That is the reason I don't think that I release voting results...

Seeing them may disappoint people from entering in the future, once they see how few votes they got (if any). It's not that people do not like your design, it's that they like other designs more.

Do you understand?

I will tell you that kipper010 liked your design a lot. ;)
