Black Market May Issue (in General)

still looking to get daily voters. anything anywhere.

I've been voting, however, it does seem sort of fruitless.

I don't know if this has already been asked and i honestly don't feel like going through all the forums to find out so i will just ask here: Is it possible to reduce the number of votes needed to get them into the black market being as that we have so few daily players interested in voting?

If not, how about making it every two/three/four etc. days you can vote with the votes still expiring after two weeks?

Or, extending the vote expiry time?

And/or finally, any combination of the above?

The numbers have been reduced. And the frequency has been increased.

Lmao, nevermind. Just realized you meant that it's already been done prior my post lol.

It's once per day now IIRC. Was a bug, now it's a feature. I think.

No dice. It's definitely not once per day.

What makes you so sure it's not daily ?

Not sure if the rule is "once after every cache flush" or "once per calendar day" or "at least 24h after last vote" (probably the former rather than the latter), but it's certainly within the realm of the possible for one person to express up to 14 votes for one item.

Changed wiki page (there were no updates since 2008). Feel free to clean up my wording/formatting.

[Unrivaled]Twist Of Fate [SeeD] May 30 2013 4:13 AM EDT

Ok then it's just coming down to my timing. Thanks Sick.

DarkCloud May 30 2013 7:02 AM EDT

ok I'll get off my butt and vote

Start early Monday. If you want to be able to vote all week.

After 24 hours, unless you have a perfect timing, things come up, and they through your schedule off.

It is better to skip a days vote.. Than to vote on Tuesday at 11pm.

Yea it's probably better to wait, but it's a vote you can cast every 24 hrs and 1 minute. I try to vote around the same time but it's like I only vote every 25 to 36 hours
