View Full Version : How many times did you vote?

07-07-2005, 12:48 AM
I dont know if the clubhouse is the right place for this but how many times did you vote for Pods to get in the all star game. I think it would be cool to get a tally of all the votes from WSI and we could market that as one of our accomplishments

I voted about 1000 times

07-07-2005, 12:49 AM
Due to time contstraints....only about 45 times

07-07-2005, 12:53 AM
Due to time contstraints....only about 45 times

Lets get an estimated number of times from everyone

07-07-2005, 12:55 AM
I didn't count, but it couldn't have been too much. My dial up connection is so slow. I'm guessing 25-30. At least I contributed even if it wasn't much.

07-07-2005, 01:00 AM
About 350 times

07-07-2005, 01:00 AM
I think like 5 times. Sorry, I got frustrated. At least I voted though, and he got all 25 from me for the original All-Star ballot I believe.

07-07-2005, 01:01 AM
I voted in 4 huge blocks of time. I'd say total around 800-1000. To save time I didn't vote for NL

07-07-2005, 01:09 AM
I would say I voted at least 500 times, probably closer to 700.

07-07-2005, 01:15 AM
Four, I believe. I helped!:smile:

07-07-2005, 01:18 AM
I voted a couple hundred, I didn't do the NL either after a while.

07-07-2005, 01:31 AM
250+ times

Plus I got my dad to vote 100+ times

Sox Army We Are Invincible:churrosarmy:

I'd say 7 hours (or so) of voting:
- 1 hour monday during the day
- 30 min during the 8th inning Monday night
- 15-20 min during the 6th inning Tuesday night
- 1 hour and 30 min Wednesday morning (1:30 - 3:00 AM)
- 10-20 min when I woke up Wednesday morning [afternoon]
- 4 hours (with short breaks at times) Wednesday evening (3:00 - 7:00 PM)
- AND a countless amount of odd votes while doing nothing

The voting at times was straight through and at other times i took short breaks. So I'd give myself maybe 7 votes per minute. So doing the math...

7 hours, 420 minutes, 7 votes/min...

2940 Votes - Might be high, might be low - probably is - but I don't like attention, and I'll never be sure. 7 votes may be too low of a number per minute, because I timed 10/min twice. But that would be making up for the phone calls and other things I was trying to get done during the 7 hours voting.

I'm crazy, but yea, what can ya do? He made the team right?

07-07-2005, 01:33 AM
At least 60 times

07-07-2005, 02:24 AM
Between 100 and 150.

07-07-2005, 02:28 AM
I literally lost count.

07-07-2005, 02:30 AM
I made sure to vote 50 times a day. But today i voted more. I'd say 225-250.

07-07-2005, 02:37 AM
I voted for about 2-3 hours over the last 2 days:D:

07-07-2005, 03:26 AM
I literally lost count.

I did too. I didnt even attempt to count. I multi-tasked so much (voting while talking on the phone, voting while watching tv, voting while in deep thought) that I have absolutely no idea how many votes I casted.

But probably between 800 and 1000.

07-07-2005, 04:33 AM
thanks to mozilla, I got an estimate:
1000-1500 thereabouts.

07-07-2005, 06:18 AM
My wife, a friend and myself voted about 500 times combind.

07-07-2005, 06:22 AM
Somewhere between 125-150 votes.

The Racehorse
07-07-2005, 06:27 AM
Probably around 750... I stopped counting at 300.

07-07-2005, 07:11 AM
I lost count, but I put in a few 2-3 shifts of non-stop voting plus intermittent smaller streaks............I estimate a few thousand votes overall.

Go Sox !!

07-07-2005, 07:27 AM
I must have voted for him about 500 times

07-07-2005, 07:36 AM
I think I was somewhere around 100.

07-07-2005, 07:44 AM
I only voted probably 100+ times Tuesday.

07-07-2005, 08:14 AM
It's hard to say what I did over the 3 days, but I probably racked in about a 1000 votes. I would sit down for 100 vote intervals and probably had about 4 of those just yesterday at work. Glad it paid off!!!

07-07-2005, 08:16 AM
About 200 or so.

07-07-2005, 08:26 AM
Between 500 and 750.

Rocky Soprano
07-07-2005, 08:53 AM
Between 200 and 300 times.

07-07-2005, 08:59 AM
750 or so is my guess. i spent an entire lunch break eating between votes. plus i brought a laptop from work into the can and voted while i pooped (WI-Fi is pretty sweet). GO PODS!!

07-07-2005, 09:08 AM
Only 100-150.

Sorry. Thanks to all who picked up the slack.

I'm glad so many of you guys have so much free time on your hands....:D:

45 votes in 2 rounds--just doin' my part to hailp.

07-07-2005, 09:54 AM
I think I voted around 50 times for Scotty. I know it's not much, and I thank all of you who voted hundreds or even thousands of times. This is as much a victory for the White Sox Army as it is for Scotty. I can't believe we have four all stars!

07-07-2005, 10:02 AM
I voted about 500 times

07-07-2005, 10:03 AM
About 75 each day. So 200 or so

4 times is all I had time for:(:

07-07-2005, 10:12 AM
I voted about a 100 times.


07-07-2005, 10:12 AM
50 times.My eyes still are seeing validation codes.:rolleyes: :rolleyes:

07-07-2005, 10:24 AM
This is like guessing how many jelly beans are in the jar. Maybe 422?

I'd like to thank my wife and my boss for not catching on to what I was doing all that time on the computer.

07-07-2005, 10:59 AM
Work's been a little slow lately, so I spent an awful lot of the past two days voting. I'm going to say 2000, but I think that's a low estimate. Hmm, maybe I should do some actual work now...

I'd estimate my total votes cast for Speedy was about 750-850. Either way, we all pitched in to get the job done.

07-07-2005, 02:50 PM
I lost count somewhere between 200 and 400.

07-07-2005, 03:06 PM
I'd say somewhere in the 200-250 range. I lost count after a while, but spent most of Tueday night voting while I watched the game -- plus a few extra at work yesterday just to be on the safe side.

07-07-2005, 03:27 PM
this thread reminds me of the scene in the original willy wonka movie. The teacher goes around the room asking the kids how many Wonka bars they bought, and Charlie mentions he only bought 1 bar only to be ridiculed and scorned by the other students.

i voted 50 times

07-07-2005, 03:34 PM
I voted somewhere between 130-150 times. Honestly it's tough to count. I had to get myself into a mindset where I wouldn't think about it too much. However, in doing so I forgot to uncheck the box that says mlb.com can send me their useful commercials.

Oh well, it got Scotty in, and all I have to do is hit delete on future mlb.com spam.

Don't just hit deleter. Scroll down to the bottom of the first email and click on the unsubscribe link. They'll unsubscribe you immediately and not bother you anymore. If you don't unsubscribe you'll get lots of MLB email.

Thanks, but I've clicked on the unsubscribe link several times and still get emails from MLB anyway.

I don't know the exact count, but I voted for about 5 hours.

07-07-2005, 04:05 PM
About 20-25x for me.

07-07-2005, 06:10 PM

07-07-2005, 07:08 PM
About 1200 i think, including 4-7 pm on wednesday coming down the home stretch

07-07-2005, 07:11 PM
Couple of hundred.

07-07-2005, 07:18 PM
only 25...stupid dial-up.:angry:

I voted 7 times and thought that was a lot until I read this thread. :rolleyes:
Hey, lucky 7 I guess.

07-07-2005, 10:13 PM
I don't know how many times total. I voted for a while Sunday night. I voted for a while Monday. I voted a little on Tuesday morning. After hearing that Pods was down 1000, I decided I was going to vote 1000 times Tuesday night. I ended up throwing in an extra 100, meaning I had 1100 votes just on Tuesday night. Yes, I actually counted 1100 votes. That was the only time I actually bothered to count because I wanted to make sure I added at least 1000. Add in Sunday night, Monday, Tuesday morning and Wednesday and the total is.....way too high for me to count. It was worth it though. :smile:

07-08-2005, 01:25 AM
I didn't keep track but I started voting at @ 9pm pacific time, and finished at about 7am.

a lot of clicking and typing in numbers, but I feel it was worth it.

WhiteSox = Life
07-08-2005, 02:32 AM
WhiteSox16k had a very impressive amount, but this always was a gestalt mission.

Even before I "joined" the Sox Army (I was rogue for a while, I'd say), I had about 1500. I totaled 2917.

And nice allusion to Willy Wonka, mrfourni.

07-08-2005, 05:29 AM
i voted for him once, but then again i am one lazy SOB. :redneck:o:

07-08-2005, 09:03 AM
about 600 times. My brother voted for him about 500 times so about 1100 altogether from the two of us.:cool:

07-08-2005, 01:47 PM
Conservatively.....about 4000. Family, friends, co-workers...simply amazing!

I made a deal with some of my Astro fan friends where we helped them with Oswalt and they help us with Pods. Then, called my buddies in Boston and they were thrilled to help get Pods in there! The power of networking!!!!

I can just see it now. Manny doubles to the gap in the 3rd inning....Pods comes in and on the first pitch, steals 3rd on a pitch out.

I must be dreaming! :D:

07-08-2005, 01:57 PM
I honestly cannot remember too well. It wasn't an incredible total, though. Maybe between 75-100 votes. Thanks for picking up the slack, guys.

07-08-2005, 02:24 PM
Myself, about 800-1000...I too still see validation codes...it's tough to count and vote sometimes without getting messed up.

Cheers to all those who voted whether 1 or 1000...he got in, and the Sox Army's mission was accomplished.


07-08-2005, 02:41 PM
I voted 2000 times.

07-08-2005, 02:44 PM
at least 1250 times.
