I was disappointed to see that YAFGC did not make the ballot for ComicMix March Madness. There seem to be some regular contests such as http://topwebcomics.com/ which allows one vote per computer per day for the months listing. I have just voted for YAFGC which is number 180. A bit of organised ballot stuffing might get it into the top 100 and the rules seem to almost encourage this only bannign trolling other comics boards. The question is whether BK and DM would approve of an attempt to bringt attention to YAFGC in this way?

We used to have a vote link, but I guess it got trimmed in one of the site redesigns.

And what do you mean 180? I see it at 172. :mrgreen:

The one vote per computer a day does, of course, allow for fixing on a grand scale. If you have a couple of students who are into the same thing, they can spend an evening going round campus chatting with each other as they log onto every computer in every computer room and ballot stuff.

177 by the time I checked it.
Surprised to have made the list at all, actually. But pleased.

we had vote buttons for a while, but webstats showed that even those sites we were top-whatever on, brought us maybe one or two hits per day, so it didn't seem worth the page real estate. Does anyone actually read those sites?

This si the first time I looked at the site. I only saw it mentioned because people on the OOTS forum thread for the ComicsMix March Madness linked Rich's post in which he said he did not want people voting for oots on topwebcomics as other people require the attention more.

We're talking eleven months away but if YAFGC is somewhere around 175 on topwebcomics, it might have a chance of making the top 128 for next March Madness if we remember to organise then.

The Vote buttons are in the forum page. I think being in the top 100 helps, based on what i read on other sites.

I think that voting from work and from home would be more than enough.
