as historical/pseudo-historical figures? So they're kinda the odd cats out in that sense? Like if we had a thing that was all about jersey devils and bigfoots and UFO Cult alien messiahs, and then George Washington gets tossed in. Even though they're good and cool, they're kinda an odd man out.

I don't know those are just my thoughts about TD.
And I'm the complete opposite. I can't get myself to like characters with not much information about them, like Rumia, Kagerou, Momiji, etc. precisely because there isn't much I could like about them! Sure, there's all sorts of different interpretations by the fandom, but I'll use Momiji as an example here. A good portion of Momiji fans only like her for the Awoo, and I find things of that nature to be annoying. It's a similar reason as to why I don't like all the partner pairing shipping nonsense. Things like Doremy/Sagume have no logic behind them and I just don't see the chemistry in many of these ships.

On the other hand, I do like characters such as Marisa, Aya, Tenshi, the Komeijis and the Scarlets because it's clear enough what kinds of characters they are as well as the relevant plots and backstories involving them. Memes aside, I do see why these characters are very likable by large parts of the fanbase. There's also a reason why Reimu/Marisa is the dominating pairing - it's because they're both featured the most in terms of playables, and thus by looking at how either of them handle the incident through the various games, the logic is obvious. Pairings like Marisa/Alice (no, NOT the clingy Alice) and Reimu/Yukari also make a lot of sense due to this.

My favorite game is SA, by the way. I'm not saying the other games are strictly worse. In fact, I don't find any game bad, per se. It's just that I prefer specific games over others.

What people like is different to each person (dumb thing to even point out lol), my top favorites are all part of the top 15 in polls, but as an artist and creator I appreciate what can be possible with the lesser known characters. Then again I'm a pleb who likes all characers almost equally so my opinion is usually considered trash. ^-^

I was thinking that Parsee would probably lost some places with the latest new characters. Of course, she just won one place since last year, but I mean since three years, she stays around at the same spot of the poll. And she's now the third highest character from SA. So yeah, I'm really suprised.

Yuuka is now 22 but she's not a character I would worry about, I'm sure she'll be higher in a future poll.

As for Clownpiece I don't find it surprising. IMO it's a character you're somewhat interested at the first sight, because of her design and her fight. But then you see characters like Sagume as more interesting and intriguing as time passes. I never liked Clownpiece anyway, not because of her fight, I just don't think the character was that interesting. Also I don't like her design at all.

Here's a graph of the data from the past four contests (now incl. this year's) about when the voters got into Touhou:

(http://i.imgur.com/hU1pr69.png)

Quote
what is truly mind-boggling is how fan interest seems to simply pole vault from UFO to DDC

This comment is kind of on-the-nose because there basically was a slump in the newcomers during that period.

Probably important is that the voterbase is composed of 50% people who found out about Touhou either through video-sharing websites and 30% by offline relations. Assuming this holds in general, those 30% would then have been introduced 50% through videos and 30% other offlines, and continuing like this you converge to about 71.4% of people getting in by influence of the video culture (note: not at all rigorous). Considering that the golden age of Touhou video culture occurred with the peak of the introduced fans, it's pretty easy to see these are highly correlated. I doubt the gameplay contents themselves have much to do with it, really.

Besides demographics, utility of characters are a big deal. I'd propose that for a character to be "successful" in the fandom they have to fit certain characteristics, themes, roles, and so on, that makes them good candidates for playing with. People talk a lot about whether a character is already fleshed out or whether they're open for a lot of interpretation (as shown in the above posts) and I think that is important to consider, but I think this is a lot more relevant in the fandom's eye. Miko, while being a character I like, is kind of missing "stuff" to be popular with the fandom, and I think that's true of most of the cast of TD despite the thought put into them. Mamizou is a character I like quite a lot primarily coming from all of her post-TD appearances, but also doesn't really have a lot of "utility" as a character to make content with. There are definitely outliers, but even Rumia has the right stuff to be quite popular despite how many people find her bland. If you're cute and have the right design and a workable personality in some fashion you're good, more or less.

This comment is kind of on-the-nose because there basically was a slump in the newcomers during that period.

Damn, and that appears to be true in the 13th poll as well, with the August 2011 option in the questionnaire having just barely above 7%.

Poor Taoists, being literal victims of circumstances and their own inherent greatness. :(

Questionnaire results: http://toho-vote.info/result_questionnaire.php
You can also view detailed results on the characters. The comments are...interesting, to say the least. http://toho-vote.info/result_list_character.php
What the heck are those voter comments lmao. So many meme comments or breast comments or character is my goddess comments etc.

Also someone translated the questionnaire portion of the poll on here (https://maribelhearn.github.io/thvote), so if you want to see that part you can go to this.

The 1cc games thing is interesting, to say the least. There's both a percentage and a number of voters. I will include both here.

Not Cleared
Highest: LoLK (Legacy) - 49.7% (3516)
Lowest: IN - 8.32% (834)

Easy
Highest: SA - 24.18% (2146)
Lowest: MoF - 17% (1601)

Normal
Highest: MoF - 45.76% (4310)
Lowest: LoLK (Legacy) - 20.44% (1446)

Hard
Highest: IN - 15.31% (1535)
Lowest:  LoLK (Legacy) - 5.36% (379)

Lunatic
Highest: IN - 11.05% (1108)
Lowest: UFO - 6.09% (493)

Well, the fact that they're really hard may have something to do with it... Or maybe because people thought the question was a "Choose one answer only".

So, do we already have the final votes? Considering everyone and their mother is reposting them and yet they haven't been posted on the wiki.  :V

Yes. Poll is done.
I don't know why everyone thought the character/music votes weren't complete. They were just compiling the comments and the survey.

I also have a hunch that a good portion of the fanbase are also quite anti-gaming, because of the aforementioned difficulty, thus seeing anyone who plays the game as elitists. There are even people who think those who primarily play the games don't even care about characters, story, or lore, which isn't true at all. A lot of my friends who play the games do in fact care for many aspects outside of gaming, they just enjoy playing the Touhou games a lot and have spent quite a bit of time on them.

Like, on someone's LoLK Lunatic 1cc I saw uploaded today (the comment's been deleted now), I see things like this:

You have such a nice fan base. all right i regret everything. It's obvious for me the Touhou project is nothin more than a bulett hell shooter to you all.
The same person who thought "you didn't 1cc the game because you didn't get the Legacy No-Miss ending", despite it being a 1cc, down to the definition.

Said the one who can finish almost all the games in Lunatic...
But really, I think you're right. The games can give you a hard challenge, but the games also help you so you don't lose very fast (Bombs, You can see your hitbox, You can fly slowly, Characters have special abilities, etc).

Hmm, I'm of the opinion that anyone can at least 1cc a game on Normal. It takes some effort for sure, but everyone has the capabilities to do so. And like I said, it's Normal, so the games aren't at their hardest.

I'm always willing to help others, anyway. I love helping peeps with Touhou.

The link to the 90%-translated results are appreciated. A few of the translations are off but it isn't a big deal.

Regardless I'm probably going to put something together myself as well. Some things like the 1cc clear ratios are better as a stacked measure (if you can 1cc Hard you can 1cc Normal, etc), and graphs are also more readable than numbers for some of them.

I'll gladly ask for your advices, then if you don't mind.^^ Maybe I should create a topic about it, but you'll see where I'm coming at when you'll read me.

Well, that said, I want to talk about Koishi's popularity. I'll just express my opinion, because in touhou, giving a general opinion about a character is somewhat hard, since touhou is a little based on interpretation and that's part of why you get all the fanworks. I think that people like Koishi because she got a sad background while being carefree.(well, technically, she's not even carefree, she's kind of "nothing" since she closed herself from the world and erased her ego) People can relate a little to this kind of character, and when you can relate to a character, it oftenly leads you to appreciate him/her. As for me, I like her because her story is sad, and her attitude in hopeless masquerade totally made me feel more sad for her, even though she was influenced by the mask of hope, from what she said at the end of the extra of SA to Reimu/Marisa, and from the behavior she had in HM, she really felt like she wanted to exist, to open herself, that she was interested in other people. But reading the mind of people made her suffer so much that it's really hard. And even though I haven't gone that far in life, I REALLY can relate to this character, most of any character in touhou. That said, my favorite one is still Parsee since 6 years, even though Koishi is in my top 10.

For a more objective side, I find it hard to understand why she's very appreciated. But Koishi Komeiji's Heart Throbbing adventure is almost finished, the last episode should be coming this year. It probably impacted many people, and while it was kind of messy at the beginning, it developped itself into something very deep and emotional about Koishi's background and story. I will not hide you that KKHTA is something that made me like Koishi's character even more, even though I already liked that girl. What is true for Rumia with Osana Reimu/Reireimu can also be true for Koishi with KKHTA.

That said...being able to stay that high, I also can't explain the reason. Of course being at the top 10 is explainable, but I agree that it's still surprising to see her that high. It's like she's appreciated like a third temporary protagonist in a shooting game.

Um, so I just joined and I can't read any Japanese, so for the contest I can't tell if Seija Kijin is one of the characters available for favorite characters, since she's my favorite by a long shot. If anyone can tell me yes or no that would be useful, thank you!

I believe the contest's already long passed, but next time, there should be translations to navigate by. Or, alternatively, you can run a Google Translate tab beside the tab you'll be using to vote. :)

What do you even want :c

Actually this is mostly my bad; I thought Papil's post was not in response to anyone, and instead making a suggestion for the next contest as though there wasn't a bunch of work already done to help people vote. But looking at it now they were just responding to your post and saying that when you do get the chance to vote next year there will be that help.


But yes those resources are available and will probably be improved for next year.
