[Challenge] Freaky February Vote-a-thon!

Greetings and salutations, Collectivites! Welcome to February! You guys did a great job last month, and this month sees the voting counter reset and some brand new enemies rear their heads. So pull on your voting pants, turn the lights down, and let's get to it!

Now, I know that you guys see our reminders in the announcements, and the Shoutbox, and on Skype, and in the Discord, and occasionally scrawled across your living room wall in the dead of night (Sorry, we learned social interaction from the wrong movies) but as always I'm going to take this opportunity to reiterate exactly how important voting is to the forum. Since the start of 2017, the voting sites - Top RP Sites in particular - have given us more than 9000 click-throughs from unique users! Back in February of last year, 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 the month before! Those are some pretty decent numbers, and hopefully you can see the difference your votes make in terms of the new faces we've been bringing in.

Unfortunately, the lower our position on the list, the less attention people pay us - and as anyone who's been here for any length of time knows, 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 Rick actually having to work for money to keep the site 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 December, we managed;
  • 1239 total votes - a tiny fraction behind our second highest month ever!!
  • After some serious competition all round (especially from a particular group of ninjas), we finished in the top three! A huge thank you to each and every one of you for making that happen.
At the moment we're still averaging in the high 30-something votes a day, which is good, but definitely a bit below what we're capable of. So please, please, please (please) remember to vote EVERY DAY and take every possible advantage of the ability to vote using multiple IP's 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 pay for RPGC to maintain monthly sponsorship on Top RP Sites, which nets us an extra 16 votes a day, 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;


Dubious and Terrifying Skull Necklace™!

Image

That's right - the must have spring fashion accessory is yours for the taking? After all, what says, "I only wear the top styles out of Paris and Milan" like jewelry made from the bones of victims who were probably murdered by some sort of cult? Also, it's haunted! That's like getting a free app. So get those votes in, and snap it up now!

Woo!!! It's voting time again!!
Ok folks, so at this point in time I just wanna break down what the playing field looks like for us.
At the time of this posting, we are sitting in 2nd place with around 380 votes. Like always we are being followed by our good friends and close rivals the "Ninjas" from Ninpocho, who currently have around 370 votes.

The strange thing about this month is the fact that the First Place spot is currently being held by a new RP site called Hogworts.io. This RP site, which is dedicated to Harry Potter RP, recently had its grand opening at the start of the month. Since then they have gotten a huge flood of votes coming in, currently, they sit around 455 votes. Compared to where we are sitting right now they may seem like a ways away but I know that as long as we keep on voting we will be able to catch up to those "Wizards".

So let's keep on voting guys! Not only do we have our friendly rivalry with the "Ninjas" to keep up, but we also gotta make sure we don't get shown up by the new "Wizards" on the block!

Alright guys, so another update.

Currently, we are still in third place, but we are only about 80 points behind the ninjas right now. The ninjas are second only to the Wizards who currently have 200 more votes than the ninjas (That's a lot).

SO, what does that mean? That means that we need to keep voting and try to close that gap on the ninjas! Even if we don't get second place this month let's at least give them a run for their money!!

It looks like all these new sites made Valucre, my favourite rivals, give up on the voting game.

Ok Folks, here is ANOTHER update from Trek (Like you really wanted another one!)

So again, not much has happened the last couple of days, Ninjas are still ahead of us in 2nd place leading by about 100 points, and in first place are the Wizards leading by around 200 points.

There are only about 7-6 days left of voting, SO MAKE SURE TO GET THOSE VOTES OUT!! Even if we don't beat the Ninjas we can at least get close enough that it starts to make them sweat.


Also, in case any Ninjas or Wizards happen to be reading this, I just wanna say congrats. It is really an honor to be able to see other communities like our own who have an active and close community. And even though we may crack a few jokes here and there about Ninjas and Wizard, we always intend it to be in good fun! So congrats on your standings and you should all be proud of where you are, even if you don't end the month off where you would have preferred!

(P.S. some Ninja should go and check on that Ginga Ninja account Wink, Wink)

Last day of February so...

1) Make it count

2) Prepare to hit those votes as HARD as humanly possible tomorrow. The longer we maintain a high position before the ninjas or the wizards boot us off, the more we'll benefit in terms of new members so please, please be ready to tank those votes tomorrow!
