Congrats Robin and Nate; good work! My vote was the minority report, btw. We need more voters.
I was raised by humans. What's your excuse?

Gratulations Robin. It was a good race. Also well done Iain and Sergio. It's always a pleasure reading both your works.

Lester's right, we need more voters, but that will come. The brand needs time to rebuild itself.

Re: July 2018 Flash Challenge: The Results

thanks kailhofer and lester.

never really been into voting as it reminds me of all those political parties that register dead people to vote or vote multiple times.

thinking what is needed is more readers who enjoy reading and thinking that Aphelion is indeed a great place to read and write stuff.

saw and read this months poetry and think more people should submit poetry.

thinking I used the word thinking too much in this post and think maybe less thinking is needed and more pizza consumed!
yeah, that's it. I vote for more pizza and less thinking!
