    I sent Top 4X4 sites an email concerning cheating auto votes. Here is a paste/copy of my letter and the reply.

    ramchargercentral.com uses auto voting for their
    >members. They have a box that they check that
    >automatically votes for them every time the login. Is
    >this a violation of the rules? If not then it should
    >be known to the others so that they can do this too.
    His reply:
    I thought about that one for quite a while and finally determined that
    it fell within the rules. Basically it's no different than having each
    member set their homepage to the voting script, which would vote every
    time they start their browser. (Well, it would really only vote once
    per 48hrs. Any extra votes would be ignored)

    So yes, you can tell your site webmaster that they can set up something
    like that if they want. But it needs to be set up so that each member
    has to decide for themselves and then select some setting so that they
    vote. It can't be a default for all members. Also, the members need to
    understand that they'll be voting for your site. Your members will
    probably already know that, but just be sure it's clear in the area where
    they select whether they want to "auto" vote or not.

    Also, when you pop up the Top4x4Sites window it must be a real browser
    window. (i.e. you can't disable the scroll bars or menu bar or make the
    window smaller, etc.)

    Email me if you have more questions.

    We need the auto vote! We can't let thosh Sheepheads beat us like this! If someboby else besides me cares about this you have my permission to use any part of this post to make your own post concerning this issue.

    If you knew the truth, you too would be against marijuana prohibition!

    interesting... that'd be a ice touch, cause I logon to like 3 or 4 different computers to check the forums every day... the commentary about setting the logon script for top 4x4 to my home page might also work too...

    It's a pride thing. Some people don't mind being # 2, personally, I'd rather be number one. Must be my competitiveness.

    Shouldn't it be called uncommon sense?

    Personally myself I am getting tired of hearing that everyone is cheating if they are beating us. We have been number one on that thing since we started on it with the exception of this month. Im sure everyone else thinks we cheat to but it does not really matter and it just makes us look bad when you all go crying that every other site is cheating becuase we are not number one. Just my .02

    I agree, 2nd place still means you lost.

    They aren't cheating. They're taking advantage of a loophole that we should be taking advantage of too. I guess steve isn't interested in making the necessary changes or he is too busy to do it right now. BTW whats wrong with wanting to be number one?
