    Oh, don't worry, it'll drive some people nuts. ..Al

    I can fix this for the next run of boxes. Then there will be two versions!! ..Al

    The orientation of spines is something I've started paying attention to more recently to try and make them more consistent. But depending on the designer and if I'm not paying attention, one will slip through.. ..Al
  4. I'm on vacation right now, and today I am driving 12 hours, so I do not have a lot of time to investigate this at the moment (I'm at a stop charging my car right now). When I do have time, I can go through the slew of new accounts (quite a few from Brazil) and nuke any that I can definitively link to other accounts. I will probably remove any new accounts that were created with a VPN or proxy as well, as I've seen several of those. ..Al
  5. I've been running this forum for about 20 years now, and I've had to deal with people creating multiple accounts many times over that period of time. Usually this occurs after someone has been banned and they try to sign up for a new account to get around the ban. In the case of these polls for the 2019 Atari Awards, one individual from Brazil signed up for four accounts one right after another all using the same IP address. And that's not the only example. There are other ways for me to link accounts together as well. ..Al
  6. The rules don't explicitly state, "Don't create multiple accounts to vote in the polls", so I guess we should just allow it, then? It's sad that we'll have to take steps next year to try and prevent this from happening again. And Thomas doesn't have anything to do with "changing the rules". ZeroPage Homebrew and I are discussing how best to handle this situation. If you keep up with these unfounded accusations, I'm going to boot you from this thread. ..Al
  7. Yeah, that's not what's going on here, so stop peddling that garbage, please. Guess you're okay with people signing up with multiple accounts to shill vote for a single game? ..Al
  8. Yes, I will fix that when I get back from my vacation, it's a pretty simple thing to do. ..Al
  9. Unfortunately, there is obvious vote brigading for this game right now, so it's possible it may be disqualified. Most of these votes are coming from people registering solely to vote for the game. We've even had people creating multiple accounts to vote for this game. It's very unfortunate to see, as they did a great job with the packaging, but it's unfair to all of the other entries when something like this happens. We are still discussing how we want to handle the situation. ..Al
  10. The bug that kept revealing the poll results has been fixed. The results should stay hidden now until we close the poll. If you haven't voted yet, please do, as that is what was causing the results to become visible again. I'll close the poll in a few days, which will then make the results visible. Thanks! ..Al
  11. Yes, not to see if it reverts back to visible by itself again...
