It certainly is good, but don't forget, cheating has been a major part of this competition from the beginning, so it's really no surprise the final has had a bit, I've been surprised there's been so little.

Creating another profile just for voting this is so stupid.

Petronas wins against Chrysler (although CB is a great landmark) hands down.

Petronas Towers are beautiful and of impressive height,
but yet I think the chrysler building has got more beauty in it. More elegance.

Its smaller, but of timeless perfection. My vote for the Chrysler Building

Sadly, it seems a lot of people have done this

The cheat amount in this finale seems to be minimum. And this is SSC 1st Supertall Tall World Cup. Errors are meant to happen. Lets hope for a better tournament next time. Hope it doesn't effect the final counting. I won't be happy if my choice won because of cheating. To me, both tower deserve to be a winner.

it varies according to your timezone. Voting starts at 0h and finished 0h seven days later, local time.

^ it actually ends for everyone 7 days after the start of the vote at midnight Pacific time, which is in about 6 hours from now.

As this one nears the end, I just researched the votes. I just deleted 18 votes for Petronas as I can trace these back 100% to multiple accounts. These accounts have been banned as well.

Just one last time, is it possible for future competitions to have equal quality images?

ie, images should show the complete tower from similar angles? I know its possible, i just hope it gets reinforced. I understand its not a photo competition, i'm not asking for one. I just hope to get a good impression of the towers when i click to see which towers are up for competition.

I also understand that we must 'KNOW' the tower before we vote for them. Its because i know some of the towers which annoys me when images are unjust to them.

The first way to stamp out cheating is to be fair with the images displayed.

There are no fake votes for Chrysler? That would be unbelievable.

^Then wouldn't it be unfair to only remove fake votes for Petronas?

Hopefully Jan will do a total recount after the poll closes.

^ see guys like these are a problem...

Some days ago I cleaned out a couple of votes for the Chrysler Building casted by multiple accounts. I didn't detect any of these casted in the last days. Weeding these out and being 100% sure of it is pretty time consuming.

It's always possible someone has registered a couple of accounts but the level at which I check now under normal circumstances these votes wouldn't make a difference. These are not normal circumstances though. There really is an even split between the two.

I will do a final check and recount when the voting is done.
