Is "Vote or Die" a little too extreme for this particular contest?

And I hate that, just a way to get traffic to a site and really devalues peoples vote, IMO it should be one vote per poll and be done.


Oh and yes.... you guys got my ONE vote!

^ And we thank you for that ONE VOTE! See I can use exclamation points as well to get my feelings out.

For everyone else who has also voted I do want to say thank you for taking time out of your web surfing moments in your everyday lives to not only vote but to just be apart of this site. According to this poll we are within the top 5 most popular theme park news sites out there. Now that is something for not only the staff members to be proud of but you the members as well. We have a GREAT mix of members on this board and personally I feel like we have the best forum on the web when it comes to theme parks. Were also one of the only major sites that is made up entirely of volunteers.

Now for those who have not voted..... Whats the deal really? I just timed it and from clicking on the link to placing the vote took all of 14 seconds! You can't take 14 seconds to at least show us some appreciation? It took 4 hours to write the HHN Orlando/Hollywood comparison. I didn't get paid, I did it for you the reader so please take 14 seconds and vote for us!

Yes, thank you for the heads up! I just saw the reminder on my Twitter feed and voted again this week. Then I voted again right after but wondered if maybe there was some kind of voting limit. Got my answer here. :smiley:

Third is quite good! Screamscape had a huge number of votes from earlier on, so it was clear they were going to win. This year we have to start voting earlier push for more votes! :D

Screamscape is a "re-poster" he has no inside info, and if he does its the same insiders that OU probably has and everyone else. He links to other sites constantly, so he doesn't deserve it. This site practically fueled THEIR traffic with the helicopter shots of WW last year and they still get the credit, amazing.

Felipe
01-11-2012, 03:18 PM
I wish OU would have gotten it, but at least OU got a mentioned in 3rd place. What can you do... Other than we have to bring it on the next vote (if there is one). As much as it pains me that OU didn't win, let's not hate. It's all up to the voters, really. Screamscape benefits from all the other sites, but at least he credits and drives some traffic this way too with his readership. But yeah, it does sting that Screamscape comes out on top and most of Screamscape's content comes from the other sites around.

Thanks to everyone who voted. The sites that placed in front of us have been around for much longer than we have and in sense appeal to a larger audience. Despite coming in third we have to look at it in a positive light. We did place well ahead of other sites that are considered established and respected. We also have a ton of stuff to report on over the next few years and look to build on our success of covering the all the parks within central Florida. With all the things the staff has planned this time around the helicopter shot will pale in comparison. Were on our way to to #1 where we belong!!!

2012 is gonna be awesome!
