Thank you to everyone voting in last month's competition.
It's remained fairly quiet in Peer Review throughout April with only one new entry per day on the Front Page, but there are signs that it's starting to pick up. We'd all like to see more Entries, so please keep writing, but one benefit of the current situation is that there are fewer to choose from in this competition.
As is customary, we have a new winner to announce:
Entry of the Month, March 2009 is A47629317 - David Beckham's Red Card, St Etienne 1998.
This Entry, written by Trout Montague and sub-edited by myself tells the story of English football's brightest hope and how his youthful indiscretion dashed the hopes of an expectant nation. This is another fine Entry delivered through The Stretcher competition.
Congratulations to everyone involved!
These are a few which caught my eye this month, and which hopefully illustrate the variety of entries in this month's competition. It's not the full list, of course - there are a total of 24 Entries which you can vote for, and the last item in this list links to the Front Page Archive, where you will find all the others. As always, please look through the Entries and cast a vote for your favourite. Not only that, but please ask your h2g2 friends to take part, too.
How To Run A Webcomic - Everything you ever needed to know, with some valuable insider knowledge.
Lobscouse - Labskaus - "Close your eyes and get done with it".
Maigret, Literary Detective - A detailed study of Simenon's much-loved creation.
Monty Python's 'Philosophers Song' - Some old-style h2g2 song dissection.
Natasha Richardson - Actress - A tribute to the late actress.
Serving on a Jury in England and Wales - It's not all like 12 Angry Men, you know.
The Ashes, 2005 - a Snapshot of Sportsmanship - An evocative cricketing tableau.
And Many More .... from the Front Page Archive for April 2009.
Can I Vote?
Of course you can! Entry of The Month is all about popular opinion. So whether you're an old-hand in Peer Review or you just signed up yesterday, you are more than welcome to post your vote to the forum below.
IMPORTANT: Please post only once to the voting forum. Votes can then be quickly counted without having to double-check. Please do not try to vote anywhere else. Voting for your own Entry is politely discouraged. This system is reliant on your goodwill and honesty.
But I don't like any of your suggestions!
That's fine. My list is just a few which caught my eye. If you've seen something you prefer, please vote for that Entry instead. It would help if you could include an A-Number by way of a link.
All an Entry needs to qualify is to have been put on the Front Page for the first time in the last month. Please check the date on the Entry you are nominating. It happens that old Entries are sometimes put back on the Front Page for a 'second spell' ? you can identify these on the Front Page Archive as they have a little ® beside them. The Entry Of The Month must be first published in the month in question.
The competition will be closed at a judicious point towards the end of the calendar month in which the competition is published according to the following Post deadline, when voting activity has been quiet for a period of time. Either Icy North or the Post Team will announce closure by posting to the voting thread. The votes will be tallied and any ties will be resolved by the Post Team. The Post Team's decision on any matter relating to the competition will be final.
