    Thanks Helen!

    Ahhhh... I don't have pictures, but I also don't have the flash player on this partition of my computer so that probably explains it. It's easy to download flash but I'm running a dual boot computer and would have to install a second copy on this side of my computer partition, which I haven't done simply on principle of not wanting duplicate software on my computer. So that explains it. No turnips for me! No videos at all in fact. I'm living in the dark ages to save a few MB of storage on my hard drive.... maybe I'm the turnip here...:D

    We're all turnips here, L'engle!

    Just voted and we've got 774 votes and have climbed to #7 - 6th and 5th places are not far away and some of the others seem pretty static while we're still moving. Keep going! Keep going! :victory::victory::victory:

    I just checked the rules and they need votes from 10 different people, so I didn't vote for them today. They are standing at 7 votes. Can a few more voters send a bit their way? Thanks

    The world has never seen anything like this - turnips this driven and this fast! And cute, too.

    Great to get up this morning to find more good news about the competition.

    I wish, though, that L'engle could watch the video.

    I don't know if this will help or not- it's the Utube link where it was uploaded

    helen41, I see you have nothing now. I wasn't giving out, just trying to be helpful - sometimes codes don't come out correctly. A sig with no link is better than no sig at all.

    ok Cort if you cast your vote i think that will be sufficient for the $50 for PANDORA. PLEASE STOP VOTING FOR PANDORA and go 100% for our forums from now on in. This is an agreement i have with Marly, i also provided her the video for PANDORA. THANK YOU!

    I think both kinds of sig have their advantages - one with an embedded hyperlink may look posh but the link itself is less obvious.

    To get an embedded hyperlink, you:

    1. Copy the link (just edit, copy this: http://www.igive.com/html/videocontestvote.cfm?vid=69)

    2. Highlight the text that you want to form the link (e.g. "vote for Phoenix Rising's turnip video")

    3. Click on the hyperlink button (look up at the toolbar within the "Quick Reply" box that you're writing your message in, that also contains the bold, italic etc. tools; the hyperlink button is the blue world with the two little grey circles at the bottom).

    4. Press CTRL + v (this copies the web address into the prompt) and OK

    Done!

    Lovely! Posh new sig! :victory:

    It took me about 10 years after most other people to find out how to do that so I'm happy to spread the knowledge! :Retro smile:

    Igive video contest vote does not work sometimes. Make sure your vote IS counted.

    I have noticed this a couple of times, usually around midnight EST, my families votes do not register.

    The vote should show up instantaneously. look at the number of votes the video has before your vote, once the page is refreshed if the vote count is the same as it was before you voted, your vote did not get counted. I know this because I have done multiple tests on the system. :cool:

    I have noticed this too. I am wondering if it might occur more often at midnight when many are casting votes for the next day? I also scroll down and check number of votes and then enter the others emails that I have, checking the number after each vote. It doesnt seem to happen when the site is responding quicker.

    Good note surfer. A yellow pop-up box should appear after you vote, confirming that you have voted.

    Our turnips are now racing in 6th position! Keep the pot boiling...I hear they like it hot...:)

    When the yellow pop up box pops up to confirm, I check the X to delete and then scroll down to make sure that the count has gone up, as it sometimes does not even though the vote was confirmed
