Perhaps also keep it open for a good while - at least two weeks or more - to give all our various members a chance to see it and vote.
I understand what you mean.
I put the "Other" in there becuase I know, there are 3 categories that I would love to have a blind vote all the time, if possible:
January: Wild Card
, April: Humor
& August: Free For All
Where as March: Nonfiction
makes more sense as a viewable genre, to me.
There might be other people who have similar ideas, so giving them that option allows us to discuss it, at least.
Of course, it could just be me, in which case the other 3 options are fine.
