I have voted for on all of the photos I was allowed to (i.e. all but my own) in the Lucky 7 & Landmark challenges.

The stats for the Lucky 7 challenge shows this:
Stats: You have rated 259 of 260 images (100%) in this challenge.

The stats for the Landmark challenge shows this:
Stats: You have rated 144 of 145 images (99%) in this challenge.

In both challenges I have voted for all but one photo. One says 100% and the other 99%.

Is this a site bug? It just made me think that I missed a photo in the Landmark challenge.

you cn't vote on your own photo......144 out of 145

This is due to the rounding off factor.
Lucky 7: 259 out of 260 = 99.6% rounded up to 100%
Landmark: 144 of 145 = 99.3% rounded down to 99%

0.5 and > rounds up
<0.5 rounds down.

Yes, I know you can't vote on your own photo. That wasn't the issue. It was the percentage numbers I was questioning. Thanks, though.
It has been answered via the rounding comments.
