[Challenge] Dynamite December Votefest!

Hello boys, girls and dangerous apparitions from indeterminate dimensions! It's a new month, and you know what that means. That's right - the Great Voting Engine has been restarted and the voting scoreboards have reset, meaning we get to do it all over again if we don't want the machines to exterminate humanity.

Now, I know that you guys see our reminders in the announcements, and the Shoutbox, and on Skype, and in the Discord, and occasionally played to you via boombox in your front yard (We're sorry, Hollywood has had a damaging effect on us socially) but I want to take this chance to reiterate exactly how important voting is to the forum. Since the start of the year, the voting sites - Top RP Sites in particular - have given us over 5000 click-throughs from unique users! Back in February, following our very first site-wide push on voting, we received 45 new member registrations through Top RP Sites - that's compared to only 4 in January! For a site as young as we are, those are some pretty decent numbers, and hopefully you can see the difference your votes make.

Unfortunately, the lower our position on the list, the less attention people pay us - and believe you me, it's a serious fight for the top spots. This means that your vote could be the difference between RPGC drawing in brand new members and continuing to grow, and the Staff making questionable deals with dark forces beyond our comprehension to keep the doors open - so it's absolutely paramount that you get those daily votes in. And remember: votes are counted per IP address, so a vote from your computer and from your phone nets us two votes instead of one! The same goes for any wi-fi networks you access during the day.

So how did we do last month?
Glad you asked! In November, we managed;
  • 1200 total votes - just slightly less than our best-ever totals!
  • After some serious competition all round, we finished in third place! So thank you to everyone who helped make that happen.
At the moment we're still averaging around 30-something votes a day, which is good, but definitely a far cry from what we could be achieving. So please, please, please remember to vote EVERY DAY and take every possible advantage of the ability to vote using multiple IPs you might have access to!

Click to vote here and here every day.

Image
As Staff, we've committed to;
  • A minimum of 10 votes a day - This should be more than achievable, if not totally trounce-able depending on the number of wi-fi connections we can hunt down.
  • An additional 16 votes a day - We've now signed RPGC up for monthly sponsorship on Top RP Sites, which nets us an extra 16 votes for free!
* * *

I realise that many of you are busy, busy people with many social activities and dank memes and whatnot that take up your time. So obviously, I'm not going to harass you to vote without some incentive. To that end, I'm going to award this month's top voter this;


Slightly Water-Damaged Book™!

Was it cast into the ocean to protect humanity? What secrets does it hold? Is this simply an IKEA catalogue that's been submerged in salt water? There's only one way to find out, so go vote!

We're just in 2nd, folks, but the competition's fierce this month so go click those voting links. As always, remember that you get one vote per network; that means you're home internet, mobile internet and any public wi-fi all count as separate votes.

Good morning boys, girls, and any ninjas currently secreted in the ventilation ducts. Look at that. Another day, and another round of voting started in second place. Keep up the good work, folks.

As always, bear in mind that you get one vote per network - so your home internet, mobile internet, and any public wi-fi that you can connect to as you go about your day will all count as separate votes.

Make me proud, kids.

Suppose if they’re spying on us we should probably make an extra effort to stay one step ahead.

I'm sure there are a few of them who can't resist the temptation to come and spy on our awesomeness! So yeah, let's keep voting and try our best to hold this lead we have!

Fortunately, I think the kind of people who are likely to be interested in hanging out here probably aren’t the kind of people who want to spend their time engaging solely in Naruto fan-fiction.

Still be nice to keep them eating our dust, though. So vote, vote vote!
