tbh it doesn't take up any time at all.


That's you. I refuse to vote until he meets my demands.

this entire situation is him asking us to help torn, which I am more than in favor of. But until he starts helping new players stay players, then there is no incentive for me.

He has my conditions for voting, and they are not up for negotiation. Do it, r lose my many many votes because that will tell me he isn't interested in getting new players, which is what all this voting is about.

I wish more people were like me. I understand and applaud the reasons, but the implementation is less than pathetic. New players sign up and find out they are despised automatically for being new players.

Until ched changes that, I won't vote. Not worth my time.

I for one have voted on every site everyday to try bring new players to the game... The more players we have the more it benefits us players....

You ask how simple by collectibles all these new players dont have easter eggs etc they will want them eventually so when they do buy them the price will increase then we benefit from it... Stocks for TCHS will be in great demand... Do I need to continue how this benefits us all in more ways then just merits.....

Chuckle.

Well...That would depend upon whether you have net access thru wifi r broadband carrier.

Geez, you players are crying like kids.

Perform your Torn actions.

Then add another action by voting for Torn.

Remember this - > Torn is a social site.

Torn needs new members......

to feed your Torn addiction.

Enjoy yourself because you can't change anything anyway

Ched, giving 1 point to every 10 vote will encourage more people to vote compare to give 10k point to one person.


That sounds like a fairly reasonable suggestion


Exactly..... giving me a small reward is better than offering me a huge reward i wont win. I was happy with the 1 point a week and 15 casino tokens a day

The voting system is way to time consuming. I voted twice and it took me nearly 16 minutes each time. Why does it have to be so difficult? I think we should stick with voting for all the sites maybe once per week. When I have to spend 15 plus minutes just voting not even playing the game it begins to feel more like a job and ultimately makes me not vote at all. Thanks for reading this.

the new voting system has its good and bad points.
the good is that quite a few new player will be attracted to torn as it is in the top ten rpgs in these voting sites. as well as merits and the points drawing.

the bad is that the 1 point weekly has now been removed which has been said a few time in this thread, some people still want 1 point for every time they vote. that seems a bit much as everybody would be making an average of 6 point daily and inflation in torn is bad enough, i think 1 point every 30 to 40 times would be better as this end up about 1 per week.

By voting on these sites, you will be entered in to a weekly 10,000 points draw!


How many time do we have to vote to be in the draw for 10,000 points?

If I vote on 1 site 1 time am I in the draw for that week?

Do I have to vote on all sites 1 time to be in the draw for that week?

Do I have to vote on all sites every day for a week to be in the draw for that week?

What if I miss 1 site 1 time? Am I still in the draw for the week?

What if I miss voting for 1 day? Am I out for the week?

Im a real TC fan, and im just sad that the best MMORPG on the web have survived for so many years without having to impose that kind of voting stuff to their players
(if you vote youll maybe have 1 chance on 10000000 to get something out of it, and if you dont you dont encourages us...)

(I know the crew want to give us lots of goodie but at what price...)

Its the end of an era....

TC will the best for a lot of good years to come I hope...
But there was already a lot of stuff to do out there without the voting thing!

I'll start voting again after chat and a few other things are fixed.....we do NOT need more players until the site is fixed. We get 1 chance to make a good impression...if we do not make a good impression all we are doing is attracting some low level punching bags when newbies jin and then leave because of bugs etc.

I also want more information about exactly how many votes required for a merit. How many to be entered into the drawing? etc. etc.

I only voted at apex to get the point and didn't bother with the casino points. Not sure I want to vote for the site before it is fixed no matter what the reward is.

If it's worth doing, it's worth doing right. There's always time to do it right because there is never time to do it over.

You know, Im still pretty new around here but, i remember we would vote once, and get 1 point. It only makes sense that we get 1 point per vote per day. Just saying, if you want to keep it on the same rule system thats what it should be. with the current system its either a home run or a strike out. I dont mind voting, but i think i should get at least 1 point per vote, with a chance to win it big. Kinda like those lotto tickets that guarantee at least a dollar

I liked the old voting.This new has just way too much to vote on and I don't get guaranteed point, so why even bother with the voting? merits, nah. 5 merits isn't enough to make me vote. Also that lucky draw for 10,000 point isn't interesting. 1 person will get it and I'm sure it won't be me. I want my guaranteed point! 1 point a week isn't enough anymore aswell. Since you added so many pages to vote on!!! 1 point for every 10 sounds fair, like someone suggested.

I don't think it's too time consuming, as it only takes me 2-3 mins tops if there's a bunch to vote on... but I agree with everyone saying that it's not right to ask for a whole lot more voting, while taking away the small reward people got for their votes before..
The raffle's a bad idea imho.

Edit: I changed my mind. lol
The eventual merits are worth far more than the daily points, and they reward people who stick around for the long haul too...

I think this should be setup like other awards of the game where you get a display on your page (whether that happens we don't know yet) and there should be more incentive... guess we will see how many votes it takes for a merit, if it takes more than 500 votes... that's bullshit.

*IMO* you should get a merit every 250 r 500 votes, just like many other aspects of the game, crimes, marriage, faction loyalty and so on.

I timed exactly how long it took me to vote on everything i hadn't voted on today...

It took 4 mins 26 seconds (lets round that to 4.30) = 4.5 mins on a calculator

In 1 year that = 1642.5 mins which is the same as Almost 27 and a half hours wasted voting.
