[Challenge] Jumpin' June Voting Jamboree!

Hello again, deviants! That's right, the rumours are true - it's officially June, which means the rainy season in Scotland has now reached a definite middle, and the voting supercomputer has reset the counters for another month. So grab your voting pants, pack a lunch, and let's get to climbing that scoreboard!

Now, I know that you guys see our reminders in the announcements, and in the Discord, and occasionally scratched onto your wall in the dead of night (Sorry, we've tried to keep Rick indoors, but he's just too small to be successfully fenced in) 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 10,000 click-throughs from unique users! Back in February 2017, following our very first site-wide push on voting, we received 45 new member registrations through Top RP Sites 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 Georgie having to go on the road as a travelling 'World's Least Movie-Savvy Woman' act so we can pay the bills - 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! After some tough competition, our final numbers were;
  • 1,144 total votes - one of our lowest scores since the start of the year, sadly
  • After a frantic battle, we ended the month in 5th place on Top RP Sites
At the moment our daily votes are barely scraping 30, which is way lower than we usually manage. So please, please, please (did you hear me say 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'm still offering voting prizes for our Top Voter, because nobody's ever tried to claim them and it amuses me - so this month's Voting King and/or Queen will net themselves some;


Darkblade's Specialty Waffles™!

Probably takeout. Maybe out of date. Definitely an adventure. Get to voting, and this culinary wonder could be all yours!

Hey guys,

The ninjas took over in the night! Please, please vote as many times as you are able and remember that home WiFi, work WiFi, phone data, public hotspots etc. all count as separate votes even if made from the same device!

I'm sure some of you have noticed that the forum is going through a little bit of a quiet spell. This has been caused, or at least not helped, by the fact that several other sites are absolutely running away with the votes on TopRPSites which has really had a knock on effect on the level of site traffic and new member registrations. I know when something is mentioned a lot (and I know voting is mentioned a lot you can sort of become a bit numb to it so I thought I would drop you all a quick line just to remind you how important this ranking list is to our lovely forum and to very nicely remind you to please try to vote as many times as you are able each day.

You can vote here.

Based just on our current daily activity levels, we should be getting at least 60 votes a day (and that's if everyone who logs in each day only gets to vote once), almost double our current rates.

So, please, please support the site by quickly clicking those buttons each day and remember that Home Wifi, Work Wifi, Public Hotspots and Mobile Data all count as extra votes, even if made from the same device.

Thank you so much in advance,

Sammy and the Staff Team
