All votes for TarJak and are null and void. TarJak attempted to create a secondary forum profile and voted for...... Tarjak. I'm very angry about this and as such TarJak faces severe disciplinary action. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

Shame on you TarJak - Why bother? It's not as if there is a cash prize or something. Your IP address will be logged and monitored. Do you not think Forum Moderators can check these things?

All votes for Tarjak will be edited out of the voting thread regardless of who posted them.

To Jochen Mohr... Shut it you.

To all others, Tarjak's action was taken independantly. I found out about it at the same time you guys did. Nothing of the sort is condoned by us.

Not cool. Now he is peeling potatoes. Nuff said. He meant it in good humor, but skipped second gear.

As far as the wolfpack voting for one of its own? That is no crime.

In good humour? I'd hardly call creating another profile in order to vote for himself 'good humour' - I'd call that blatant cheating and extremley disrepectful to every other forum member. Cheats never prosper.

That said, I wish to put a stop to all of this right now. I'm keen for all of us to move on. TarJak, in any form, will not grace this forum again.

Mischief? Yes. The end of the world? No.

Not any worse than the wholesale deletion of other member's posts who otherwise made legitamate posts/votes.

That was excessive and accusatory by its very nature... throwing a number of people into the same basket secondary to your speculation.

Moderation would be something quite different.

Realjambo
09-21-2007, 05:38 PM
Agreed, not the end of the world J5_Lehmann but a cheat is a cheat - TarJak duplictated his profile and voted for himself - Any votes for that person is deemed null and void, so the vote posts are deleted for them irrespective of who posted them.

Votes for TarJak are discounted - Accusatory in it's nature? I don't agree - It's just a fall out of someone blatantly cheating in a competition.

As for speculation - There is none whatsoever. Case closed.

Allow to me clarify - A forum member made a secondary profile, and voted for himself (something the Moderators can check on) and therefore the screenshot entries and the consequent votes for them are null and void - for the simple reason that that forum member - TarJak in this case - attempted to cheat.

Therefore - any votes for TarJak are null and void!

How you can claim that such a nebulous post is anywhere near 'succinct' is unreasonable.

If I can interpret the above statements in the way that I have, so can any number of readers.

Your post is disrespectful and its implications obvious. Let me remind you that you also posted in the PLURAL when referring to 'friends from Subsim.'

You are supposed to vote for your favourite pictures, not your favourite entrant. You appear to have abused this competition for your own motives, which is disgraceful.

You, danlisa, jimbuna, poor_sailor, joeap, madmunson, Panzer_Kamerad, Penelope_Grey and bigboywooly (did I miss anyone out?) all cast exactly the same votes for Tarjak... Multiple, identical votes in a short space of time for a member of your "wolfpack" who used multiple forum accounts to cheat. It was therefore reasonable for RJ to act on such unprecedented, suspicious voting activity.

@ Lehmann & Kappin_Stabum: your antagonistic behaviour towards RJ isn't justified. You've been warned before about writing inflammatory posts in these forums. Your accounts are now suspended.

@ everyone else: you are welcome to re-vote for legitimate competition entries, but any further public discussion of this matter will result in a one week ban, or longer if necessary.

Furthermore, all should understand this: .....The "Damning Offense" here is NOT the voicing of a difference of opinion! .....It is the disrespectful treatment of others!

Open disrespect for ANYONE on this forum will not be tolerated!

If you are not mature enough to disagree in a civilized fashion, then we would prefer that you "go play somewhere else"! (....And as a Moderator, I'll help you with the "directions"!)

Your Tarjak votes were the same as Penelope_Grey's, one of which the others voted for too.

danlisa, jimbuna, poor_sailor, joeap, Panzer_Kamerad and J5_Lehmannn each posted exactly the same Tarjak votes.

So by "quite a few", you mean just two "wolf pack" members' votes were partially different to those of the other six who voted (i.e. only two out of a total of sixteen 1st and 2nd place votes were for a different screenshot). That small detail makes no difference.



Originally posted by bigboywooly:

As J5_Lehmannn said on your behalf, the "wolf pack" was "voting for one of its own" - and each of your votes reinforced that aim. That's not how the competition works, as I've already pointed out.


Originally posted by bigboywooly:

That's irrelevant. I could say that I've made 150 more posts than Joeap, but that's equally irrelevant to this matter and his involvement.

I must point out that joeap had the decency and common sense to raise his concerns to me privately, and in a civil manner. I've clarified the situation to him, which he has acknowledged.


Originally posted by bigboywooly:

It's next month, same as always.

Unfortunately, you won't be able to.

In trying to justify the conduct of the "wolf pack", you've only made things worse! You were warned not to continue discussing this matter in public. Your account is suspended.

Well, I have participated in maybe 80-90% of the SH3 competitions, since it started, and this is the first time, I submitted entries, which happened to hit the taste of a majority!

I know this sounds selfish, but I do think I have had some real good shots this month, but I had to vote for somebody else, and I like to split the votes for 2 persons, so I had to vote for second and third best IMO. And I liked the action in your shot, where the attacker is invisible in the frame. But AlantikEels was still a little better than yours. I liked his title too, made me think of Rambo http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Anyway, keep making shots and compete!

Hey everybody, I would like to say a big thank you to all who voted for my screenshots! I was very happy to submit these, because I finally had 4 pictures which I liked. In the past it was max 3 out of the 4 which I liked. And it seems I hit the jackpot with these 4 this time, so I was happy to see many votes for me.

However, I wasn't too fond of seeing "the presidental campaign voting thingy" in this contest, which gave me mixed feelings about the whole thing! Please let's not have this happen again another time, so I also thank the mods for stepping in on this issue!
