It's like, "I know voting hasn't ended yet, but I've already been announced the winner for the Most Creative Action-packed Dramedy Short Story turned Novella featuring Collaborated Male and Female written by the Best New Author... And after getting that award, I was eligible for Best Author and won!!!"   Grin

How did you know that's what I was getting!

What's even better is if you throw in "I know voting hasn't ended yet and I wasn't even nominated, but..."   Smiley

What even is an IP address?

An IP address is basically a little series of numbers that refers to your location and internet provider and account. It's unique to each person. So say, if someone here has another account and is posing as someone else, the mods would be able to tell. Why? Because the IP address would be exactly the same for both accounts.

So when people try to stuff the ballot box, the mods can tell cause the same nine sets of votes all have the same IP number.

When you post here, it's that little set of numbers next to the "report to moderator" link at the bottom of your post.

Forgot to add...

And if the mods wanted to find out who it was, they could just compare the IP that tried to cheat on the voting to the IPs of posters here on the forum, or of those on the actual site of AC. Cause they can look up IPs there as well. Smiley

Ok, this is starting to piss me off now...

STOP TRYING TO STUFF THE BALLOT BOX.

I'm going to start calling out people who vote multiple times publicly. It's against the rules. In fact, one of the people who just did it has commented in this thread since I posted the warning yesterday. Not only that but it was multiple votes for THEIR OWN STORIES.

Stop it.

Wow.

Not only did someone vote several times but they did it for their own stories?

How freaking shameless can you get? And really, it's not winning if you try to cheat.

Agreed, just call them out. The fact someone did that AFTER seeing your warning shows they don't care. Say who it was. Maybe then they'll learn.
