    I am curious about this statistic: 1,240 visited the site during the election, 1,263 visited the election page This is out of line with previous elections, where about half the visitors hit the election page, and is especially odd since more visited the election page than the site. Is this a typical thing that happens during site elections on other sites?

  • @Vaishali I went two for three, not terrible. I only expected one of my picks to win. Feb 5, 2014 at 17:10
  • Congratulations! I hope the lag between Europa and Earth won't be an issue ;)
