Voting and stuff.

A couple weeks ago I put a counter on the voting links to find out who is actually voting and who is not. I know some people just click the link and get the turns and that's it. The reason why you get those turns is the help RoB in the rankings by VOTING. It turns out only 1/4 of you actually vote after clicking the link and claiming your turn reward. That is pretty sad don't you think? An extra second of your life just to click confirm or type in a 5 letter word. If this dosn't improve i'm going to have to start being an asshole and either reduce the turns you get, take it away completely, or just stop individual from getting turns from voting. (Yes most sites log Ips, so i can match!). If you havn't noticed, Apex has an incentive system where it will add your turns only when you actually vote. So far this month RoB has had 1257 votes, if i take another random site, on MM100 RoB has 345 votes. That just shows because you don't have to vote, you're not. Not all sites have the incentive system like Apex does, if i'm forced just to use sites that has incentives then your total turn bonus from voting would be decreased because you have less sites to vote on. It takes no effort to just confirm your vote, so please think about this the next time you vote. With RoB higher in the rankings we can get more players and more fun and competition in the game.

I've been away for the weekend, and i will now start to work on the underground, i have noticed a few threads pop up about it and will keep this them in mind, thank you :)

Just to clear a few things up with these achievements, NONE of them are buying VIP, earning points or anything stupid like that. I may be mean, but i'm not that mean :-P

Voting...

Most go through for me but some end up a white screen and I have to refresh or re-click on it.
It will say that I already voted but I didn't.

Just mentioning it in case some others have the same problem.

I've noticed that too...some of the links won't necessarily complete your vote at the time you actually click the link because it will say you've already voted for the day, regardless of whether or not you really have. This may be part of the issue.

I try and vote each day, like the others who have posted, I sometimes get to a site and it says I have already voted or I have to refresh the page. Many times when I try to refresh the page it still doesn't send me to the site. Other times I get to the site and there is no obvious link to vote for Reign of Blood. I do enter the series of letters on the sites that require it, but there are other sites where I just can't figure out how to actually cast my vote.

Maybe you could go to each site and if there is something we have to do to get to the voting area, possibly you could post a blog or announcement to explain.

Some of the sites, no matter when I go to them, say " you already voted today". I can go there just after reset or just before and same thing. Also PBBG Says " Voting Successful" "Incentive Unsuccessful- no incentives set up" ( vote there anyway) And some of the sites just take you to the list- without a voting option. It would be a help if you could make it so when we have successfully voted on a site it would remove it from the list for that day, so we can know which sites we need to revisit.

Ash when are you going to make it so you can send mass BL's and so you can loan weapons and armour ?

Jeffrey said...

well for staters, it takes WAY longer to actually vote on them than not too. If you want me to vote, thats not really a problem, I'm just pointing out that you were wrong on the issue of it not taking much time. (if i dont vote it takes around 15 seconds, if I do a couple minutes) The only real problem I have is that actually voting means I must do it each day because they won't let me do it twice a day (seeing as how RoB new day starts in the middle of the day for me, but I often do my voting on the same day cause I forget the night before or something). Anyway, wasn't voting, am now.

i do try to vote when i click on the link but like as other ppl have said theres some that dont have a vote option when ya go there and then theres times i havent voted for this game on a site but it still says i have voted already for the game i dont know if that has anything to do with me voting for a differant game or not

Voting... i do it everyday. i am having the same issues as some of the others about already voting and i get a black screen and there are sites that don't even have a place to actually vote for ROB, it just takes us to the site it may be there and if it is then its not placed properly, if you think we are not taking the time to vote and its an error take the turns away its a game it should be fun not tedious. i know you didn't say everyone wasn't trying to vote but people should be made aware if they are the ones Not voting and still getting turns. but i think its a website issue and not a player issue. thank you for the opportunity to discuss this ~~~Caelan~~~

hey ive noticed that some people (i used to do this but now that youve brought it to our attention ill stop)

but like theyll just ctrl click on the same link a ton of times and then just exit out of all the new windows that pop up...

so maybe if you were to make some sort of system where when they click on the link they cant click on it again, instead of just putting a stopper on when they click on whichever link however many times they do...

i hope that this helps your problem a little...
