Your thread wasn't created early--the problem is that you were the one who made it.
Ah, that sounds meaner than I intended. Let me rephrase that: your topic doesn't have a poll, which voting requires (we don't do it the same way as nominations, nor do we private message the topic creator with our vote--no, we click a couple buttons to decide who wins POTM).
A proper POTM poll also has its results hidden until a set date, which is something only moderators can do. I suggest you read the POTM rules
, but in case you don't feel like going through a couple bullets, here's the specific rules pertaining to this topic:
Up to 10 nominees (with the most nominations) will be included in a poll to be started by a POTM moderator after the nomination process is over.
A POTM mod starts the topic. There has been an exception
to this rule, but because the topic was created by a normal member, the results were visible to anyone at any time, which is avoided for POTM. Futurefreak has stated
that, if a mod is extremely late in creating a POTM poll, as they were last month, a member may be allowed to create a poll. However, the mods are not
late this month (though they still have the potential to be), and your topic does not contain a poll at all.
 Oh, it appears that a poll was added before I could send this, but I think I'll leave the message there all the same.
But see, now you've got the candidates all messed up. Nasty Pasty is not eligible for this month, as tnuk
have already said. [/edit]
