Either bullshit, or 2/3 of the top-ranked people haven't logged in... or the system is buggy.

second 50 on Alt

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?
I like the idea about voluntary flagging of alt accounts. :)
As for the votes you cast - they aren't weighted based on experience points, but yes, a vote of "1st" is worth 5 points and a vote of "5th" is worth 1 point. The submissions are ranked based on total points. We store all the individual voting data and have experimented with various ways to run the numbers. This seems like the most fair way to tally the votes but suggestions are always welcome.
I'm really curious--I still have the level 10 boxing glove, and I'm part of the 2000, as seen below.
Just how many inactive users were there? How low did the 2000 go?
So often times it happens, that we live our lives in chains, and we never even know we had the key...
Starting on the 1st of each month, I'll watch every submission that wins the top 5 and then rate them on a 5 scale. Whichever has 5 and I like a lot gets voted.

So are there a significant number of others you would have voted for?
Spare a thought for those of us who haven't seen most of them and want to be totally fair!

A partially informed vote on this matter is much better than not casting your ballot at all. There are PLENTY of voters, and any ignorance you have of some great work will be more than made up for by the voters who have seen those flashes that you missed.
I suppose I agree that a partially informed vote is better than none at all, but I would strongly urge folk to watch as many as they can.
If folk rely on others to vote for those they may have missed, then we'd end up with a basically skewed 'popularity vote' rather than a genuinely well informed vote of quality as I think the panel was meant to generate.
I was going to suggest again that the voting time be lengthened to 7 days but I suppose if the voting possible winners are known beforehand, as they will be this month, folk will be able to watch them in their own time beforehand anyway.
Maybe that could be turned into a secret or something for easier reference than looking up the bot's various posts and the frontpage archive? Have a link to see 'the shortlist thus far' or something like that.
Personally, I'd like to see the shortlist be clearly available, but voting only start some days after it's completed, to lessen the sense of urgency and to send a clear note that now is the time to watch a few more movies if you'd like it to be fairer.
Also, maybe in future you could sort of allow other people to pick possible as well as yourself and the main NG team?
Maybe allow people to select a movie for consideration to entry, then others would be able to vote against/for this decision if part of the panel. Then based on their decisions, and maybe a final veto/approval from you, that entry could be entered.
As you mentioned earlier, it'd be nice to give recognition to those who fall outwith the top daily 5 and this may be a way of doing that and also pleasing the ultra hardcore like XwaynecoltX.
Holy Moly, someone actuall cares about a flash game. I'm shocked! Thanks for the vote bud!

I'm right on the line, I guess, #2196, so there's at least 196 people in the top 2195 that haven't logged on this month...
And FYI, my #1 pick comes in at Sky Boarder III Ver2. Good job, Micol =)
If only more people had the time, I'm sure HUGE games like mine would get more plays and perhaps more votes. Oh well, back to the drawing board......as long as someone out there actually will play one of my games, and at least one person says it was one of the best experiences ever I will continue to make my games even in this Movie dominated enviornment....
Woah, it looks like I'm even more special.

I think that the list to pick the top 5 out of needs to be narrowed down a bit. Maybe to 20 or something. That list was just too big.
I actually taken time to go back and rewatch many of the sections fro mthe start of the month, jsut tto make a better section. I hope to be done later today, and get my votes in.

I did the same thing ramagi i picked a top 10 then re-watched them to narrow it down, to make the best possible selection : )
I don't think users who just vote on flash should be eligible for $100 cash, maybe a discount for a product like macromedia flash or something. Maybe get them to be a contributor...
Now, I just wonder when all the voting will be finished, and when the results will be out, above alle. I'm really looking forward to knowing.
After all, this is the big premiere of a new revolutionary NG feature, that will surely change the website a lot, and will bring much things to Newgrounds, some negative and some positive. Anyways, I think it's a brilliant idea, and I really can't wait to know the 5 talented mothafuckaz.
I play lottery. I always lose.
LOOK at my CAR VIDEOS on YouTUBE !!
Now I just can't wait for the Friday to see the final ranking of all 150 submissions !

Well i do vote fair and i did rewatch the ones i didnt remember all that well i mean it does span a months of flash but im just saying we should have more then 150 to choose from, just my opinion though,
also i think the top 10 reviewers or maybe even active reviewers should be allowed to vote since thease reviewers see most of the movies on a day to day basis...
I've seen many of these now and I still am having a hard time deciding! I am also having trouble separating my personal favorites from others that I might not enjoy as much but think they did really well as stand-alone flash projects... this is gonna be hard. Thank goodness I have a few more days left.
Count the bodies like sheep to the rhythm of the war drum...
HAHAh i thought more people got it, guess i'm just one of the "cool" people :o
but seriously why is this shit still only 3 lines shit used to be 5 lines, HOW MUCH MORE FUCKIN BANDWIDTH WAS THAT TOM, HOW MUCH? Also, hot rosalina porn link ;D
I hope we'll get to see how many people out of these 2200 possible actually voted, in total I mean. and of course it'd be cool if we could see how many votes each individual flash got too.
After 2 days and literally hundreds of megabytes of transfer, my 56k is going to have to check himself into the hospital! Thank God for the 5 megabyte limit!
I just finished with my voting (nominated artist not exp. obviously) and that was a very difficult choice.
I think the system is good as is, and any increase in the number of submissions would kill any other dial-up users out there, especially any who might have jobs or lives...
