In theory, yes... In reality, if I see two votes one right after another and I can't immediately identify the time zone of the player and measure it against CST, I'm going to put the second one on "hold", deduct the points, and request that the player provide their location and the time that the two entries were played. The forum does not provide accurate time stamps for posts and too many players have their locations hidden thus making it next to impossible for me to tell when a vote was cast. When the player responds to my request for information with a satisfactory response, I'll add the declined points back immediately.

I realize just how draconian this sounds but I had a player who objected to what he perceived was an unfair advantage that the European-based players somehow had in determining who the "winners" would be because they were six or seven hours ahead and so he decided to change his location in "Settings" to make it appear as if he himself was in the UK - He would then vote - and change his location back to the US so that he could vote again several hours later - and then change it back again to the UK - Vote again and then change his location back to the US and vote again - giving him 3 votes within a 24 hour time frame and 4 votes in two calendar days as measured from his actual location.

If I can tell where you're at and what time it is, it won't be an issue and both boards will be counted. If I can't, then the second one is held off until the requested information is received.
Oh, ok. I can imagine, how tiresome it must be to manage these games sometimes. The thing is, I sometimes vote around midnight and when I cast my first vote it's quite natural that the situation with two consecutive posts can happen (especially if you start your new post in the evening in my timezone - I live currently in Taiwan). Would it help If I provide the exact time of my timezone in every one of these two posts?

I quite surprised by the results here: Mostly that Rimsky-Korsakov and Saint-Saëns were eclipsed by Saariaho and Schmidt.

I'm also surprised that Reger and Schnittke did so well.
Schnittke is a giant of 20th-century music and is infuriating that he's been beaten by composers like Respighi and (especially) Schmidt.

Not to mention that Rameau (!) finished with only 29 points.
