Wow. I like the other one, how it is decided by a panel, not random votes. Oh well.

When is that decided?

That's because it's taking the creators of the poll time to read your e-mail

I'm sure once they've read it fully the figures will start going again

Ohhh well, if its not regulated and made to be honest, then its for the best. If it were kept honest, I'm sure we'd win in a land slide.

With the contest at its current stage, its very unlikely there would be that much voting at one time. In the beginning of the contest, I could see a lot of people voting at one time, but not this late in the contest.

You did the right thing, ...we don't need no stinking contest to know we're the top Windows 7 site.

Is this the same contest as in this thread in the "General Discussion" section?

If the voting would been done better first, there would have been no cheating.

A simple solution : create an account with e-mail check. Registers through e-mail. Vote. Store username who vote. If he/she tries to vote again, we get an error and the current results are being displayed.

But, looks like there's people who do not think before doing that kind of contests... Now, it's too late to think of it.

It's not like the voting actually mattered as the main sites would have gone through to the final anyway, it's just that some users from our site and others turned it into some sort of schoolboy pissing contest of forum rivalry and that I want no part in.

I have no idea who this guy is and quite frankly he doesn't seem all that bright, but he did throw a bunch of malicious links at 3 top free AV products and the results were very interesting. Avast the clear winner in these tests. Avira was plain awful, while MSE didn't fair very well either: ...

Even the competition and nontech media are praising Windows 7
I've already explained why I think it's important to watch the media's reaction to Windows 7, and I have to say that this past week has been probably the most intense orgy of Win7Love so far. Let's take a quick look around the Web, shall we? When The Register asked Mark Shuttleworth, founder Ubuntu...
