A: Contact me if you need to find your username, Do NOT make a new account.
Forgot your Password? Hit the "log in" button, and click "I forgot my password", fill out the form, username and email, to get a new random password. If this does not work please contact me here
Other password information is listed above in a link.


Q: I was banned, but would like to come back.
A: Contact me through this site
State your username when you do please.

Q: What does "proof of vote" mean?
A: When we ask you to show this, it means to show you voted. This can be through numbers that were given when you voted, ranks, phrases or a screen shot after you have voted. Please remember to give the "proof of vote" that was asked for.

Q: What is a duplicate thread?
A: A duplicate is when you open several threads of the same topic/contest. If you posted your contest in the one time(1x) section instead of the daily, do not open another one in the right section, as an Admin or Moderator to move it. Also, do NOT open a new thread if one was locked, you will be given a warning and that thread also locked.

Q: What is Vote Hijacking?
A: Voting for anybody else other than the originator of the post (1st person on page1)is considered Hijacking (ie taking over their contest topic by spamming it with your own) and it is neither polite, nor good etiquette.It creates unwanted clutter on a user's topic and makes it hard for them to see whom they need to return votes for, as well as making it difficult for the moderators to make sure all votes get returned. Also,those others that you vote for are not obligated to return your vote since they didn't ask for it in the first place.  Take it form another point of view. What if others did it to you? Please remember to only vote for the first person/post on the page, and make your own thread if you want others to vote for you.

Q: Why are the rules so strict?
A: Our rules are strict to make sure everyone is voting, and doing it correctly. We do not like having to warn members and having so many rules as much as members do, but we have to have them in order to have our site work the way it does. We want everyone to get the same amount of votes in return as they give, and to make sure everyone is voting.

You ask me earlier to leave a ? here.........my question is.....If your contest doesn't show specific voters how do you know for sure the person voted for you, even if they said they did?

This is why we enforce the "proof of vote", this is the only way to make sure you are getting your votes. Now, someone could just look at the page and copy and paste the number they see, not sure why someone would waste their time to load a page and not just click vote and then do it, but if someone did do that, they would be caught eventually, because most likely you have friends/family voting as well and someone might copy a number they did. For pages where there is no # you can always ask for a screen shot to make sure they voted or some form of "proof", although doing that for some people might seem difficult. Most members on this forum are going to return votes though.
This is why we have so many rules and may be "strict". These rules prevent people from just trying to "steal" votes from members. From what I have seen, when new members do this, they will either not follow any of the first rules or they will, but then just leave the topic hoping to keep getting votes, and this is why after 2 days, we close and move them, so they do not continue to get votes unfairly and use other members that have been here a while or who are following the rules. I hope this was able to answer your question.

Yes, that is how the site works. If you are asking on another thread, you would post the "proof" that they ask you to post, to show you voted, and then leave your link, so that they can return your vote. It is much easier than a member having to search through the forum to find your topic. 

You do not have to get votes that way, you can just post your own thread and just return the votes given to it. Whatever works best.
