    i voted 5 times and the vote count hasnt changed.. it may take it a min to update everything


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    You need to clear the cookies out of your browser and then set the privacy setting on "block all cookies."

    Here's a message I posted in an earlier round about a trick I've been using to vote multiple times. Maybe this will work for you:

    1) Open Internet Exlporer. Got to Tools/Internet Options/Browsing History and delete all cookies.

    2) Then go to Tools/Internet Options/Privacy and set your privacy setting to "Block All Cookies."

    3) Navigate to the CBS Sportsline Iowa State/Coastal Carolina mascot challenge page.

    3) While still keeping your Internet Explorer browser open and running, open your other browser (e.g., Firefox) and navigate to the Iowa State/Coastal Carolina mascot challenge page.

    4) Using Internet Explorer, vote as many times as you want. Because you are blocking incoming cookies, you will not get a page telling you the vote totals after you vote. You will instead find yourself back at the voting page. To vote multiple times in rapid succession, just select the Iowa State button and hit "submit" to your heart's content.

    5) Keep track of the vote totals on your other browser by voting for Iowa State once, which will place the cookie on THAT browser that gives you the vote total and keeps you from voting again. Click "refresh" every so often to see how the vote total has changes. Keep in mind that the CBS Sportsline vote counter refreshes only every 5-10 minutes, so it will probably take a while for you to see a change in the vote totals.

    If you have any questions, feel free to PM me.

    [quote=BvK1126;132008]You need to clear the cookies out of your browser and then set the privacy setting on "block all cookies."

    I have posted this on the other Mascot Poll thread, but think I have a way to build upon the trick that everyone seems to be doing by blocking cookies and then clicking submit multiple times before the page reloads such that we get multiple votes per "official submittal".

    There is no need to lose sleep over this. You don't even have to attend your computer to vote multiple times. Just disable cookies like the previous posters have said. Then click the Cyclone radio button, tab over to the submit button and then just hold down the enter key. The page won't reload until I let go of the enter key (this is in Firefox, but I assume it would work in other browsers). So if the theory is correct that each vote counts, then we can all just put something heavy down on our enter key to keep it pressed and go live our normal lives (you just can't use that computer much for anything else while you are voting ).

    No, DON'T DO THIS.

    MANUALLY vote. This most likely would be considered cheating. (leaving something heavy on your enter key and leaving your computer, I mean)
