Battle of the Island Poll Now Re-Opened!

A few months ago we had to disable the Battle of the Island Poll because people were voting too fast, which was overloading our server.  We are now happy to announce that the Battle Poll is now open again, although with some changes.

Highlights:
  • You May Vote Unlimited Times by Posting.  You vote 10 times for your registered flag every time you post in the forum.  You are NOT limited to 2000 votes when you vote this way.
  • You may now vote 2000 times per month via the poll.  Once you have reached 2000 votes, you will only be able to vote by posting on the forum or by other authorized means.
  • You are limited to 1 vote per second.  Which happens to be the amount of time it takes to vote if you were voting normally.
  • Voting Too Fast Will Give an Error and May Lock You Out.  To prevent voting too fast, we have changed it so that if you vote too fast, you will get an error AND your votes won't be counted anyway.  If your voting is really fast, you will get locked out from voting in the poll.
Note: The secret method of voting quickly no longer works and will simply lock you out of voting while not counting your votes anyway.

If the code that limits the speed of voting works as intended, we may consider lifting the 2000 votes per month limit.

Other than that, Happy Voting! Big%20smile

There was an error in the Battle of the Islands Poll that prevented some people from voting.  The error has been fixed.  Sorry about that.  If you find any other errors, please contact the System Administrator.  Thanks.
