    Let's try to get to the 11th place

    It's a weird voting mechanism. I can vote here http://apps.facebook.com/contestshq...01078?ogn=facebook&order=votes&view_entries=1 and again here http://wildfireapp.com/website/6/contests/68294/voteable_entries/list?ogn=website&order=votes

    maybe we should contact the organisers to ask how to give a legit vote and if we can follow how we are doing in a ranking. Can someone please do this? Apparently you don't need to 'like' the application on facebook, but you have to grant 'Contests' acces to your details.

    I'll send them an email. They actually phoned my daughter yesterday re the way she uploaded her entry and told her they were still working out kinks and it is their first contest. At least this time we can fix things sooner rather than at the end!

    If all rules are clear i will do the nescesary promotion. I doesn't matter if we wait a few days, because every facebook account can only vote once. Please also ask your facebook friends to vote. It's very simple, just send them to the link: http://tiny.cc/iavc6 and let them click on vote, that's all!

    this is the reply
    So after doing a little research myself I think I can now properly answer your questions... After looking into this, it should not be possible for the same user to vote more than once. However if some of your colleagues have for some reason done this, please let me know right away. I would appreciate your honesty very much, and would not want to have some problem later down the line. As long as each visitor is unique (which they have to be anyway with the program) as is well... Good luck on your contest and I appreciate your participation very much!...In regards to the voting (rankings), at this point I don’t think we are disclosing them to the participants. If for any reason this changes later on, ill let you know.

    Sound like we are just fine.

    Helen,

    Yesterday I managed to vote. I can't remember what all I did, but eventually I saw the tick you mentioned.

    I watched the video and laughed, just as I did when I saw it the first time last week. You are truly generous to spend the time to make this cute video.

    The biggest Dutch forum is joining in Voting forces, and Tuha will also post it at a Slovakian forum
    I also made the people of the WHAT About ME documentary aware, they will hopefully publicise it to there facebook page (it has +2500 members)


    Let's rise to the TOP 5!

    I think asking people personally trough your facebook chat is a very effective way to collect votes. Here's a template text for it:
    *NAME* help support the ME/CFS community by voting on this page: http://tiny.cc/iavc6, thank you!

    Still at #7. We need more votes, and positive comments on the voting page would be helpful too, because people are able to vote for more than one entry.

    Another little idea is if people see a message on it anywhere on Facebook, to "like" it.
