If anyone would like to help me win a boat contest, go to www.wfn.tv (http://www.wfn.tv) look for the Adopt an angler contest, go to view submissions and find my name, last count around 32nd place and please vote for me. There is nothing I like better than fishing when not in the shop. Only problem is , I don't have a boat. help me out and i'll take you fishing on the new boat. Thanks, Sean

Sean,
Just voted for you. With that vote please promise me you will learn how to boat first before you go out fishing. Too many bass boaters are morons on the lake and the ramp. Just remember we are all out there to have fun.
Good Luck,
Greg

No, you shouldn't be getting any spam. I don't think it goes up a place with each vote, at least not every vote. I'm sure there are lots of people voting for different people at all times so it kind of goes back and forth. thanks, Sean

I just voted 3 times, bumped you to #12. After 3 votes, it remembers the IP address, the message says you have to wait 24 hours. I might try to delete cookies for more voting later

FYI, if anyone is afraid of giving out a real email address, just type in zzz_ @mailinator.com , you can type any text at zzz_

Any emails sent the address are file-13'ed by the service

Thanks Craig. It appears that is what everyone is doing in the top spots and thats why I still need a big boatload of votes from as many people as possible more than one time. Thanks again

Just ran CookieCleaner (CC Cleaner), still got the following message:

:: You have already voted multiple times from this computer for this entry in the last 24 hours.

So unless i get creative with some IP Address mask/generator, 3 votes per 24 hours per computer is the max of what this creeker can deliver.

10- How will the contest entries be judged for the Grand Prize?

Each Criterion will be weighted equally. These 10 semi-finalists will then be reviewed by a panel of four (4) industry experts selected by WFN and the winner will be chosen based on the Criteria. The odds of an entry being selected by the judging panel depend on the number and the caliber of entries received.

Thanks again for all the votes. I need to stay in the top ten for any chance of winning anything and the next two days will be tuff as I would imagine everyone will be trying for votes to get in the top ten or to just stay there. I still need lots of help for the next two days please. Remember, you can vote three times in a row from each computer thats not on the same network. Just use 3 different e-mails. Refresh your page after each vote to get a clean voting screen again. Thanks !!
