    Re: DON'T FORGET TO VOTE!!! Forum of the year on The Reptile Report!!!

    I noticed someone on fb post that you could vote multiple times a day if you used different devices (phone, computer, iPad, etc.), which I would definitely consider cheating. I'm glad to hear that it was shut down before too many false votes could be cast, and thank you to all my fellow BP.netters that pitched in for our forum!

    Re: DON'T FORGET TO VOTE!!! Forum of the year on The Reptile Report!!!

    From what I've been able to gather so far, TRR considered votes from multiple devices in one household, and votes from non-reptile-keeping friends/family/associates to be legit votes. It sounds like the problem was multiple votes cast from one device repetitively.

    Unfortunately, a problem that I noticed a little too late to matter was that my boyfriend and I were voting on separate computers at our house, but they were connected to the same wifi source. I mistakenly thought that when I saw the "you have already voted" it must have meant that I voted for the day after the reset, not that they were counting boyfriend's vote for mine. Between the two of us, only one was getting to vote. Remedied that when I noticed I could vote using the 4G connection on my smart phone, but I only got about a week of that. Considering how close the numbers between iHerp and Bush League were, those extra 20-ish votes could have made the difference. Lesson learned I guess.
