The Sanvers/Braime bracket seems to be frozen.
This happened on the M/K bracket last year, because of something fishy going on. Could just be a glitch, but all the other brackets are working, so . . .
That was caused by “illegal voting activity”, I seem to recall. There is always someone who wants to win a little too much.
Zimbio was like that this year. They just stopped monitoring the poll over there.
The sanvers bracket is frozen.
I thought it was just me. It unfreezes occasionally and then freezes again.
I dont think there isn’t ilegal voting going on with the Sanvers/Braime braket. For what I’ve seen, the page allows you to vote 25 times in a row and then it pauses for you for a couplenof minutes and then it allows you to vote another 25 times in a row and pauses agian. I think its just a way to control clicks. The way the poll is designed, there is no reason for illegal actions since you can basically vote as much as you can.
Except both sides of the bracket froze, and no one could vote until now.
That usually means a bot. It did last year.
It happened in the M/K vs Marrish bracket last year, when M/K “suddenly” caught up with Marrish.
The bracket froze and a new one had to be opened.
There is nothing illegal, just to many people voting at the same time.
People or something else?
Am I the only one who thinks Marrish is trying to make a point here?
They really mean business. They are well ahead but are continuing to vote anyway.
The next round looks like being a real slugfest between some ships.
The sanvers/braime bracket isn’t working properly. Braime I keeps freezing, while sanvers can still vote.
Thank you everyone for your enthusiasm. I have kept an eye on the polling and have not seen the polls freeze on our end. If you experience problems with freezing after multiple votes (more than 25), it is possible the system locked you out automatically and there is nothing we can do about that.
this is what we tried to explain a few times, thank you!
But I had only started voting when the bracket froze and had only voted 3 or 4 times (don’t know how it is for others).
It was working again, but is frozen now (even after cleared cookies, tried another browser, and a different computer).
Also, the marriah/stydia bracket has now frozen. All the other brackets seem to be working though.
The marrish bracket is working again.
The sanvers/braime bracket is working again too.
Is it only the mulder/krycek bracket frozen?
It's frozen here too and I’d only just voted about ten times. But johnlock still voting okay??
I’ll try again in a few minutes.
Yep, still locked out. I don’t think I over voted. Apparently this has happened on several brackets.
Hope it unfreezes before we lose our lead.
* looks at stydia vs marrish bracket *
Marrish: MEET BOOT
have some mercy, Marrish.
But . . . it's dead, Jim.
Oh come on! We had been voting for hours, while the sanvers shippers were sleeping and were within 1500 votes.
And now we are frozen again, just as the sanvers count starts climbing again. I had waited several minutes between voting, so should be able to vote but nothing.
Why does this keep happening in our bracket?
just when I thought we had a slight chance of catching up.
I’ll keep checking but losing hope.
still don’t know why this kept happening on this bracket.
Take a look at the other comments, it is happening in all the bracket, but not to everyone.
Just like yesterday i can vote for Braime and Sanvers without problem.
As far as I can tell (by the comments). the marrish bracket only had a tiny glitch. The mulder/krycek bracket was frozen for a short period but is okay now.
It seems that the sanvers/braime bracket had the most problems.
Why so many brackets freezing? Even when don’t vote more than 25 times, and wait between voting batches.
Is someone using macros or bots?
Wow, Hadn’t thought of that. Hope it’s just a glitch but it’s frustrating. Because we were winning and now looks like we’ll lose because of this.
ITS WORKING AGAIN!!
Just to clarify to people, as I created a test poll to make sure I understood the issue, once you vote 25 times once and then take a break the system does appear to keep that in mind. So even if you pause between batches of 25 but continue to vote the system could decide to lock you out at some point. It doesn’t mean the entire poll has shut down for illegal activity. If that does happen, I will notify everyone immediately.
Is there a reason why it block some people but not others?
Also thank you very much to clarify :)
Whew, what a round! Marrish and Sanvers certainly look like the ships to beat this year too. Over 5000 votes each!
I see Marvel still has three ships left (after starting with SEVEN! Just realised that all the previous winners/finalists have been eliminated, except for last years finalist, Stucky.
And the next round looks interesting.
The two Ladybug & Cat Noir ships are going head to head. Clex is taking on Sterek. Marrish and Reylo will fight it out (hoo boy). Merthur is facing Stucky. And Clintasha is fighting Sanvers (I'sd back Clintasha, as the new Avengers movie is about to come out).
Wow. We'd all better rest up for the Sweet Sixteen round.
