I'm convinced people are cheating in these polls.  3 people have voted for Miami in the last hour or so.

Bummer.  :(  They must also vote in Baltimore.

My favourite song (Cedars) was beaten last minute by another favourite (Miami). This I can live with.

It's still shenanigans though.

I fear, Droo, you may well be right.

I'm inclined not to bother going on with this tournament if people can cheat, like I suspect has happened.  No result is safe.

For Miami to receive 3 votes right before the end? I mean, I love Miami but come on.

Coupled with the Daddy's Gonna Pay loss to 40 at the 11th hour, and it stinks. Especially since both Cedars and Daddy's Gonna Pay were songs you posted about wanting to win. It's like whoever is doing it as an act of aggression against you.

A way to fix the problem would be to add a condition that all voters must post their two selections to have their votes count. Then we would know it's a fraud when we see people with one post saying they voted for a song at the last minute.

A small victory, but it still counts as a victory - Miami got 3 times as many votes as The Hands That Built America.

Hmm well the only fair thing is to put Miami up against two big heavyweights (Streets, Fly, Bad, or Beautiful Day) and a fan favorite like Blinding Lights, Discotheque or Acrobat.

Just make sure that any vote that is not stated for in the actual thread is not counted. You have to say what you've voted for, otherwise it's null and void.

* Sorry, just noticed Droo had the same thought.

^That's a good idea. But I'm wondering, who in the world would waste their time trying to manipulate the voting results? :P
