1 Failure to return votes...? on Tue Jul 19, 2011 6:29 am

Between yesterday and this morning I've gone down the list and voted for about 15 people. So far I've only gotten 2 votes in return. I know it hasn't been that long, and they still have some time, but what should I do if they don't vote back?

Quite honestly I'm near giving up on my whole voting thing anyway. I'm in 9th place with 20 votes. 1st and 2nd place have over 50. I don't even stand a chance. I thought a forum like this would help me get votes flooding in. I suppose that was naive thinking.

I'll look it over but that sounds a bit low If you find a member that isn't voteing back just hit the report button which is in the bottom of every post and a moderator or admin will take care of it. We take vote stealing very serously here.

Well there isn't really any way to tell who is or isn't returning the votes. Say I visit 10 threads and vote for the posters as well as post my link as a reply in each thread. If I get only a few votes afterward, I have no way of knowing which of those 10 posters were the ones who returned votes.

My particular case is made more difficult by the fact that mine requires registration on the site. I realize that people do not wish to be inconvenienced by this, but should that matter?

I found another forum similar to this one that had separate sections for easy or 1 click voting and "complex" voting, which required registration, email validation, or more than 2 steps to complete. Perhaps this forum could do something like that.

I think it would be a good idea to have a section for the more complex voting. Thing is, let's say someone posts a thread asking people to simply Like a facebook page. Then, while it isn't likely, it would be possible for several people to reply to that, Liking their page and then asking them to return a vote on things that all require emails or registrations. The amount of "effort" exchanged in such a case would seem to be very unbalanced.

If, then, there was a section of the forum devoted to those who wanted votes on sites that required more work, such as registration, then it would be naturally expected that the exchanges would be more fairly balanced.

I'm actually currently working on future features that may help with that.
I do susgest posting a link to your post first and telling the member to reply that they voted so you know they returned smile We discussed this earlier on the forum also A vote is a vote. Some hate to register but if you vote for someone they are required to return unless there is some type of country restriction etc. I'm looking though your profile and let you know what I find.

Well, I gotta be honest with ya. I've lost a lot of faith in this system. At first it seemed as though it'd be a sure-fire way to get the needed votes for my contest and win something, but it isn't going to happen. Out of the 15-ish people that I voted for, hardly any of them returned the favor (maybe 3 or 4 did). Even if they all did, I'd need 30-40 more votes just to win... so forget it. There's no use. I'm not gonna go around helping a bunch of people win their contests if nobody is gonna help me.
