Help plz win some Mashable Web Awards...

Postby Kroze » 11 Dec 2009, 17:20

Hey guys, its your lovable human Banhammer who never sleeps Kroze here...
I have come here with a mission for all of you LRR fans.
As many of you may be aware of right now, the 3rd Annual Mashables Web Awards Contest is happening and there is about 2 days left.
Both Loading Ready Run and the series I work on, Yu-Gi-Oh: The Abridged Series are currently up in the running for Funniest Youtube Channel.
For the past couple weeks, YGO:TAS has been going almost head to head with another one of the nominees in the votes, raywilliamjohnson.

He, having waaaaaayyy more fans and followers and is also a youtube partner, has a LOT more pull then anything we could hope to pull off, but seeing as how we are kinda the underdog in this situation (And still behind by several thousands of votes) we at least wanna give him a run for his money.

Currently LRR is kinda out of the running and doesn't have much of a chance to catch up in the Funniest Youtube Channel category, but I think we may have a chance to all win here...
If we combine all of our powers and just vote for CardGamesFTW, we may have a small shot at claiming this thing together as fanbases in arms.

I know most of you here are fans of both LRR and YGO:TAS so I think as of right now, no matter which of us wins, one of us two NEEDS to give em hell!

So I ask all of you faithful and awesome Runners if we can all converge on the 3rd Annual Mashables Web Awards for Funniest Youtube video and help vote up CardGamesFTW for the next two days to see if we can't have somewhat a shot at this!

In return, I am asking all the YGO:TAS fans to vote up Secret of the Sauce for Funniest Youtube Video.

ARE YOU WITH ME?!?!?!?!

The voting resets every 24 hours so every 24 hours you can vote again...
Even if you have voted before you can vote again... and then vote one more time seeing as how there are 2 days left...

Sadly right now LRR doesn't really have a chance between the battle between raywilliamjohnson and YGO:TAS...
Hell, YGO:TAS barely is standing its ground.
Hence the asking for help here, so that at least one of us can come out of this victorious.

Sadly, Jim, they don't seem to be weighing our votes correctly, as our correct votes for LRR aren't weighed +1,000,000 compared to everyone else's incorrect votes.

Sad world.

I just noticed the seasonal alteration to your avatar. I don't know what it is supposed to be besides a handful of movie film but it made me laugh anyway.

So, you'll vote for who you think could win over who you want to win?

Oh, you are gonna LOVE this Matt...
I have my spare computer refreshing the mashables page of Funniest Youtube Channel every minute and then it auto screen caps it for me...

I've been going through all the screencaps manually figuring out a rough estimate of who is where in the runnings...

Its a bitch, trust me.
But in this case, well worth it!

I looked at the Mashable votes page. Not a LRR vote on there. Also, Matt has an Alja avatar?

I personally think this thread is in bad taste. It's asking people not to vote for Loading Ready Run & it's posted on LOADING READY RUN.

Just had a thought, wouldn't it be like 100x easier to make a spider for Twitter and Facebook to search for openwebawards in topics and return the ones that say "Funniest YouTube Channel" and sort them? It could also count them for you.

But remember: LoadingReadyRun - Change we can believe in.

I already voted for who I want to win. Apparently I can vote more.

Democracy is confusing.

So what do the winners win anyway? I haven't found anything about prizes on the Mashable website yet.

What I am saying is we can at least have someone who is somewhat associated with LRR very loosely win instead of letting some of these corporate funded series who are youtube partners and already are making a business off of this shit win...

Not to mention the guy who we are going toe to toe with here is kinda a douche.
If you would like more of an explanation on that, hit me up in a PM and I'll explain.

Well the problem with the facebook part of that is not everyone has their profiles for anyone to see...
A lot of people keep them private thus even if I did do that, it would not be catching a LOT of votes...

Yeah, I did think of doing that earlier before setting up my current method of calculating votes since that would be soooo much easier.

that's it guys, i'm sorry, but i'm sticking to making pictures and voting for my first instincts on internet quality polls, once, most likely. I'm out of the game. Peace.


For the record, this is not the only place where I've been having to deal with this, I've also been getting a lot of it from friends in comedy troupes IRL. My head is spinning.
