I really hate to have announced winners and have to change it but I think it's more important to try to prevent the cheater from winning.

Can't bielieve someone would spoil the hole contest for one freaking disc.
i say go for it. make it right if you can.

Ugh. I was afraid of that. Maybe you should set some random limit on IP appearances? Like, if an IP address voted more than 3 times, you remove the IP from that round. I say that because it's possible that a husband/wife, parent/child, or group of siblings could all vote from one IP address. But there's obviously no way one IP legitimately votes 5+ times.

Sorry, Menace. This most sucks. I wish I could help you sort through this all.

That's so freakin' weak. I bet it goes back multiple rounds. Sorry Menacewarf. Thanks for doing all of this.

Yea I complained to survey monkey but they said screw off essentially because they allow the same IP adress due to a bunch of coworkers in one building having a single IP adress and which is why they use cookies instead, and which made it easy for whoever decided to cheat. they said an email invite would be the only way to ensure this didn't happen (and that wouldnt work for us) so I told them I will definitely be using a different site in the future.

The final three rounds I can find heavy cheating. Prior to that their is either none or much less. I'm still sorting through it.

Also the ironic twist is that the cheater got so brazen in that final round and pumped roc up so high, that that is how they ended up getting found out. Ifnthe results were closer I would never have been spurned by you guys to start looking through the IP addresses.

I came back to check the thread an hour later and...
What is this???
Cheating on a freaking disc golf bracket contest that costs nothing to enter???
Wow, some people.

I stand by Menacewarf in whatever decision he makes to work this out, even if it means me not winning or being in the top 7 for that matter.

What a nutbuster. People suck, Menacewarf. Your dilligence and dedication to the pursuit of righteousness is to be lauded. Again, thanks a ton, this was fun.

Those results will likely change as I am going back and deleting all duplicate IP addresses. Round 1 seems clean. Looks like the cheater got the idea in round 2 and ramped up the amount of cheating each round until by the last round their were more fake votes than real.

Sorry I didn't catch this earlier. I just had a bit too much faith but I should know by now....always be vigilant.

Sucks that people didnt respect all the hard work you put in Menace. It's a bit sad how oblivious people can be to sincerity.
