All the histograms for the community votes are in the summaries each week:

And the final three are:

This is the major difference between the two lists in terms of rankings. There is clear and near total agreement on the Community Vote that Rasmus Sandin and Timothy Liljegren are virtually tied for second with Matt Knies a distinct full ranking point behind them.

For reference his chart looks like this:

So while there are a decent number of people who voted Knies second or third, note the variations in the Y axis, and compare his ~70 second place votes to Liljegren’s ~80 and Sandin’s ~125.

Remember the group is always listed at the top of the page under “Sections”, so if you ever want to peruse the old posts, they’re easy to find.
