    Well, they're not filtering by IP so I suspect someone has sat there for an hour and hammered F5. Not exactly a fair fight, but if they wanna play dirty:

    while($vote_count < 1,000,000)
    window.refresh();

    Probably not fair, but then I smell a rat as it is.

    its what usually happens when ip filtering isn't used...the dog that is in 1st place isn't that nice anyway...

    voted, best of luck with it!

    2000+ votes does seem a bit odd, especially as all the others are <200.

    The OPs dog is definitely more suited to Snowy than the one in first place.

    its ok for regulars to ask for this kind of thig, its when someone registers here just to ask for a vote, which has happened on numerous occasions (usually for there band) and it fun to vote against them, but this is Steven W and we should rise to his assistance

    Haha, that's what I thought, but hey this is DOG WARS!

    I'm using the Facebook network at the moment to help the cause, but I've only registered recently so haven't got that many friends on there, but they're spreading the word as well.

    Anyone else on Facebook or any social networks that may be able to help out? I've set up a group to create some interest...desperate measures (without resorting to out and out cheating).

    This is what happened with the Primary School "Any Dream Will Do" competition. Loads of over enthusiastic parents voted over and over for their kids' school. When the BBC checked out the voting, they ended up discounting the public opinion and getting their own panel to decide..

    The Dog in the No.1 spot doesn't even look like snowy though

    Hmmm, how about all the other forums on the net.

    Or strike a deal with scan/yoyo-tech that every person ordering an item HAS to vote for dog no.4



    OR, we could just keep voting over and over again as that works to.
