What are you guys worrying about and trying to come up with various things such as:
-Stop people which are new from voting
-Stop people from voting for their friends / alliance mates
You already came up with the perfect solution this year, just add us to the poll late every year when the voting is almost done. By the time we were entered to the poll Convicted already had 22 votes, which is a nice margin for anyone to cover. Do the same thing next year and you are likely to always win :-)
As Dino said you guys were added very shortly after the rest and one is able to revote elsewhere, so nice try sonny jim. Also, I suggest you look through the list of those who voted for convicted, do you really think any of them would have voted for LOD if they were an option at the same time? Look at the list again, I see about 4 of the 34 are convicted members who voted, LOD on the other hand....
Hmm...I agree to an extent. For awards like fighter of the year or manager of the year, I agree that you shouldn't be allowed to vote for your own alliance mates. But for something like Alliance of the year, I don't think it should matter. Of course your going to think your own alliance is the best, because to you, wins and loses aren't the only thing that defines an alliance. Its the brotherhood, which is something that outside members really can't see to be able to vote on. So I don't necessarily mind if people vote for their own alliance. To me its a minor award when compared to other bigger ones.
If the voters are unable to see the joyous brotherhood going on within an alliance that they are not part of then it should not be a factor when voting. I vote for what I can see and that is results and stats. LOD have been a solid div.3 (occasionally 2 i think) alliance, therefore I came to the conclusion that they are not the best.
Nah. I'm gonna be a hypocrite. Stop hiding behind the whole "I asked Mike about it because people were saying it". People were saying it because it was LOD. You asked Mike because it was LOD. Its okay though. We know the truth. I accept it. Like I said, Mike's word is bond. You guys just are way too funny.
So to stop all this bickering about who is right and who is wrong Grant went and asked the OWNER of the game to get a final decision and now that he made one you are butthurt..... It's just a game brooooo!
