A bit of help........ (in Off-topic)


Zenai October 18 2011 12:08 PM EDT

Normally I do not ask for anything like this but I believe the circumstances warrant it. There is a poll for Preseason Player of the Year(Basketball), and I happen to know one of the players on this list. I have to say this is player is Top Notch as I have had a lot of time to talk to him and get to know him. The winner of the poll gets a televised home school game and I believe he deserves this honor.

Reason I am asking for help is because of the unfair advantages everyone else has had:

1. The poll started Wednesday, we were alerted to it on Friday.
2. You can vote every 35 Minutes, were were told 2 times a day.
3. You can vote across multiple platforms, we were told only one(PC).
4. Voting Ends Wednesday the 19th.

Player's Name: Shaquille Cleare , The Village School (Maryland)

Voter's Link: http://www.ihigh.com/centralhouston/poll_2793.html

I do not have much in the way of compensation but I can say this if Shaq wins with CB's help then I will definitely get a CB Banner printed up for the Televised Game.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give!

That's reason enough for me.

Voted.

Thanks so much everyone! I figured if they have an advantage it would be nothing but a challenge to CBers! >;-)

The dude's name is Shaquille? That seems like a pretty unfair advantage to me. :)

I voted, but he's not going to be able to overtake the #1 guy. The only chance is if someone writes a quick AutoScript for voting that somehow works for multiple computers, and many of us use it. You know, botting.

Works from my Droid, I can vote all day.

I'm not into cheating but considering what has been done........ I have never seen a kid work so hard for something. When others are asleep this kid is awake cracking the books or doing Basketball drills. When others are playing around he's working out or studying. While others are watching their tv shows he's watching film of the opposing team they are going to play in the next game and planning plays. Shaq is truly living up to his namesake and in my opinion passing it up.

This kid has greatness in him.

(had to add more as that exact post has been used so here is my extra text to make it original)

Joel October 18 2011 3:20 PM EDT

I've voted! I hope we can help him take third place, at the very least!

Zenai October 18 2011 3:28 PM EDT

Well someone let it slip what they were doing and I found a way to refine the process >;-)

Voting by cell phone: vote, clear history, turn phone off then back on, vote rinse and repeat. Same can be done with laptop Wifi.


Thanks again for the help everyone!

Zenai October 18 2011 6:18 PM EDT

wow looks like you can do it per browser type as well. BTW CB looks pretty nifty in Google Chrome :-D

DoS [Demon Forging] October 18 2011 7:18 PM EDT

They should be DQed for that. That's just stupid cheating.

DoS [Demon Forging] October 18 2011 7:19 PM EDT

For clarification I'm talking about the contestants utilizing the phone reset thing.

Zenai October 18 2011 7:25 PM EDT

Yeah I agree but hey it is what it is. So far I am Voting from 3 Computers across 4 Browsers apiece( IE, Mozilla, Avant, Google Chrome ) and of course doing the phone thing myself >.<

Zenai October 18 2011 9:39 PM EDT

Just wrestled our way into 3rd place! The other two are just plain insane..........

I really wish I knew more about programming >.<

voted will try to vote a few more times

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] October 18 2011 10:30 PM EDT

Well, I've put in about 25 votes or so.

Zenai October 18 2011 11:01 PM EDT

Thanks for all of the help ladies and gentlemen at least we got into 3rd. 1st and 2nd was a no contest they got 4K votes inside of a day.

moskel October 18 2011 11:24 PM EDT

That's the most famous case of rigging ;) The definition of marblecake is not G rated, do not look it up unless you want to be offended.
