...A big &*(#ing problem.

This is unacceptable that whoblitzell was allowed to submit this map after the election. This map needs to be removed. Once maps are scored, his is almost assuradley going to be #1. As someone who had a good shot at getting #1 (every state correct), I submitted my map before the election, not after. I did my prediction fairly. He didn't.

Remove this map!

I second that.

Everyone else had to make educated (or in some cases, not-so educated!) predictions.

Its only fair that whoblitzell's map be thrown out.

God you people have problems....who the hell cares? If he cheated, simply ignore his "1st place". Not that I really understand why it matters anyway.

Yeah, it's not fair to all of us who did our predictions as predictions, not copies of the election results.

Silly of him not to make all his predictions "strong."  You get more points that way.

That's kind of funny. I guess Dave forgot to close it after the results were in. Not that much will come of your request, Dave isn't the most active administrator (with good reason, I like the maps he provides us).

He did pretty %^&# well. If everything goes as it's looking like it will in AK, he'll have 100% accuracy, or very close to it.

The point is that he cheated. So either there was a bug on the Altas that allowed him to update his prediction, or he managed to hack the site.

My suspcion is that he opened up the selection menu before the election, and hit "generate maps" after the election after he had finished selecting numbers/states from the vote totals.
