but is like this if some else see a vote on you project they will want to know why somebody vote for you that is why I encourage all fellow modders to cast a vote to their own project... right now I don't really need to cast a vote on my project because is posted in almost 25 Modding Forum across the globe and I enter the competition looking for friendship like yours and other nice modders that I meet over here... prize is the last thing in my mind... there is not prize on earth bigger as when somebody comment on your log and like and understand the hard work put into it... I respect everybody so I can be respected aswell...

Modding is an universal language now but only those with a pure heart will understand!!!

Masbuskado... from New Mod City


You surprised me Masbuskado, well spoken and unexpected on my part to hear you say this, as bro nicky said. I guess we are wrapped up in mods literally. Kudos for deep thought, passion, friendship, learning and the search for the "right thing". You have my respects and admiration!

BTW, the rules state that one cannot vote for oneself, I just had not seen them. You and I can relax a little too as too many votes (abnormal amounts) will get a contestant and his mod disqualified! That was unexpected, I bet, and a slap in the face of "farming" and those that would discredit a prestigious contest by using it.

And sunny, before anything, the rules also state that the voting is secret. I know you can't contain yourself and are about to burst! Kidding, I know that some would want to know right away but we have to hold our horses, heheh. In a few more days we shall know. Now THAT is a cliff-hanger.

Hi All,

Cooler Master has received all of your concerns, and our team is currently conducting reviews and assessments on whether there have been cheating activities for any mod entry. Appropriate actions will be taken as necessary.

Regarding the voting counts, the current numbers are only a small portion of votes that we expected to see by the end of the voting period. For the next 14 days, we will see a lot more votes being casted.

Therefore, please try to refrain from taking any excessive actions such as pulling out of the contest or making personal attacks against any modder. And thus, further inappropriate comments will be edited.
If you have any further concern, you can contact Cooler Master staff directly.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Hi All,

After an extensive reviews and discussion, our review staff had agreed on the following assessment:

• Mod entries from Vin621 (Cosmos VX), Cham_E_Lyon TPC (Revention Sileo 500), and sunnyXtremist (Satella) will be disqualified from this contest due to the below reasons.
• Legit voters for the above 3 mod entries will still be eligible for a chance to win prizes randomly selected from the voters pool.
• Votes casted for the above 3 entries, legit or not, will not be reoffered to the voters nor distributed to any other mod entries, and counted as dead votes.

1. An overwhelming amount of new accounts were created and voted for the above 3 mod entries within a short period of time. (more than double the total amount of votes were casted for the above 3 mod entries within the time frame of 1 hour, which is considered a result of an excessive promotional activity)
2. Many of the above accounts do not have a legit CM Forum account.
3. Almost all of the above accounts were found to be members from the same online community.
4. Our system detected many of the above accounts were created using the same or similar name, email, or address.
5. Warnings were issued during the voting period for submission deadline extension, but similar inappropriate promotional activities were carried on in this voting process.
6. Please also find below screenshots and links of reported and reviewed inappropriate promotional activities:

http://www.tipidpc.com/viewtopic.php?tid=195154&page=2
http://tantricmodz.com/node/28
http://omgili.com/

a. All new premium membership members listed on the same online community were found to have voted for the above 3 mod entries.
http://www.tipidpc.com/viewtopic.php?tid=93289&page=991

b. Vote supports from members of the same online community were found solely targeted for the above 3 mod entries. In addition, the modders were also asking for vote supports solely for the above 3 mod entries:

** We urge all participants to terminate any online promotional activities from this point on as they may escalate to be excessive promotions even without any such intention.

** This thread and all other Modding Contest Worklogs will be locked until October 15th, 2009. Please direct all your comments and concerns to CM staff directly through PM or email.

Thank you for your cooperation.
