Arrgh! The urban myth that just will not die!!!
ChefTalk, over the past 6 months has averaged 3.16 5-Star votes per day .... 2.86 over the past 3 weeks. At that rate, if we never
got another vote between now and then, it would take them until Sept 15-30 to catch up to us!
Based on the voting patterns over the last 6 months ... approximately how long would it take the 7 spots behind us (if we never got another vote) to catch up to us?

Voting has been slower today (as of the 12-noon update) than average .... it's been a nice day for most of the country so I'm sure folks are out doing things other than sitting in front of their computers. But, it's still early in the day.
To make the Hall of Fame
we need 8,000 votes and 40,000 points. We've already got over 8,000 votes. And, we only need 83 more 5-Star votes to hit the 40,000 points. With our crew voting every day ... based on past averages ... we'll hit that 40K mark in about 4 days ... certainly before the end of the month.
So, while we don't need to worry about the #2 site "easily" overtaking us ... we've come this far so let's get it done
