This contest was just for fun - there were no prizes to win, other than the fame and adoration
that awaited whomsoever found their name at the top of the High Scores list. I made it in my spare
time with no sponsorship or encouragement from any political party, organization, or company, and
I did my best to keep it politically neutral.
If you select the option to display your username and score, other people will be able to see
those two things on the High Scores list. This option can be disabled on the

If you make your prediction publicly viewable (by clicking the Share link),
you'll get a custom URL to share. Anyone with that URL will be able to see your username and the numbers
you predicted. You can disable sharing at any time.
Your email address will not be displayed, and I won't share it with anyone, and you won't be
automatically signed up for my hourly newsletter or anything like that. You can opt-in to receive a
couple of emails when I do things like upload the high scores list. Those emails will be sent through
MailChimp, and you can unsubscribe at any time.

Scores were calculated as follows: 676 minus the sum of absolute values of differences between predicted
and actual seats for all parties, plus 16 for correctly guessing a Liberal win, plus 8 for correctly
guessing a Conservative Official Opposition. Turnout was used only as a tiebreaker.
