I'm trying to win an electric car(!) but am falling foul of someone who is sitting at home constantly clicking on her vote link. I have to go to work dammit. Any chance you lovely chaps could vote for me here like me on Facebook etc, and watch the frankly awesome video of me and Sophie?

THEY CHANGED THE URL ON ME!!!

If you win you should sell it, buy a proper car and keep the 15k you'll have left over aftwerwards.

It's "once per browser session", so one competitor is basically setting aside the odd hour and voting for herself a couple of hundred times (200 votes Sunday tea time with no promotion for example). I've asked them to start IP logging it to stop excessive voting but as we're in an office, a load of my colleagues are voting currently :)

I've tried to keep you within a 100 votes, but it isn't easy. I think your competition is on to me ;-)

You should win though as you've made a much better video and you have actually bothered to write a couple of blog posts about the car.

Heh. Competition ended yesterday. I was 1,000 votes behind at the end BUT they've appointed an independent adjudicator to look into voting anomalies.

LOL! Not surprised...!

1000 votes behind and you (and your missus) were pimping the clappers out of it? What was the other person doing? Knocking on people's doors on their locale, forcing their way in and voting via their computers? :)

Well, there were 35 blogs posts across 15 blogs, I was in the local paper, on the local wireless station and I had 3 times the number of comments on twitter compared to the "winner", who wrote 3 posts, one comprising of 7 photos of her dog.

She also proudly proclaimed that the IT subcontractors her husband uses in India were mass voting for her.

/sigh

Bet she's scurrying around trying to delete any posts claiming stuff like that.

Damn they should've made the pair of you face off in a 'hands on the car' competition in the local tescos car park as the decider :)

I screen shotted any offending tweets like that, or the ones of her sister joking about getting RSI from voting so much, as well as copying their permalinks.

For some reason that's got me branded a stalker :)

Thing is, they did all the bragging in the competition hashtag. They're not too bright.

Actually part of me doesn't blame her, its the organisers fault. What they should have done was a vote for a shortlist and then a judge to decide the winner. I mean, did you see my how many mummy bloggers can you get in a car video?

Oops, kind of a bad moment to mention I voted for you 400 times. :s

Ha. I was going to cheekily add, are her actions really any worse than your pimping, Bill? :P

Well I sort of tried to get real people to genuinely vote for me, not (for example) one person to cast 70 votes in 30 minutes.

I do get your point but I can't really divulge more until the adjudicators have been through the votes. I will say 5 of the ten entrants complained about her though :/

Will she employ a team of adjudicators to adjudicate the other adjudicators? :D

Here's hoping it works out for you bill/Alex/daddacool :) Your video was actually very good and you obviously put a shit load of effort into it.

I probably voted 70 times over the space of two days, but I did really want you to win :-D

As I said earlier in the thread at least you made the effort to blog about your time using the car in a genuinely interesting manner and not just as a blatant attempt to get people to vote your way.
