I definitely laughed at it :)

im just not sure how well received it'd be.

I don't think it'll matter

I'm getting way too serious :P

For those of you complaining (aside from SMF Teamies and Friends, since we couldn't submit any entries), did you even bother submitting your own unique entry?  If not, then you have no grounds to complain, as this contest was open to *everyone* not on the SMF team or listed as a Friend.

No, I didn't bother to submit an entry because this is a feature I don't intend to use (I really don't see its value as a default feature either), and frankly, I thought you'd get hundreds of simple and neutral greetings to choose from anyway... Looking at the entries which got through to the poll, I guess I was wrong though, and even if it doesn't matter to me personally, I can't help but feel a bit embarrassed on SMF's behalf.

Stop attacking. If I had submitted something you would say that I'm complaining because it wasn't mine that won the contest. Only the ones who submitted entries have the right to complain?
I am not english speaking person so I left the submissions to do someone else, hoping that someone will submit something good. And they did, the number 4 seemed pretty good.
Besides, I do like the one that SMF has now.
My complaints are towards the SMF user base, not the team.

Anyway, as a voting result it's really not significative. If you look at it only a third of the people want that submission, and 2 third doesn't wants it (or want something else). It would be the winner only if it got more then 50% of the votes. Having one third requesting it is not a majority.

Usually there's another voting poll for the two highest ranked. The one that ranks higher between the two will be the winner.

I don't think so, I think that submission 5 is now the default birthday greeting.  :(

Or how about trying to mix good parts of all submissions into one perfect birthday greeting?
