Sounds like red handed justification of fraudulence, but what do I know.

I am pretty depressed that I didnt win the 2nd place prize (couldnt just delete the cheaters votes?), but im happy knowing that my whole office, and most of my classmates, 90% of which are smokers, now know about volcano, and are looking into the site more. I have shown my rig off before, yes, but now they all have a reason to come take a closer look. No hard feelings about the lost victory(still pretty upset though), I will still be shopping here, and now so will the people I told about the contest...


Davis,
I understand your grief.......my vote didnt place in the top 3 and was in the top 3 originally. Problem was, we did delete tons of votes, but in the end decided to do a quick poll because we know a quick poll would be real votes from real fans. If people are cheating and were catching it,who knows what votes are real anymore. People can take the 5 days of voting and tell there whole family to register and vote, people who have no interest in ecigs and vaping. This is technically not cheating, but is unfair for people who want a fair contest. We decided last minute to take advantage of the 90 people we had in chat to vote in a 3-4 minute time span, this would take someone way to long to register new people in the forum and gather votes. This will be the way we vote from here on out on future contest. We have done so many contest now, and every time someone cheats.
I also want to make very clear that the contestants are not to blame for the cheating. we found certain ips from non-contestants registering new people to the forum and voting. Please do not blame any contestant for cheating, or presume a contestant was cheating. Even from our stand point it is impossible to know.
Again, I greatly appreciate everyone's participation...lets celebrate these winners, they deserve it!!
We have to learn the hard way before we make the best solution and I think chat voting will be the best way. More contest to come!!

Joe,
Agreed. I like the solution.

Kraylen,
Nothing obviously, since campaigning is how presidents are elected each term.... plus it brings new customers to the people giving away free stuff, thus ensuring more free stuff.

come on folks lets play nice, shall we.

we are not blaming anyone, for it. We just saw an issue and found a good last minute solution to correct it. Lets all sit down vape an Inferno with a Magma tanko on it with a tank full of "?" and treat it as the new style peace pipe. Who's in?

Grats to all winners and all who didn't. all the pics were great.

just my two cents... or maybe one cent. :P the only problem i have with the voting during chat is Due to my work there is no possible way for me to ever make it to the voting time. but anyway, i love the contests and people do need to play nice because it is always in good fun and everyone does great with the pictures.

again, cheers to all who participated in the contest.
