So basically, this is a thing that the Japanese Touhou wiki does (just about) every year to determine what the (Japanese) fandom thinks of Touhou's characters and music, with occasional other categories such as spell cards. As the poll is set up, there's a sort of predicted estimate beforehand, but I'm not sure how that part works. The simple bit is the number of "points" each votee got by the end of the voting, which determines their rank for the year. Simple, eh?
Now, let's see how this year's character poll turned out.
Can't read Japanese? Never fear! The one and only Selphos is here with a plaintext translation of the characters with their ranks and points, but admittedly I basically gave up towards the end where it gets all obscure.
I know the format isn't perfect, but the forum's post mechanics didn't make it easy. This took up three hours of my life, please appreciate it. >:
Expected someone to be higher? Surprised your favorite is so low? Generally in disbelief at how weird some of the entries are? Brimming with praise to flow out of your mouths in my general direction?
