yeah it's just a net-voting-battle ...who cares? WID is #1 single, that's what's important
Yeah for sure but it could be nice to have a "What I've Done" video day.
1. The reason LP are losing is cause' the Ev' video is better than the LP one, not cause of bots... (I know that's opinion and I voted for LP outta loyalty but I'm not gonna lie and say I think WID is better cause I personally think the video sucks :|)
2. To those saying vote 10 times an hour or delete your cookies or whatever... are you serious? People have better things to do than help LP win this Micky Mouse contest that means nothing. And why do people even care THAT much?
3.And people saying omg the Ev' video is just her singing in a cave, it sucks! erm, wasnt Crawling just them singing in an Ice cave? Papercut in 3 rooms? In the end in a CGI desert? Don't slate the Ev' video for just being performance footage covered in effects.
Evanescence's video owns the LP one (in my opinion) and in the opinion's of many others it seems... so chill... it isn't really that important.
The "cheat" is simple, you just have to clear the cookies and reload the page to vote again.
I guess Ev. fans have abused of this method. There are messages everywhere to vote for LP (lp.com, every fan site, fort minor and LPST newsletter) but Ev goes on to lead.
You better chill. Writing such a long post about something not important.
Anyways, Ev is cheating. I looked @ their forums ( ) and they had some macro things etcetera....
Not nice, MTV should know better!
I went on the the mtv battleofthevideos site, to see if there was any cheating. And there probably is looking at this.
I refreshed as much as I could, and what I found was this for ev and LP:
LP ------ Ev
Not hard to see that LP is consistent and Ev can be consistenly low, then go up about 300 in 1/2 a minute or something. I don't think this is a coincidence for some reason...
you people are fucking ridiculous. NO ONE IS CHEATING. Evanescence has a shit load of fans as well and I'm sure a lot of LP "fans" aren't really voting because this contest doesn't mean anything. The fact of the matter is, Evanescence fans think this matters a lot and they're all voting multiple times. They aren't using bots, they aren't rigging the polls, they are just plain winning by doing what happens in every poll-based contest like this one.
However, I just went to the evanescence fan site that I usually go on and they're talking about how the LPU is discussing using "bots" when the Ev fans aren't even doing that. "OMG THEY'RE WINNING, THEY MUST BE CHEATING, WE MUST CHEAT TOO" No guys, just no.
You people need to get over yourselves and realize that this doesn't really matter.
I sort of agree with that.
There are LP fans that are cheating as well as evanescence fans. I am not blaming all evanescence fans for cheating, but think that there is a few sneaky ev fans cheating a lot. I don't doubt that there are no lp fans cheating and even lil mama fans, but what i think is maybe 1 ev fan is cheating a lot more than the lp fans. But I suppose there is no such thing as a fair vote. We will never know who truly won, Ev may have won anyway, so it's not like we lost because of bots. But I also love evanescence, and as an ev fan, I still feel evanescence is cheating. Most of my friends prefer linkin park to evanescence, nd althouh ev are good, and the video is also good, I do not think they should win.
While I agree this doesn't matter whatsoever, you cannot possibly tell me that the ratio of Evanescence fans voting is 600% of the number of Linkin Park fans voting. Do not underestimate the blind loyalty of some Linkin Park fans (LPMB, LPU). Remember the Viewer's Choice Award?
How are you so sure there isn't cheating? I'd go to EvBoard to find out, but they don't seem to want to send me my confirmation email when I register. Somebody else should try and do a little snooping to see whether or not they're manipulating the system.
yeah, but the LP videos have a story to go with it.......the Evanescence video has no story....or has one that is very small and pointless. The video is just her singing and acting like a stripper...
I was just on the evanescencewebsite fan site message board, which they had a 17 page voting thread about it and they were laughing at the LP fans that thought they were cheating. They even discussed the option of not voting for a day, just to let LP catch up, but of course they didn't do it.
I honestly don't think they're cheating. If anyone cheating, it's with MTV but I don't know why MTV would cheat.
To me, going to the EW fan site MB instead of EvBoard is like coming here instead of the LPMB/LPUMB to see if there's cheating going on. There's an upper echelon of mature fans that stray away from the main channels.
I'm willing to agree they may not be cheating, but I don't feel I can until I see it's not happening on EvBoard.
Eh, true. I never really thought about the EvBoard because I've always heard the mods there are complete assholes. It's very possible that the mods there could be using bots without talking about it or anything because it just seems like something they'd do from what I've heard about them. I just don't think the average Evanescence fan would go through the trouble of using bots to win this.
As long as Lil Mama doesn't beat LP, I could care less who wins.
Lipgloss is the dumbest, and I repeat, dumbest video I have ever seen in my life. The song is even worse. What is she 12? Where the heck did Lil Mama come from anyways?
Horrible video and song. Worse then Glamorous.
I voted LP, not impressed with Evanescence video. It's OK, but I agree it's just her acting like a stripper. WID has so much more meaning, for the song and the band. Much more impressive video.
how have you been voting so much? I voted once, and now it will not let me vote again!
Erase your cookies after every time you vote.
I have an idea..lets all vote for Lil Mama for the hell of it , jk, whatever i don't care if lp wins or not..they still kick ass..
Yes I am serious, and in my spare time why not do something to help promote Linkin Park as much as I want? Also, it's not a process that takes very long. In a minute you could vote several times already, so why the hell not? El-Oh-El.
The evanescence video is sloppy and all over the place it seems, and whatever the message the video is trying to imply..well I just don't see it.
This contest doesn't matter. Evanescence's video is better than Linkin Park's because it appeals to a majority of the public view, not all who votes for Evanescence are fans but more of those who are interested in the video content. Now that I look at it again, Linkin Park's video is not up to standard to the public media in amazement or grand or anything compare to their previous videos like Breaking The Habit or Somewhere I Belong lacking in creativity or, whatever you want to put it in.
i love how LPA currently has FIVE lpstreetteam links on their homepage! Someone is going to win a signed LP Guitar.... lol
