Been texting since the voting started. I figure I’ve done maybe 500 texts or so.
Whenever I think about it, I send a message.
What’s the deal with unlimited voting? How hard is the captcha on the website? This strikes me as something that could be gamed.
You could probably hire one of those gold farmer companies for $50/day to just solve captchas and vote for Terrace.
One of the organizer guys from Terrace was on the CBC yesterday talking about voting. He said they had figured out that with a blackberry you could send in text message votes 90 at a time.
If I wasn’t worried about the cost to text I’d just sit myself down with a good movie on a hit the resend button over and over–I hope Terrace gets it.
just go on the unlimited plan and take it off after voting . you’ll just pay a prorated amount for the plan
You, my friend, have been hiring the wrong gold farmers.
Also, that is in fact an interrobang.
A friend of mine with a Blackberry voted 2500 times the other night while she watched Slumdog Millionaire! haha
Because it’s Terrace, BC running…we will probably see Vancouver vs a rival team.
id be happy to see a intrasquad game. loved it when training camp was in victoria neat seeing training camp
I would love to see any of those, but I don’t think Toronto would come this far out for a pre-season game?
Does anyone know how the exhibition games went in any of the other cities/towns that previously won Hockeyville?
Online voting goes until 10:30pm tonight… make sure you vote as much as possible on this last stretch!!!
Good question…this is what’s on CBC’s web page on past winners.
