|[Motd] "Donate" poll removed.||ANN.lu|
|Posted on 29-Feb-2000 19:36 GMT by Christian Kemp||11 comments|
I stopped the poll on how much (if anything) people would be willing to donate for an ad-free ANN because at least one individual used multiple IP addresses to artificially inflate the count. I'm not sure why somebody would do that... I had hoped to be able to gauge how much interest there really was so as to make an adequate decision on what kind of payments to accept, and what kind of income to expect. Since there is no guarantee that I'll be getting an accurate count this way, keeping the poll up wouldn't have been a good idea.

|Uh, I'm not a programmer, I did'nt even know you could do something like that.|
Would'nt it take some time to program something to automatically vote and if they did, they must value the poll enough to spend that time. So why then stuff the poll?
I just dunno.
