I was wondering how this would work out, since we only had 23 entries, increasing the risk of any one weird projection screwing up the aggregate. But the Community Projection came out smack-dab in the middle of the others. As usual, James is the most optimistic. Forecaster, usually the most pessimistic, came out in the middle this time. Personally, I think any of these outcomes are quite possible, although I think something towards the lower end of the spectrum is most likely.
