have been following the votes being got by the leading 9 ME/CFS groups
along with how much 100th position has gone up by (101st would be
slightly more interesting but one can't see that).
For the last 7 12-hour periods, 100th position has gone up by
(chronologically): +39, +44, +53, +40, +61, +75, +50. At the last
leaderboard 100th was at 882 votes. That's with 2 days, 6 hours to go.
Looking at the last two jumps (i.e. +75 and +50) (it would be extra
work for me to calculate too many periods) apart from the IACFS/ME,
the groups have been losing ground.
It is going to be touch-and-go for lots of groups whether they get the
$25,000 or not.

In previous CCG contests, there has been a charge towards the end of
the contest from other groups. As is clear, the ME/CFS are generally
just hanging in there - not keeping up with how much 100th is jumping
up by but perhaps able to hold on if things go right. 4 groups are
within 85 votes of 100th position.
A few votes could make all the difference ...
