Two posts with 80+ votes, while the number three is lacking in it's 20s. Funny thing; every evening after helping Rayne spread awareness of this contest in guild/friendlist. When she's finally in the lead again, the other contestant miraculously pulls more votes out of his hat. I hope he works as hard for it as Rayne, winning a fair battle in "popularity" (rather than a scary screenshot contest, sadly).
What does bug me though, is that people are complaining and writing hate, that mods had to remove(!), because of what a known popular person and long-time governor of Amakna can achieve in a popularity contest, while not a word is said about the other contestant with a rediculous ammount of votes. I don't mean anything personal to you Femto, but I don't know you; maybe you even play in Nox and are as popular there as Rayne is on Remington, but I do feel bad about the fact that my true governor is criminalized for working extensively, for both the nation and some popularity contests occasionally.
Just had to get that off my chest. Sorry for complaining.
First thing that I wanna say is that this contest and this voting system are not fair at all, for reasons already known. People with most active guild and most friends will have the most votes, or if you really wanna bother yourself you can also make a numerous fake accounts and vote for yourself as many times as you like.
Second is, you are accusing me, in a very polite manner so to speak, that I am cheating by "miraculously pulling more votes out of my hat" every time your friend gets close to me. Well, that is true, I do that, but I do not cheat my friend nor do I wanna win in that fashion. I do have a very active guild that has 130 members (not including alts outside of the guild) and a lot of good friends, that's how I got my "rediculous ammount of votes". And keep in mind that half of my guild didn't even vote yet because I don't wanna bother them. And you can think what you want really, but that's how it is.
And as for your friend...Well, I don't really know what to say on that. Maybe people don't like her that much as you think they do? Don't really know her and don't really care. And good luck mate.
Rayne is not breaking any rules. Sure, this might became a popularity contest but that's not against any rules as far as I know. Contests like these happen all the time and they always are popularity contests, the second Rayne decided to participate in one, people started hating? I could be wrong but it sounds like these people have a personal grudge against Rayne.
Actually, no. I couldn't be wrong. This is too obvious, it's a personal grudge against Rayne.
