I'm the weirdo who purchased overtext solely for the purpose of stating that Kaffedrake's overtext makes me feel melancholy.

Contest fine print:
If a tie exists at the end of the voting period for any of the top 3 positions, a small poll to decide the winner/podium will be created (to run for, at most, a week).

Also, please remember that eliciting and/or soliciting votes for badges, either publicly or privately, is not allowed. Please do not advertise one specific microbadge or designer; let votes fall where they may, honorably!

Any situations that are not identified will be dealt with by the Microbadge of the Month/Year committee (currently zorro_jv, garion, and myself, wildthayne). The committee's word is final, but we're all quite friendly and won't bite your hand off. At least, not unless provoked.
