I'm just curious, how do these sponsor servers work?

Something that's been on my mind throughout these updates is that there's a possibility for exploit through them...
I don't think anything like that happened this time, or at least I have nothing to prove it either way, but it's something I wanted to toss in the room as a thought experiment.
Consider the scenario in which an update is posted, revealing that you are in second place, with not many votes off first. There's one day remaining before the final results, so to test out a bit of a strategy you tell some of your friends: "Hey, mind dropping a vote for a couple of levels excluding the one currently in first?"
Could sound like a stretch to you, but also could not. Spite could also cause an uneven distribution that ignores actual level quality.
And how would one even go about proving this happens? Should people who happen to fall into a pattern re-evaluated due to paranoia?
Perhaps it might be best to not do updates, or do them more vaguely. Not revealing the level or author in the leading ranks, but instead perhaps just re-linking the downloads and video, to catch some people who missed the first announcement.

There's nothing like that happened this time. All of the votes are legitimate. I think that only releasing results the first day after voting and during the middle and only saying a reminder the last day of voting would do well. Or something like saying these 5 levels are in the lead in alphabetical order if it needs to be more vague. What do you think?

Ordering them alphabetically might be neat. I think it's worth testing out.
