Great plugin! Good luck with the contest!
Have you considered adding a title to the top_ranked-list links? Such as <a href=”blah” title=”blah”>
I tried for my blog (because I installed FancyTooltips), and the code is quite easy:
In “show_top_ranked” add p.post_excerpt (to the SELECT-list), and title=”‘.$post->post_excerpt.'” to the link.

Why the Popularity Contests plugin doesn’t work if Google Sitemaps plugin …

screenshots of the plugin on your site with bits of explanation would be nice, surfing the web for it or the forum takes ages and if you like to try it, wouldn’t it be nice to know beforehand how it looks?
ps respect for the effort anyway.
You can see it in action right here – popularity is shown per post, and there is a contextual “most popular” section in the sidebar.
Interesting plug-in. I will definitely give it a try.
