Are these the only ones that can place in 2nd and 3rd?

They haven't said that. The original rules update doesn't adress ranking, though it is strongly implied that it won't be required to be in the FOG. They also declined to reduce the FOG to 4 though.

Really though this is week 2 of the new plan, and I don't feel comfortable making predictions without at least 8 weeks of data.

Science wants 30 Data points, so that's 15 weeks. I'm more of a psudeoscientist, so I play loose with rules.

EDIT: It's just occured to me, we've been Tea Bagged in the English FOG!

You still have a chance. Last week's guest editor's choice was 14th in votes.

They run slow. last I checked they were 12 days behind, but I think that's getting better. Definately not before Wednesday though.
