My year-end poll is over here (on Dreamwidth).

ETA: ... I thought that logging in using OpenID was an option, but it doesn't seem to be working that way, and I know it's not everyone's thing. If anything sticks out enough to comment, I'd be interested to hear! I don't have the spoons to recreate the poll elsewhere this year.

I've done it through google docs, so I hope it works. Form is here.

Here's mine - it's a google form this year, so I can link from non-LJ places.
