S&L Contests: poll information *EVERYONE READ*


View Full Version : S&L Contests: poll information *EVERYONE READ*

Okay, so, you're setting up a poll for a 1v1, or a competition eh?

You must click the "make this poll public" option. Must. If you don't, I may close your poll.

The reasoning behind this:

- Clicking this box means that people can see who voted what. So that means there will be NO CHEATING. Now, I don't believe, or I wouldn't want to believe ;), that anybody ehre would actually cheat jsut to win an S&L Comp, but unfortunately, the sad truth is that people would cheat just to win a 1v1 against some perosn on the net. I am pointing no fingers AT ALL. But with this option, it means that people cannot cheat. They cannot.

So yeah, you want to cheat? Go ahead, make the poll without checking this box. I'll just close your thread and you'll have to remake it checking the box. Just save both me and you some time please :D

Thank you.

This is going to be so great. But I've got a question about it, do we still need to post in the thread and say which we voted for? I know that it'll show anyways, but I mean, would we need to do something like that to keep the thread bumped for more people to vote or does it get bumped each time somebody votes?

Yep, post as well.

That's one of the main reasons I wanted the switch to VB3.

Though there has been only 2 instances that come to my mind...haha....Im glad :)

Ok im new here but i get the gist of the S & L contests what is the average age of writers on these any1 now? :D:

10-01-2005, 05:11 PM
^Age range? Basically, the main regulars on here range from ages 14 - 21? Something like that.

But Alice, I have a question that has nothing to do with the polls whatsoever. If you start a one vs one with somebody at the end of the month, but the polls don't close until a couple days into a new month, does that one vs one count as one in the month you posted the thread or does it count as one in the month the polls closed? (i'm bad at wording things)

Um... it counts as in the new month.

eg. you start one at the end of september, it finishes on 2nd Oct. it counts as an october one. i think. Eaglestations is like the man in charge of adding up totals though, you may wanna PM him and confirm or something :)

There have been many suspected instances that the opponents didn't decide to be too vocal about recently too. I can think of four or five cases in the last two months.

i know this might sound incredibly insipid but if i set up a 1 vs. 1 challenge, i have to set up a poll with both our entries/songs/poems and the voting options, right?

02-18-2006, 02:19 PM

make sure the voting is public too.

set a time limit (for the poll to close) that you both agree to, as well.

okay, thanks.
