That sucks. I had an assembly line of AOL and Facebook on the ready to start spamming votes. Each account took me about five minutes to make.

Edit: Ah shucks, they deleted all my votes. I'm quitting now.

It wont let me log in with Facebook or Twitter.
The right side of the login panel is blank.

Nevermind

Noscript blocks stuff and I just hit Allow all this page and that usually fixes it.
But I need to have the actual login panel open.
Hit it
But something new was blocking
hit it again

Pain in the ass.

But Woo we beat TicTacToe

Game over! They moderated it.
There have been concerns from other users about astro-turfing on the list - this means that users are coming on to simply vote for a single game. While there is nothing inherently wrong with this, it ends up devaluing the list because we get a handful of people that are using this as promotion or advertising, instead of authentically answering the request.

This wouldn't be a concern if we had 10,000 users, but unfortunately we don't have that luxury. All of the upvotes that this game has received are from users that only upvoted this game. You can repost the game or you can have your supporters go through the list and voice their opinion.

WTF there is fuckton of good games on that list.

If you have 100 members and 100 games they all get upvoted and nothing is accomplished.
As I suspected from the beginning its a foolish list.

Umm... the banhammer is pretty well beating everyone...

Including Sauron.

This reflects more on them than on us. It shows that their website is crappy and unpopular more than anything else.

Quick! Let's pick something equally ridiculous and vote everything else down so it wins!

Our target?

Or, you know, legitimately vote a few other games we actually enjoy...

Hell, the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Super Mario Brothers are on there, as well as Chess and DnD...
