    • Hi Nichole! The voting script is automated to check multiple votes for the same IP address. When it finds the multiple votes, it bans the IP from voting again and removes ALL the votes that IP has made.

      • I understand what you’re saying — but your code does not account for VPN’s or multiple anonymous voters from the same IP address. I’d be willing to bet you have many people using a VPN, which assigns a random IP, often duplicates for people in the same area.

        Considering how many authors lost votes, some of them losing quite a significant amount, I encourage you to consider writing script in the future that allows for updated anonymous security settings. This just doesn’t seem like a voter fraud issue at all, which isn’t fair to all involved.

      • That’s an extreme amount of votes disappearing. I find it hard to believe that either of those authors would have that many incorrect votes. I believe Tal won last year for good reason. (With the exception of Sandrine ??) Waiting until the last day of voting to yank that many votes feels shady to me.

        • As I said, you might want to check your “script” before the next contest. 25% of one author’s votes being disqualified seems more like a technology glitch than actual voter fraud.

    • They had cut this list down to the top 20 from the previous survey. So if ur fave author isn’t on here anymore, they didn’t make it into the top 20. 🙁

  • What happened to MA Innes/Shaw Montgomery’s votes? Last time I checked it at 7:30pm she was around 200 votes! Now is listed in the 40’s. What is going on with this? How did she lose 150 votes!??!!

  • I would seriously like to know how to get Author Ann Lister on the list. She is the Author of The Rock Gods Series, Guarding The Gods Series, and the newest is her Illicit Heat Series. There are 4 or 5 important authors missing, but I wanted to at least get Ann Lister on. Thank You.
