You may have noticed the totals in the Saffron Song poll have come down. I had to moderate things a bit.
Which is another problem, since someone could vote, delete their cookies, and vote again, repeat as desired. Or the poll might not care if your computer doesn’t save cookies, I dunno. Either way, some multi-voting seems to have been happening with the Saffron votes.
Thing is, I don’t know that for sure. Could have been accidental, could have been someone’s entire workplace showing their support. I don’t know, and have no way of telling. So what I’ve decided to do — knowing that anything I decided would probably be unfair to somebody — was to go through the poll responses, find the ones with duplicate IP addresses, and trim back those votes if they were over a certain number.
There’s no way this can be anything approaching a “scientific” poll anyway, but hopefully this will keep the results closer to actual individual votes. Please, if you’ve already voted, don’t try voting again. This is for fun, folks, I’d like to keep it that way. Also, I have to go through it and remove entries one by one and it’s a pain…
Feel free to comment on this decision, I’d like to know what you think.
