Just because something could be interpreted as a negative remark, doesn't necessarily make it flaming.

As for me, I think I'll refrain from voting this time around. Seeing as I haven't been paying attention to the forum I think my votes would be unfair and biased.

Well, the votes will probably be biased in some way regardless.

Maybe next year.

Moors? Who else is new?

What is considered 'new' here? I've only been posting in the art forum for 2 months.

People who've started posting in the last year or so. Sometimes it can be a little over a year, but the general rule of thumb is "decided to stick around between this year's awards and last years".

They really are a monkey wrench in things and I'm suspecting foul play, but I'll wait and see what happens.

I'm pretty sure you can safely ignore throw-away accounts that have obviously just copy+pasted another user's votes, without much consequence. I don't think this is a matter you need to lose much sleep over.

There's "suspecting foul play" and then there's 'still being in doubt that maybe she tripped and fell and shot herself with her own shotgun. twice"

Special magical mods tools say they are not alts of each other, nor are they related in any visible way. Still weird though.

I dont think your special magical mod tool can deal with something simple as a proxy-server though. its not that weird

Magic involves more than just IP addresses. There are rabbits, doves, and people getting cut in half as well.

I was voting for the Pokemanz thread as most fun because of all the participation and funny pictures, but now that thing is happening that happens to popular and/or great threads where there's a bunch of poor posts at the end that kinda ruin the thread's overall atmosphere and now I regret voting so hastily.

I don't see any reason why people shouldn't be able to revise their votes. What would you choose instead?

It would probably be way too much of a pain logistically for Jonny to keep track of who changed what to what from what, and it would create a lot of clutter. Theoretically though, I'd change it to Bob Ross, but I'd rather just live with it. It ain't a huge deal anyways.

They could be close friends? And I'm sure if it's the same person, there are still ways to hide and mask most traces.

You might want to consider adding a rule that goes something like "All voters must have X posts in the art forum for the vote to count". It doesn't have to be so much it affects any legitimate voters, but will give you a rule to fall back on when 1post/1day accounts are posting.

I second this proposal. The art forum awards should only be open to those who actually been a member of the community at some point in time.

To be honest I thought that would have been the rule anyway. I mean unless you're lurking here for almost the whole year how would you know who to vote for/be able to vote fairly. I know I don't post in the art forum too much but I'm at least here.

Yeah, this is most likely going to be the case. They accounts have never had any other posts, and one of them was made the day the post was made, so I will not be counting either.

This always just ends up with me heart broken and suicidal (not really though) because sometimes I like to think I'm good enough or contribute enough to be nominated and perhaps win in a particular category.

So the voting frame has come and gone.
All votes are finalized and will be tallied soon, with the results being revealed shortly.
