30beats lays down the law…

The 30beats competition adjudicators have noticed a number of irregular voting patterns which suggest that some voters may be using spambots and phantom email addresses to increase entrant rankings within the 30beats league table.

Please note that any attempts to fix the result using underhand tactics such as the mentioned, is a direct violation of the competition’s rules and persistent offenders will be banned from the 30beats community.

Any votes we deem to be false, particularly ones which have been posted from the same IP address within an extremely short timeframe, will be deleted from the overall tally.

If you’re aware of any personal friends who may be doing this, please request that they halt this activity immediately as continuation may result in their favourite entry being disqualified.

The lengths we’ll go for fairness…

I got my friends to sign up and let me know their username so I could vote on their behalves – saving them the hassle. Surely thats ok right??

Maybe you should have got a judge. Then the result would have less to do with popularity, and more to do with music.

I don’t agree Anita, then the result would have been the opinion of one person. Art and Music is so subjective why should one person decide for us all? Let the masses decide but let the cheating masses be found out and their votes discounted, well done 30beats for trying to keep things fair!!!

Well said Dave! Kudos to 30 Beats for ‘laying down the law’

Hang on Dave – if popularity = good, then that means every number one song is brilliant. Hmmmm. Oh well. Good news for Mr Blobby and Black Lace then.

Perhaps look in to the speed and regularity of the votes that Nikky French is getting in the last few hours..
