in reply to Casting One's Vote in the Boothe of Voting (twice)

It appears to be IP based. I voted several days ago, tried again just now and at the top of the graph is the message:

You have already voted from that IP (

You'll notice that Anonymous Monk is capable of voting, which means it can't be purely login based.

    Does that mean that since my company works through a proxy, that only one of us can vote? Since I haven't been mysteriously blocked, I guess the other Perl addicts don't vote (or don't vote faster then me). Hmmmm. Gotta tell them to come here again.

    =Blue might be eaten by a grue...

      Perhaps we can argue that voting is only for logged-in monks, or maybe AnonMonk gets only one vote. Then we can get one vote per monk, not one vote per IP.

        /me agrees this would be preferrable. Or using login name if you're logged in, and IP if you're not. I don't know how many people would actually go through the trouble of voting unlogged in, then revoting.

        But I generally agree that AM should only have one vote. And it goes to whoever gets there first.
