I was giving the link to someone and brought up the voting page and it didn't even load the nominees, it just said I had already completed the survey. So is it possible for people to vote multiple times?

Apparently you can clear your cookies and vote again.  What a hassle to go through just to cheat.  And like Julilly said, you can't change your IP, so she can see when people are doing that and figure out who they are by comparing their IPs to here.  The votes just get deleted anyway, so not only will it not do anyone any good, but then you get the reputation of being a cheater.

Yes, but no. When you vote it creates a cookie in your browser telling it to remember that you voted. The next time you go back it won't let you vote a second time. But, if you delete that cookie your browser will forget that you voted already and will bring up the list again.

It all seems like a great plan except I can see every submission, and it sends me an alert when there's multiple IP addresses, and I can delete the multiples. So it's a lot of work wasted because they'll just get deleted.

Cheaters never prosper. I always tell my dance students that when they try to copy dance steps.

This is true.  How would you even feel good about yourself if you voted for yourself multiple times, or if you knew that your readers had?  It ruins the legitimacy of your win.

It's just like people who create alter egos just to leave themselves reviews.  What's the point??  Even if you were that desperate for feedback, how could it possibly give you any satisfaction when you know it's coming from YOU? LOL  Just look in the mirror and tell yourself, "I'm awesome" - much quicker and easier!

My thoughts exactly lol. I mean how do you even validate yourself that way? You know the truth, deep down, even if you pretend otherwise. I can't see why stuffing the box would make anyone feel better. You cheated a win, whoopie doo.

As for the review thing, that's another tangent but SUCH a pet peeve of mine. I mean you know it's not real praise, its just you faking it. Faking it still won't help you make it LOL. It won't help people think you're better, cause all anyone has to do is click and see for themselves. And having a high review count means nothing if you faked the reviews yourself.

Makes no sense to me at all. It's nice to get praise and compliments and all, but if you want it that bad, the best you can do is work on your craft. Cheating doesn't make you better, if anything, it makes you worse.

That's crazy that people are voting multiple times... You might as well just find someone with photoshop and have them create an award for your story in the category of your choice.  It would be the same as cheating for a win: meaningless.

Now the "I voted" sticker I'm wearing makes double sense.
