It seems to me people chose different forums and different taglines for 
submitting their articles to the contest. Is there a place that collects 
all submissions so I can vote?

Thanks,

I assume Walter will set up some sort of voting thread? The D wiki page quoted contains all the valid submissions (I did a newsgroup search in my news client for [Submission], and those 5 came up). -Steve

I saw Nick posted under [Article Submission], but fortunately his article is on the wiki too. Andrei

Does anything on http://www.gamedev.net/blog/1140-d-bits/ qualify? I see the author is Mike Parker, a D long-timer. Andrei

He has a separate post with just [Submission]. I think there are no "hanging chads" in this contest ;) -Steve

AFAIK, everyone who formally submitted (including myself) has recently re-submitted (all yesterday) in the correct forum with the correct tagline. Although, if there are any others besides those 5 (the same 5 on the wiki page), then I don't know about them.

What about Jeremy Wright's article "Parallelism in D"? It was announced in D.announce without the [Submission] tag (see the "Short article on std.parallism" thread), but it was posted in time for the contest. http://www.codestrokes.com/archives/116 -Lars

Aside from the broken search box (which seems to be very common these days), it looks fantastic on my super-old browser: http://www.semitwist.com/download/img/shots/codeStrokes.png

Ok so it's not the author to blame (I'm sorry for that!)

Something must be broken with my firefox. Look how my fonts look different:

I wonder what's going on. Hmm...

To me, yours looks the same as mine, just slightly bolder. It must be a sub-pixel rendering matter. I'm on a CRT, so everything looks fine to me without any subpixel adjustment, and sometimes sub-pixel adjustment will just make things blurry. You must be getting the wrong sub-pixel rendering for your monitor, although I don't know why it would only be happening on that one site. Of course, I'm just guessing on all of this.
