You guys are awesome. I wish we could see how we're doing with this. There's no way anyone is going to catch the robo-voting from Montreal but I'd love to see what number we're up to.

I don't see why they wont let us see who has how many votes (outside of the top ten).

They made me stop for a "moment." So I figured I'd complain for a second, then say "Thanks everyone for the support! We are making a difference!"

Man... my wrist is getting sore for all this voting...

Nicky, This Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is for you buddy!

... ok, back to work... :rolleyes:

Does anybody here write Swedish?

I put in a good 100 votes for Mr. Wallin last night. And 50 so far today. By the end of the week I'll have sent like 1000 text messages. That'll be a record for me :lol:

Eeks, who pays your phone bill? If its your parents, keep voting :lol:

Yes, I can write in Swedish. Thanks goodness for the internet and translation sites. We also have a member here from Sweden who may assist if we ask nicely.;)

I don't speak/write Swedish, and I have never made a site in a foreign language before... so I have no clue how to do it. If we need to do this, someone is going to have to help me out... I don't know how to make images in a foreign language, either. If someone can explain how it works, maybe I can do it.

The NHL appears to be catching on to the voting automation process. You now have to enter a special code (displayed on the screen) before submitting your vote. Would've been nice if they figured that out before the Canadiens got over 100,000 votes ahead of everyone else in every category :blink: Then again, the NHL has always been a bit slow on the uptake!

Don't worry, I have unlimited texting! Woo hoo for that!

And I'm currently working on my t-shirt. Which I plan on wearing tomorrow. It's going to look awesome. I'm having a lot of fun with it ^_^

I wanted to bring up one other thing- about the website. My sister pointed out to me that the background on the website doesn't look good on monitors any bigger than 1024x768. We should fix that! I'll post a screen shot to show you what I'm saying, soon.

Looks like they just upgraded the voting security again by adding a captcha code to tell if you're human or automated. Would this not disqualify the first 2 days?

Better ask that to jb or legend, remember, I'm the technologically challenged one. If I wasn't, I wouldn't have needed all of you :lol:

Edit: I'm using 1280x800 and it looks perfect.

I don't know, is there a "stretch" command/tag that I can put in? I asked a friend about that, when I was making the site, and he never answered me. Sooo, anyone with the knowledge/resources can shoot me a PM. It would be appreciated. Thanks.

We cant, they had about 150,000 automated votes in before the league started to crack down.

I hope we didnt curse him :o

The only thing that would work would be a tag that stretches the background to fit the broswer size, but it's CSS3 and there are currently no browsers that support CSS3. So we're outta luck there.

I also can't think of any other way to fix it besides changing the entire background. But it's your design, so that's up to you. Hit me up with a PM if you'd like my ideas on changing the background though, because I could help.

And for the record.. I voted another 50 times ^_^

Wow, this is quite an interesting read:

No offense to all Habs fans especially you whatthepuck, but this was a sad read.

Cheaters = losers

That is an insult to the NHL fanbase. I figured that was what was happening, but to see how blatant and unrepentant they are about it...

What the league should do is keep the anti-fradulent programs in place, erase all the votes from the first two days, and add an addition two days onto the end of the voting term. That would be very unfortunite, but the only fair way to fix this mess made by these people.
