I know, it's been two months! I would apologize for the long hiatus, but overtime at work isn't exactly an option
- however I will say I appreciate everyone who understands my free time is limited.
I wrote a quick ajax-based voting system. you can find it here: http://javaunlimited.net/vote/
anyone from JGO that's been a member since
before the year 2007
before April 21, 2007 will be able to take part in the vote.
all you need to do is select your top 5 favorite games. "favorite" meaning the games you think deserve to win the most.
bear in mind that your #1 pick will weigh more than your #5 pick when it comes to the poll results! so make sure your top 5 picks are in order of your preference
I really encourage you all to try *all* the games before placing your vote. to help you with this, the voting system places a checkmark by each game you launch. it also lets you view a list of games you haven't played yet. you don't *need* to have a check on all games to vote, but it is encouraged
another handy tip: you don't have to do it in one sitting. the voting system will remember which games you have checked and your current top 5 list. it stores this information on the server, so you don't have to worry about logging back in on the same computer.
logging out is simple: if you need to take a break from voting, just close the page whenever you want. everything will be remembered when you log back in.
and finally: don't forget you can change your top 5 before you vote! you can add, remove, and re-arrange entries on your top 5 list.
thanks to everyone who has been contributing to the inofficial feedback. it's nice to see the community is still involved in the contest but wait - are you recording my password?!
- I know there's probably SOMEONE who is thinking this. the answer is no. in fact, that is why logging into the voting system takes so long every time, because it has to open two sockets to JGO to login. either you trust me or you don't - but you have to wonder, what would I possibly want with your JGO password? the best I can do is show you the code
that is used to log you in.
