    Don’t know what I’m doing wrong, but won’t accept my votes?

    I noticed that you said Dick Ruby won through paid votes but Dick Ruby was up by around 20 votes or more in the previous round. They may have had paid votes but voters put them over, not paid votes unless your numbers were wrong (Dick Ruby had over 100 and their competition had 80ish) when voting ended in round 3. Also, when you posted final numbers in the brackets Dick Ruby’s competition had more than they had when voting ended (and they apparently didn’t have paid votes) and Dick Ruby had fewer, making it appear that paid votes put them over, which it didn’t. What’s up with that?

  3. NotFred says:

    Please check the numbers, there is something wrong going on.

    There are comics that have LESS votes than while the voting was alive. Plus a lot of them have EXACT amount of votes that in Round 2, what seems pretty unlikely to me.

  4. NotFred says:

    If someone else was monitoring the voting as I was please go and check your comic’s numbers, I am seeing that some of them have a final amount lesser than showed live.

  5. Sage says:

    You’ve made an error on a few of the results. They should be as follows, as per the final results on the previous poll, which is still accessible.

    Widdershins – 96 + 25 = 121
    Skin Deep – 118

    Order of The Stick – 147
    Grrl Power – 182 (Should be winner, not OOTS)

    Dick Ruby – 108 + 50 = 158
    Freefall – 86

    Awkward Zombie – 140 (Should be winner, not SMBC)
    SMBC – 135

    I think it’s unfair to reset the poll at this point, seeing the effort some creators have already gone through to collect votes. But perhaps you could re-run the two games with the incorrect contestants on their own poll.

  6. Morgan says:

    So how does this work now with the updated poll, do we just ignore the incorrect contests and skip over them?

  7. Traci Harris says:

    I feel like you put a target on Dick Ruby by saying that it won by paid votes in round 3 when, in reality, it didnt. I’m still not seeing a retraction on that and your post about Dick Ruby winning through paid votes is still up. They’re getting walloped and I can’t help but wonder if that is part of it.

    • Glenn Hauman says:

      You’re correct, we didn’t retract the note about Dick Ruby winning via paid votes in round 3. But that wouldn’t have an effect on the number of people voting for SSSD, which is a popular strip in its own right and has had a lot of supporters in previous rounds.

  8. Yorp says:

    My apologies for my previous email where I erroneously reported an error. This time though, I am fairly confident that there is a genuine error. It is to do with the re-opening of voting for Grrl Power and the other three comics that had a problem.

    It looks like the voting is allowing multiple votes from a single voter. The total count does not go up every time, so it could be a false impression. But it certainly allowed me to go through the process each time, rather than sending me to the results screen, as with previous voting.

    And re-testing showed that the vote was going up periodically (although that may have been due to other people voting at the same time).
