Alrighty... this can't be right... Is it possible someone is hacking OfferPop?
Here's what's been happening:
My votes have been steadily climbing since I joined this contest on the 16th. I was holding first and second place. Third place (Lindsay) was gaining 2-3 votes a day, the others none. Then on July 23, almost all the pictures gain a large amount of votes in a few hours. (Phil - 80, Carmyn - 87, Lindsay - 65, Dwayne - 78, Michael - 54). I just happen to have my phone's browser window still open from the night before and took a screen shot of what the votes looked like then (it looked the same the following morning. I took another screen shot when I saw the jump in vote around noon on the 23rd. (see photo 1 & 2)
After that, voting went back to "normal". I took a screen shot on July 26th, just in case. See photo #3. You can see in 3 days, Lindsay gained 9 votes and Phil gain none and no one else gain any more votes either. I continued to get votes from my 'friends' here, (and moved backed to 1st and 2nd) and everyone else was getting none, except Lindsay - who gain 15 votes between July 23 and July 30, and was back in 3rd place. She was at 103 the last time I looked a few hours ago today. Screen Shot #4 was taken this morning (July 30th). Then today the same photos that jumped in votes on the 23rd, jumped an even larger amount! (Phil - 252, Carmyn - 242, Lindsay - 204, Dwayne - 228, Michael - 233) . See photo #5.
I find it very odd that photos that have gotten little to no votes for days suddenly receive 80+ votes over a few hours, then nothing again for a week, then the same people get 200+ votes again a week later in a few hours.
Here are the screen shots, What do you think?
