looks good, although choosing the top 5 favs would take some time.No, we track for alt accounts in the voting process, so that would be a bad idea. :)
question: do people who have alt account allowed to vote with them as well? i have a level 12 account that has the link in the menu and i was wondering about it.
I was wondering about this while reading the front page post and checking out the FAQ page and the actual voting page.
This alt account AND another one I've set up for my gf in the future are both in the top 2000 exp, so I have links on ALL three accounts. I figured it probably wasn't intended that I vote with all three (what would I do, anyway? Vote for the same 5 movies with all three accounts? Or perhaps pick 10-15 movies so I wasn't limited to 5? Eh... too many decisions/choices), but it's good to see that confirmed here in this topic.
HOWEVER, I have two questions:
Firstly: Since I won't be voting with this account or my other alt, but only with gfoxcook (#7941), those two links will go unused, and two of the "top 2000 by activity" won't have voted. There are undoubtedly at least 100-200 (if not more) other accounts that are alts and within the top 2000 and active.
So that means that the "2000 voters" panel is more like a 1500-1800 voter panel, unless a lot of people decide to disobey Tom and go ahead and vote with their alts. I'm not sure either outcome is too great. We really need a system to put a checkmark on our alts and say "this is an alt account of THIS main account" and then fill in the id# of our main account... so that the alt accounts don't get to vote in these top 5 250 buck flash contests each month... and that getting exp for our alts doesn't invalidate our main account's chances to win the 100 bucks for depositing each month.
Secondly: Are the votes at all weighted? By that, I mean by the exp of the user, like our votes are on the portal? Or does everyone have an equal say of the 2000 (well, 1800 or whatever)? And if that's the case, then how do the 1st/2nd/3rd/4th/5th votes weigh differently? Is it basically 5 votes for 1st, 4 votes for 2nd, 3 votes for 3rd, 2 votes for 4th, 1 vote for 5th? And then tally all the votes up?
Apologies if either of these has been answered, I only scanned page 1 due to lack of time right now (and I assume that while my second question may have been answered, I really doubt the first one was... but who knows).
