2015 A Head Full of Wishes survey results

in categories:

Thanks to everyone who voted in the A Head Full of Wishes survey. Here's a summary of the results.

It was a good turnout with the number of voters reaching three figures and while the usual suspects topped most of the charts it's always nice to see how things change further down. We had voters from a wide range of countries including Lebanon (actually there's almost always a vote from there!), Mexico and South Africa.
