For some odd reason, I think the reason why many are voting (at least, in this contest) are not for effect or for the rules of the contest; but for the type line.

Either way, my top 5 (other than my own):
hiddenstump
Marzen64
fluffyDeathbringer
Asthanius
Pixi-Rex

90% of the time, I'm wrong. The other 110%, I'm right.
