That was a low blow from a former mod... Your not getting the big picture here lv... we vote to get CC at #1... new people flow into the trap formally known as Conquer Club, lack gets even more money and makes a few updates.

I would think that the "In" is how many people went to the came site from that link and "Out" is how many who have left the game site. Now the Number 1 Game Site Link (!@*&^*^) has 7027 In and 7818 Out. That means they take hostages when they leave the site. :-)!


They also had all month to vote, we just started voting as we just heard about it, its already the 27th where I live... that is why we are suppose to start voting next month on the 1'st.

I dont think that is what the In and Out's mean tho... I think its In is how many votes of course... and out is "out of how many people"... I voted 3 times today, but the out number stayed the same...?

-griff



both of your theories don't make sense at all.

like i said before this option is the most likely:

IN = the amount of people that followed that link and voted for Conquerclub
OUT = The amount of people that followed THEIR link TOWARDS conquerclub.

sensfan wrote:We've sneaked up to 11th. Andy, can you explain the 'in' and 'out' scores at the voting page.


i assume IN means the amount of votes for conquerclub and OUT means the amount of visits from that website towards conquerclub.


This indeed my understanding of it as well.

I voted, but does it doesn't say anything like "Thanks for voting"?

CC is #11 only 2,000+ votes down from #1... should be a party climbing to the top!

-griff


Some websites have a 'Thank you for Voting' page, and some do not. It seems to be preference of each individual website.

This campaign idea was set-up by myself, so it wasn't taking any time away from Lack's coding time or updates. ;)

Some of the re-captcha images are indeed difficult to understand---that is why they've tasked the human mind with figuring 'em out for the books!

These exercises are largely futile efforts. As always, the real winner is the topsite owners who convince other sites to drive traffic to their topsite.

You are also driving users to competing sites and will certainly lose a percentage of users to this. Also the type of users gained from sites like these are low value and flighty. I can't say there will be a net gain or loss in users over the year, likely a small gain, but it certainly would not justify the massive effort put forth by users and admins.

There are better avenues for community voting than lame topsites.

There is certainly a chance it is futile effort, but I think we can have fun with the undertaking. And this undertaking is hardly a massive effort. ;)

As for competing websites, if users want to play, uh 'King of the Mafia,' by all means do so. I don't think we are quite in the same niche. :D

Lame Andy, signing off.

I understand the theory...but I know that people are walking out the door because updates arent churning out....especially ones that are desperately needed. Like a baby sitter feature.

We're in 8th place: the in/out resets every 30 days so everyone starts on the same page in August.

Heres some free advice for you lack. no programming required.

let all your mods have a private vote every 6 months if they are happy with their immediate superior. No point in keeping empowered mods in place that make the site no fun to work in.
