In a recent photo vote, I noticed that the pic with a large lead rapidly declined in its number of votes near the deadline for voting. Users were very excited about the leading pic and were entering additional comments. Then they noticed the counts were changing and they began asking each other questions about this. The additional comments were cancelling their previous votes. Fortunately the original votes are recorded elsewhere in the database and I was able to recount and reset them to the proper total. It was disappointing to many to find out the vote totals online didn't show who was winning the contest.
