Whenever a calculator has at least 2 game entries and 2 non-game entries, I think they should be split into two polls. If the non-game category has more than 2 non-programming utility and 2 programming utility, then it should be split even futher. Under that amount I think it should remain as it is right now, though. But yeah it would give certain programs more chances to win.

Another idea I had could be some sort of runner up award, where the 2nd place program would get a badge but not necessarily a screenshot.

Splitting each category into game/non-game entries might be nice. Also, i've always wanted to be able to vote for more than one entry...

I always thought voting for more than one entry might be a nice idea, too. Though that would require rewriting the survey software. :-)

The models should not be mixed because whats possible on one calculator might be impossible on a different one. I would also like to see a split between games/utilitys.

I agree that a split between games and utilities would be nice in some ways, but I don't think there are enough eligible programs to do this. None of the categories this year even have one of each.

Well then that's up to us to fix!
