Time is of the essence, so a new thread is in order.

Please give me a link for vote tallies.
I will likewise try to tailor a VB script that is slower than the one I am using that should be error free for you. The only change to the form will be the revealiing the verification key so that it can be copied & pasted by the script.

If I'm unable to get you up & running I'm going to try a parallel development script where maybe I can reach 100k votes.

But if 2mil is the goal, I'm never going to reach that. :(:

Unless you all give me access to your pc's! :)

Is there an admin I can attach both the VB script & the html page to in an e-mail so that they can discretely e-mail it to everyone else?

We don't want the enemy to get their hands on this.

I've given away too much as it is.
Scrub fans could be voting against Frank.

please send me the link for the vote tallies

TraderTim says he can dedicate 5 computers to voting Thomas if you explain how to run your program Jugs. Go back to the topic made by Bucktown.

We can use the private messaging to send out the code and email addresses. That way un wanted eyes can't see it.

Dad is the keeper of the code now.
Send all requests to him!

And make sure those SF fans are voting for Frank. Santiago's getting a LOT of votes from this.

I think he meant Dadawg. Click his user name in this thread and send him an e-mail/private message.

I have a couple machines that can run it, so make it 9, possibly 10. If you have a cable modem or whatever, let's USE them guys!!!!

Just run it overnight, and during the day while you're at work.

They took away the verification key variable in the html.

If you use the html I put together, it doesn't give a verfication key & it doesn't need one. When you vote, it thanks you for your vote.

I'm not sure if these will count though since they have no keys.

I remember someone saying the same thing happens on a mac. No key.
So that would suggest these votes will count.

Well you can give it a try.

What to do with the html I gave Dad:

Download it to your pc.

Inside your browser choose open file & open that html. When it's loaded fill in the e-mail field & zip code. The age is locked at 23. No need to bother with it. Then choose Frank & Santi & you're done.

No need for the key since it gives you the thank you note as confirmation your vote made it to the server. All of the field validation is on the client end.

What would really help is if someone could call the help number & ask them if their vote still counts when it doesn't ask for verif key. Just tell them you're on a mac & it's not giving the key.

If they say yes, then automation with the html is a snap.
There's no need to cut & paste so it amounts to nothing more than vote, back, vote, back, vote, back, etc.

The VB script can easily be adapted to that.
