    Other sites use various methods to cheat on the voting.

    I'll be honest here, I used to vote but I don't anymore. I don't really know why, I guess part of it is because I don't like competing with cheaters? It also seems like the link disappeared off some of the pages for awhile and I got out of the habit of clicking on it.

    Auto voting...making visitors click on a link before they can enter.

    I've also seen people bragging that they set up multiple machines at their work to vote as it logs onto the network, or writing scripts that release and renew IPs and vote over and over...

    What does the voting do for us?
    Does Steve get $$$ for the amount of votes or is it just something to show status /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    dont think pirate4x4 is very high on the list either. [shrug] I vote on occasion, but really, Im not sure if it matters too much. CK5 is a great site, with great forums and cool member discounts. Any1 looking for a fullsize chevy www site is bound to find the place, so its not like being #1 on the voting list is gonna make or break the site.

    Note that ranking is based on monthly stats. In overall votes, CK5 is still #1 /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif by like 10k votes. They should do the ranking by overall votes IMO.
