Whew, we’ve reached the end of another competitive contest, and today’s results will decide who earns the title Mississippi’s Preservationist Extraordinaire. Earlier in the week, W. White took the lead and held it for two days before tsj1957 battled back for a tie on Wednesday and took a one-point lead yesterday. We’ve set some records this week y’all! Yeah, ok they’re nerdy records, but still . . . most comments on a post so far: 42 on Wednesday; most views in one day: 635 on Thursday (blows the previous record of 350 out of the water). I’m excited to see all you knowledgeable people throwing your hats in the ring, and I hope that by the time the next contest rolls around, we’ll have even more people so enthusiastic about Mississippi’s architecture.
Business calls me to Natchez today, and since I’m clueless about how to use a cell phone much less one of those fancy smart phones, I’ve asked doakley, former MS Preservationist Extraordinaire, to help moderate the discussion and help keep y’all in line long enough for me to make it back and declare the winner. However, she won’t be able to help you get out of spam or moderation if your comment gets sent there. I’ve tried to unclick every box I can to make sure all comments get through today, but if yours doesn’t, make sure to go into WordPress.com and sign in first with your e-mail and then comment. I hope it won’t be a problem.
Good luck, and I’m looking forward to seeing who has pulled out the victory later this afternoon!
