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.

We're climbed to position 8, position 5 means $1000, keep those votes comming, ask a friend!

PANDORA in the person of Marly Silverman is aware of the contest and promoting it
A mailing was send out trough the action mailing list (480 ppl)
I will soon put this on the biggest dutch ME/CFS forum

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 wrote to the ME/FM Action Network yesterday suggesting they plug it (forwarded the action E-mail).

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!

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