No, it's not too time consuming, just hard to tell how many are left, and maybe need a few awards.

I haven't had any problems at all with voting, other than the one that only allowed about 3 seconds to enter the captcha . All the people complaining about the time involved? Well the first day it took about 5 minutes but now as you have tweaked it and I have figured out what i am doing it takes about a minute total. and all those complaining about the guaranteed rewards for voting? I still received my one point from apex this past sunday. and would you not more prefer Torn City continue to grow and prosper so it can continue to be here for you to play or the alternative of a "guaranteed" reward and it folds because there are not enough new players donating money to keep it afloat? I bet at least some of you doing the complaining are the same ones that think stock benefits etc.. should be "guaranteed". This is Torn- it mimics real life- nothing is "guaranteed". Random comes to mind.

15 links took me 6 minutes at a connection speed of 100.00Mbps. That was supposed to be 150 seconds, 2.5 minutes, right?

i think everyone should just get something because the point a week is what helps alot of the low levels and if you dont log in one day for what ever reason you lose out on everything

I try to always vote at them all, why wouldnt you?

I mean 5 merits?!?!? thats plenty incentive to get me to vote.... not to mention 10,000 points!?!?!?!? It makes me drool already!

This is a great way to attract new players to the game, so i advise everyone to vote to the max every day!

Good Luck in the 10,000 pts. drawing everyone!

Hmmm... not that anyone actually pays attention to threads like this, but I'll add my two cents.

It's nice that we finally have a way to gain that elusive Voted merit, and it's also nice that it comes as an award too. Not complaining about that at all. It's always nice to get something for the effort put in, and since it's a relatively small effort for those merits, I give that part two- thumbs- up.

But this contest thing? Come on. Not all of us can be on this little time- waster every day. I'm in the military, for example, and I'm on the road for days and weeks at a time, with no access to this game. There are people who have limited time on their computer for financial or parental reasons, and taking 5-10 minutes (sorry, not 60 seconds... only in a perfect world with a dedicated T1 line are you going to manage that feat) to essentially get entered into a CHANCE to get a reward is the equivilent of your boss buying you lottery tickets for your Christmas bonus. It's cheap, it's going to put a lot of people off, and chances are this game is going to find itself with fewer votes in the long run rather than more as people started getting bored with spending all this time clicking for nothing.

Let's face some reality here. For years, we've been getting a free point every week for clicking a link and tapping a few buttons. There are tons of faction out there that require a point per week as dues to be in their faction, and people depended on that point... especially newbies and people who don't know how to make money in this game.

Suddenly, that point (which costs this game absolutely nothing) is yanked away, and we're told "Hey, do the same thing you've always done, but do it fifteen more times per day, and MAYBE we'll toss you a bone someday. Maybe. That's a really freakin' huge IF, but maybe."

So... to answer the OP's original question... yes, it's too much damn effort. For the time it takes to go through all the effort to vote every single day on every single website, I need more than a 1 in a million chance that my efforts will be rewarded. Honestly, I'll vote until I get the merits and awards for voting, and then I'll never vote again. Why on earth would I? I can BUY 10,000 points if I need that many. Hell, I keep about that many on- hand for energy refills and donator packs and such.

I won't negatively rate the thread, since it won't do any good anyway. But I give a thumbs- down to this contest. Fair recompense for effort given!



By the way, off-topic... I thought this ' error was fixed? I and my entire faction still have this error.

If you keep up with your votes each day, you'll on average only have to vote 6 times a day. This equates to less than 60 seconds a day with a standard internet connection if they all have captcha (which they don't).



Remember that it used to be 10 seconds, with a guaranteed reward?



This. But i'd rather have it like this than a point r so for every vote. I've played games like that before, and they end up being based around voting, and they SUCK. I'd quit if tc ever went to that.


Wishing you all the best.Also, my stats are: Speed: 23,784.6883, Strength: 32,808.0762, Defense: 1,168.0987 and Dexterity: 807.3815.

Simply put... who ever coded this did a terrible job.

- It only recognizes the votes 2/3s of time, maybe even less. So I find myself returning multiple times in order to have it register that I navigated to the page

- The redirection implementation is amateur at best, takes far too long to load, and doesn't even register the majority of the time.

Horrible change. I won't be voting anymore.

I love when people are whining when they loose 1 points a week.

Is it better to sacriface 6mins ,bring in new players and help the game get bigger?

but...
i still think it there should be 3 prizes.

1.10,000p
2.8,000p
3.5,,000p

Why? becouse in the old system we got 1p/week , so economy saves about 25,000 points a week now.

Seeing as the number in Torn is rising all the time the chances of 'winning' when voting are slim. I vote to keep the game not win something.
Keep it up, things are getting from great to betterer all the time
