Re: Kids' TV Champ - Radio Times vote

Blimey, that was going to go down to the wire! I'll take that as a reward for all the hard work - particularly last night and rush hour this morning (when I was surprised and delighted to see us pulling away again). KM may not be a household name in the same way as many of the generation-spanning sh...

Re: Kids' TV Champ - Radio Times vote

If this goes to the wire, bear in mind that votes may still be accepted for a short time after 1400. One round last week ended at 1420.

I'm now in the office but will continue to do what I can.

Re: Kids' TV Champ - Radio Times vote

Afraid I'm going to have to now leave this to the night shift - if there is one!

I'll see what morning brings...

Re: Kids' TV Champ - Radio Times vote

I guess they just really, really want to see the 1980 series of sooty, or whatever it is they've been promised.

Re: Kids' TV Champ - Radio Times vote

Yeah, I feel like the sooty vote starts creeping up whenever I turn my back for a minute. People on their FB page are talking about taking the day off tomorrow to vote! I can't compete with that level of dedication!

Re: Kids' TV Champ - Radio Times vote

Ok, this is still like wading through treacle but we are beginning to make progress.

Bear in mind sooty took 7% off KM overnight yesterday so let's try to build up a really good lead!

Re: Kids' TV Champ - Radio Times vote

It does seem possible to circumvent the cooling off period but I just think not enough KM fans have voted multiple times...yet!

Re: Kids' TV Champ - Radio Times vote

The comments on the sooty FB page are full of people saying they've just voted LOADS (in capitals).

If, for example, everyone who attended the KM convention votes LOADS this evening I'm sure we could turn this around. That will require a time commitment obviously. I have a free evening...

Re: Kids' TV Champ - Radio Times vote

Yes, we creep ahead by half a % over an hour or so, a call then goes out on that sooty FB page and it swings back at an alarming rate. They must have several people who vote multiple times and police the poll religiously. Who'd have thought sooty had such a militant fan base ?! Are there really more...

Re: Kids' TV Champ - Radio Times vote

Hmm, think I've found a way round the cool down period - but maybe that's going too far!

Re: Kids' TV Champ - Radio Times vote

The sooty FB page is an interesting read - they're taking this poll v seriously! They offer the 'unlocking' of content for each round sooty gets through, encourage people to vote multiple times by refreshing the page and even told people to vote for looney tunes in the last round to give sooty an ea...

Re: Kids' TV Champ - Radio Times vote

Given the rate at which this is moving there must be a dedicated team of sooty spammers. I noticed a similar trend yesterday evening - and the overnight movement suggests more going on than votes from the casual sooty fan. Would be a great shame if a handful of individuals manage to take Knightmare ...

Re: Meetup: Weekend of 28 Feb 2015 in York

All being well, my wife will be giving birth to the latest KM fan in early March, so I don't think I can commit to this. Sounds fun though !
